Confirmed: Kelly Rowland To Judge X Factor UK

kelly rowland  Confirmed: Kelly Rowland To Judge X Factor UK

After much speculation, ITV have finally announced the new judging panel for X Factor UK – a panel which is confirmed to include Pop star Kelly Rowland!

Full story after the jump…

The ‘Motivation’ singer joins Take That’s Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and N-Dubz star Tulisa Contostavlos as a judge on the UK’s biggest show.

Speaking of her new role, she said:

“I am so excited to join The X Factor UK and be able to spend time in one of my favourite places in the world.   The music coming out of the UK 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 opportunity to hear a few diamonds in the rough.   Being a judge is never easy, but I promise to be as sternly honest as I can and also encourage everyone who crosses the stage.  I can’t wait to meet the world’s next superstar!”

It is widely believed Rowland, 30, was drafted in as the replacement for Cheryl Cole, who left the series earlier this year to join its US counter-part- only to be unceremoniously sacked earlier this week.

The Destiny’s Child star is expected to jet into the UK today ahead of the filmed auditions, which begin on Wednesday.

——————–

Though one has to seriously wonder what this means for Kelly’s project in the US (which was given a major boost after ‘Motivation’ topped the Billboard chart this week), this is undeniably a major coup for Kelly. Perhaps the biggest of her solo career to date.

Having had a brief look at the audition dates, there are actually a number of openings for Ms. Rowland to jet home and work her project Stateside too (BET Awards anyone?). In any case, here’s hoping she has airmiles, as for the first time in a long time, Ms. Kelly is a hot commodity on all sides of the atlantic. Work!

    Now it makes me have to second guess just how “Motivation” got to the #1 spot on BB’s R&B/Hip Hop chart…

    Real-time itunes sales seen in a chart: http://musicchartfeeds.com/itunes-rnb-soul-chart/

    Latest radio airplay/spins: http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/media/mediabase.cgi?fmt=U1

    So with the aforementioned said/stated, I’m really curious to see what and where ‘Motivation’ will be at for this upcoming week’s BB chart position!

    If my suspicions are right, there’s some “slight of hand” now involved! More to the point, her label/team is calling into/texting/facebook page-posting-requests at/on the different Radio Stations for ‘Motivation’ to now be played!

    If Ciara’s fans/supporters (there’s OVER 1-Million of y’all) want to NOW sit with me, strategize and do the VERY same thing, we can THEN put Ciara’s music BACK into rotation – AND KNOCK OUTTA THE BOX the likes of 30-something year-old Beyonce’s X-back-up singer Kelly Rowland – get at me ([email protected])..!!

    Long-story short: The industry is trying to come for ‘your Ciara’ and give her spot to 30-something-year-old no-talent Kelly Rowland…

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!

    I hope she’s amazing on the show and becomes a even BIGGER STAR in the UK AND USA. Hoply, she will go No.1 here in the uk and have a No.1 album. Tulisa is good too. Hoply she will be real and not be fake. Sometimes she can do that. She should be herself and tell the truth. PLUS, i hope the this is the best series EVER just to show we don’t need Cheryl or simon. I will miss dannii but she will be great with or without the X factor.

    Cheryl, if you need any career advice, call me :)

    Let me just say though, if Kelly doesn’t slay (atleast in the UK) with such a huge promotional stage that is the X Factor behind her then maybe people should stop blaming everyone else for Kelly’s failings and start pointing the finger at Kelly herself.

    “If my suspicions are right, there’s some “slight of hand” now involved!” <— LOL, isn't there always "slight of hand" involved in the instant sucess of today's and past so called superstars? It worked for JLO who after weeks of criticism concerning her "spongie" thighs and photographed gray hairs became the MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD per People Magazine. All after it was announced she would be a judge on AI! Her co-judge Steven Tyler's new song featuring NS is now racing up the charts and then there is NS. After it was annonced she was going to participate in Simon Cowell's American version of X Factor has a crap song also destine for #1!! :-) It's all a gimmick!!

