Kelly Rowland has vowed to "continue to disagree" with Tulisa Contostavlos.
The 'X Factor' judges - who were said to be "at war" after Tulisa branded Kelly's act Misha B a "bully" live on air - have since put aside their differences, but the former Destiny's Child singer doesn't know if she can ever go back to being "close friends" with her co-panellist.
She told BANG Showbiz: "Tulisa and I disagreed and we will no doubt to continue to disagree. Yes, we had our differences but we've put them aside for now.
"There was definitely a stage where we were pretty close friends and now the live shows have started, the competition between the judges has really intensified.
"Everybody is just trying to do their job. I obviously still disagree with her timing and what she said but we have to agree to disagree. It was wrong, but we're not upset with each other and it's just something that happened. We just need to focus on our own contestants."
After being struck down with a mystery throat infection during last weekend's show, Kelly spent her time off studying the contestants from their first auditions to now, and admits some of the hopefuls are now "coasting" in the competition.
Speaking at last night's (03.11.11) Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards 2011 at London's Banqueting House - where she picked up the gong for Ultimate TV Personality - Kelly added: "While I was away I got a chance to look at all of the acts, not just my acts, from auditions, to boot camp, to judges' houses to now.
"Some of them have definitely been coasting for a bit and have become a bit complacent. I want Frankie to focus on a voice lesson or two. He's the 'everything but' guy, he's got the entire package except the voice and I just wish it was better than it actually is."
