Rita Ora Is The THIRD Judge To Quit X Factor This Season… Leaving Simon Cowell All Alone!

no title

Five down, one to go.

X Factor may seem like it's already had a revolving door of celebrity judges over the past 12 years, but things have never been as bad as they are right now!

That's because it was just announced that Rita Ora has officially quit the singing competition, making her the fifth casualty of the year… and Series 13 hasn't even started airing yet!

The singer — who is totally not Becky with the Good Hair — apparently followed fellow judges Nick Grimshaw and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, as well as cohosts Olly Murs and Caroline Flack, out the door, leaving just Simon Cowell and the recently returned Dermot O'Leary as the faces of the show.

Rita shared her decision in a heartfelt message to fans on Twitter late Monday night, saying:

Why Isn't Fifth Harmony Happy?? See What The Girls Have To Say About The Dark Side Of Fame…

no title

Sounds like they could seriously use some work from home days…

Fifth Harmony is literally the most famous girl group of the past decade, but success in the music industry doesn't always mean things are going perfectly in your personal life.

Dinah Jane Hansen, Ally Brooke, Camila Cabello, Normani Kordei, and Lauren Jauregui are currently on the cover of Billboard Magazine looking all sexy and confident, but in the pages they get surprisingly real about their struggles.

For one thing, Camila opens up about how going from auditioning for X Factor as a soloist to being in an A-List band gave her unbelievable anxiety, saying:

"I'll start with the low because that led to the high: I was having terrible anxiety, nonstop. My heart would beat really fast the whole day. Two hours after I woke up, I'd need a nap because my body was so hyperactive. It was so eff — sorry, but it was so f*cked up. I was scared of what would happen to me, of the things my brain might tell me. I realized the stuff I thought was important isn't worth my health. Now I write in a diary every day, work out and meditate."

We're glad she figured out what works best for her!

However, Lauren shares similar feelings about the Simon Cowell singing competition:

Simon Cowell Gets Locked Up Like Hannibal For America's Got Talent's First Season 11 Teaser! Watch!

no title

He'll eat your liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti — AND insult your singing voice!

Simon Cowell may be famous stateside for judging American Idol and X Factor, but he's about to complete his trifecta.

That's because, as you may already know, the boisterous Brit is replacing Howard Stern for Season 11 of America's Got Talent!

We first heard about Howard's exit way back in June of last year, but it looks like NBC wants us to get excited for Simon's return to TV because the competition series' first teaser is too much to handle!

We all love to hate Simon as an on-screen villain, but Heidi Klum, Mel B, Nick Cannon, and Howie Mandel, aren't taking any chances with their evil costar — going as far as locking him up Silence of the Lamb style!

Will U be tuning in for Simon on AGT??

Ch-ch-check out a sneak peek of America's Got Talent ahead of its premiere on May 31 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC (below)!!!

Beau Dermott just knocked our socks off!

On Saturday, the 12-year-old took to Britain's Got Talent to showcase her surprisingly strong pipes.

The young hopeful even impressed the typically sour faced Simon Cowell, who seemed to love her rendition of Defying Gravity from Wicked.

While Ms. Dermott appeared shy and uncomfortable before she began to sing, that all melted away as soon as she opened her mouth.

The Ratings Are In — American Idol Said Goodbye To A LOT Of People On Thursday Night!

no title

What a ratings boom! A little too late though…

Simon Cowell, Barack Obama, Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson, and a whole host of others showed up for the series finale of American Idol on Thursday night, and that star power helped ensure a LOT of people watched the last episode ever of the impactful show!

While last season's finale was an all-time low for the music competition show, the star-studded appearances — and let's be honest, the idea that this was the last Idol ep EVER — ensured that last night's finale was up 76% in the 18-49 demographic, and up 61% in total viewers from the week before!!

Related: Watch The Emotional AI Reunion!

In total, the show drew 12.94 million people in to watch the two-hour finale, which was the best ratings for a finale that Idol has gotten in three years.

The FOX show sure may not be what it once was, but we can't forget how it influenced pop culture and gave us so many stars, like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and more.

It appears viewers didn't forget that nostalgia, either — and sent Idol off into the sunset the right way!

Did U watch last night?! What'd U think of the finale??

While there were so many great moments from the epic sendoff, one of our favorites HAD to be Simon Cowell making a surprise appearance and reuniting with his former fellow judges Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson — and of course host Ryan Seacrest!

What made this so special was Cowell, who often has nothing but harsh things to say, got a bit misty as he reflected on all the fun memories of working on the show. Simon even admitted he was a bit emotional as he said:
