*Kelly Rowland is getting critical acclaim across the pond for her debut on “X Factor” last night.
According to the UK’s Metro Newspaper, fans on Twitter expressed their love for Kelly, with the other judges not getting as much social media action.
Radio 1 DJ SARA COX tweeted: “‘I am LOVING Kelly Rowland. That was the most eloquent way of saying ‘don’t be a massive show-off” after Kelly had told contestant Kitty Brucknall to ‘remember who you are.’”
With a new line up of judges, featuring Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh, Rowland told Now Magazine that she is not intimidated in taking the place of the country’s beloved Cheryl Cole or Dannii Minogue at the judge’s table.
“Oh, I’m not scared,” says Kelly, 30. “I’m excited! I know Cheryl is the nation’s sweetheart, but I’m not trying to be Cheryl, because Cheryl does Cheryl best. I’m not trying to be Dannii because Dannii does Dannii best. I’m just going to be myself.”
She also revealed that she would be using British stylists on the show: “‘I want my look to be grown-up and sexy, but also intelligent. And I am doing a British show, so out of respect, I really want to wear more British designers.”
