The X Factor Simon Cowell Sharon Osbourne Nicole Scherzinger Louis Walsh

The most memorable contestant on Sunday night’s ‘X Factor’ auditions was undoubtably Sada Vidoo, a ‘living doll’ who gained four yeses from the judges for her rendition of ‘Love Is A Battlefield’. But while Sada may have been new to British TV viewers, it’s now be claimed that she is actually an established platinum-selling act from Denmark.

Revamped 'X Factor' Scores Lowest Ratings In 10 Years, But ITV Have No Plans To Axe It


Simon Cowell The X Factor Sharon Osbourne Nicole Scherzinger Louis Walsh Dermot O'Leary

The ‘x factor’s’ return on Saturday night gave the ITV talent show its lowest ratings for a series opener in 10 years, despite the revamped judging panel. On Saturday night Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh all returned to the show as judges, alongside Simon Cowell, while Dermot O’Leary was back as host.

But the much hyped return of the fan-favourite judges didn't give the show the ratings boost it had hoped for. On Saturday night 6.8 million viewers tuned in, which was 800,000 down from last year's launch episode and the lowest numbers for a series opener since 2005.

Simon Cowell And Sharon Osbourne Miss 'The X Factor' Launch Event


The X Factor Simon Cowell Sharon Osbourne Dermot O'Leary Louis Walsh Nicole Scherzinger

The new series of ‘The X Factor’ seems to have gotten off to an inauspicious start, after judges Simon Cowell and Sharon Osbourne failed to show up for the 13th series’ launch event this week.

56 year old Simon and 63 year old Sharon were both no-shows at the central London hotel on Thursday night (August 25th), as the other two judges Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh were left to do press commitments.

Cowell is currently busy with the final stages of ‘America’s Got Talent’ and was obviously unavailable, but Osbourne’s excuse was ‘filming commitments’ – whatever that means.

Louis Walsh Says One Direction Won't Get Back Together For Ten Years


One Direction Louis Walsh The X Factor

Prepare yourselves for some bad news, Directioners…

Louis Walsh has claimed in a brand new interview that not only are One Direction not about to reunite any time soon, but also that it could be at least 10 years before they’ll consider doing so.

The 64 year old Irish pop mogul, who was a judge on ‘The X Factor’ when 1D were discovered back in 2010 and who is returning to the ITV singing contest this year, gave an interview to The Telegraph on Thursday (August 25th) and said that it was extremely unlikely that the band would get back together after their hiatus, as they had promised fans.

Mel B Replacing Nicole Scherzinger On 'The X Factor' Auditions


Mel B Nicole Scherzinger The X Factor Simon Cowell

Mel B is to temporarily replace Nicole Scherzinger as a judge on ‘The X Factor’ after “other commitments” forced the former Pussycat Doll to cancel appearances at the show’s auditions this summer.

Scherzinger has cited a “diary clash” that had been set up before she agreed to return to the panel of ‘The X Factor’ last month, and therefore she won’t be present at the London auditions on Friday (June 17th). Instead, the former Spice Girl – also previously a judge on the 2014 series of the reality show – will be taking her place for the day.
