While it hasn’t be 100% confirmed who is going to be judging the UK version of the X Factor, over in the States we found out who would be replaced and who were the new judges.
It’s been confirmed that Britney Spears will join the judging panel – alongside former Disney-star Demi Lovato – replacing Paula Abdul and former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger.
After the success of Tulisa on the UK version of the show, it is clear that Simon Cowell was eager to inject some youth into the US show saying that Demi Lovato was so important to get on board because she speaks to a younger audience.
The 19-year-old has said that she is ‘so thrilled to join this legendary group of judges. To be able to spend each week with Simon, L.A. and Britney watching the best that America has to offer is truly a dream come true.’
Britney is clearly excited about her new role, telling Simon and LA to ‘watch out’ and admitting that she is a ‘huge fan of the show and now I get to be a part of the action.’
What do you think of the new judging panel?
