Oh no, Kelly Rowland is leaving her judging gig on the UK version of The X Factor. Now, we’re going to have to read 100 news stories on how LeAnn Rimes and Avril Lavigne are "in talks" to replace her! Will it never end!!?
The former Destiny’s Child singer joined the judges panel last year in an attempt to shake things up, but unfortunately last year received the lowest ratings of any season of The X Factor.
Kelly is leaving the show for what she calls "scheduling issues" and "global commitments." Verdict still out on what a "global commitment" is. Is she saving every single child in Bosnia?
Kelly released the statement, “I love the UK and being part of the show last year. Mentoring the girls was such an incredible experience I will never forget. I would like to thank Simon for the great opportunity and asking me to be a judge last season.”
Blah blah blah, now Danni Minogue is considering replacing Kelly. Danni is Kylie Minogue’s sister and was on the show from 2007 – 2010, effectively being replaced by Kelly last year, and now she’s back to replace Kelly.
Clearly, Simon Cowell is having some “across-the-board” staffing issues on all his reality singing shows.
Kelly says she was deliberating with the show for weeks, trying to find a “workable solution” to her “scheduling conflicts” but unfortunately her only solution was to quit. No offense, but what is Kelly doing that is keeping her so busy? I’m pretty sure Beyonce already found a baby-sitter.
