Geri Halliwell Won't be Replacing Kelly Rowland On 'The X Factor' Judging Panel

It looks like Geri Halliwell's X Factor dream is over before it's even begun. The former Ginger Spice has reportedly blown her chance of replacing Kelly Rowland on the show's judging panel after failing to click with the other judges.

Geri made an appearance as a guest judge at the Liverpool auditions last week but despite her best efforts didn't fit in with Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa.

A source told The Sun: "Geri had a lot of energy and tried her hardest to make an impression. But you need chemistry with the other judges in spades if you are going to join the panel full-time."

Even Geri's mate, Gary Barlow, wasn't keen on her taking a seat on the panel. He told The Mirror: "I don't think the audience liked her. She got booed. I like Geri, I've known her for years. She's got a good energy but I just don't know.

"I don't know whether I would want her as a judge to be honest. I'd have to have a few more days... I remember us guys last year - it took us a few weeks to get into the role of being a voice. I know she's done it in the past and I liked her on Popstars."

Blimey, who needs enemies when you've got mates like that, eh?

Show bosses still haven't found a permanent replacement for Kelly after former judge Dannii Minogue turned down their offer to return to the show. Rita Ora and Leona Lewis will also be appearing as guest judges.
