Kelly Rowland took Amelia Lily for a night out ahead of her appearance on The X Factor final this weekend.

The 'Down For Whatever' star was all smiles as the pair posed for pictures outside London venue, The Box.

Wearing a grey cut-off sweatshirt and black jeans, Kelly looked excited ahead of the final, which will see Amelia Lily battle it out against Marcus Collins and Little Mix.

Kelly said she was "really proud" of Amelia, who returned to the show following the exit of Frankie Cocozza.

"I'm really proud of her and she sounds phenomenal," she said.

"I think the public wanted to prove me wrong. But it had nothing to do with anyone else. She just came back and nailed it. It was all to do with her. 

"Her perseverance, wanting to be here and taking it up a notch. She ups the game for everyone in the competition. She came back in the show with tools that put her ahead of other people in the show."

The X Factor final takes place on ITV 1 across the weekend, with The Xtra Factor with Olly Murs and Caroline Flack appearing on ITV 2.
