HomeTV TalkX Factor: Kelly Rowland Pulls Out of This Week’s Show

Kelly Rowland will not take part in this week’s X Factor due to a throat infection — the girls mentor will stay in Los Angeles.

A spokesman for Kelly said: “Kelly is devastated she won’t be here for this weekend’s show. She is extremely ill with a viral throat infection and her doctors aren’t permitting her to fly.

“Kelly will be returning to the show as soon as she has recovered. The girls have been in touch to wish her a speedy recovery and they can’t wait for her to get back. More news as we have it.”

Nicole Scherzinger is likely to replace Kelly this weekend. The Former Pussycat Doll and X Factor USA Judge is in the UK to perform on Sunday’s results show.
