Kelly Rowland & BET Announce Open Casting Call For New Girl Group

Published: Wednesday 7th Oct 2015 by Sam

Do you have girl group ambitions? If so, Kelly Rowland and BET are looking for you!

As reported, the singer – who has nabbed Grammys both as a solo artist and as a member of Destiny’s Child – is the face of a new talent search titled ‘Chasing Destiny.’

The show, which is set to air in early 2016, will follow Rowland as she pieces together music’s next big girl group.

In a unique move, reminiscent somewhat of Diddy’s Making The Band (which of course birthed Danity Kane), the network have announced an open casting call.

Details on how you could be apart of something big after the jump…

    These talent searches are so tired kinda like Kelly. She doesn’t even promote herself what can she do with a group kii

    • Beyhive October 7, 2015

      Girl shut up you don’t know what the hell your talking about. Kelly promotes all her projects. Talk a good Game Changed the way people look at R&B Music

    Kelly girl don’t do it these chicks gonna struggle more than you.

    • Beyhive October 7, 2015

      Really ? I don’t think so I think it’s going to be a great show. Something BET hasn’t had since The Game ( when Tia was on it )

      • Queen Molly October 7, 2015

        Well best of luck to kelly and this diaster in the making bye!

    Kelly is better off getting her own sitcom like Brandy. Talent searches are outdated and a waste of time. The group will never get off of the ground or release an album. Sorry Kellz.

    Ummm, Little Mix isn’t struggling at all. Kelly knows what she’s doing when it comes to putting together groups.

  5. #justsayn October 7, 2015

    Kelly put the girl group Little Mix together & they are very successful!

  6. Carry on October 7, 2015

    Finally, Kelly can really show herself and all her ideas with no interruptions but people is waaay off. I really wish her the best.

    Kelly will be just fine , she has connections in the music industry that will get these girls off the ground. Not to mention she put together the hottest Pop girl group Little Mix on X factor, it’s a smart business move to go from working for someone to working for yourself. I love this woman I can’t wait for the show to air. But I really can’t wait for this new album !!!! The snippets she’s been giving us has me on my toes

    • BeyRihLiyah October 7, 2015

      Wheres those same connections when she releases those flop albums and singles?

      • Beyhive October 7, 2015

        Right were she needs them thanks. When will stop trying to hold on to Aaliyah by using Rihanna & Beyonce name. The girl to gone if she was alive she would be just like Keyshia Cole , & Keri hilson DONE.

      • KellyRowlandarmy October 7, 2015

        I can say the same thing about Rihanna albums boo.

  8. BeyRihLiyah October 7, 2015

    Beyonce or letoya luckett should do this instead they are the only members of destinys child to have a number 1 album and actually went platinum

    • Beyhive October 7, 2015

      Omg this post is not about Beyoncé damn hope off my Fave P**** h**. And who the hell is Letoya Luckett ????? She’s nobody compared to Kelly Rowland so stop girl lol cute try tho.

    • Queen Molly October 7, 2015

      Hey babe we good or you still pressed?

      • Beyhive October 7, 2015

        We good sis … Make sure you watch Empire tonight tho

      • BeyRihLiyah October 7, 2015

        We are good you know its a love hate thing we have

    • gigi October 8, 2015

      In case u don’t know kelly put little mix together and they doing well. Please don’t bring in letoya coz kelly achieved way more things than her.

  9. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 7, 2015

    “Forever and a Day”, “Commander”, and definitely “Stole” prove that Kelly is a lyrical genius and still has what it takes to crack the U.S. way after her debut as a solo artist. I think she just needs to push more pop-oriented music than R&B, like what Ciara needs to do, and promote the heck out of it. Heck, she already been had the body a long time ago. Showing some more skin than usual could only help sell those pop songs a little better too, I suppose. Either way, I want to see her be exactly successful like her other two sisters, and I’m here for her, especially after she wrote that debut album.

    How can you hate on a beautiful soul like Kelly? I think this show will be great because on every X factor, Kelly knew what the F*ck she was talking about.

  11. Omega October 7, 2015

    I love Kelly, but she needs to get some other girl group vets and make this big. She was a FANTASTIC judge on both the US and UK seasons of X-Factor, but I don’t see this shining bright with her starpower alone.

    Kelly can be the Diddy, but hopefully she can nab girls from En Vogue, Xscape, TLC, Spice Girls, Little Mix, etc. for some cameos (or even permanent judging roles) and she needs a Lauriann Gibson lol. Boom boom cat those asses.

  12. DIABETES UNBOTHERED October 7, 2015

    I like kelly but shame on her for letting letoya steal her thunder as 2nd best in DC when imo letoya has a thin shrill voice compared to kelly. Girl group are relavant according to Hakeem lol at him looking for a girl group when his own career hasn’t even takin off yet… same for kelly lol she nerd to focus on her own career instead of trying to her a judge.

    • Vernetta October 7, 2015

      Kelly is too busy babysitting Blue Ivy and munching on Beyonce’s v***** to be her own woman. She hasn’t had a certified album since 2002 …. 13 f****** years! How pathetic is that?

      • my girlfriend October 8, 2015

        While ur broke ass is sitting on a PC or phone hating on kelly, she making way more that u can possibly have including ur all family… By the way kelly sold over 27 millions as solo artist not bad and she had several awards as a solo artist too. She sold more than a lot of RNB female artists.

    • gigi October 8, 2015

      Girl what? What make u think letoya is the second best in destiny’s child. Plz holla back when letoya will have a Grammy, billboard or other awards as solo artist just like kelly did and when she will have number #1 songs in America and overseas just like kelly.

  13. What now October 7, 2015

    IDK y she is doing this. If she believe she can get four or five gurls 2 where 5H & Little Mix r, I wish her well, but TBH if she can start a gurl group from ground up and make them successful, then wtf iz her excuse 4 her solo career? NO SHADE!

    • my girlfriend October 8, 2015

      Let her do what she wants it’s non of business. There is no excuse for her career she has number 1# songs, awards, platinum and gold cds, she sold over 27 millions worldwide so there is no excuse.

  14. another bty day something ain’t wrong October 8, 2015

    Congrats to Kelly and can’t wait to see it
