The X Factor USA: Kelly Rowland In, Nicole Scherzinger Out?

The X Factor USA: Kelly Rowland  In, Nicole Scherzinger Out?

Reports have it that Simon Cowell may be considering a judging panel switch on the The X Factor USA.  Rumor has it that Simon is considering switching Nicole Scherzinger for Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland.   Kelly has already served as a judge on the UK version of the show and she did a fabulous job.

The move would see Nicole head to the UK next fall for the UK X Factor and Kelly take her place on the USA show.  A source said, “Simon thinks Kelly will be amazing on the US show.  Nicole’s had a mixed reaction in the US, so there’s talk of a job swap.”

Although a spokesperson for the show claims no decision has been made yet an insider says Simon realizes he has to make some changes to the show.  The show has been popular but not a smash hit as Simon would like.

Perhaps at the same time as Simon is contemplating switching the judges he might considering getting rid of host Steve Jones.  At lease half the time I have no idea what he is saying.

What do you think of the judge switch up?   Do you think Steve Jones makes a good host?  Sound out in the comments below and let us know!
