The new season of “The X Factor” is just around the corner, and Simon Cowell claims he’s “back in control.”

FOX teased the third season of Simon Cowell’s singing competition series last night during the MLB All-Star Game, The Futon Critic reports.


The new promo showed a sneak peek showing off some shenanigans from new judges Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio, while showing that some things never change.  

In other words, Simon is still Simon. For season 3, he will also be joined on the judges' panel by the returning Demi Lovato. In the promo, he jokes, “Different Demi this year. She respects me.”

But it’s all in good fun, and the promo ends with Simon saying, “I love you girls.”

Also returning this fall is Mario Lopez, who will host the show solo this year following Khloe Kardashians departure after one season.

“The X Factor” will return on September 11 and 12 at 8pm on FOX. What do you think of the new judges?
