It’ s been a big year for Kelly Rowland.
The once-upon-a-time Destiny’s Child diva has been in the studio working on her latest album Talk a Good Game already noted for its super sexy "Ice" and "Kisses Down Low" as well as her vulnerable verses on "Dirty Laundry."
"Rowland was on the highest-rated UK season," a source close to the show told E! News. "We have a lot of faith in her as a judge."
Simon Cowell took to Twitter to tease the official panel announcement. "We start x factor auditions in charleston on Tuesday. The new panel will be announced Monday. This is going to be an interesting show!"
Sources connected to FOX say that Kelly, along with Paulina Rubio, are in their final negotiations to join the show as they work out the last contractual details.
