New X Factor judge Kelly Rowland serves out disappointment to contestants on a weekly basis, but the former Destiny's Child singer has had her own personal experience with the dark mistress that is rejection. And her story includes Beyoncé!

In this exclusive featurette spotlighting the new girl on the X Factor block, Rowland talks about her first times. No, not that kind of first time. Get your head out of the gutter.

Her first rejection? Losing Star Search alongside her future Destiny's Child member Beyoncé. The first time she felt like she made it? When she met the late, great Whitney Houston.
