Kelly Rowland celebrated Memorial Day weekend by soaking up the sun in Miami. The “Motivation” singer, whose Lil Wayne-assisted single shot to No. 1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, flaunted her beach bod in a purple bikini on the sandy shores. She has been keeping in shape thanks to celebrity trainer Jeanette Jenkins’ Bikini Bootcamp Challenge.
U.K. fans will be seeing a lot more of the Destiny’s Child diva, who was recently announced as one of the new judges of Britain’s “X Factor.” “I am so excited to join ‘The X Factor’ U.K. and be able to spend time in one of my favorite places in the world,” said Kelly in a statement. “The music coming out of the U.K. right now is incredible with artists like Adele, Jessie J, and James Blake, so I’m confident this season of ‘The X Factor’ will give me an opportunity to hear a few diamonds in the rough.”
The judges panel will convene in Birmingham, England, on June 1 for the first audition, continuing to Glasgow, Manchester, Cardiff, London, and Liverpool.
