Beach Babe!

She is rumoured to be ‘in the mix’ to replaced Britney Spears on the next season of X Factor USA. So perhaps that was why Kelly Rowland looked so cheerful during a recent beach outing.

The 32-year-old seemed positively giddy as she laughed while flaunting her slender legs on Miami Beach, Florida, with a group of friends on Sunday.

The Destiny’s Child star was seen lounging on a sunbed on the white sand, casually bending her legs in the air as she texted on her cellphone.

Kelly – who lives in Miami – wore a black bandeau bikini top, but opted to cover up with a long green kaftan that she just rolled down while she tanned.

The singer wore a jaunty fedora to block out the sun’s rays, and accessorised with a layered gold necklace and large white studs.

At one point, Kelly was seen sitting on the edge of her sun lounger, a huge smile on her face as she either listened to music or chatted to a friend using a hands-free kit.

She also hung out with some friends who sat with her on her sunbed, and at one point she was seen kissing a male friend on the lips as he bent over her.

Kelly clearly had lots of energy as she was then spotted jogging across the sand, laughing and calling to her friends.

It is rumoured that the star is set to join Simon Cowell on the X Factor USA – despite being booted off the UK show.

Simon, 53, remains a ‘big fan’ of the singer even though she was replaced by Nicole Scherzinger on the X Factor UK last year.

And Kelly is now ‘most definitely in the mix’ to replace Britney Spears on the third season of the Fox talent show, which airs later this year.

Kelly – who was reunited with her Destiny’s Child bandmates during Beyonce’s Super Bowl extravaganza in February – appeared as a judge on the X Factor UK in 2011.

However, her appearance was blighted by illness that kept her at home in the States for a week – prompting reports that TV bosses were unimpressed that she had even flown back to the US when she should have been mentoring her contestants in Britain.

Kelly also reportedly tried to demand that her £500,000 pay be tripled if she made a return.

Nicole Scherzinger Torn over X Factor Job!

Nicole Scherzinger is ‘torn’ about whether of not to make a return to the X Factor judging panel.   While the singer was thought to be a ‘dead cert’ to make a comeback on the ITV talent show, it has now been revealed that Nicole has not yet officially decided either way.   Nicole is hesitating because she has an incredibly busy few months ahead, including the release of her hotly-anticipated new album.

The source said: ‘Nicole just doesn’t know if she can do both. It really is all or nothing for Nicole – she wants to be able to give 100% to whatever she signs up for.

‘They’ve offered her a good deal but are still talking to her to work out if she can do both. She hasn’t said no yet because she loves the UK – she got an amazing reaction from the public and she has set up her home here in London.’   Nicole won herself millions of fans worldwide through her appearance on last year’s X Factor, with her enthusiasm and dedication leading to both of her acts, eventual winner James Arthur and runner-up Jahmene Douglas, making up the final two of the competition.

However, Nicole is aware that being on the show takes up a huge amount of time – the judges also spend time with their acts learning where they have come from and their stories so far as well as mentoring them for the live shows.

And as October also marks being the biggest month of the year for record sales, Nicole will have to decide where her priorities lie – as she is hoping to achieve the same success from her hit single Boomerang with the release of her as-yet-untitled album.   But Nicole will have to make a decision in the near future as the live auditions for the X Factor kick off imminently.

The source added: ‘The future’s uncertain – and Nicole is concerned that it’s huge commitment to take both on.

‘She’s torn between the two and has to choose between one or the other – she loves both and she’s in an impossible situation.’   In addition, if Nicole decides not to sign up for another series of The X Factor, the likelihood is that she won’t continue to live in London – as she will no longer need a base in the capital.   Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh are rumoured to be rejoining the show, but fellow judge Tulisa has reportedly been axed with former panellist Sharon Osbourne favourite to replace her.
