EXCLUSIVE

0519-kelly-rowland-paulina-rubio-tmz"The X Factor" is upping the sexy factor -- TMZ has learned Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio are signing on to be judges for next season. 

Sources connected to FOX tell TMZ the pair are in final negotiations to join the show ... with only minor details left to be hammered out before they sign on. 

We're told the deals will be done in the next few days, possibly as early as tomorrow.

Rowland and Rubio would be replacing Britney Spears and L.A. Reid ... and joining returning judges Demi Lovato and (of course) Simon Cowell.

A rep for Fox had no comment.

Looks like they are figuring out that these shows don't hinge on how big the star is. Instead it is about if the show is entertaining in its own right. That includes commentary from judges of course, but second tier stars that are good judges is better than top tier ones that are terrible.

it is going to be very frustrating to leave it to the hands of untalented people judging for a talent show. Ask Candice Glover, she says "three years!!!!"
