Kelly Rowland's favourite 'X Factor' moment of this series was when Amelia Lily performed her comeback song.
The 'Down For Whatever' hitmaker thinks the blonde finalist "shut the building down" with her version of Queen's 'The Show Must Go On' minutes after she won a public vote to re-enter the competition as a replacement for axed contestant Frankie Cocozza, who has chucked off the programme for breaching show rules.
She said: "The top moment of 'X Factor' was probably when Amelia came back to sing 'The Show Must Go On'. She shut the building down."
But Kelly felt her "most emotional" time on the show occurred when she chose to eliminate the blonde beauty from the competition during the first live programme, and also when Misha B was axed last Sunday (04.12.11), leaving Amelia, Little Mix and Marcus Collins as the remaining acts in this weekend's final.
She added: "The most emotional moment of the show was probably when I had to let Amelia go and when I had to let Misha go."
The 30-year-old singer "really admires" fellow judge Gary Barlow and is honoured to have worked with the Take That singer throughout this series of 'X Factor'.
She explained: "Gary is one of the nicest people I've ever met. I really admire him as a man, as a husband, as a musician, as a father, I just think he's an incredible man and I'm just really happy that I got a chance to know his this year."
As well as her work with 'X Factor' Kelly has teamed up with renowned watch company TW Steel and will release some special edition timepieces next year.
