Judge Kelly warns contestants that they risk 'losing everything' if they lose focus

Super strict X Factor Judge Kelly Rowland has warned her finalists that they could ‘lose everything’ if they don’t follow her rules.

The 30-year-old, who is in Miami shooting the judges’ houses section of the show, believes that focus and discipline are the keys to success.

‘There will be no alcohol, no smoking and no talking loud in clubs,’ says Kelly.

‘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 don’t smoke, I want to succeed.’

Kelly, who is mentoring the girls on this year’s show, has asked her own personal voice coach Rob Stevens to help them with technique

But she is not looking forward to having to eliminate contestants.

‘This is a hard list I’m going to have to narrow down,’ she tells the Mirror.

‘I’m really worried about telling them. I’ve had “nos” in my career since the age of 13.

Signed, dropped, signed, dropped, signed.

‘I know what if feels like.’
