Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos fight over X Factor boy group Brooklyn

X Factor 2011 judges

New X Factor judges Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos found themselves arguing with one another at the judges' desk earlier this week. The pair had a bit of a bicker with one another over boy group Brooklyn after they auditioned for the show in Wales on Wednesday.

The group had performed Cee Lo Green's Forget You for the panel, but the new X Factor 2011 judges - Kelly, Tulisa, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh - couldn't quite agree on whether to put them through.

Kelly told the group: "I'm sorry, but Gary Barlow and the guys from Take That have completely spoiled me when it comes to sound. You've got a lot to work on."


Tulisa however completely disagreed, telling them: "I really, really enjoyed that audition. Yes it was pitchy but that can't not be worked on."

Not backing down, Kelly turned to Tulisa to moan: "Not with the time we have!

"I'm not saying it can't be done but it’s an awful lot of work in such a small time."

The pair continued to argue over the boys' vocals, with even Gary and Louis taking sides.

"It wasn't brilliant. I'm not that excited enough to say 'I want to mentor these guys'," Louis told them, backing Kelly.

Gary meanwhile supported Tulisa, saying: "I thought it was a really good audition."

With the judges split and the audience booing Kelly, will Brooklyn make it to bootcamp?

The X Factor 2011 airs on ITV1 from this August.
