Kelly Rowland has hinted she may not reprise her role as an X Factor judge next year - insisting her priority is to go on tour.

The former Destiny's Child star, who has had bust-ups with fellow judges Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh on the ITV1 show, is keeping her cards close to her chest regarding rumours she would be returning in the next series.

"X Factor next year? We'll see," she told the Daily Mirror.

"I definitely would love to go on tour though, so that will be my focus for next year," she added.

Kelly, whose new album Here I Am is out now, admitted she has been taken aback by the show's intensity.

"The competition is so strong. It's really tough," she said.

However, the 30-year-old has enjoyed mentoring her remaining acts Amelia Lily and Misha B and latest evictee Janet Devlin.

"I love those girls, they too are my motivation. To see how they have grown into artists with fantastic voices, I am so proud," she said.

"I'd love to have them sing on tour with me. I mean, they would put it down. The next few weeks are going to be extremely exciting on the show, you just watch."
