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.
X Factor judge Tulisa has meet her brother for thr first time after she has been searching for him for five years.
Tulisa meet up with Neil Jones on Sunday and the pair instantly hit it off, chatting for more than six hours with both vowing to make up for the years they spent apart.
Neil only found out he had a sister when he was 17 but he did not know that she was famous and a singer.
Tulisa released a statement saying:
‘I’m so happy to finally meet my brother. This has been a very important weekend for my family.’
And now a source has said:
‘Naturally Neil was stunned when he realised he was related to someone whose records he bought unknowingly.
‘Tulisa was incredibly nervous but the meeting went really well and Neil has been opened into the family with open arms.’
Will.i.am and Britney Spears have had so much sucess with their single Scream & Shout but it looks like they could be facing legal issues over the song!
UK X Factor judges Tulisa has claimed that she wrote the single and is now going to sue Will.i.am for stealing the song.
Tulisa recorded the track under a different name and co-wrote it with Jean Baptiste.
The sight of you singer was going to release ‘Scream & Shout’ as her third single, before will.i.am took the song and re-recorded it with Britney Spears.
A source has told The Sun:
“Tulisa is still fuming with Will for taking the song off her. The fact the song blew up only makes it worse.
“She’s well within her right to claim some of the publishing money. If she proves the words are hers, she could get a huge pay-out.”
Tulisa was going to call the song ’I Don’t Give a F**k’ and was intended for her debut album The Female Boss.
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.’
