Who Will Be Replacing Simon And Chezza On The UK X Factor?

gary-barlow-and-alesha-dixon-in-talks-to-replace-simon-cowell-and-cheryl-cole-on-x-factor-judges-panel

Wow! Not bad replacements, considering the show will be losing TWO huge assets!

Now that Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell have both left the UK X Factor in order to participate in the judges panel on the US edition, there has been just as much strife across the pond behind the scenes of the reality competition, as producers have scrambled to find two new panelists that can successfully fill the void left by the reality honcho and the former Girls Aloud singer!

However, today, Cowell announced that none other than Take That singer Gary Barlow was in advanced negotiations to take his spot, while reports surfaced that Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon would fill Chezza's!

Cowell revealed:

"Gary Barlow is the first person confirmed."

And a source close to Dixon explains:

'He [Cowell] has spent weeks handpicking the right people - he's a perfectionist who changes his mind by the hour. There have been heated debates and disagreements almost every day between Cowell, ITV and senior executives over who they need to sign up to give it some stardust. Alesha is ecstatic. She never thought in a million years that she would be asked. But talks have been on for weeks and have been going well. She has had meeting with ­producers and realises it’s her dream job – an offer she can’t refuse. She’d be sad to turn her back on Strictly, but X Factor is in a completely ­different league.'

Meanwhile, an X Factor spokesperson says:

‘The panel for the UK will be announced in due course.'

Wow! Well - if this pans out the way it did stateside, then we think we pretty much have our new judges!

Here's hoping BOTH new teams will have as much success as the former!

Our fingers are crossed!

What do U think?? Who do you want to see take over for Simon and Chezza??

Oh Hell No! Girls Aloud To Reunite…But WITHOUT Chezza?!

girls-aloud-plan-reunion-without-cheryl-cole

BLASPHEMY!

We really hope this isn't true!

Sources close to Girls Aloud have revealed that the ladies are attempting to reunite for a new album and tour in honor of the group's 10th anniversary, but because of Cheryl Cole's busy schedule and (potential) involvement with the US version of The X Factor, they'd be forging ahead without her!

"The girls are very keen to reunite and start working on another album. Their main love is the band and they all feel ready to get back and start recording. But Cheryl can't commit to that right now. They're all very supportive of her, but they are concerned they could be left behind. They're also worried they might be hanging around forever if they wait for Cheryl. Obviously it's going to be very difficult without Cheryl, but they know they'll do well with another album and Cheryl could even join them for the tour next year if she's available. It makes sense and it doesn't mean that she'd leave the band - she'd just be taking a break."

She had better not be!

We all saw what happened with Take That without Robbie and The Spice Girls without Geri!

It nobody's fault - it just DOESN'T work!

C'mon, Chezza! Clear up some time and at least go into the studio to lay down a FEW vocal tracks!

Ten years is a big deal, you HAVE to honor that!

What do U think?? Would U be excited for a Girls Aloud reunion without Chezza?

Rad! Some of these are really cool!

Apparently, there's more to Robbie Williams than a pretty face and a stellar voice. This afternoon, Robbie took to his blog to share some incredible artwork he painted. He explained that during his downtime touring around with Take That, he's taken up the skill and found that he really likes it!

Awesome! Looks like you have a real eye for it too!

Check out some of Robbie's paintings in the gallery (below).
