Kelly Rowland: It would be 'awesome' to judge U.S. 'X Factor'

Simon Cowell has said that Beyonce isn't being offered $100 million to join a vacant seat on "The X Factor," but could he consider Beyonce's former groupmate, Kelly Rowland?

After all, the singer has plenty of experience, as she's served as a judge on the "X Factor" in the U.K.

Rowland, who turns 31 Saturday, says "it would be awesome to be a judge over here for 'X Factor.' I really enjoyed my time over in the U.K. being a judge."

She continued, "That was a great opportunity and a great experience, and I would love to do it again."

So what say you, Cowell? And what about you - do think the former Destiny's Child singer would be a good fit with Cowell and L.A. Reid, now that Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger are off the show?

George Carlin's daughter Kelly to host radio show

George Carlin's daughter Kelly Carlin is taking her talents to Sirius XM with a new monthly radio show, the New York Times reports.

Carlin will be the host of "The Kelly Carlin Show,"  in which she'll converse with a variety of comics about their industry as well as their lives.

"I'm always curious about their personal creative process, but also their journey as humans," Carlin tells the Times. "Do they have a spiritual bent to them? What are their politics? Are they optimists or pessimists? What's their worldview in general? That's the stuff that really fascinates me."

'Top Chef: Texas': The comeback kid

The first order of business on this week’s episode of “Top Chef: Texas” was to unveil the winner of “Last Chance Kitchen.” Beverly beat Grayson, meaning (at least) another week of Bev whimpering and Sarah sighing.

For the Quickfire, the chefs had to pick ingredients while blindfolded - something about having to know everything about your ingredients. Which makes sense.

Unless, of course, they’re forced to Mr. Magoo their way around vacuum-packed meats and canned goods, which prevents them from smelling or feeling or otherwise identifying foods.
