TEN minutes at Amelia Lily’s home & Kelly doesn’t want her to win

X Factor judge Kelly Rowland made no secret of the fact that Mischa B was her favourite act.

And now, the former Destiny’s Child singer has been accused of not wanting her remaining crooner to win in this weekend’s final.

She is apparently scared she will be left embarrassed if the 17-year-old takes the title, considering she voted the teenager out back in October on the first live show.

Amelia came back in the competition after wannabe rocker Frankie Coccoza left amid a drug scandal.

Somewhere to be? Kelly apparently only spent 10 minutes with Amelia and her family at her family home in Middlesborough on WednesdayKelly accompanied Amelia during her home visit to Middlesborough on Wednesday but only spent 10 minutes at her family’s house, reported the Mirror.

She apparently refused to eat or drink anything and returned to her hotel suite alone.

A family friend told the paper that Amelia was worried Kelly wished she had not been brought back to the show.

‘Kelly couldn’t hide the fact she didn’t want to be in Middlesbrough and seemed to spend most of her time in a hotel,’ he said.

‘Amelia was out all day trying to drum up support while Kelly was nowhere to be seen. The feeling is she’s not too fussed about what happens and doesn’t really want Amelia to win.’

A show source said: ‘Kelly seems to feel embarrassed about the situation. She dumped Amelia, so what would it say about her expert opinion if that girl goes on to win the whole competition? It would probably be easier for her if she doesn’t win.’

Kelly flew to Germany on Tuesday to promote her album and appeared on the German version of the show.

Kelly performed on X Factor last weekend

Her spokeswoman said: “She is working outside of the show, but that is because she has got an album to promote. She is the only judge who has that.’

‘But she is completely committed to Amelia, is working hard with her, and wants her to win.’

After a photocall for the final last night, Kelly and Amelia sat together at a party at The Box.

But an onlooker said: ‘They barely spoke and were both sat texting. There was clearly no love lost between them.’

The London nightspot that has been described by its owner as a place of ‘mystique, mystery and sexual openness’.

So it’s shocking the teenager attending, also considering she is too young to gain entry on a normal night there.


The Box has a reputation for being full of sexual and chemical excess with many rumours of customers having sex and snorting cocaine off their tables.

With regular celebrity clientele including Gwyneth Patrol, Courtney Love and Christina Aguilera it is easy to see why it has become so popular.

Even royals Prince Harry and his cousins Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie have partied there.

The club once featured an act which performed a sex act on himself with the neck of a vodka bottle.

Meanwhile, Amelia does appear to have some support.

Middlesborough football boss Tony Mowbray has thrown his weight behind the finalist.

He said: ‘I’m a big X Factor fan. Everyone in the Mowbray household watches the show and we will be cheering on Amelia this Saturday, as will everyone at the club.
