Kelly reportedly “was taken aback by the circus surrounding it.” She started out strong but then she seemed over it toward the second half of the series. Cowell also noticed her supposed lackluster performance. “Simon felt that Kelly slightly faded towards the latter half of the series,” according to The Daily Mirror.
I think Kelly is stunning and so underrated here in the States. It’s good that she did the judge thang across the pond. Hopefully she has bright things in her future in the States this year! When one door closes, a bigger and better one opens right up!
