New X Factor judge Kelly Rowland is making sure to get close and personal to her final four acts, describing her finalists like her children. Saying she didn't have any favourites between the girls - who will be revealed on Sunday night - Kelly warned her fellow judges she was ready to protect her bunch of singers!
We'll see this weekend as Kelly takes the top 8 girls in category out to Miami to whittle them down to just four.
Speaking about her choices, Kelly teased: “I don’t think it’s right to have favourites just yet, because now they’re like all my children.
"You gotta make them better. You want them to grow, get better, make right decisions and choices when it comes to this competition, songs they’re going sing… all of that.”
Speaking to ITV.Com and asked about the competition from the other judges, Kelly said: “All the categories are really dangerous when you think about it.
"There is such great talent everywhere this year. Each category is really rocking, so we’ve got to step up our games as judges and really make these contestants even more amazing."
She added: "My fellow judges better be ready to box!”
We can't wait!
