The third season of The X Factor will premiere tonight on Fox and Kelly Rowland, who judges alongside Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and Paulina Rubio, is excited about the new season.

The one-time Destiny’s Child member, who served as a judge on the British version of The X Factor in 2011, tells ABC News Radio that the show will be less serious and ultimately more enjoyable to watch this year.

“We’re having a blast to be completely honest, so we’re just making this one about fun this year,” she says. “I think that with some of these shows, like, the fun has been sucked out, like what we originally saw, you know.  Everybody is a critic now, and they really aren’t.”

She goes on to add, “I just think that’s it’s really important for people to see that America’s got talent, this is our talent growing here and we have to support them, especially if they’re darn good.” 

Hosted by Mario Lopez, the two-night season premiere of X Factor begins tomorrow, September 11 on Fox at 8 p.m. ET. As previously reported, the grand prize has been reduced from a five-million-dollar recording contract to one million dollars and a recording contract.
