Joseph Mount of Metronomy has spoken out about his love for R’n’B vocalist R Kelly, calling him "ridiculously brilliant".

He also said that seeing Kelly air drum along to one of his songs, was "the most perfect day of my life".

The frontman was referring to when his band and R Kelly both played Later… with Jools Holland in May of this year and when Kelly – in a black suit and sunglasses - performed a song from his most recent album 'When A Woman Loves' and 'stole the show'.

Mount told the Guardian about Kelly’s 'biggest moment', which was "a choreographed open-armed gesture in time with the music, which ended with him falling to his knees à la James Brown. It was just the most ridiculously brilliant performance I’ve ever seen". He continued:

Later on, we were playing one of our songs, 'The Bay', and at one point all of us noticed R Kelly air drumming along. It felt like the most perfect day of my life.