    To that XYand Z fool Kelly is more talent than Ciara. The only difference between the two
    is that Kelly can sing and dance, but Ciara can dance better than Kelly but can’t sing.
    Idol helped JoL ‘s career a whole lot how do you think she got those commercial
    ads and was on television. Some people just don’t want to this girl succeed. Unlike
    their faves who copy everyone else work and try to take credit for it. Kelly never that
    she would always say that the Dream wrote this or David Guetta did that , that what
    you are suppose to do when you work as a team Period.

    and y’all saying she shudnt have taken the job need to shut up and listen to urselves talk. so because someone is successful at something in a particular area means that they shoudlnt try doing something else and in a different place. why should kellly be restricted to pleasing just one particular audience or country??? it makes no sense to me/ no one should box this woman up. Let her do what she and her team believes is the best for her life and career as a whole.

    i believe that somehow she will increase the work on her album and release some new singles, press on the videos m release that overdue album cover and fix a release date ASAP and promote her songs on the show too.

    I actually suspected this a while back that’s why kelly moved her album release date till the fall which I think is a very smart move. Her team has been quietly working behind d scenes with ITV and the X factor team working out d scheduling issues so she can do XFactor in d UK and jet back to the US for performances, either way this is a great career move for Ms Kelly as she can finally make moves on both sides of d pond. She also has a couple of songs she is featured on coming out in the US coming out so she remains relevant including d video with Lonny,s world coming out next month. All I see is a win win situation either way. Kudos 2 kells

    Good for Kelly. Nobody can say this chick doesn’t stay working. I happen to know that she has a few dates booked in the U.S. this summer. She’s the headliner for the Capital Pride event in Washington D.C. Here’s the link. You Beyonce stans are going to HATE what Steve Henderson has to say about Kelly and your “queen” Beyonce. Check it out for yourselves:

    http://www.metroweekly.com/news/?ak=6249

    Kelly is also going to be apart of an intimate event called Robin Thicke’s One Night Stand. She will be one of his guests along with Jeremih. She also has something booked at the Arena Theatre in Texas. All of these events are in June and July. I don’t know when X Factor starts taping, but I do know that Kelly still has things popping off in the U.S. Kelly is a jet setter. She always has been, so I don’t know why people think that her having this job in Europe is going to keep her from making her U.S. appearances. I’m sure it wont. As far as promo is concerned; time will tell.

    Sam, I sure hope you will be posting the episodes once they start rolling out. I want to see them if Kelly’s going to be on them. I want to know just what type of judge she’s going to be.

I’m not even american but I think it’s vital for her sucess to do so ! She needs to be on every Tv screen of each of those americans, magazine covers whatever first and then maybe going overseas. She hasn’t even released a 2nd single like come on Kelly you can do better then this !!! UK X Factor is definetly not a smart move at this point of a career

    She deserves this. If people would stop kissing Beyonces ass then she wouldnt have to be a judge but you know she’ll be good…..

    I think Kelly having a darker coloured skin has something to do with her lack of success in the UK atleast. A lot and I mean a lot of people are racist or prejudiced here and if your R’n’B is too traditional and not a dance hybrid then usually it wont do well at all.

    For you “non-fans”, Take a hike because no one cares about your opinion. You don’t work for Universal Motown/Team Kelly; therefore, you have no say-so. It’s not like you care anyway! She can judge X-Factor and still perform states side. Her being a judge will secure her promo/exposure overseas, and I do believe her team has a promo schedule line up for her in the states. GET A LIFE HATERS!!!!!

