7 Latino Celebs We Want as 'X Factor' Judges

New faces are sure to hit the X Factor judges' panel this season. With Britney Spears and L.A. Reid out, Fox executives are looking for replacements who can live up to Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell's vibrant personalities. We have 7 talented Latino celebs who would be great for the gigs. Who is your favorite?

1. Latinos We Want on X Factor: Paulina Rubio

Paulina Rubio, 41

The Mexican pop diva was born to rule. Besides La Chica Dorada selling over 20 million albums worldwide, she already has experience judging on La Voz…Mexico and Telemundo's La Voz Kids. According to E! Online, Pauli is already in final talks with Fox about joining the judges’ panel. There’s no doubt she would rock it out!

2. Latinos We Want on X Factor: Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin, 41

The “Livin’ La Vida Loca” singer has been in the limelight since his Menudo days as a kid. However, Martin doesn’t let his experience get to his head. He’s considered one of the nicer judges on the The Voice in Australia and has previously said, “…If you're looking for the chatty, chatty, venomous approach you're not going to get that out of me because I'm not made out of that fabric.” We think he would balance out Simon Cowell’s energy on the panel!

3. Latinos We Want on X Factor: Marc Anthony

Marc Anthony, 44

Let’s face it; the Puerto Rican salsero has a voice that is unmatched. Anthony has already served as a guest judge on X Factor and handpicked new talent with his ex-wife Jennifer Lopez for Univision’s bilingual talent competition, Q'Viva! The Chosen, last year. He would be an awesome mentor and incredible vocal coach.

4. Latinos We Want on X Factor: Gloria Estefan

Gloria Estefan, 55

The Cuban pop star is considered one of the best selling music artists of all time with over 100 million albums sold worldwide. If that isn’t impressive, Estefan also served as a judge on the CW’s music competition series, The Next.


5. Latinos We Want on X Factor: Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez, 20

The “Come & Get It” singer would have awesome on-screen chemistry with fellow judge Demi Lovato! They are besties after all! Of course, the Disney star would also offer plenty of advice on how to rule the pop world. Who wouldn’t love that?

6. Latinos We Want on X Factor: Kat DeLuna

Kat DeLuna, 25

The Bronx native is a classically trained opera singer who has enough swag to share with the entire panel! The X Factor would also be a great way for the Dominican pop star to promote her upcoming album, Viva Out Loud. Get those Fox executives on the phone, Kat!

7. Latinos We Want on X Factor: Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars, 27

The “Just The Way You Are” singer is ruling the world hit by hit! With 58 million singles sold worldwide, this pop star would offer priceless advice to newcomers on how to dominate the pop charts.
