Kelly Wants XF Girls To Be Better Than GaGa & Beyoncé
The judge has said she's on the look out for the "next international star"...
Speaking to The Mirror, the Commander singer revealed: "All I've looked for is a global star... I heard Tulisa Contostavlos say, 'We're looking for that next big UK star', and I said, 'Well I'm looking for the next international star, you can't just put someone in a box, you give them everything they deserve'."
She continued: "That's what they're here for, they're here for international success. I want them to be better than me, better than [Lady] GaGa and better than Beyoncé. Each generation is meant to be better."
The 30-year old then added to the tabloid that when it comes to her finalists, she has "no time" for backstage dramas, stating: "I don't think we're gonna have that problem. I'm going to let [the girls] know I'm not dealing with that."
This weekend viewers will see Misha Bryan, Janet Devlin, Sophie Habibis, Amelia Lily, Melanie McCabe, Sian Phillips, Holly Repton and Jade Richards battle it out for four places in The X Factor live shows.
