Hot Shots: Kelly Rowland Turns Heads At ‘X-Factor’ Auditions

Published: Wednesday 1st Jun 2011 by Sam

Looking every bit the superstar she’ set to be, Kelly Rowland dazzled as she arrived at the first day of filming for The X Factor UK in Birmingham moments ago.

The 30 year old is a hot commodity on all sides of the atlantic it seems; indeed she recently #1 on the US Billboard chart with ‘Motivation’, and is now judging on Britain’s biggest show (and was reportedly paid a whopping $1 Million to do so).

    KELLY, looks so beautiful, shes well on her way and i am so
    happy for you kelly it’s funny how your beautiful vocals always stood
    out to me in dc, but that is what helps to make you the solo
    artist you are therefore keep your eyes on your career and keep working
    hard and the sky is the limit for you KELLY.

    The belly top has her looking youthful and fun. She should keep the look for the summer.

  11. Diane June 1, 2011

    Kelly would outshine Paula if she was on the USA X Factor. Not only with her looks, but her credentials. Still, I wished she was on Our X Factor.

  12. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare June 1, 2011

    Every time I see her I just smile–damn she is gorgeous!!!!!

    I’m with you @Jay Jay, I would LOVE for Kelly to be on the XFactor USA.

  17. SWEETHE♥RT (A.K.A. ICON) June 1, 2011

  24. YOUR Queen! June 1, 2011

    Her skin is gorgeous!!!! She looks radiant, things are really looking up for her and rightly so! But I don’t approve of that wig, no ma’m.

  25. DChildOfDestiny June 1, 2011

    SUPER FLY KELZ!!!! WERK!!!!!

  26. I’madiva June 1, 2011

    She looks fabulous! Congrats!

  27. Mr.T June 1, 2011

    Kelly deserves more than a 1 million, ughhh. I know 1 million is a lot, but when their paying other artists 10 million and 12 million, Kelly definitely deserves more.

    Anyway, Kelly is sooooooooooooooooo damn s***. She is a real-life barbie.
    For some reason her head looks bigger, maybe its the hair. But beautiful nonetheless

  28. MSBLACKROSE June 1, 2011

    ALRIGHT NOW MS. KELLY!!!!

  29. JUDAS666 June 1, 2011

    Surprised how little Simon pays the judges. Believe me they are not getting Steven Tyler and J Lo Idol money. Try about 1/4 to a third what they’re getting, smh.

  30. beyonce June 1, 2011

    She will never shine. Bey gave a whole year to succeed but she couldn’t. Now its too late. The hurricane bey will snatch every wigs in a few weeks.

    Its round iv lessers.

  31. diva June 1, 2011

    …and that is how you make an entrance folks and silence the critics…poww

  32. GangsterA June 1, 2011

    she looks amazing

  33. diva June 1, 2011

    I think if people had any doubt as to if Kelly would fill in those big shoes of Cheryl and Danni well there you have it, the press has been buzzing all over. it,s fantastic

  34. bey’knight brutal June 1, 2011

    this is a freat opportunity but am a lil iffy on the timing, there should be a new single on the horizon by now, clock is ticking…it’s like kelly makes one move per month when it comes to her own bizness

  35. gio88 June 1, 2011

    she should be in usa version of this show!!!!!!!

    The following is just SOME of the “brewing and intoxicating” ‘mainstream vitriol’ regarding 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland now replacing Cheryl Cole, as can be read over on TMZ…

    “I hope the show fails this year and they lose loads of viewers and money.
    Cheryl is the best thing that happened to the Xfactor and now shes gone the show will be terrible. The only reason i started watching the Xfactor was because Cheryl had joined. Now she’s not there- neither will i be, and a lot of other people i know feel the same. Well done Simon, your really making a mock of things this year.. hope you realise the big mistakes you’ve made before its too late.”

    “AH Americans ever the synics, maybe we brits should treat kelly rowland with the same distain, but as Brits we won’t but because we don’t cut from the same cloth”

    “Simon’s Rubbish

    “I am from the deep south in the United States and I have never had any problems understanding anything Cheryl said. Shame they dropped her though; that is one hot woman and I was planning on watching solely because she was a judge”

    Kelly looks amazing! Congrats to her on all of her success. Its her time to shine. #Motivation

  40. truth June 1, 2011

    Oh wow so is she entering the grand national with that gear on. Oops she’s the horse.

  41. mobwife June 1, 2011

    What is she wearing an apron? Come now Kelly I have seen you look much better. Those heels are hurt’em though! 🙂

  42. ONE2THREE June 1, 2011

    @XYZ!

    Don’t nobody know or care to know that Cheryl chick! I’m glad they fired her ass! Cheryl could never come for Nicole! If you want to see her take your ass to the UK! Oops I forgot, they don’t want her there either! Oh well, sucking d*** only gets you so far. 🙁

  43. X,Y,”and Z” June 1, 2011

    @ONE2THREE —

    If you read THOSE comments, it’s only like 70 (or so) of them, you’d see they’re mostly from U.K. fans, or should I say, FORMER X-Factor U.K. fans/supporters!

    And I’m NOT really sure if we’re on the same page. The general sentiment is/was directed at Kelly Rowland replacing Cherly Cole, nothing else! (to tell the truth I didn’t know about anyother beef Mrs. Cole had with anyone else)

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!

  44. Kelly June 1, 2011

    Black is beautiful…enough said…I hope she wont lighten her skin like her sista Beyonce

  45. Jamie June 1, 2011

    And X,Y, and Z strikes again. Didn’t you ever here about NOT hoping for someone else’s demise? You watch what happens to you. You’re a very miserable person–sorry, animal, and no good is going to come from your life. People like you do not live long. They either kill themselves or get killed. SMH @ your parents!!!!

  46. X,Y,”and Z” June 2, 2011

    (Mean while, down by ‘The Sea Of Love’…)

    @Jamie re: June1st, 8:23 pm —

    “And X,Y, and Z strikes again”

    Were you waiting for me? (totally unnecessary, but never-the-less flattering…)

    “Didn’t you ever here about NOT hoping for someone else’s demise?”

    Er…in THIS INSTANCE, when did you read where/when I hoped for someone’s demise? In THIS INSTANCE, I only repeated what I saw/read over on TMZ – VERBATIM..!!
    (I DON’T write the news, I ONLY read it aloud!)

    “You’re a very miserable person”

    Er…you have at a disadvantage, Sir!

    “no good is going to come from your life”

    Good-Better-Best, never let it rest; till your good becomes better, and your better – best..!!

    “People like you do not live long. They either kill themselves or get killed”

    (sticks tongue out!) Na Na-Na Na Na Na.. Room for rent, apply within, when I run out, YOU run in..!! !

    “SMH @ your parents!!!!”

    Just YOU keep “Cliff and Clair” outta this..!!!
    (remember Grasshopper – “he who first smelt it, dealt it!”

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!! (sharting is winning…!!!)
