X Factor Uk Judge Gary Barlow Threatens To Quit Over Judging Scam?!

| Filed under: TV NewsAnglophiliaMusic MinuteNicole ScherzingerX Factor


Oh no!

Even though our baby girl Britney Spears and sassy sweet Demi Lovato are two cherries atop a gynourmous X Factor sundae, it seems the original X Factor over in the UK is more a melting ice-creamy MESS, and is dealing with all sorts of dramz!!

First we hear that Nicole Scherzinger is NOT happy about her judging stint on the show, and NOW we hear head judge Gary Barlow is threatening to QUIT over Sunday night's results show!

Apparently, there are whisperings that judge Louis Walsh, who was seemingly rooting for contestant Carolynne Poole, was TOLD by producer (and Simon Cowell's bestie) Richard Holloway to vote a certain way, thus resulting in Carolynne's elimination.

When Carolynne's fate was announced, Gary immediately walked off set, and now we hear he allegedly called a meeting with the show's execs to give an ultimatum: no more fakery, or he quits!

One X Factor insider reveals:

"Gary is fiercely proud of his reputation and signed up for the show because he wanted to nurture genuine talent. The reason he wanted to be on it was to put a stop to these tricks and to stop insulting the artists and viewers. The pantomime some of his fellow judges bring to the show drives him insane and he believes it undermines the credibility of the whole show. Sunday’s antics infuriated him. He was livid. He called a dinner for last night and issued an ultimatum — if this ever happens again he is off. No questions asked. Gary is demanding that genuine talent should always be recognised ahead of pantomime acts like Rylan who might pull in a few more phone votes for the novelty factor."

Hot damn!!

AND Gary's not the only one who believes mischief was afoot during that particular judging session!

It seems over 1000 people called in to a media watch group based in the UK, complaining about the way things were handled on Sunday's X Factor episode!

Of course, Richard Holloway claims that he never told Louis anything other than which order the judging was going to be in… but the fact that he went up to the judge DURING the taping of the show, right before a live sing off, and whispered something into Louis' ear, well… it's mighty suspect!

Ah well, we hope everything resolves itself and Gary stays with the show. Without someone like Gary, the sliver of integrity a show like X Factor has would be gone quicker than, um, Carolynne Poole!

    One of my friends is on the show and I was there at the live shows, actually right behind the judges. What you didn't see on tv was that this guy also crawled over to Gary as soon as he'd spoken to Louis and whispered something to him as well. So all this "Gary being outraged" is bollocks, he knew exactly what was going down.

    He should leave, he has been very bitter and rude lately. And lets not forget about his tax scam scandal that he is trying to hush down. Talk about honesty, he is FAKE. I say kick him out!

    you do realise that these stories are all PR stunts to get the ratings up? XF has always pulled this crap. they have a PR team especially dedicated to getting these rumours out winkwink.

    Louis knew what he was doing, and they know they have to keep the "joke act" in for at least a few weeks. I'd be very surprised if Gary wasn't in on what was happening either! It's a pantomime!

    Many women are seeking older men coz they assume older men are usually more established and settled. I’m a 21 yr old college student and I like older men too. It’s not about money, but maturity and interests. I met my BF on — ЅeekУoungеr. СοM — He is a 40 yr old doctor. If you are interested in inter-generational relationships, maybe you can take a try.vfr453

    X factor is a flashy stupid all surface show. Simon Cowell is tired and old news. UK and US both.

    It's pretty obvious that everything the "mentors" ("judges") said during the USA X Factor judges' homes shows was scripted and rehearsed to purposely make it seem more dramatic than it really should have been.

    So what will Gary Barlow do now that Tulisa voted to keep Rylan, even than he is an obviously inferior singer. We'll see if he puts his integrity above his desire to be in the spotlight
