After a lot of media speculation, theories and all that, Scary Spice Mel B has been confirmed as the fourth judge for this year’s X Factor UK, joining the panel alongside Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh.
That won’t be Mel’s first time in X Factor territory as she featured as a guest judge on the show in 2012 and it was received with a lot support from the fans and the media. She was fantastic!!!
Mel B’s experience as a judge in singing talent shows is quite impressive, she has been a judge on America’s Got Talent, The X Factor Australia and The Voice Kids Australia.
The boss Simon Cowell has spoken about the new member of the judging panel, “I AM THRILLED THAT MEL B HAS AGREED TO BE A JUDGE ON THE X FACTOR THIS YEAR. I THOUGHT SHE WAS FANTASTIC AS A GUEST JUDGE A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. SHE IS FEISTY, OPINIONATED AND, I BELIEVE, WILL BE A GREAT MENTOR.”
Well, Mel B is known for being very straight-forward and honest, plus she has tones of experience as a singer and a judge, so I couldn’t think of a better choice to complete the line-up.
They start to film the new series next week, the first part is the auditions, that will visit Manchester, London, Newcastle and Edinburgh.
I look forward to watch the new series, the last couple of series were very weak and disappointing but with a line-up of judges like that, things are looking up!!!
