As auditions for the tenth series of X Factor kicked off today, host Dermot O’Leary shared the first photo of the brand new panel – returning judge Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh, Nicole Sherzinger and Gary Barlow – all together. Exciting!
By tweeting the photo with the caption: “And so it begins…”, Dermot put an end to months of speculation about who would be replacing Tulisa on the new line-up, and it looks like feisty Sharon fought off the competition. Welcome back, Mrs O!
The auditions kicked off in style in Glasgow earlier today, with Sharon making her grand return to the judge’s chair in typically outrageous Osbourne style – flanked by two muscle-bound, kilt-clad hunks. Well, why not?!
New line-up aside, the new series is also promising to bring more exciting changes, with the old ‘judge’s room’ auditions from the first five series of the show being resurrected.
We can’t wait for the new series to hit our screens later this summer. But what do you think of the new panel? Let us know below…
