X Factor 2012: Fans want Dannii Minogue back!

Since Kelly Rowland announced yesterday that she wouldn’t be returning to The X Factor, the rumour mill has been going into overdrive about who may be replacing her on the ITV show.

There is always the option that show bosses will go back to the old three judge format of course, but that seems unlikely and for now, the front runner for Kelly’s job seems to be former panelist Dannii Minogue.

The mum of one judged on the ITV show from 2007 – 2011, but stepped down last year after constant rescheduling of the judges auditions, meant that her X factor dates clashed with her filming commitments on Australia’s Got Talent.

However, it has been claimed that show boss Simon Cowell is keen to have the fan favourite back on board and leading up the panel, along with Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos.

Fans seem supportive of Dannii’s return and commenting yesterday on Unreality TV, a viewer named Gav wrote:

“I said weeks ago Kelly wasn’t coming back and that was from someone in production,glad she’s gone she wasn’t a very good judge at all,I’d be happy with Dannii or Sharon back.”

Another named Aaron tweeted:

“Dannii Minogue might return to X Factor!? Don’t think I’ve been so happy in ages!!! :D”

And a Twitter user named Steph wrote:

“It’s nice to know that Kelly Rowland wont be on X Factor anymore. Get Dannii Minogue back on!”

    In your dreams, she will come back, bigger and better than ever, then people will realise it was a big mistake forcing her to quit. As for her being a judge on the US version, apparently her name has been the mix for a while.I hope its true because she would bring her vast knowledge of the music industry. It will be the uk’s loss.

    She offers a vast amount of experience to the music industry which more than qualifies her to be a judge and give constructive criticism to contestants. She didnt say she had musical commitments, she said she had ‘global commitments’. Who are the many that agree with you. From what i see on this forum and others there are many people who would disagree with your view. As for britney being a judge on x factor US. I heard that producers are worried that she could have another meltdown on tv. They are in two minds whether she could handle the pressure. I know who would be the safer option then, but it would be an interesting combination of judges, britney and kelly.
