X Factor judges Nicole Scherzinger, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh were gathered in London today for the official press launch of The X Factor (along with presenters Caroline Flack and Dermot O’Leary. Fourth judge, Gary Barlow, did not attend the launch today following his and wife Dawn’s loss of their daughter Poppy).
Returning to ITV1 this weekend, The X Factor make’s it’s ninth appearance on the TV schedule – leading us all the way to Christmas where the winning contestant will aim to take the number one position in the singles chart.
Each year the four X Factor judges face off against each other as they are each given a category of contestants – the boys, the girls, the over 25s, and the groups. Perhaps finding the official launch a little over-exciting, Nicole (who joins the show after judging on the US version of The X Factor) inadvertently let slip which category she will be representing. However… it’s too good a surprise to spoil, so we will enjoy the position of power we have found ourselves in and let guessing commence.
Which category do you think each of the judges would be best to represent?
