xfactorBEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — It’s a “girl’s world” when it comes to music, says Simon Cowell. And he says the judges panel on “The X-Factor” will reflect that.

Cowell says he will share the judges’ table with Demi Lovato, as well as former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland and Latin star Paulina Rubio. Cowell tells a meeting of TV writers that the music charts are dominated by women, so he wants female judges to dominate the judges’ panel.

Cowell left “American Idol” to launch X-Factor, claiming it would be a huge hit. But it has failed so far to reach his expectations.
