With just hours to go to this year’s series premier of the X Factor, all eyes are set on the judging panel. Will Gary return? Will Louis Walsh still be required to shout over an over excited audience – after every performance?
Well The Gay UK has learnt that a few new faces will be joining the judging panel, including, Anastacia, Spice Girl Mel B, RIP singer Rita Ora, Leona Lewis, Geri Halliwell, Nicole Scherizinger as well as Gary Barlow, Tulisa and of course Louis Walsh.
Now in it’s ninth year, the X Factor machine rolled in to six major cities on the hunt for someone with the X Factor – Cardiff, Glasgow, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Newcastle.
The most popular audition song was ‘We Found Love’ by Rihanna, closely followed by ‘At Last’ by Etta James.
Nearly 500 acts were seen by the judges – and the oldest contestant this year is 77.
