X Factor’s Rita Ora, Cheryl Cole or Dannii Minogue to replace Jessie J on The Voice 2013?
Last year Jessie J guest judged on The X Factor, when she appeared in the judges houses’ round with Tulisa Contostavlos. Just days later she announced that she would be joining The Voice as a coach. Insiders have claimed that Rita Ora could pull a similar stunt when her X Factor scenes air this summer.
The RIP hitmaker joined the X Factor panel when auditions hit London in June and sat alongside Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and Tulisa Contostavlos before Nicole Scherzinger was chosen as the new permanent judge.
A source has said that her warm reception there has attracted the attention of BBC bosses, who are currently on the lookout for someone to replace Jessie J on next year’s series of The Voice.
Star magazine claims that Rita isn’t the only one on the Beeb’s wish list and admitted that ideally they would also love to sign former X Factor judges Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue, or even Anastacia, who joined the panel for the Glasgow tryouts in June.
A source told the publication:
“There are lots of big names in the frame, including Rita Ora, Anastacia and even Dannii Minogue, but Cheryl would be a dream signing.”
“Everyone knows she’s right for the gig but it’s just a matter of making it work.”
The insider added: “Everyone at the BBC loved Cheryl when she performed on the show… bosses are convinced she would be a hit.”
Cole’s manager Will.i.am has already committed to a second series of The Voice and would be the perfect person to convince his client to take part. Danny O’Donoghue has also revealed that he will be back but it seems unlikely that Tom Jones will take his seat in 2013.
