Are Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio Joining "The X Factor"?

Laura Cavanaugh/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Has Simon Cowell found two new judges for The X Factor? is reporting that Kelly Rowland is in final negotiations to join the panel of the Fox singing competition, which currently has two vacancies due to the departures of Britney Spears and L.A. Reid.

The one-time Destiny's Child member served as a judge on the British version of The X Factor in 2011.

The website further reports that Mexican singer Paulina Rubio is also close to joining the U.S. X Factor.  Both artists reportedly will finalize their deals as early as Monday.  The Hollywood Reporter adds that the two should be on board by Tuesday, when auditions will be taped in Charleston, S.C.

If Rowland and Rubio are indeed added to the show, they would sit alongside Cowell and Demi Lovato, who's returning for her second season. 

The X Factor will be back on Fox this fall.
