Kelly Rowland’s stay on the ‘X Factor UK‘ is over, and she’s working the media hoping to get Simon Cowell’s to hire her as a judge for ‘X Factor USA‘, but we’re hearing that she’s wasting her time.
Kelly Rowland was hoping that Simon Cowell would make her birthday wish come true by hiring her as a new judge for the ‘X Factor USA’, but that’s not looking too likely our sources say. “Kelly has been doing everything possible to get on this show, but Simon doesn’t think she’s a big enough name to sit next to him and L.A. Reid. He needed someone even bigger than Paula, so why would he bring on Kelly?”
Rowland recently tried to get Cowell’s attention in an interview on CNN where she said, “It would be awesome to be a judge over here for The X Factor,” she said. “I really enjoyed my time over in the U.K. being a judge. That was a great opportunity and a great experience, and I would love to do it again.
Earlier yesterday, THR hinted that Simon Cowell had put an offer out to Whitney Houston to be a judge on ‘X Factor USA’, but before we could respond with what our sources said, we were saddened to hear that she had died. As we’ve said before before, don’t be surprised when we report that Ryan Seacrest is the new judge.
