X Factor Judges


The "wildest" singing competition is back and crazier than ever!

Behold, get your first look at The X Factor's buzzed-about third season! The first official trailer for the new season of the Fox reality hit gives fans their first look at new judges Kelly Rowland and Paula Rubino, who were brought on to replace exiting judges Britney Spears and L.A. Reid.

So what can viewers expect from the newbies? Simon Cowell calls Kelly "a total professional" and says, "I think everyone is going to understand Paulina." As for Demi Lovato? Cowell claims she's a changed judge!

"Different Demi," Cowell says of the pop star. "She respects me this year."  Cue Lovato making a wiseacre remark about Cowell's age! We guess some things never change!

Of course, Cowell didn't forget to talk about himself, saying he's "now back in control," as he's shown being forced into a mini-dance party at the judges' table as a contestant performs "Baby Got Back."

Yes, it's definitely going to be a wild season!

The X Factor season three premieres Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
