So after Simon and Cheryl headed off to the US for an American version of X Factor – although Cheryl didn’t stay for long! – and Dannii announced she wouldn’t be returning to X Factor, you might have been wondering who on earth was going to judge on the new show!
Well, you don’t need to wait anymore as the judges for The X Factor 2011 have been confirmed as Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos.
Sadly for all you many fans of Cheryl Cole she will not be returning despite rumours that she’d had last minute talks with the producers.
So it means that X Factor will have a fresh new look this year with only Louis Walsh having been a judge on the show before.
So what do you make of the new judges? Is there anyone else you’d rather have seen? Let us know by leaving a message!
