Beyoncé reduced her former Destiny's Child band mate, Kelly Rowland, to tears during a live TV show by describing her as an "incredible" talent.

During an appearance on Access Hollywood Live, Beyoncé praised Rowland's new album Here I Am in a video message.

She said: "My Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, I love you so much. I'm so proud of you, your album is incredible.

"I'm so happy I just got to see you in Paris, I mean London! And I'm very proud of you and all of your success, you're such a beautiful woman and I can't wait to see you again."

Rowland went on to speak of the "bond" she shared with Beyoncé and their Destiny's Child colleague Michelle Williams.

She said: "It's so great - our bond that we have.”

Speaking about why the girls had not yet a musical comeback, she added: "We haven't talked about it, to be honest. Even when we come together it's not something that we bring up in conversation.

“We talk about everything else but a reunion."
