X Factor USA judges have gone wild!
Kelly Rowland planted a big kiss on controversial co-judge, Simon Cowell’s lips on Wednesday night after the notoriously strict judge gave a rare rave review of “fantastic” to a singer on her team. The ex-Destiny’s Child singer was reported to have been so overwhelmed to hear the praise that she kissed him on the mouth.
54-year old contestant, Lillie McCloud was the reason behind the judges’ PG-13 reaction on live television.
On last week's edition of the show, Simon apparently didn't buy the grandma of 8’s ‘When A Man Loves A Woman” rendition and called it ‘dated’, rattling her confidence in the process. But after last night’s “All In Love Is Fair” by Stevie Wonder rendition, Simon had these words to say while Kelly stood over him pointing her fingers in warning against giving negative criticism;
'Lillie, I did say you were dated. I thought the delivery was a little bit cabaret. 'I have to be honest Lillie,' he said, as Kelly pushed his microphone away, expecting more criticism.
'I thought that was absolutely fantastic. It's just so easy to take for granted how good someone like you is. But I still think there's more to come,' he added.
..and that's what landed Simon a kiss on the lip from Kelly.
From the other judges came;
'Your voice is incredible,' said Demi Levato as she tried to make herself heard above the screams of the audience.
'You're a goddess,' Paulina Rubio said simply.
'This woman is incredible, Lillie is a hot grandma,' Kelly Rowland said.
Meanwhile, earlier Kelly pointed out how 'dated' Simon was by wearing the same clothes each week.
So, what do you think? Should we expect more kisses from the judges this year?
