We might only be half way through the live shows of this year’s X Factor but already the rumour mill has started churning as to who might be on the judging panel next year. With Louis and Gary having already confirmed that they won’t be coming back (is it possible to have X Factor without Louis Walsh? Seriously?!) there are two spaces already up for grabs.
Now, if reports are to be believed Simon Cowell could be planning an all female line up for 2014. According to the Sun, Si is keen to hire both Rita Ora and Cheryl Cole, which with Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger would make a pretty powerful all female line up. This comes shortly after it was confirmed that ITV would be airing the show (along with Britain’s Got Talent) for another three years. But what could we expect from four women on the panel?
Wardrobe wars for starters. Already this year Nicole has pulled out some pretty amazing outfits and Cheryl was famous for wowing every single week and Rita might bring a bit of street style to the equation. Bring on the designer frocks ladies.
Of course we’d also be hoping for a cat fight or two, especially given that Cheryl once slagged Nicole claiming that when the pair met Nicole sang her song Promise to her an experience that she described as ‘weird’ and ‘so awkward.’ And whilst Sharon seems to be getting on pretty well with Nicole the other ladies might want to watch their backs given the take down she gave to her former colleague Dannii Minogue who said she was, ‘unbearable.’
We seriously HOPE that this all female panel thing is true! What's your verdict?
