Louis Walsh has let it slip that both Katy Perry and Nicole Scherzinger are up for Kelly Rowland’s seat on X factor UK! The Irish judge gabbed that there are five celebrities being considered for former Destiny Child star Kelly's coveted job.

Chatting with the Irish Herald, he said, "I’ve worked with Nicole and Katy before and I would love to work with them again, they were fantastic." Current X Factor Australia judge and former Spice Girl Melanie Brown, along with Anastasia and ex-judge Sharon Osbourne are also being considered.

Of the other three ladies, Louis said, "Mel B knows the format so well... Anastasia has sold millions of records and is a big star and I would give anything to work with Sharon again."

Who would you like to see replace Kelly? We're pretty surprised Nicole is being considered again after her short-lived judging career on US X Factor!
