Kylie Might Fill In For Dannii On X-Factor!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaKylie MinogueDannii Minogue


With Dannii Minogue preggers and needing cover for her maternity leave, it appears that her sister Kylie Minogue will be helping out!

Rumors were swirling before that Dannii was going to get the axe due to her pregnancy, but sources close to the show say that won't be happening:

"Dannii will definitely be back and has not been axed. There has been a lot of speculation but we want her back. She really blossomed last year. Dannii gave an absolutely blinding performance in the X Factor last year - the whole nation was captivated by her. She has a poise and a confidence and is completely compelling."

So it looks like Kylie and perhaps some other stars will be filling in for the audition rounds until she returns. The source adds:

"It would be completely impractical for her to do the audition rounds, and a lot will depend on what she wants to do following the birth. Last year the contract wasn't signed until June, so she's not worried at all.

"She loves the X Factor and it is a huge priority for her, so she will do what it takes to make the situation work for everyone."

Well we think Kylie is a more than suitable replacement — how exciting!

    Hmmm. As a huge Dannii fan I'd hate for Dannii to fall back under Kylie's shadow, so I kinda hope Kylie doesn't do it. Kylie knows full well that's what would happen, so hopefully she won't do it (it's not like she needs to promote herself anyway - most of the world's media has it's collective head up her ass)

    They're VERY famous just about everywhere except the US.
    Both former child actresses turned adult singers.

    Nice move! Showing your ignorance by asking who's Kylie Minogue.

    Those women are gorgeous!

    Hope Kylie does it. It would be a boost for her already wonderful career and would keep it in the family. Two wishes: Dannii has a girl baby to carry on the Minogue name and that Kylie gets a chance to be a mom.

    I'm reallly glad. Cowell is so fickle….she is everything your source says, graceful, genuine and really fair. She's also really great with her acts (despite what the papers say). I can't say, however, that I'm not SO excited that Kylie's caretaking for a while!

    Ummm….why does she have a white square in front of her? Does she not want the baby bump photographed?

    Re: Revolennon – It's the award for "Ultimate TV Personality" at the Elle style awards last month that Dannii won (again).
