KELLY ROWLAND: Headed to X Factor?...

Is Kelly Rowland the frontrunner to replace Britney Spears on the next season of The X Factor?

According to London's Daily Mail, Rowland would join Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and a still unnamed fourth judge. She knows the drill, having judged the U.K. version of the show in 2011. A source says, "Kelly know the X Factor, she's aware of what it takes to be a judge and she's also outspoken."

Even though Kelly was let go from the U.K. show, the source says that Cowell has "remained a fan."


  • Kelly Rowland is really on the come-up these days. 
  • Interesting how Kelly has gone from quiet to outspoken without seeming obnoxious. 
  • Not many people get fired by a U.K. version of a show but later get hired for the U.S. version.
