Kelly Rowland - full name Kelendria Trene Rowland - is an American singer and performer. A founding member of Destiny's Child, she stuck with the band as it went through numerous line-ups before hitting on its winning formula of Kelly, Beyoncé Knowles and Michelle Williams and took over the charts with hits such as Bills, Bills, Bills, Survivor and Bootylicious. The girls quietly disbanded in 2002 to concentrate on solo projects; for Kelly, this meant a near-instantaneous worldwide smash with Dilemma, alongside rapper Nelly. A Destiny's Child reunion album and three hit solo albums followed. Kelly has worked on various TV and film projects, including starring as the female lead in surprise 2003 box office horror hit Freddie V Jason. In May 2011, she was confirmed as a judge on the UK X Factor following the departure of Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue but stayed for only one season. Kelly has since become a judge on the US version of the show alongside Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and Paulina Rubio.
