Sharon Osbourne has revealed it “feels good” to be back on The X Factor Judging panel, teasing that this year’s series promises to be the most fun.
When asked if she had any reservations about making her return, Mrs O stated: “I think if we’re having fun then the people at home will have fun. If they see that you are really into it and love doing what you do, then it really comes off. You can’t fool the public, they are way too smart.”
After taking a break last year, Louis Walsh has revealed it feels “amazing” to make his return to The X Factor panel, especially as he’s back with his “favourite Judges ever”.
Speaking of how Simon convinced him to take back his seat, Louis said: “Simon and I talk all the time, we’re always good friends and even last year during the show I would call him up and he would just laugh at me every night.
Nicole Scherzinger has confessed that being back on this year’s X Factor Judging panel “feels like home sweet home”… even if Simon had to do some grovelling!
Speaking of her comeback ahead of this weekend’s show, Scherzy said: “It’s a great feeling on the panel, a really natural, family, homey vibe, nothing is forced and there’s a lot of positive, fun energy.”
After welcoming back some familiar faces on this year’s X Factor Judging panel, Simon Cowell has confessed that working with Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger has been “like a little reunion”.
Speaking ahead of the new series, which kicks off on ITV this weekend, the music mogul said that Twitter made him realise just “how much the viewers missed everyone”.
