Joe McElderry has admitted that he would love to see some real star power on The X Factor this year.

The former winner of the ITV show would most like to see his idol Beyonce taking a seat on the panel, but if bosses can’t sign her, then he’s willing to accept a Sharon Osbourne / Louis Walsh combo he has revealed.

Simon Cowell is busy finalising his lineup for the new series and it is expected that the new judges will be confirmed in the next few weeks, before judges’ auditions begin this month.

It’s thought that Tulisa has lost her seat at the table, while Nicole Scherzinger is said to be still weighing up her options over a comeback. Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh are thought to have already signed their contracts the channel.


Joe would love to see the former Destiny’s Child star joining up and he told heat magazine:

“That’d be pretty amazing!”

However he would equally like to see Sharon returning to the show and continued:

“I know Sharon Osbourne’s rumoured to be coming back. If Sharon gets the job, I think she’ll really make an impact. I want to see her throwing water in Louis Walsh’s face again.”

Joe is a fan if singing shows in general it seems and he admitted that he is also loving the BBC’s talent show offering The Voice.

Explaining what it is about the series that captures his attention, McElderry added:

“I love it. The blind auditions are fantastic – and scary. Walking out to silence and singing to four chairs…the acts have guts on that show.”
