Kelly Rowland will fill Cheryl Cole’s spot as a judge on the Brittish version of The X Factor, according to Pop Eater.  Rowland will join hip hop star Tulisa Contostavlos from the group N-Dubz, Take That singer Gary Barlow and longtime judge Louis Walsh.

It was announced last week that former Pussycat Doll singer Nicole Scherzinger, who was originally tapped as co-host of the U.S. version of The X Factor, would take Cole’s spot on the American show, joining judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and L.A. Reid.
