The X Factor 2013 New Judge Spotlight: Kelly Rowland| September 16, 2013 at 4:18 PM EST
The X Factor 2013 kicked off last week with it’s first audition episodes and of course we saw two new faces on the judging panel.
Joining Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato this season are Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio. Both add a new energy to the panel, but not everyone is familiar with Kelly and Paulina, so allow us to introduce you.
A pop star since the age of 16, Kelly Rowland grew up in the spotlight as a member of Destiny’s Child, one of the best-selling groups of all time. Her powerful voice was a key ingredient in the group’s awe-inspiring list of chart-toppers and dance floor smashes, including four No. 1 singles in the U.S. and more than 60 million albums sold worldwide.
The group received 14 Grammy Award nominations, and won three times, including Best R&B Song in 2001 for “Say My Name.” As a solo artist, Rowland has released three successful studio albums – “Simply Deep,” “Ms. Kelly” and “Here I Am” – selling more than five million records. Rowland’s first forays as a soloist contributed to the 2002 Grammy Award-winning song, “Dilemma (with Nelly),” and have been further evidenced by her gold and platinum solo albums. Her new album, “Talk a Good Game,” was released in June. Rowland also served as a judge on the eighth season of the U.K. version of “The X Factor.” — Fox
“I am very excited to be reuniting with Simon Cowell and The X Factor family,” said Rowland. “It feels great to be able to take this journey here at home in the states!”
