Congratulations to Kelly Rowland on her new gig with X Factor USA. The Grammy-award winning singer is replacing former judge Britney Spears, who was fired after one season.

According to THP, Rowland has more than enough experience with the show since she appeared on one series of the UK version in 2011. Here is what Rowland said about the experience at that time:  “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.”

Rowland will be joining Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato. The full judging line-up is said to be announced next month.

In other Kelly Rowland news, the singer-actress was spotted with former DC bandmate, Michelle Williams at a private listening party for Fantasia’s new album, The Side Effects of You.
