Britney Spears may have left The X Factor judging panel, but Wednesday's season 3 premiere was still a girls' night.

Simon Cowell was joined by three talented female judgesDemi Lovato and newcomers Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio – and female contestants also ruled the the stage on opening night.

Lillie McCloud, a 54-year-old Florida mother of three and grandmother of seven, took the stage in a leather bodysuit, looking half her age and a little like Halle Berry in Catwoman. She belted out "Alabaster Box" by CeCe Winans, bringing Rowland to tears and prompting Lovato to say, "I feel like I'm listening to Whitney!"

Good looking guys may have an advantage at auditions for season 3 of The X Factor.

"Basically, if you're a male with at least one leg, you've got a really good chance of going through with these three," Simon Cowell says of his new panel, which includes returning judge Demi Lovato and new additions Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio.

Cowell's female costars looked friendly and united on stage, taking photos together and chatting when the cameras stopped rolling during auditions at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y., on Thursday.

There's going to be some girl power on The X Factor this fall!

Kelly Rowland and pop sensation Paulina Rubio will join Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell at the judges table when the show returns, FOX announced Monday.

"It's taken more than a decade, but I'm delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!)," Cowell said in a statement. "Paulina and Kelly both have great taste and massive experience in the music industry and together with Demi, this is going to be a fun panel. It just feels like the time to do something different."

Rowland, 32, was a judge on the U.K. version of the show. "I am very excited to be reuniting with Simon Cowell and The X Factor family,” said Rowland in a statement. "It feels great to be able to take this journey here at home in the States!"

Out & About with Ashley Olsen

While twin sis Mary-Kate attended to some "personal business" at home in L.A., Ashley Olsen kept up her New York socializing, hanging out on a recent night with Jack Osbourne and a few other friends at New York hotspot Bungalow 8. She bobbed her head constantly to the music (mouthing the words to Jet's "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?"), chewed gum and listlessly tapped her fingers on the table. On the way out with a few female friends, she paused to hug the waiter. Soon-to-be Nicky Hilton ex Todd Meister arrived and went over to greet Osbourne, but he didn't stay at the table. Also at the club earlier that night (for a party thrown by former Gucci designer Tom Ford): The O.C. star Mischa Barton, in a black V-neck dress and red silk Louis Vuitton pumps, and rockers Dave Navarro and John Mellencamp.
