Kelly Rowland Joins ‘The Voice Australia’

Published: Saturday 24th Dec 2016 by Sam

Kelly Rowland is no stranger to talent-searches, having starred on ‘The X Factor’ and more recently ‘Chasing Destiny.’

Now, the ‘Motivation’ maven is taking her judging acumen Down Under.

Dive below for details…

It has been officially announced that Rowland will appear on the coaching panel for the upcoming season of The Voice Australia.

She will star alongside Seal, Boy George, and Delta Goodreem.


Kelly is a great TV personality, so this is a good look.

That said, she’s long overdue to have dropped new material. A reality which has us wondering how the show fits into the thick of those plans.

Time will tell.

    She literally does everything BUT what her fans are wanting from her. Maybe money is tight who knows. *shrugs*

      “Now, the ‘Motivation’ maven is taking her judging acumen Down Under”

      Key word: down under
      Aka the destination of kelly’s career since dc3 split

    • Meteorite December 24, 2016

      Chile… at least you guys got a “taste of ‘Conceited'” and what what she is bringing, (along with Instagram and Twitter post from Kelly every so often). Shoot Christina hasn’t given her fans jack! That chick post something like once every other month ?

    • BYE December 25, 2016

      Money will never be tight she wrote on D.C. Songs.. some of them songs are on tv commercials til this day. Her checks are good she just doesn’t have direction

  2. MusicFan103 December 24, 2016

    I rather she didn’t keep doing shows like these in every which territory, but I can’t say she doesn’t stay booked. Good for that Kelly.

    Still waiting for you to pour your heart into your solo music. I would love to see her get Top 10 Hot 100 hits or least Top 20s like “Motivation.”

    • BEYOU December 25, 2016

      I can’t call these staying booked, she will probably be there one season and she will be fired.

  3. Rowlandstone December 24, 2016

    Good for u Kelly.keep getting the money.

  4. Memo December 24, 2016

    Can she find some SUCCESS for herself???

    • Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? December 24, 2016

      She’s had plenty of solo success. And now she just signed on to the Voice ( Australia) ) stop hating.

    • Ughhhh December 24, 2016

      How is this not success?

    • The Wig Snatcher December 24, 2016

      Everyone has their own opinions on what success is, especially for selves. I find Kelly Rowland’s career as very successful because she managed to get more higher profile gigs after firing Matthew Knowles as her manager. She is also very successful because – dare I say – she is a dark brown sista in show business getting booked on TV shows, films and music events left and right.

      • Jamie December 24, 2016

        She’s done and is doing very well for herself. It’s her career, and she can do what she wants.

  5. Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? December 24, 2016

    Congrats Kelly.

  6. #ispeakfacts December 24, 2016

    ? She’s gonna make herself back into pre motivation all over again back when no one cared about who she was and what she did! If she stays away too long fans are gonna stop supporting! She promised fans a new album and tour seems like it ain’t happening no time soon! SMFH! Too inconsistent and too lazy! This is coming from a fan who have supported from the beginning! She doesn’t realize music opens for other opportunities outside of the music realm! Releasing a solo album is important to her relevancy!

    • Scotty December 24, 2016

      things take time.. calm tf down.

    • The Wig Snatcher December 24, 2016

      Kelly is not financing her career. She is depending on the major labels. Thus, she can only move when they want to move with her.

    • I’m Booked December 24, 2016

      I Personally Don’t Consider Booking A Gig Like This As Lazy….. But

  7. ReX December 24, 2016

    Kelly’s biggest problem is focus, inconsistency, confidence and coordination. chasing cheques all over the place. Trying to grab everything she can lay her hands on like a street hustler. I wonder if she knows that focusing on putting out a solid record and promoting it like crazy, will open doors and have the jobs and cheques chasing her, and not the other way around. lets have the music, promote, put out a solid tour no matter how small the venues are. get ur name out there and when things are slowing down witn the music, do the side projects and make all the money u want.

    Its exhausting. this feels like 2012 all over again. Here I am and motivation had the potential of being big and well received, but she dropped the ball and went after a cheque in the UK. TTT came around and had a tour planned out. she dropped that to chase a cheque again. now we have been anticipating new music that is suppose to drop since forever, and she is already gone cheque chasing. I can’t with that woman.

    • Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) December 24, 2016

      It’s sad because I really am a huge fan of Kelly + I really want her to win but I see no lies. It’s the same thing people have been saying for years but nothing has changed.

      • MUSICHEAD December 24, 2016

        I agree, and furthermore, doing Chasing Destiny was a mistake. Kelly is in no position to help a new artist when she can barely help herself. Chasing Destiny should have been a reality show about chasing her own career. It’s like trying to adopt kids when you living on welfare yo dam self.

      • #ispeakfacts December 24, 2016


        There was nothing wrong with her putting a girl group together and doing Chasing Destiny! Epic & LA Reid wanted her to find talent for the label and she did that! The girls are now signed to Epic and is touring along with R Kelly… they are also signed on to perform on Essence Fest next year! She and Frank did an amazing job with Chasing Destiny! She clearly declined to do a season 2 bcuz of this gig! The issue with June’s Diary is NOT Kelly it’s their manager and also the label! U are just trying to talk negatively about her bcuz u don’t like her!

    • Ann December 24, 2016

      So let me get this st8 The Voice calls and she’s suppose to turn down that opportunity and say no? She’d be crazy to do that! I say we will get an album late next year. Let’s just wait n see what she does before jumping to conclusions. I want new music but I’m not going to die if she doesn’t get around to releasing it right now!support her regardless! She’s a grinder we have no idea what secrets she’s keeping from us!

