While Kelly Rowland may be sharing a little Beyoncé-envy in her new song "Dirty Laundry," she appears to still have "The X Factor."  Having served as a judge on the UK version of the singing competition, the Destiny's Child singer is said to be in final negotiations to join the show's U.S. counterpart next season, along with Latin pop star Paulina Rubio

Sources tell the deals should be in place this week.  Rowland and Rubio would be filling the "X Factor" panel seats left vacant by Britney Spears and L.A. Reid earlier this year, joining "X Factor" producer and judge Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato on the show's third season in September.  

Fox recently announced that Mario Lopez would be back to host the show.  Lopez co-hosted the live episodes of "The X Factor" with Khloe Kardashian last season but Khloe will not be back for the third season.
