Kelly Rowland

Former X Factor judge Kelly Rowland is still supporting her acts from the show last year, it has been revealed.

Amelia Lily has said she is still in contact with Kelly after finishing third on the series last year.

The pair struck up a close friendship on the series, despite Kelly originally ditching Amelia in the first live show.

Kelly and Amelia even recorded a duet together after the final, although Amelia previously revealed it wouldn't be on her debut album, due for release later this year.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper this week, Amelia revealed: "She's a fan of the song. She was annoyed I didn't ring when I was in LA for the video."

Discussing her debut track You Bring Me Joy, Amelia added to the tabloid: "I wanted to show people I'm not just a rock chick.

You Bring Me Joy is out to download from iTunes and Amazon now, and is currently number one in the midweek charts.

The single has shifted over 40,000 copies so far this week, making it the highest new entry at the top of the chart, while X Factor judge Tulisa is currently at number 10 with her new new single Live It Up.
