With all the announcements of stars leaving and joining the judging panels of various singing competitions, it wouldn't hurt to have another, right? Well, the latest comes from 'The X Factor,' which has just announced Kelly Rowland as one of its newest judges.

Rowland, and Mexican pop singer Paulina Rubio, will be replacing Britney Spears and L.A. Reid as the singing competition's new judges, TMZ reports.

This isn't the first time Rowland has been on 'The X Factor.' The 'Kisses Down Low' singer joined the U.K.'s edition of the show in 2011 as a judge. She only did that show for one season.

Hopefully her experience will bring a breath of fresh air to the next season of 'The X Factor.'
