The latest season of the X-Factor UK kicked off in spectacular form tonight. Unsurprisingly, with this being the audition phase, the talented and talent-challenged came out in equal measure for a crack at progressing to the next stage. Judging the hopefuls are new additions Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh, and returning judge Sharon Osbourne.
With September around the corner, so too is the season three premiere of The X Factor USA.
Eagerly anticipated , the show welcomes Kelly Rowland and Latin star Paula Rubio to the judges panel. The duo replace departing stars Britney Spears and LA Reid, completing the panel with Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato.
So as to whip up a buzz ahead of its return, the show has unwrapped a new promo featuring its latest cast. What are you waiting for? Check it out below!
Another year, another judging line-up for Simon Cowell’s X Faxtor UK.
On this occasion, though, we’re all for the latest batch of bottoms who’ll sit at the famed judges table.
Pop diva Nicole Scherzinger leads this year’s panel, which features a returning Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh. TV maven Sharon Osbourne makes a sensational comeback to the show leaving in 2007. The Osbourne matriarch replaces an axed Tulisa, who is having a few issues of her own at the moment. Sniff sniff.
The quad begun shooting the audition phase of the show, which is in its tenth season, today. Look out for The X Factor UK when it returns to screens later this Summer.
Randomness: After a wildly successful run on the show last year, we hope Nicole manages to leverage the exposure against her musical endeavours. The way each year seems to be a case of musical chairs, it’s best that she “get’s it while it hot”.
‘X Factor UK’ fans rejoice!
For, after parting ways with the show in 2007 and upping her celebrity stock via ‘The Talk’ since then, Sharon Osbourne is to return to the British talent competition for its 10th season…joining existing judges Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and the show’s brightest star Nicole Scherzinger.
Exciting news below…
X marks the spot!
Kelly Rowland and her fellow X Factor USA comrades took front stage center today at the first taping of the FOX show’s new season in Charleston, SC.
Looking like a bag of money and good living, the ‘Dirty Laundry’ singer momentarily stepped in as Head Judge in the absence of Simon Cowell – who was running late due to travel complications. Upon his arrival, she took her seat — next to him.
Auditions are taking place as we type, yet fans in attendance have taken to social media to relay how well the new panel -which is completed by Demi Lovato and Latin superstar Paulina Rubio - works together.
