Kelly Rowland and her personal trainer Mr Shut Up and Train get the contestants to hone their A-game on The Rap Game tonight — by teaching them about stamina.
The young rappers are stunned when they turn up to a gym and find the R&B legend and her trainer standing there with host Jermaine Dupri.
They all shuffle in timidly with Jermain joking: “You’re all walking slow like you’re all nervous or something!”
Recalling the moment he first saw her, contestant Nova says: “Standing there is KELLY ROWLAND! I was like, oh it’s KELLY! But I didn’t show it because I didn’t want to be like ‘aaaaaargh!'”
TFW you walk in the room and Kelly Rowland is standing there…

The kids are then put through their paces at the gym, rapping as they go to build up their stamina.
The exercise prepares them for a super-tough Catch the Beat challenge set by Jermaine — where they have to keep rapping to a constantly changing beat without stopping.
But not everyone finds it easy…
Whatever you do, stay on beat.
