New X Factor Judge Kelly Rowland Twerking at Los Angeles Audition (PHOTOS)

Look out Miley — you’ve got some major twerking competition!

During the Los Angeles round of auditions for X Factor 2013 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 here, they had a total blast. Keep in mind that the former Destiny’s Child singer was able to twerk it out in platform booties and a short dress.

But forget the twerking, it really looks like X Factor is going to be totally different this year. For one, instead of having the panel split equally by gender — two women and two men — Simon Cowell is now surrounded by some very talented ladies, including returning judge Demi Lovato, new judge Paulina Rubio, and Kelly, who is a new judge as well. Paulina and Kelly are replacing Antonio "L.A." Reid and Britney Spears.

"The women are outweighing the diva," Demi joked. "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 it seems Simon loves the new arrangement. "I really do like these three girls. I respect them," he said. "It's just a very different experience."

Not only are the new judges talented, but according to Kelly, the talent of the contestants this year 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. "They come in and slay the whole house down or they sing you until you're crying. It's the craziest thing."

Season 3 of X Factor premieres in September on Fox.
