Dannii Minogue Quits UK X Factor!!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaDannii MinogueX Factor



Dannii Minogue has announced that she's unable to appear on UK's X Factor this year due to scheduling conflicts.

Days before the new series was to launch, Dannii expressed how bummed she was to quit the show. She said:

”I am so disappointed that I can't be a part of The X Factor this year. I'm going to miss the show and the amazing team who work so incredibly hard on it.”

Because of her commitment to Australia's Got Talent, she explains:

"During discussions for me to return to the X Factor it became clear that unfortunately, this year, the X Factor audition dates in the UK clash with the live shows of Australia's Got Talent during June and July.

For this reason I am unable to return. I want to wish the new judges every success for this year's show, and can't wait to see who the British public choose as their next big star.

Thanks to everyone who has shown me so much love and support, and brought me so much joy during my four incredible years working on the show.”

Oh well, Dannii. Yes, we're disappointed that we won't see you on the judges' panel this year, but we are excited for your work on Australia's Got Talent!

    sad times… she was the only judge with a VALID OPINION!!! that cole one wasn't worth a shite!

  3. 3

    Don't know where you got your 'facts' from this time Perez, she quit because Tulisa ( singer from band N Dubz) was brought into replace her. The X Factor was all being moved to suit Gary Barlow and Danni felt like she was being under-valued but her commitments on Australia's Got Talent is her 'excuse' for not returning…. X-Factor UK has gone to the dogs… RIP X- Factor …

    Hope this opens up her schedule for a return to the recording studio! I'd love new DM Music.

    Wish you would move on from these Minogue sisters. They are never going to be anything special here in the states.

    WHO THE FUCK CARES ABOUT XFACTOR UK AND WHO THE HELL IS THIS BITCH?????? IS SHE FUCKING KYLIE'S SISTER OR SOMETHING, WHO THE FUCK CARES………WHO…..CARES……….. FUCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I come on here to read relevant celebrity gossip and you constantly post shit about inconsequential people that no one has heard of or care about. Make a seperate site for Europe because here in America we could give a SHIT! TAKE SIMON AND THAT DAMN CHERYL COLE BACK UK………PLEASE!!!!!!!

  8. 8

    She's an irrelevant no-talent twit who just rides on her sister's coattails, kinda like Ashlee Simpson.

  9. 9

    Dont believe for a second that Dannii would quit!!!the producers probably want to make it look like it was her idea to escape public backlash!what a load of bull!!was so glad that cheryl was off the show but i wont be watching now that Dannii is gone!stay strong Dannii x

    Re: GayRay – What an ignorant little shit you are. You think only americans read this site??? Im sure a HUGE percentage of his views are abroad. This may be irrelevant news to you but not to 99 percent of the UK. If you dont wanna read about it just scroll past it .. but then again you are probably a fat lazy American who's just used up all his/her energy writing out that illiterate paragraph about how much you don't care about this stuff. How ironic.

    As for a seperate site for Europe. Did it ever occur to you that maybe we would like to keep up on things happening over on your side too? We are not all closed minded idiots who think America is just one big landmass and everything beyond it is full of people with "accents", terrorists and tea drinking Brits.

    So just STFU and I hope you dont sneeze out any ignorant inbred little shits that will grow up to be just like you.

    Shame really as the Brit X Factor is really fun to watch. The Australians don't really share their shows with the rest of the world, even though it seems like their entire line up is American and Britishs show and a few of their own. I enjoyed Kylie on X Factor. There has got to be more to this story. This sounds like a step backwards.

    Re: Sharada – LOL, dumbass……did I hit an inbred English nerve. I stand behind what I said fool. Once again Prince Harry, no ones HERE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA could give two shits or shillings (lol) about your asses and once again…..take CHERYL COLE back fuckface! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL! Awwwwwww…..English fuck is mad! Dont be mad :(

    I hope Melanie C lands a judges role. Spice Girl, most successful #1 songwriter after Lennon & McCartney, over 70million recorsds sold (incl spice), experience as group and solo artist, Oliver nominated actress. She's far more qualified than some skank from N*Dubs.

    Re: GayRay – You should really quit posting nonsense like this, you are actually making an ass of yourself. Why don't YOU make YOURSELF a separate site and enjoy it on your own, no one's telling you to read Perez.

    Re: GayRayRe: GayRay – Actually, both of the Minogue sisters are first and foremost Australian. Other than Kylie, their entire family lives here other than when brother Brendan travels abroad to teach from time to time. She has just had her first child so its not a surprise that she wants to settle back home. Both sisters did go overseas to pursue their careers leaving our relatively small nation in search of the big money as most entertainers do and they're both stinking rich now and good on them. My suggestion to you, you racist fucktard, is that if you feel a burning desire to continue with your illiterate and moronic Euro bashing - perhaps you should fly to Afghanastan and go tell our boys fighting your fucking war what you think of them. I don't think you'll get to the third word before you lose your teeth - we're badass over here, not try hard plastic gangsters like you. Run along now dumbass! NEXT!

