Interview With Kelly Rowland on The X Factor USA

Submitted by on – No Comment


Tonight is #XFactorUSA result show with #onedirection. Here is my #interview with #kellyrowland. A snippet.

D. McNaughton​: Thank you very much. The first question I have for you is why do you think Simon Cowell picked you and what was that conversation like when you were told you were going to be a judge?

K. Rowland​: I am very smart, and I have been in the music industry for a very long time and I have a lot of knowledge to give, and that I want to give to these contestants. I love finding new talent, to be completely honest, and my opportunity that I got to do X Factor U.K. was just incredible. I will never forget it. It was one of the best moments I’ve had, actually, in my career, because I’m working with a specific group and there I had the girls and I’m a part of their building process and that makes me happy. I feel like I’m actually giving back. Simon picked me because I’m smart and I am definitely up for the job.

D. McNaughton​: Because of your career background, you have had your ups and downs, how do you think that has affected your style as a judge?

K. Rowland​: I’m able to see certain things, to be honest. I don’t know if I can necessarily put it into words, but all of my experiences actually have prepared me for this moment. And if anything where I feel like I may see a piece of myself or a bad habit or something in a contestant, I’ll be able to actually notice it and hopefully help them to move from there, to grow from there. That’s why I’m here. That’s why they call us mentors.
