Kelly Rowland has put a sex and alcohol ban on her eight 'X Factor' finalists and warned them not to lose focus by getting involved in relationships while they are in the competition

Kelly Rowland has put a sex and alcohol ban on her eight 'X Factor' finalists.

The Destiny's Child singer - who has enlisted Jennifer Hudson to help her whittle the wannabes down to four for the live shows - has warned the girls in her category they will have no time for partying or relationships if they want to succeed in the show.

She said:" There will be absolutely no alcohol, no smoking, no talking loud in clubs. I want them to take care of their bodies.

"I will be like, 'Don't let anything knock you off your focus or you will lose everything.'

"I didn't go out until I was at least 22 and I didn't party until two years ago. I've always been strict. I don't drink a lot, I want to succeed."

Kelly also revealed she isn't worried about one of her acts eclipsing her and says she wants them to be bigger than her former Destiny's Child bandmate Beyonce Knowles or Lady Gaga.

She said: "I want them to be better. Better than me, better than Lady Gaga, better than Beyonce. Better than this generation. Each generation is meant to be better. I remember talking to Whitney Houston and she was saying, 'It's just getting better and it should continue to get better.' I heard Janet Jackson say that too.

"I am the same, I always want to get better and I want my girls to be better."
