Kelly Rowland Signs On as ‘X Factor’ Judge

Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland is coming to a television near you. The Grammy-winning singer has officially signed on as a judge for the U.S. edition of “The X Factor.”

Fox announced today that Kelly will join the singing competition when it returns for its third season this fall. She will grab a seat alongside returning judges Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato, along with Latina pop star Paulina Rubio.

“I am very excited to be reuniting with Simon Cowell and ‘The X Factor’ family,” said the Destiny’s Child diva, who was previously a judge on the show’s U.K. edition. “It feels great to be able to take this journey here at home in the States!”

Simon Cowell added, “It’s taken more than a decade but I’m delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!). 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.”

In addition to her new gig, Kelly will hit the road with The-Dream on the “Lights Out” tour starting May 23 and release her fourth solo album Talk a Good Game on June 18.

    Congratz to Kelly, but I really think she should just focus on her album! Last time she couldn’t really promote Here I Am because of X-Factor UK…. But Hey Kelly Get Your Money!

    It’s official, Kelly Rowland is winning! Very happy for her.


  15. why ask

    The show will NOW be cancelled after this season. They cant seem to pick the right judges to save their lives. Also it doesnt help that the show is over produced.


  16. Jay

    Awesome!!! Good for Kelly!!!! :)

    That’s a GOOD look for Kelly and the show. But Paulina Rubio? Ehh… I know they could’ve found a better replacement for LA. To people saying it’s going to be cancelled after this season, I don’t think so. It would have to be an ENORMOUS trainwreck for that to happen. The show pulls in a great number of viewers, it just doesn’t pull as many of some of the other talent competitions. But it’s not expensive to produce these shows in comparison to sitcoms so, they’re not going to cancel it because the ratings didn’t stack up in comparison to “The Voice” or any other show… YET.
