Kelly Rowland set to join X Factor USA judging panel as replacement for Britney Spears

KELLY Rowland could be about to make her X Factor return – to the US version of the talent show.

The Destiny’s Child star, who completed one series on the UK version of the show, looks set to join the panel as Britney Spears’ replacement.

Rowland decided not to return to the UK show due to global touring commitments – however it is believed ITV bosses felt she hadn’t gelled with viewers.

The Daily Mail reports that Rowland is requesting her £500,000 salary which she earned on the UK version be tripled in order to secure her for the US show.

X Factor USA has disappointed TV bosses since its debut – rival American Idol has almost triple its viewership.

Despite this, Fox renewed the show for a third series earlier this year – although this is believed to be the last throw of the dice for the Simon Cowell creation.
