The 'Down For Whatever' star is said to have impressed Simon Cowell on UK show.

Kelly Rowland may switch to become a judge on The X Factor USA next year, according to reports.

The former Destiny's Child star is said to have impressed Simon Cowell as a judge on the UK version and the music mogul now wants her to join him in America.

"Simon has been blown away by Kelly," a source told the Daily Star.

"He’s made no secret of the fact he thinks she's the star of the UK show. Simon's been less impressed with how Nicole is faring in the US."

Kelly joined the UK programme this year alongside Louis Walsh and fellow new judges Tulisa Contostavlos and Gary Barlow.

Meanwhile, the 'Down For Whatever' star released her new album 'Here I Am' this month.
