X-Factor judges in US & UK confirmed..!

As we reported a few days ago pop singer Kelly Rowland and Mexican singer-actress Paulina Rubio have signed up to be on the judging panel of the X-Factor USA replacing Britney Spears and music mogul L.A. Reid, joining returning judge Demi Lavato and old time judge Simon Cowell...
This will be the first time in X-Factor history that the panel consists of three female judges and just male judge. Funny, wonder who is the producer, would it be Simon himself? 
Wow there is a surprise! 

In an official statement Cowell has said “It’s taken more than a decade but I’m delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!). Paulina and Kelly both have great taste and massive experience in the music industry and together with Demi, this is going to be a fun panel. It just feels like the time to do something different,”

Then over the atlantic, Louis Walsh has basically confirmed the following judges for the UK version of the show..
 Entering into his tenth year as X-Factor UK judge Louis Walsh has mainly confirm that along with him will be Take That star Gary Barlow and the long awaited return of Sharon Osbourne.

In an interview with RTE Louis said “I’m back, I am definitely back. Me and Gary, we’re the bookends and I’m sure Sharon Osbourne’s back and I helped to get her back, because she’s great fun.”

So if this is true, then it only leaves one more space on the panel with Louis continuing saying: “I hope it’s going to be Tulisa or Nicole.” – well our bets are on Nicole after winning with James Arthur last year.

Sharon left in 2008 after a rift became apparent between her an co-judge Dannii Minogue and was soon replaced by Cheryl Cole. So it will an interesting play by the show to reunite the loud mouth lady  with Louis saying “She’s a law onto herself. She’s a bit of a loose cannon but I like that.”

Well, lets hope both seasons are going to find some real talent this year and that the drama continues..!
