It’s August and once again, the biggest music singing contest is back, yes everyone, it is The X Factor! We are into series five now and once again there are some changes. The categories stay the same and so does Dermot O’Leary! But the judges change once again as Sharon Osbourne departs from the judging panel. A new judge steps in, in the form of Cheryl Cole, member of the successful girl band, Girls Aloud. She joins Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Dannii Minogue for another year of hopeful talent.
The auditions are going to be playing for a few weeks and already we have had some good talent and some pretty awful ones too. The one highlight that was particularly striking was one of the former Popstars: The Rivals contestants returned to give it another go, Nikk. He returned to see Cheryl who was absolutely shocked to see him! As he performed, the other judges were not so happy and told him to stop living his dream as a singer. Cheryl could not take the pressure and left the judging panel. So heartbreaking.
What do you think of the return of The X Factor? Good or bad? Let me know!
