UK X-Factor - Judges Confirmed!

With UK X-Factor being under the spot light with all the Cheryl Cole vs Simon Cowell affairs, news has reached us that Cheryl is definitely out and the new judges are confirmed.

Firstly Cheryl…well we think this video sums it all up!
Good for you Cheryl for not following the money! We wonder what you can do now? Perhaps a new Girls Aloud album please!

So the new judges for UK X-Factor are ( as reported for weeks ) Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos.

So who are they, well…

Louie Walsh is a music manager and has run a few pop bands in his time including Boyzone and Westlife and was actually the mentor to steer Girls Aloud to winning Popstars : The Rivals ten year ago!


Gary Barlow needs no introduction (We hope!) One fifth of Take That, he’s a singer-songwriter, pianist and record producer, basically a musical genius, with many awards up his sleeve, including five Ivor Novello. Gary is on the road with Take That’s Progress Tour. Jeez, he’s gonna be busy!


Kelly Rowland, you might know her from a “small” girl group that was officially the biggest-selling female group of all time, Destiny's Child selling over 17.5 million albums in the US alone! Also achieve solo success with 2 platinum albums, a third album on the way and various dance singles under her belt, this singer knows her stuff!


Finally, most probably the most unknown of all the judges, Tulisa Contostavlos is a singer with N-Dubz, a British Hip Hop group from London. At age 22 the singer and band have enjoyed three hit albums and won four MOBO awards. She maybe young but has been in the music industry for the last 10 years!

After failing to win Cheryl back, Dannii Minogue’s sudden shock exit and Nasty Simon Cowell concentrating on the US version of the show, it has left Irishman Louis Walsh, as the only existing X Factor Judge with any experience! However, with the new line up of superstars all set to kick off auditions tomorrow, we reckon its going to be interesting viewing!
(But we will miss Cheryl & Dannii)
