Whilst "sister" Beyoncé Knowles headlined across the pond at Glastonbury Festival, all eyes were on R&B's current HBIC Kelly Rowland as she worked the BET Awards 2011 red carpet at the Shrine Auditorium. With current single "Motivation" notching a fifth consecutive week atop the R&B charts, despite only just being shipped out to Urban Adult Contemporary radio and only going to Pop radio early next month it has already become the eleventh most played song overall at all American radio outlets. After the general lackluster performance of her solo material stateside, Kelly Rowland has rebounded and become one of the most talked-about stars of 2011. Her third studio album, "Here I Am", out next month, has become one of the year's most highly anticipated releases and her every move generates discussion and speculation.
Prior to receiving a full standing ovation for her first televised performance of "Motivation", Kelly worked the red carpet outside. Girlfriend is looking fabulous as always - pink really is her color. I'll be posting the performance as soon as it makes it's way online so stay tuned!
