A familiar face is coming back to X Factor this year.
It’s been announced today that Sharon Osbourne has been confirmed to take over Tulisa on this years show.
Sharon has been signed to a £1.5million deal with a extra £300k just so she can fly back and forward to america where she lives now.
The reason they have brought Osbourne back is to try and boost the rating up as over the last year they have fallen.
A source has said:
‘Tulisa appealed to the younger X Factor fans but they could do with winning back some of the mature viewers – and Sharon fits that demographic perfectly.’
We still do not know the other judges but it has been reported that Louis Walsh and Gary Barlow are back and Mel B who’s being lined up to replace Nicole Scherzinger.
Christopher Maloney may have been getting a lot of votes over the last few weeks but last night he was kicked off the show.
The Liverpudlian comes in as third on the X Factor putting though James Arthur And Jahmene Douglas into the final show tonight.
Over the weeks there has been mixed reviews about the 34-year-old but it looked like his X Factor winning dream was over.
‘The critiques I’ve had and negative press, I’m the third finalist and thanks to everyone that’s been supporting.
Gary Barlow told his act:
‘Congratulations you’ve done brilliantly.’
One person who is happy about Chris not winning is Simon Cowell as he said that if Chris wins the show he would refuse to give him a record deal.
X Factor judge Tulisa likes to show her though feisty side but now the ‘female boss’ has admitted that she a big softy at heart!
In an interview on Loose Woman today the singer admitted that she likes to sit at home with her iPod in listening to soppy music and cry her heart out.
During the talk about music Tulisa admitted that she sometimes she likes to sit there listening to X Factor co-judge Gary Barlow‘s music.
‘Sometimes (I cry at) a girly film, but usually after a night out – I usually have it maybe once a week, after a night out – I come home, put my iPod on and just have a good cry and it makes me feel better.’
When she was asked about Gary Barlow’s music she said:
‘Do you know what, I’m not going to lie, a couple of times I’ve listened to Rule The World crying my eyes out.’
James Arthur Gets Told His Performance Was The ‘Performance Of The Series’ As He Performs His First Ballad
On last nights X Factor James Arthur was told by Gary Barlow that his performance was the ’performance of the series’ as he took on his own rendition of The Power Of Love.
James closed the show as all the contestants had to perform twice.
Gary told James:
‘You are a great singer, but it’s much more that that. You make people emote, you bring out emotions,’ the head judge praised.
‘I know all over the country people will have stopped what they were doing to watch that performance.’
Jahmene Douglas had to hold back the tears and so did the judges as he performed At Last by Etta James.
All of the judges agreed that Jahmene’s performance was ‘Jahmazing’ as that’s what Nicole Scherzinger.
Jahmenes performance was so good he had Nicole in tears though out the performance.
Louis Walsh called the performance: ‘Jahmazing’, after which Gary joked:
‘Louis, did you really just say that? Ok, that was Jahmazing!’
Next up was Christopher Maloney who they say all the granny’s love.
But did the grans love his performance of Josh Groban’s famous ballad You Raise Me Up
Maloney dedicated his performance to his Nan who told him to enter the X Factor in the first place!
In his second performance Chris took on Michael Buble‘s I Just Haven’t Met You Yet.
The girls fave was last to perform as Union J performed Labrinth hit Beneath Your Beautiful before taking on ballad Already There by Lonestar.
Jamie Hamblett, George Shelley, Josh Cuthbert and Jaymi Hensley got good comets from the judges and they where also compared to One Direction and JLS.
Rylan Clark Get Booted Out Of The X Factor As The Judges Say It Was His Best Vocal Performance Of The Show
On Sunday nights X Factor Essex boy Ryaln Clark was booted out of the show!
In the sing off it was down to Rylan and boyband Union J who had to prove to the judges who should stay in the compensation.
Tulisa, Garry Barlow and Louis Walsh voted for Union J and Nicole Scherzinger went for her own act Rylan.
Shouting to the audience Clark said when asked what has the show meant to him:
It’s something we would never see Ellan Henderson and James Arthur in the sing off but on last night’s X Factor it was exactly that!
After shows jokes Rylan Clark and Christopher Maloney got into the next round of the show.
Ella was tipped to win the show but now that will not be happening.
The vote was put to dead lock as the judges failed to pick what act they where sending home and the public vote went for James to stay sending Ella home.
The 16-year-old said after the vote was read out:
‘This year , the talent on the show is inc
‘(I loved) meeting people, the contestants are great. I love you all. I loved performing on this stage. I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve grown so much.’
Her mentor Tulisa was not happy at all as she told the camera:
This is exactly when people are voting for the wrong people. These people should be finalists.
‘This is ridiculous. My decision is James, even though I love him to death. I shouldn’t have to make this decision tonight.’
When it was announced that Christopher got in the crowd went mad booing him and by the looks of the other judges faces they where not happy at all.
