The X Factor auditions started yesterday in Liverpool and new judge Geri Halliwell definitely made her presence known. After filling in for Dannii Minogue in 2010 when she was on maternity leave, Geri Halliwell faced very mixed reviews over her suitability as a judge on the ITV hit show, despite her previous experience on Popstars: The Rivals.
The former Spice Girl showed the crowd just how excited she was to be back as a guest judge for the new series by climbing on top of her car and grabbing the tannoy to ensure she was the centre of attention.
“I’m incredibly excited and proud to join The X Factor in Liverpool and have the opportunity to find a new star. Those four seats are the hottest seats in Britain right now!” Geri told The X Factor. She added: “I hope to share all my experience and the ups and the downs of how to make it globally in the music industry with the contestants and I’m really looking forward to having a blast with Gary, Tulisa and the lovely Louis.”
What do you think of the new X Factor judging lineup? And who will be the best dressed this year?
