R. Kelly spread his wings and soared on the two-part finale of “The X Factor.” The music maestro joined finalist Melanie Amaro for the first duet of his classic “I Believe I Can Fly,” praising the 19-year-old singer following their performance. “It was unbelievable. There’s no doubt in my mind that this girl is on her way to the moon,” said Kellz.
