Kelly Rowland: "nice Try..."
The audience had their eye on Kelly Rowland last night on The X Factor, as rumours flew that the singer was under the influence. Viewers were taken back by her seemingly erratic behaviour after using the words "frickin'" and "y’all" more than usual. On The Xtra Factor, the judge declared her love for runner-up Marcus Collins, whilst gripping Gary Barlow’s shoulder and dancing her way to the sofa...
When Dermot O'Leary asked her a question, she responded: "Dude, I have no idea what you just said." A Twitter user said: "Kelly Rowland IS DRUNK! What was that exchange, Dermot? Not very professional. Not very Kelly Rowland we've seen so far." Another Twitter user went on to say: "Anyone else think Kelly Rowland is a little bit wired tonight? Think she may have over indulged in the Green Room."
Kelly attempted to put the rumours to rest by tweeting: "Nice try, but I wasn't under the influence, in ANY way. Just overwhelmed by the crowds cheers." Maybe she was drowning her sorrows following the revelation that due to Tulisa’s win she will now be receiving a pay rise, according to a source who spoke to The Daily Mirror.
The source said that Tulisa will earn "just shy of a million. She's stuck by Louis Walsh and learnt a few tricks of the trade from him. Plus, she sticks to her views. Weaker people might have retracted what she said about Misha B hassling Little Mix to keep things upbeat but she didn't. The producers love her."
