Look out Miley Cyrus — you’ve got some major competition on the twerk-front!
During the LA auditions for X Factor season 3 on Thursday, new judge Kelly Rowland broke it down on stage and started twerking for the audience.

The 32-year-old danced with a fellow contestant — and by the looks of the pics below, they had a total blast. The former Destiny’s Child singer should also be commended for being able to twerk in platform booties. What a work out! (P.S. we totally LOVE that dress)
Twerking aside, X Factor is going to be quite different this year. Instead of the judges' panel consisting of two men and two women, judge Simon Cowell is now outnumbered by his female counterparts, Demi Lovato, Paulina Rubio, and Kelly. Paulina and Kelly replaced L.A. Reid and Britney Spears.
“The women are outweighing the diva,” Demi teased to Life & Style. “But it's fun and we're having a great time together and I really, really do feel that every time I come to set — or wherever it is — that I'm seeing family.”
And Simon loves the new arrangement. "I really do like these three girls. I respect them," he told Life & Style. "It's just a very different experience."

Not only are the new judges fun, but according to Kelly, the talent is pretty great, too.
“There's a resurgence. There's a younger energy, a newer generation and they're coming with a vengeance,” she explained to us. “They come in and slay the whole house down or they sing you until you're crying. It's the craziest thing."
The new season of X Factor premieres in September on Fox.
