Kelly Rowland: X Factor 2011 groups category needs work

Kelly Rowland 2011

X Factor judge Kelly Rowland has revealed that the judges are having to work on The X Factor 2011 groups category this year, with the show once again struggling to produce stand out acts. Speaking on the red carpet at yesterday's X Factor launch, Kelly however said the other categories were all on top form.

"The overs are phenomenal! The females category are phenomenal! The guys... phenomenal!" a somewhat hyperactive Kelly revealed ahead of the first screening.

"The groups... we're still shaping it up..." she continued, quickly adding: "But it's looking phenomenal!"


A group has never won the show; however JLS, Jedward and One Direction have all gone on to have huge success - arguably overshadowing the actual winners.

Speaking about the bootcamp stages, Louis Walsh blabbed: "The talent is incredible, it's through the roof!

He continued: "I will mentor any category I'm giving... I see a lot of talent... girls are very wrong, the boys too."

Meanwhile Tulisa was being coy with revealing what acts she was after in her category. "Bootcamp is the best time for me because I get to do what I do best which is to connect with the contestants and help them.

"There are two categories that I want, but I still haven't set my mind on which... but it's not up to me anyway! But that's why I don't want to get my hopes up."

The X Factor 2011 bootcamp continues today at Wembley.