    Most of you are getting way beyond yourselves. Kelly has one hit on the record which does not gurantee her album would be a hit . Therefore, why should she not take the job as a judge. Being a judge does not gurantee success outside of that. J-lo’s album didnt even sell 100k her first week, and the sales have declined ever since. Kelly is snatching wigs, where? One single doesn’t make you a snatcher. It don’t matter who has been in the industry longer, it’s about success, and Ciara has had many hits and is successful in her own right. And to say the industry is trying to replace Ciara with Kelly is ridiculous. Beyonce don’t need a hit, she is going to sell regardless. Get real. Kelly isn’t promoting the song with live performances but her song is on radio and BET nonstop – and that’s promo! Stop trying to start foolishness. Why must other artists always be put down to make another look good. Ciara, Beyonce or no other artists shouldve even been bought up. And there was no reason for Kelly fans to knock other artists. For the record, Kelly is not a great singer, she is okay…same with her dancing. Kelly was chosen for the UK version bc that’s where she is most popular. She just got a hit in the US – a rnb hit, why would they have her on the US show? It’s not a worldwide smash. She don’t have the popularity for the US version like a Nicole or J-lo on Idol.

    You guys are so stupid. It would have been good exposure for her to be on the US Xfactor, but what y’all are forgetting is that AMERICA ISN’T THE ONLY PLACE IN THE WORLD! People like Nicki, Bruno Mars, Drake, Lil Wayne, are getting major success in the US, but not internationally. Sucky artists like Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and the BEP do and are more popular and sell more. Last time she was so focused on being an international superstar and flopped in the US, now since she’s getting shine in the US, y’all want her to just solely promote herself here? That makes no sense. I have been wondering where her promotion has been, but I think she’s about to turn up the promotion because her single has gotten major success and continues to climb the Billboard Hot 100 chart. There’s a business aspect to promoting an artist and you guys forgot that her label spent so much money for her to get promoted last year on her flopping singles! They wanted to make sure she got major success before putting so much time, money, and effort into her. Now it’s time for her to WORK!

    @Mob Wife re: May 30th 5:28 pm – EXCELLENT COMMENT..!!! You touched on stuff I’d totally overlooked! (JLO’s “retouched grey hairs/spongy thighs” had me rolling – nice visualization; good touch..!!)

    (for everyone else…)

    I think most of the comments didn’t really understand what I was trying to say(where the evidence was/is leading me…)

    Here’s the very-latest itunes chart – musicchartfeeds.com/itunes-rnb-soul-chart/
    1.) ‘Look At Me Now’ – CBreezy
    2.) ‘Down On Me’ – 50 Cents and Jeremih
    3.) ‘Motivation’ – Kelly Rowand and Lil’ Wayne

    Now, let’s look at how much airplay that song is getting – hitsdailydouble.com/media/mediabase.cgi?fmt=U1
    1.) ‘Motivation’ BUT it’s now experiencing a 8% decline in spins from 550 —> 506.
    2.) ‘Sure Thing’ – Miguel -17% 540—> 448
    3.) ‘My Last’ f/CBreezy -4.9% 408—>388
    4.) ‘Look At Me Now’ -11% 424—>377

    So, as you can see, ‘Motivation’ isn’t selling, but it’s getting airplay, and even then, it’s fading FAST. Which makes me again question “just where it’ll be come next week’s Billboard R&B/Hip Hop chart reposting?”

    Oh, BTW, I JUST checked riaa.com; to see if it has been “Gold Certified”; It hasn’t..!! So the one and ONLY conclusion one can NOW rationalize: Kelly Rowland’s label/team/fans are calling into the different Urban Radio Stations and requesting it. “Radio Airplay” is what has pushed ‘Motivation’ to #1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip Hop chart!

    (@Ciara Fans/Supporters – y’all are “sleeping at the wheel.” I’m willing to form an “alliance” with y’all, we can BOTH help each other! First we’ll go after Ciara, (knocking outta-tha-box Kelly Rowland), THEN we go after Wheelchair Jimmy/Drake! There’s a “target rich” environment out there – LET’S GO…!!!)

    Needless to say, for next week’s ‘BB repost’ – My curiosity is peaking….

