Simon Cowell is gonna be outnumbered next fall, but I doubt he'll mind! With the departure of Britney Spears and L.A. Reid, Simon didn't waste anytime in filling the open spots. Destiny's Child star Kelly Rowland (Who judged The X Factor U.K. in 2011) and Latin singer Paulina Rubio are joining the panel next to Simon and Demi Lovato.
Cowell says in a statement, "It's taken more than a decade, but I'm delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!). Paulina and Kelly both have great taste and massive experience in the music industry and together with Demi, this is going to be a fun panel. It just feels like the time to do something different.”
What do you think? Will Kelly and Paulina keep The X Factor relevant next to The Voice???

No word on who will replace Spears and Reid, or whether Khloe Kardashian will return as co-host.
Who would you like to see join The X Factor??

The hottest gossip around the blogosphere right now is that the suits at The X Factor are planning to fire host Khloe Kardashian after her first season appearing on the show. Amid a shake-up at the judging table (Britney and L.A. Reid are gone), FOX execs are reportedly interested in rebooting the hosts too, and Khloe is the front-runner to get the axe.
However, a rep for the show says, "The producers have not yet made the talent decisions for this year."
What do YOU think? Sayonara Khloe?!

Canceling her Born This Way Ball tour, Lady Gaga is gonna be off her feet for awhile after she undergoes hip surgery. Docs have said the star will need plenty of time to rest, but that doesn't mean she couldn't sit in a chair and judge The X Factor, right?! With Britney Spears & L.A. Reid's departure, Simon has some shoes seats to fill for the next season of the show. So who does judge Demi Lovato want sitting next to her? Gaga of course!
"I would love to see Lady Gaga," Demi says. "I don't know if that is possible or not." We say it should be possible!

What do you think? Would Idol survive without RS?

Walking away from $15 million for sitting on a chair listening to people sing? Yeah, she knew she was getting fired!

Normal people are always a little self-conscious about their bods when we walk out on the beach, right? Not Simon Cowell and Pauly Shore. Spotted in Barbados over the holidays, Cowell's life jacket look isn't exactly "sexy." BUT he still looks better than Pauly Shore on the shore.
Enjoying the Miami beach with several gals, Pauly doesn't seem to have a care in the world… BU-DDY!
Simon & Pauly: HOT or NOT?

"Thank you so much for all the votes. This is the best day of my life."
