Initially we weren’t sure about Kelly Rowland’s edition to the judging panel on the last series of X Factor.
However, as soon as the show started we warmed to her instantly and she became our favourite judge (yes, our favourite. Sorry Gary, Tulisa and Louis). Sadly we now hear that the former Destiny’s Child star is planning to quit the show in order to concentrate on her career in the States.
Simon Cowell is now thinking about replacing her with Estelle. A source said today:
"Estelle's name is very high on Simon’s list now and serious enquiries have been made as to her availability for auditions in May."
Kelly might not be done and dusted with the X Factor altogether though; it’s thought that Simon is hoping she’ll appear on the American version of the programme in the place of Nicole Scherzinger, who he sacked.
It’s like they’re playing musical chairs isn’t it? Find out more in the video above.
