Kelly Rowland May Be Taking Over For Britney Spears On The New Season Of X Factor!

Ask and you shall RECEIVE, Kelly Rowland!

The former Destiny's Child starlet was well-received by UK audiences during her stint on the X Factor judges panel in 2011, but while she only ended up staying for just one season, she expressed interest in bringing her talents back across the pond for the US version!

Fast-forward to NOW…and it appears that her wish might just come TRUE!

Producers of the reality competition's stateside version are reportedly in the final stages of negotiations with the singer, and if all goes according to plan, she'll be the lucky lady taking over for Britney Spears in the third season!

And we think it's safe to say that head honcho Simon Cowell is pretty thrilled with the news, as her salary demand of $2.3 million is MUCH less than the $15 million Miz Spears took in for her one-year commitment!

Sources explain:

"Kelly knows the X Factor, she's aware of what it takes to be a judge and she's also outspoken. Simon has always remained a fan of Kelly's and she's most definitely in the mix to join the judging panel on X Factor USA."

SUCH exciting news!

Of course, even if it all pans out as it's rumored to, there will still be an EMPTY spot on the judges panel now that L.A. Reid is gone!

FYI — Perez is still available!

What do U think? Who should join Simon, Demi, and possibly Kelly during the third season of X Factor USA?!

    From what I've seen on the UK version, she seems like a very unlikeable and obnoxious person. I wish they would start picking better judges.

    Kelly was a GREAT JUDGE IN THE UK! She made the show exciting and she brought in USA audiance! She knows what she's talking about she's been in music for years she is a HUGE STAR, and she is ENTERTAINING!!! PLUS SHE's NOT boring, at all! She should have been on the American version from the starT! She's a returning judge been in the game a long as Brit she is currently on the charts she is DESTINYS Child I say give her 10-15 million she WILL deliver!