    @Jesse Lopez –

    Memorial day just passed. Many fought and died on foreign shores for it: Freedom Of Choice (is a wonderful thing)!

    But what is there I say – there must be some “Fountain Of Youth” flowing through Hollywood/The Industry…

    There isn’t a statue now standing in the museums, and “everything old is new again!!”..

    1st – Lil’ Kim trying to come for Niki Minaj
    2nd – Kelis making a comeback…?! (and selling how much again?)
    3rd – Eve – Who I can’t even tell you the name of a song she did.
    4th – ‘Halle-Scary Bitter-Berry’ who just got her put back in her bed-warmer place (YT wasn’t having it and saw right through her BS!)
    5th – (And finally) 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland. If y’all think Matthew Knowles will let “the placeholder/shadow” who sung back-up for HIS ‘cash-queen daughter’ to NOW come for, and NOW take her shine? Y’all are as delusional as 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowlan herself is..!!

    If ANY of the aforementioned geriatrics were to go seaside and ‘shake their hips,’ “Beach Erosion” would be a thing of the past!

    @x y and z why you keep mentioning kellys age?? are you trying to say she is too old to be a singer? cause if so that is the dumbest thing I ever heard.you people kill me thinking you can tell someone when to retire..if kelly can do it at 30 and j.lo at 41 but ciara can’t that means age ain’t nothing but a number.I say if you look like kelly and jlo and can still perform like a true diva don’t stop until your heart does! and what I tell you about those spaced out long paragraphs girl!? cut that mess out lmao

    @Jesse Lopez –

    Again, it’s called “FREEDOM OF CHOICE”! Blame your parents (not I) if you were never blessed with a sense of wonderment and thirst for/of knowledge! (after all, RIF; in those few sentences you’ve written, you’ve managed to trip-up over your very-own logic – Kelly wants her fans ‘Motivated’, she would NOT be pleased!)

    1.) Kelly Rowland is WELL OVER 30-years-of-age! She AIN’T No Spring Chicken!
    2.) Kelly Rowland a singer…?! A dancer..?! <– 0~o ….Bwahahahah Here she is on The Graham Norton show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pERFzmAObs <– And mind you, they're using a reverb/sound treatment on her voice. Talk about your "long spaced-out mess," I couldn't even watch the entire 3-minutes, I now just had to take mercy on my ears! She was/is flat and weak!

    Kelly Rowland is about as "stage ready/worthy" as Rihanna is.
    The "Kelly Rowland recipe for success"…

    1 part weave/wig (can't show that forehead, nor that scarce/MIA hairline. While those Europeans are easily fooled, here in the U.S., your s*** gotta be just right)
    2 parts layer-upon-layer of foundation/toner (despite what's portrayed, she has blotchy uneven skin)
    1 part studio gimmickry and attach yourself to the hottest big name producer/rapper/singer. If it ain't David Guetta or Lil' Wayne it just ain't happening!
    1 part HEAVY with the PhotoShop – "real is only as real" as the software makes it!

    Add water and shake vigorously – VOILA..!! There you have it, Kelly Rowland in chapter and verse!
    But we've ALL "been there and seen that" before! With well-over a decade in the game, watching Beyonce, she should have already been evolved into a more polished performer, singer and dancer.

    ENOUGH ALREADY! GET HER OFF THE STAGE!
    Return it to someone who is far-more 'worthy' – 25-year-old (stage-ready born) Ciara!

    X,Y,"and Z" — OUT…!!!

    @jamie tell that fool something he missed. @x,y,& z what are you even rambling about now? you wanna dissect kelly and her career while defending ciara’s?? why do you hate kelly anyway, because she’s 30? because i have watched a many kelly rowland live performances and she was live and way beter than “25″ year old ciara! cici can take her overdue and repeated matrix moves on to laurieann gibson..(btw gibson is a awful choreographer) so maybe she should go to JLO.now you made me talk about ciara(sorry cici).
