London: Singer Kelly Rowland is all set to join talent show ‘The X Factor’ as a new judge.

It was earlier revealed that Simon Cowell wanted the former ‘Destiny’s Child’ singer to replace Dannii Minogue on the show.

"The X Factor is an amazing show. I love Simon because he’s so honest. Everything he says I agree with,” the Sun quoted her as saying.

Rowland is set to sign her deal within the next few days. The 30-year-old singer was lined up for the job after Minogue quit over a clash with her commitments on ‘Australia’s Got Talent’.