  8. Timago December 24, 2016

    Here we go, folks!! SMELLY FLOPLAND DOWN UNDER!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Beyoncé Jackson December 24, 2016

    What happened to that group she put together on BET?

    • #ispeakfacts December 24, 2016

      @ Beyonce Jackson

      Go on twitter and Instagram an type in June’s Diary! They are touring with R Kelly and is planned to perform at the 2017 Essence Festival!

  10. Angela Wesley December 24, 2016

    I knew that something what when she said that she would
    not being doing Chasing Destiny next year. I am all for
    her getting her coins, but I think she needs do one project
    at a time before she gets burn out. I know she pushed her
    album back to next year. But I just hope she pulls out
    something before the end of next year.

  11. IDONOTREPLY2TROLLz December 24, 2016

    Only if this was another artist you would drag them for filth. *sigh* Good for Kelly but if it’s not new music then keep it.

  12. MUSICHEAD December 24, 2016

    Kelly’s biggest problem has been choosing the wrong 2nd singles from her albums, and then when it flops (like Lay It On Me) the label shuts down all promotion. She needs to get in the driver’s seat and create her own team and label to partner with a major like Beyonce did with Parkwood. Maybe she can use the checks from The Voice to independently finance her next album.

    • Beyoncé Jackson December 24, 2016

      Kelly’s biggest problem has been her lack of confidence! I honestly think she’s content with her life and career right now. Her fans want more for her than she wants for herself. Kelly had several chances to strike the iron while it was hot, but she never took them.

    • Kb3 December 25, 2016

      She is signed to Epic records! She has to deliver music this year …

      • Timago December 25, 2016

        Epic = FLOPIC = SMELLY FLOPLAND!!!!!!!

  13. Shakira Stan December 24, 2016

    I honestly thought Kelly was the most talented of Dc3 ….sad where her career is right now.
    But I can’t say am suprised ,she is ugly, lazy and has literally no star power. Plus her biggest hit was with lil freaking Wayne.
    Humping from one judging panel to another will give her a few pay checks but won’t do anything for her dead music career.
    Beyonce stays winning while her Dc3 sisters stay buried. A mess

  14. Credits December 24, 2016

    I’m waiting for that ‘conceited’ song to drop…

  15. Devan December 24, 2016

    Kelly Rowland stays bookedt and collectinf a check.
    im also here for her going back overseas and getting international pop star T’s.
    I trust in Kelly and know she has a plan. i am confident that she is gonna pull out all the stops with this new era.
    as to the haters
    F*** em…..

  16. Meteorite December 24, 2016

    I swear Kelly and Christina are working for the same firm! Delays after delays! Tease after tease! Prolong after prolonging! It’s like really, how long does it take to create an album? I mean I understand they want their albums to be right and to be to their liking and creatively speaking they have every right to take as long as needed. However, at the same time this is a business and as history of the music industry has taught us, there is no right time to release an album. The general public will only wait so long. And the longer you wait the more ground you have cover and gain back.
    But whatever, just call me impatient! I am beyond ready for some new music from both Kelly and Christina. I got all these iTunes coins I need and want to spend.(and more probably coming for Christmas), but no one to spend them on. Ladies please come get them.

    • Ann December 25, 2016

      Listen there is a right time for everything esp in music. I don’t know about Xtina esp her being on the voice/promo opportunity train ? but kelly for damn sure don’t want to release music when a certain competitions have songs out! I think kelly knows and she’s exercising her freedom to release when she’s ready!

  17. Jamie December 24, 2016

    If Kelly doesn’t tell y’all how to stock shelves at Walmart, don’t tell her when to release music. At least she’s ballin.

  18. Gee December 24, 2016

    Kelly has the ability to be great but until she realizes her greatness she will continue to be mediocre and get mediocre results.

    • Ann December 25, 2016

      I think kelly is a numbers girl. And if the streams views sells results don’t match up she feels defeated. Her last label gave her no support cause the nunbers were not there so Ariana her label mate got all backing! She said it herself if you dont sell 100k 1st week labels stop supporting and she really needed that push! 4Yrs later and album sales are down for some of the biggest artist.Pple laugh at Ciaras sells but looks like everyone else new popstars etc followed.So she’ll be alright I think and so will JD in time.

  19. @ASAPicon December 24, 2016

    Hunny, That choppy wig is a NO in that promo shot. But good for u Kelly… Im waiting for new music

  20. We Nowqd Redv dimnobut it ash trjoan ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuno eremxil December 24, 2016

    Awesome for her

  21. IKNOWTHETRUTH December 25, 2016


  22. Fresj December 25, 2016

    Maybe Kelly knows there’s more money in doing other things outside of music.
    Streaming doesn’t pay artist jack!
    She’s 14 years into her solo career,despite her not having great sells she has had a solid career.Kelly should put out music when she’s ready.
    Even though TAGG should’ve been her breakthrough album.

  23. tld December 25, 2016

    I don’t blame her for making money; she knows albums barely sell and she’s smart enough to know that any album she brings out will barely sell; just being honest. Unless B finds it in her heart to do a DC5 album; to include all DC members; these girls have to get the money where they can. Congrats Kells go get your money and build a resume for yourself to one day get a show that will stay on air and not be cancelled.
