We 100 percent agree with Tulisa Contostavlos’ choice of new X Factor judge – we’d LOVE to see Lily Allen on the panel.
Now that it’s looking increasingly unlikely that Kelly Rowland will return to The X Factor, there’s all sorts of speculation about who will actually join Tulisa, Louis Walsh and Gary Barlow (who reportedly signed a impressive £2million deal to sit at the judge’s table for a second year), when filming for the show’s gets underway on 15 May. Tulisa wants Lily Allen as the other girl on the panel – an inspired choice we think.
Lily is outspoken, funny and knows the music business. As she’s currently ‘retired’ from life as a pop star and enjoying being as new mum, a job on The X Factor could be perfect. Pleeeeeease Simon Cowell, MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
If Lily doesn’t join the show, there’s a chance that Dannii Minogue could return – speculation is rife that Simon Cowell is planning to bring back the very popular former judge.
“Simon thinks she’s great. They are still friends. If it works out, then it will be fantastic for The X Factor. No formal offer has yet gone out but this is likely to happen in the next few days,” a source told The Sunday Mirror yesterday.
“Dannii is the top of ITV’s wish-list for new judges on the show and they are keen to begin official talks. She is extremely popular among X Factor fans and would still be a big draw.”
Meanwhile, Louis Walsh has his own ideas about who is likely to appear on the panel – saying there are five big names in the frame,
“These are the five people that they’re looking in terms of a replacement for Kelly. I’ve worked with Nicole Scherzinger and Katy Perry before and I would love to work with them again, they were fantastic. Mel B has done the X Factor Australia and could easily do it in Britain as she knows the format so well.
“Anastasia has sold millions of records and is a big star and I would give anything to work with Sharon again.”
Now it has been confirmed that Kelly has left The X Factor, who would YOU like to see as a judge?
