Chances are you haven't heard too much about The X Factor Season 3's newest judge, Paulina Rubio— but trust us, this mysterious pop sensation is a bonafide superstar!

Paulina was born in Mexico and got her start as one of the OG members of Timbiriche, a 80s-style childrens pop group. This bombshell (who nabbed the number 12 spot on E!'s Sexiest Pop Divas List, FYI) started ridin' solo in the early 90s when she released her debut album La Chica Dorada, which helped make her a household name in Latin America.
Paulina's fifth studio album, Paulina, was her most successful, and earned her three nominations at the Latin Grammy Awards, as well as the number one spot on Billboard's "Top Latin Albums." Oh, and if you're a Enrique Iglesias fan, you might be interested to know that Paulina toured as his opening act back in 2002. She could be his hero, baby.
This gorgeous songstress has sold over 20 million records worldwide, but she's also a famous television personality! Paulina appeared as a judge on the second season of La Voz (Mexico's answer to The Voice), and recently signed on as a judge for La Voz Kids as well as The X Factor USA.
But that's not all, y'all. Not only is Paulina a humanitarian, this hot momma (that's right, Paulina has a toddler!) owns a restaurant, had lipstick line with MAC, her very own fragrance line — and oh yeah, she was a Louis Vuitton model.
Make sure to watch Paulina strut her stuff when she hits up The X Factor's third season with fellow judges Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland and Demi Lovato!
