She's desperate to show the public that she deserves to be on that panel.
But it's all got a bit awkward for X Factor judge Mel B, who's come under fire FROM HER OWN FAMILY after she claimed she hails from the same Leeds council estate as contestant Kayleigh Manners.
The 'B' family on the other hand aren't so sure on this one. Can anyone say AWKWARD?
Kayleigh, 23, featured on Saturday's arena auditions and impressed the judges with her rendition of Sam Smith's 'Stay With Me', explaining how she drew inspiration from Mel thanks to them both hailing from the same area in Leeds - 'Harehills.'
In a totes emosh video, Kayleigh admitted: "The place where I come from gets quite a bad name. But Mel B was brought up in the same area so it makes you realise people from that place can still make it and get somewhere."
Thing is, Mel B's fam are actually quite confused by the whole thing, claiming that Mel in fact grew up in a totally different part of the city.
Confused? You will be.
