Filed under: Music MinuteX FactorReality TV



We really have no idea what to make of any of these contestants, but we have to admit…WE LIKE THEM!

Check out some of the more offbeat performers who have continued on past the bootcamp portion of the X Factor UK, and are now in the Judges' House, including Johnny Robinson covering Love Is A Losing Game by Amy Winehouse, and Kitty Brucknell performing Kelly Clarkson's Beautiful Disaster, both for Louis Walsh and Sinitta, while Essex girls Charley and Lucy (2 Shoes) put QUITE the spin on Tik Tok by Ke$ha for Tulisa and Jessie J (above)!

Each and every one of them has their own little breed of wacky, right?

Or just straight up crazy for some! But you cannot deny they've got talent!

We'll be very innerested to see if any of them continue on!

What do U think?? Any of them have what it takes??

Does This X Factor UK Contestant Have A Voice Or WHAT?!

Filed under: Music MinuteX FactorReality TV

We're not sure that she has the star power that some of the other contestants have already shown, but wow, is her voice out of this world!

Check out 31-year-old Sami Brookes of X Factor UK performing Alicia Keys' New York for Louis Walsh and guest-judge Sinitta during the Judges' House segment of auditions (above)!

Those are some powerful pipes!

And she's absolutely lovely, isn't she?! Such a sweetheart!

She'll definitely have her work cut out for her, but if Louis thinks she can put in 100%, we're excited to see where she'll go!

Mariah Carey Tapped To Mentor Contestants On US X Factor!

mariah-carey-tapped-to-mentor-contestants-on-us-x-factor

YES! We had hoped that she would be involved in some capacity!

Back before any of the X Factor/Cheryl Cole drama, there were reports that Simon Cowell was courting a then-very pregnant Mariah Carey for a position on the judges panel, and now, we've gotten word that the diva will in fact, being joining the reality situation, although as a mentor - much like Sinitta is on the UK version!

Although the original right-hand woman is not too happy about it, and reveals:

"Well, let's just say feathers will fly if Mariah takes my spot. Although she is a mega diva vocally, you can expect another 'X Factor' USA drama. I won't just roll over and take it. I hope she can run in high heels."

Uh-oh! D-R-A-M-A!

Although if we were Sinitta, we wouldn't run our mouth much more!

She does NOT want to incur the wrath of Mimi!

LOLz!

That being said, we think that she'll be a WONDERFUL addition to the show - and we're excited to see her show the contestants how a REAL diva werks it!

You go, gurl!

Has Cheryl Cut Ties With Simon??

cheryl-cole-not-speaking-with-simon-cowell

Such a shame that it's come to this.

After essentially being axed from both the UK and US versions of The X Factor, Cheryl Cole has reportedly cut contact with Simon Cowell!

The singer's mother, Joan Callaghan, says:

"She was terrified Simon had become her puppet master and she was being turned into his new Sinitta - Simon's little pet. She is determined to carve out a career without him. He'll have to come up with something special for them to even speak again."

We're sure she's probably not too happy with the way things have gone, but we would never suggest burning bridges with him all-together!

Unfortunately, this sort of seems like this whole situation took on a life of its own, and was pretty out of everyone's control by the time she got pink slipped, but who knows?

There has yet to even be an official announcement, so all we can do is wait and see what comes of this whole mess!

What do U think?? Should Cheryl cut off Simon??

Chezza Snubbed! Not Getting The US X Factor Judging Position?!

Filed under: Simon CowellCheryl ColeX Factor

cheryl-cole-passed-over-for-judging-spot-on-us-x-factor

We guess she's out! But still - any appearance on the show will be a good profile boost for her!

Although Cheryl Cole was originally expected to take a seat on the judges panel of the US version of The X Factor, it appears as though her role has been moved to that of Simon Cowell's helper, much like Sinatta's across the pond, because execs are concerned that her accent is too strong for her to be marketable here!

The insiders explain:

‘People just don’t know who she is over there and people struggle to understand what she is saying. Simon is consoling her with the offer of helping him win the first series, which would give her profile a massive boost. If audiences and contestants can't understand her, it is actually a regulatory offense. Simon Cowell is still one of her biggest supporters. But even though the X Factor is his idea it’s the executives at Fox who have the ultimate say over the make-up of the show.'

Disappointing!

But hey - it's still a step in the right direction for her to get her name out there with American audiences, so we wouldn't be too upset!

And WE can always fill in for her on the judges table! Ha! Just saying!

What do U think?? Should Chezza get the judging spot??

Is Chezza Going To Be A Mentor Instead Of A Judge On American X Factor?

simon-cowell-may-have-to-make-cheryl-cole-a-mentor-on-us-x-factor

Hmm…we definitely think she should be on the judges panel, but we could understand why execs would be more comfortable with her in this position!

Sources close to Simon Cowell have revealed that although he desperately wants Cheryl Cole to make the stateside transition with him to the US version of The X Factor, he may have to change her role to that of a mentor, similar to what Sinitta does on the UK edition of the reality competition!

The insider explains:

"Simon desperately wants Cheryl to be a judge but if that's knocked back by Fox chiefs the next option is to start her as a mentor. It would be a way to test how she's received in America. Plus viewers would be able to warm to her first, rather than having her thrust upon them by going straight on the panel. The truth is, nothing has been signed and the producers still aren't convinced."

Truthfully, we do agree that it's a gamble - but it's one that will DEFINITELY pay off!

Chezza just needs to get her feet wet with American audiences, and if that means as a mentor, then we could definitely get behind that!

But we would LOVE to see her ultimately as a judge!

What do U think?? What role should Chezza play on the US X Factor??

Simon's Exes Ruined His Xmas

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLove LineSimon Cowell

simons xmas ruined by exes

Looks like Simon Cowell did NOT have a happy holiday this year.

According to The Daily Star, Simon's fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy spent the holiday arguing with Cowell's former lovers Jackie St. Clair and Sinitta.

Here's what a source had to say about it:

"They are spoiling his holiday with their constant bitchy sniping. He's had a hectic year and was looking forward to some relaxing time in the sun but these daft women are ruining it for him.

There's been plenty of sniping and they have come close to clawing each other's eyes out. It's all back-biting and bitchy comments.

There have been plenty of fireworks. The trouble is they are all like children desperately trying to be the centre of attention with Simon and they hate competing for his time."

Sorry to hear it, Simon! Hopefully they can call a temporary truce or just ignore each other so U can have a better New Year's!