    Re: Ozfem – Don't give a shit about you asshole……..you spent alot of time on that tirade didn't you? You should concentrate on writing the Minogue family biography loser, LOL…..teeth still intact! :)

  21. 21

    Re: Sharada – first of all let me just say thank you sharada. im an american and its so annoying to read peoples ridiculous posts. obviously entertainment is sometimes spread internationally like this site, some people like that dumbass just don't grasp that.
    anyways, this actually makes me quite sad. as an american who does know and cares about dannii, im very dissappointed that she wont be back on the show. loved watching episodes on youtube and she was by FAR my favorite judge. she seemed the most real and fair. great mentor with her song choices and actually giving a shit bout her team as well. hope this show suffers now, but even if it does they'll just blame it on the loss of cheryl cole. sad.

    Re: sd_man – Wow, what a weenie…….squish squish, "as an american who does know and cares about dannii,"……..LOLOLOLOLOLOL, fuckface

    I want to hear more about Pres. Obama and what he has done to turn this country around.

    Unemployment = down

    Thank you daily for a wonderful president and beautiful first lady.

    And in late breaking news… Sharon Osborne confirms she is to rejoin the XFactor UK… I totally expect this to be announced now. :o /

    Love Dannii as a judge, but not as much as I

    LOVE Sharon –period. Better TV and an excellent mentor. Obviously got emotional issues but that's the better TV part…

  28. 28

    Australia's Got Talent is such a funny show I love it less talents then X-Factor but she probably has way more fun working on it.
    She has a house in Melbourne and had her first baby, so think that's why she wants to be in Australia instead.

    Hey guys! My roommate and I are trying to win furniture for our new apartment. Please help us out by watching our youtube video! I promise you'll laugh and it'll help us out too! Thanks a bunch

    Re: GayRay – I think this would be an appropriate time to quote some lines from the most prolific movie of our generation…"Your language is offensive…Nobody's gonna fuck on you! I'm on your side! I hate Godzilla! I hate him too! I hate him! He destroys cities! This isn't your fault. I'll get you some pants." Let's get the love back on this board!

  31. 31

    Re: GayRay – I would tell you to research kylie but you must be one those trailor park trash bitches who just learnd how to type on a computer. kylie has won grammys and she has even made billboard history. (get out of my way) went num.1, (better than toda)y went num.2, and (higher) went num.3 all at the same time, on the same chart,and in the same year. no other american artist has ever done that you fucking hater. Assholes like you almost make me ashamed to be american you make us look like ignorant assholes. Dont think just because we live in the same country you can speak for me because you can't I embrace every culture because that is what this country is based on.

  32. 32

    I am a american and I care about kylie and dannii both. assholes like you are the reason there are so many bad singers on the radio now. Just because you are a closed minded asshole dosen't mean everyone else in the counrty is. I have you know her tour here is sold out in every venu and the critics love her that goes for billbaord and rollingstone you ignorant fuck.

  38. 38

    Re: GayRay – No you idiot you didn't hit an "inbred English nerve" because I am not English. I'm Brittish but I am not English, you probably don't know what the difference is though, do you?

    This is sad news, but at least we get to keep her at home in Oz, right here in Melbourne.

  40. 40

    she was obviously sacked, if they could move the auditions around to suit Gary Barlow they could have done it for her too.Word on the street is Simon Cowell wanted to completely change about the judges panel and Danii just didnt fit the plan. This story is made up to give her a bit of dignity about the whole thing.Also X-Factor is a waaaay bigger paycheck than Australias Got Talent could ever be and she would be a fool to pick that over the X-Factor but thats showbiz baby!!!

  41. 41

    Noo :( Dannii was the best judge!!!! I was looking foward to watching x factor this year without smug Cowell & cole and now they get rid of Dannii!! Big mistake!

  42. 42

    Re: kylielover02 – I was clearly talking about Dannii assmunch……I hope you didn't strain your hamster hand fingers writing all that drivel.

  43. 43

    Re: Sharada – Nope…..annnnnnnnnd obviously could give a flying fuck - now go brush your yellow "British" horse teeth. :)

  44. 44

    Good, she's was the worst judge, at least Louis was funny (though unintentionally). Re: Ivybby – Get a life, seriously why comment if you don't care?

  45. 45

    Re: GayRay – Who do you think you are? I like coming on here to read relevant news in both Europe and America, why is it your place to decide on which celebs he posts about…. next time you don't wanna read about this star just keep scrollling……

    Anyways - Sad to see her go although it'll be nice to have the show shaken up a bit anyway :)

  46. 46

    Re: Welsh_Girl – I'll read and comment on whomever and whatever the hell I want bitch so fuck off!

  47. 47

    I like Dannii. But I don't think that she quit. I bet she was forced to quit. There is no way she would choose Australia instead of UK

    Re: GayRay – Actually i'm a dental nurse .. and my teeth are perfect and NATURALLY white i'll have you know.

    Pay no mind to GayRay…she's stupid! The stereotypes about gay men being cultured, witty, and intelligent have been shot down by IdiotRay.

    You know Danni's partner is a model in Melbourne right? He's basically moved here (from the UK) and their child was deliberately born here so he'd have an Aussie citizenship. His career is here, her family is here and so is enough of her career to continue being a good mother at the same time. If i was her, i'd be doing it the same way.
