Kelly Rowland has spoken out in defence of Jay-Z’s Grammy speech.

“Some of you are going to go home tonight and feel like you’ve been robbed. Some of you may get robbed. Some of you don’t belong in the category,” he said on stage at the awards show. “You got to keep showing up until they give you all those accolades you feel you deserve. Until they call you chairman, until they call you a genuis, until they call you the greatest of all time. You feel me?”

Some accused Jay-Z of being shady and petty but Kelly says it is not the case.

 “I think that he made a lot of artists feel very seen and very heard in those minutes that he took on stage whether you carried some of that for years or a year or felt some sort of way about it,” she told ET. “It’s no disrespect, as he said, it’s just more so thinking of new ways whether its vote or come together for new artists. What are the rules? How do they apply?”

Beyonce still walked away with several awards last week but “Renaissance” lost the album of the year award to Harry Styles’ “Harry’s House.”
