Kelly Rowland Leaves ‘The X Factor’


She was criticised heavily for failing to please viewers of ‘The X Factor‘ last year, and now Kelly Rowland has paid the price, and has not been invited to return. The former ‘Destiny’s Child‘ singer has left the ‘ITV‘ show today, but it is believed that Tulisa Contostavlos will remain on the panel for this series. Confirming the news, Kelly said: “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.”

Her spokesperson added: “After much speculation, we can officially confirm today that Kelly Rowland has decided not to return as a judge again for this year’s UKX Factor‘. Global commitments coupled with the show’s increasing demands this year mean that, despite weeks of deliberation with the show, Kelly has not been able to agree a deal that fits into her autumn/winter schedule, so sadly cannot accept a place on the 2012 panel. Kelly thoroughly enjoyed her role as a judge on the show, but felt that if there couldn’t be a workable solution to scheduling issues, so that she could effectively juggle her other commitments then she couldn’t wholeheartedly commit to the show this year.”

Let’s all pray that the rumours that Katy Perry will replace her are true then…
