TV FAB: Kelly Rowland QUITS "X-Factor" + John Legend SIGNS ON For ABC's "Duets"

 

R&B starlet Kelly Rowland won't be returning to the UK's version of "X Factor" next year. Get the deets inside and also find out about John Legend replacing Lionel Richie on "Duets."

 

Kelly Rowland has made it official that she will not return as a judge on the U.K. version of The "X Factor" this summer.  A spokesperson for the BBC said, 

"Kelly has not been able to agree a deal that fits into her autumn/winter schedule, so sadly cannot accept a place on the 2012 panel."

But the word on the street is that Kelly didn't get offered the type of money she wanted.  Sigh......

 

In other music news....

John Legend has been added the the cast of ABC's "Duets."  The singer, who is replacing Lionel Richie, joins Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke on the upcoming summer series. 

Hmmm....it could be good to see John and Robin do a few duets throughout the course of the show.  

 

BONUS:

 

In other Kelly Rowland news, she stars in Trey Songz latest video for which he just dropped a sneak peek. Tune in to BET's 106 & Park on Friday, May 4th for the world premiere of Trey's "Heart Attack" video in full.

Kelly is a hopeless cause. I

Kelly is a hopeless cause. I bought both albums WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! No matter how hard you try w/ this girl she always seems to FAIL. First w/ the show trying to be like Project Runway and now the Ex-Factor she just can't get it right no matter what! Even w/ the bad hair styles and all I always wanted her to succeed but I guess you have to want to succeed bad enough for yourself. I don't know what to say about this girl. Even w/ Matthew Knowles gone she still can't WIN!

Kelly didn't quit, she was

Kelly didn't quit, she was fired and replaced with a previous judge who is also Simon Cowell's ex girlfriend. During most of Kelly's stint it was clear she wasn't really connecting with the audience, it was a no-brainer she wasn't coming back. And her trip to the US when she had to stay because she got 'flu' apparently sealed the deal to not inviting her back. Sorry, but she didn't have a choice in 'not coming back', they didn't want her and no-one here is losing any sleep over it.

This is why YBF loses

This is why YBF loses credibility. Every other blog and news outlet is saying she was fired. The YBF is really a paid advertisement site for some celebs to shine them in a positive light instead of speaking the truth.

You are so right. if you

You are so right. if you notice she will take the most negative story about sum celebs " Beyonce" and turn it into a positive story but will ignore good news stories about others " Rihanna " and only post the negative shit like her smoking, cussing some one out or bad behavior in general. She is so bias with her fat ass. and that was not a compliment.

Yea right Kelly didn't quit

Yea right Kelly didn't quit she was fired I read that she trying to play it off by saying she quit whatever.

@Natasha, Kelly Rowland did

@Natasha, Kelly Rowland did NOT "quit" X-Factor U.K. -- she was FIRED! Here's the proof: (1.) "But now it appears Kelly Rowland may have actually been dumped from the panel so show boss Simon Cowell could pursue former judge - and flame - Dannii Minogue to make a comeback," (2.) "And her departure was inevitably left down to Simon Cowell, who reportedly felt she had failed to connect with viewers." (3.) "The 31-year-old singer also reportedly tried to demand that her £500,000 pay be tripled if she made a return this year." A source said: “Kelly was never given a contract to look at by bosses. Simon has remained a big fan of Dannii’s and wants her back.” Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2137739/Kelly-Rowland-left-... X,Y,"and Z"

So Simon told that ho , in his British accent, have a cup of tea and a crumpet and take that azz right back to the USA on the fastest American Airlines. Kells girl you were in over your big azz weave.

That show was the reason why her album didn't do well. She spent most of her time in Europe instead of promoting and doing live performances on television in the US. Glad to hear she is working on another album & that teaser of her & Trey is just too cute. I wish them well...

Bitch please her album sucked

Bitch please her album sucked and it didn't sell cus no one was checking for it plain and simple. I love how y'all will make up bull shit excuses for the dark skinned singers but would knock a bona-fide star like Beyonce because 4 didn't have a lot of # 1's. Kelly ain't that great just a lot of hype bcus y'all dark butts have crowned her as your spokesperson.

You gotta be crazy. Kelly stays working. Im sure she does have plans for the entire year going into the next and so forth. The bottom line is Kelly really doesnt have to work if she doesnt want to. She is sitting on millions and the fact that you arent proves that instead of assuming her schedule isnt jammed, maybe you should be planning your own and praying you ,make atleast a small fraction of what she HAS already made over the past 17 years.

Wonder of that 'duet' joke

Wonder of that 'duet' joke was punn intended. Anyway, I was never for Kelly joining XFactor anyway after much hard work at getting noticed as a single artist, and right when she cored a number one, she took a job for has beens. Because of that, she only had one hit off that album. She needs to focus on her career before the steam dies back down.
