X Factor 2012: Tulisa says she wants Cheryl Cole back but Katy Perry’s unofficially named as new judge!
MTV reveal today that X Factor judge Tulisa has revealed that she’d love to have former judge Cheryl Cole back on the show this year, now that it’s been officially confirmed that neither Kelly Rowland nor Dannii Minogue are returning to the show.
During an interview with Free Radio’s James Merritt, Tulisa said, “If I was a producer and I was picking judges for the show, I would probably go for different people than who I would like if I was on the show and wanted sitting next to me.
“I was a big fan of the show before I was on the panel, so I used to love watching Cheryl, so I would, yeah. I don’t think that’s going to happen though.”
No, I think we’d all agree that’s highly unlikely, however, The People reckon that US singer Katy Perry HAS been lined up as a new X Factor UK judge, and it’s all a done deal with an official announcement expected imminently…
Katy of course made an appearance as a guest judge on the show in 2010 during the Dublin auditions, and the viewing audience warmed to her right away, as did – apparently – Simon Cowell.
However, a spokesperson for The X Factor wouldn’t confirm or deny that Katy had been hired, and said an announcement about the judging panel line up would be made “in due course”.
Would you like to see Katy on the show as a full time judge?
