Kelly announced on the BBC Radio 1’s breakfast show that she will be performing at the Radio 1 Xtra Live event in London next month.
‘I loved performing at the first ever 1Xtra Live four years ago and I’m really happy to be headlining the final date of this incredible event,’ she told host, Chris Moyles.
‘There’s so much amazing talent on the line-up and I’m proud to be part of it.’
The U.S. star also spoke honestly about two of her acts being in the bottom two on last Sunday’s show saying that she feels ‘partly responsible’ for the outcome.
Kelly Rowland has been named as one of Cosmopolitan’s Women of the Year.
The X Factor judge, who is back in the UK after having to extend her trip to the US because of illness, was named Ultimate TV Personality, while Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery was presented with the Ultimate Newcomer award at the event hosted by Fearne Cotton.
The Ultimate Icon award went to Blondie singer Debbie Harry and was presented by Kylie Minogue.
They joined guests including Tulisa Contostavlos, Amanda Holden, Karren Brady, Olly Murs and Alexandra Burke.
“Here I Am” is finally getting an international release date! Kelly’s latest album featuring such hits as “Motivation” and “Commander” is going to hit international shelves around November 25th. The album was previously officially available only for US market and fans from Europe (like myself) had to struggle to get their own copy. So remember to check your local store when you can expect “Here I Am” shipment.
It is rumoured the international album will have a slightly different cover (attached above) however in some countries you may get it also with regular picture.
We don’t know yet how the international version will be different from US edition. In a recent interview with TheGrapeJuice Kelly shared that she’s hoping to add more bonus tracks to the new release.
“I’m actually starting the recording process for the international record – which will be out in November. So yeah, that is true. And I’m going in with different producers too. There will be more bonus tracks on the international record; which is exactly what I wanted, because there’s some songs that didn’t go on to the US version of the album that will go on to the international version. There will, as said, also be newly recorded tracks included too!”
