FOX teases viewers of the upcoming season of "The X Factor (US)" with some new trailers. In one of the video, Simon Cowell makes a reference to last season's judge Britney Spears when he comments on a singing hopeful's awful performance of her hit "...Baby One More Time".
The other video highlights the new judging panel, which includes returning Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio in addition to Simon. The British music producer calls Kelly "a total professional" and says, "I think everyone is going to understand Paulina."
"Different Demi this year. She respects me," Simon says of the former Disney darling. He additionally claims that he's "now back in control," but the footage shows otherwise as he can't resist when the ladies force him to dance to a contestant's rendition of "Baby Got Back".
The third edition of "The X Factor (US)" will premiere Wednesday, September 11 at 8 P.M. Mario Lopez is set to host the live show solo after it's confirmed that Khloe Kardashian won't return to the singing competition show for her second season.
