The 'Mr. Know It All' star has revealed that she would like to work with former X Factor stars.

Kelly Clarkson has admitted that she finds One Direction "cute" and wants to work with them.

The 'Mr. Know It All' singer said she was a big fan of the 'Gotta Be You' boys, who performed on The X Factor last night (13th November).

 “I would definitely work with them, they’re so talented and cute," she told the Daily Star. “I have to invite them to one of my shows for some drinks.”

Kelly, who played a surprise gig in London last week, released her latest album 'Stronger' in October.

Meanwhile, One Direction performed their new single 'Gotta Be You' on The X Factor on Sunday, making their first appearance on the show since they last featured as contestants.

The band are preparing to release their debut album 'Up All Night' later this month.

One Direction have also revealed that they are big admirers of Lady Gaga, describing the 'Marry The Night' star as an inspiration.
