Will love conquer all on The X Factor?
After weeks of battling it out vocally, Simon Cowell's power couple Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton, aka Alex & Sierra, have made it to the finals and are hoping to be crowned the Season 3 X Factor champs Thursday night (8/7c, Fox). They're up against Kelly Rowland's returning rocker Jeff Gutt and Paulina Rubio's Latin heartthrob Carlito Olivero. And in the case of fourth mentor Demi Lovato, well, the cheese stands alone once again.
Despite this season's low ratings, Simon Cowell is confident that The X Factor will be back for a fourth season. But whether he will return as a judge next year is a whole different story.
"The show will be back next season," Cowell told reporters on a conference call Monday, according to Deadline. "As to my role on it, I might have a...

Ready for what Simon Cowell calls "possibly the worst title" for an elimination challenge on reality TV?
Fans often feel burned when the final curtain falls on a favorite show — especially when it happens unexpectedly and without resolution (just ask fans of A&E's The Glades or, even more recently, AMC's The Killing, which at least solved its third-season case before the grim fadeout). This is not the situation with USA's Burn Notice, which has been leading all summer to a calculated big finish (Thursday, 9/8c) after seven seasons of...
Kelly Rowland, Paulina Rubio
We miss Brit face.
The X Factor premiered its third season Wednesday night with two new faces at the judges' table: former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland and Latin superstar Paulina Rubio. How do they mesh ...?
Demi Lovato, Paulina Rubio, Kelly Rowland, Mario Lopez and Simon Cowell
When The X Factor first came to the U.S., the initial reaction was, "Why?" Unfortunately, three years later, the question remains the same.
Simon Cowell sits on a balcony overlooking the pool at the Beverly Hilton hotel and lights another cigarette. It's a tumultuous time for the fiery Brit, whose baby-daddy drama is dominating tabloid headlines just a month before The X Factor is set to premiere its do-or-die third season in the United States. But Cowell has rarely appeared more at ease. "I think you're really going to like it more this year," he says of his singing competition.
After last season's addition of judge Britney Spears proved to be a multimillion-dollar dud and original panelist L.A. Reid jumped ship (Demi Lovato is the only holdover from Season 2), Cowell again restructured the panel, this time focusing on experience and chemistry. Enter Kelly Rowland, a former member of Destiny's Child who worked on the U.K. version of The X Factor in 2011, and Paulina Rubio, a Latina superstar whose previous gigs include coaching the Mexican edition of The Voice. Mario Lopez will take on full hosting duties, after sharing last season with Khloe Kardashian.
The format itself is also undergoing some tweaks. Here, Cowell and his team discuss the show's new direction.
