x factor's union j to usa move

previous x factor uk finalists boy band union j have moved to the usa to re-invent themselves, which they have said is helping them to find there own musical direction, they had been prophesied as the next one direction, but this was too big of a shadow for them, they have now moved to los angeles and this has helped them to come out from this shadow that they had been under.

at the moment they are now living in the usa and making there new album, since the x factor they have now signed a new record contract with epic and are trying to find there own sound and re-invent themselves.

as far as the new series of the x factor uk goes, i would look for the start date for the new series to be near the end of august when the new series starts back on itv with the judges auditions and the return of simon cowell and cheryl cole, also this year it looks like x factor uk will be more popular then strictly come dancing which will be a first for a lot of years if this happens.

Cheryl Fernandez Versini new x factor 2014 judge?

has x factor uk 2014 got a new judge? Cheryl Fernandez Versini is the new x factor judge, through a name change, cheryl cole of course who is now known as Cheryl Fernandez Versini, just got married recently to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, so for cheryl's new name it is a bit of a tongue twister likes her new husbands.

so for x factor i can see louis walsh making the gaff of still calling her cole, when it comes to changing things around, with everything being digital in the world and media nowadays it should not be such a big problem for her career, whereas about 10 years ago, that might of been one of the reasons for not changing her name from cole possibly.

so your new x factor judge will be, remember at the start of each episode where that hidden guy says every judges name as they walk out?, that announcer guy you never see, but you just get used to hearing speak so don't even realize he is there, well it can make him work a bit harder now, instead of just being able to announce a short name he now gets to announce something more exotic with Cheryl Fernandez Versini.

when does x factor start on tv 2014 dates/times?

when does x factor uk start back on tv 2014 with the auditions, just looking itv.com and they said the x factor starts back on itv next month, this is on a post that was posted on june the 21st, so that would make a potential return of x factor to tv on july 21st, but i am not so sure they are accurate.

what it looks like is that the return date will be sometime in august, so the best estimates for this also going by the previous 10 series premiering in either the 3rd or 4th week of august, so we could be looking at start date back on tv for x factor to be saturday august the 23rd or saturday the 30th august.

this would also fit in the time frame of all the previous seasons/series and needs to be something along those lines so the series can fit all the episodes in before the finals which are in mid december, so you are probably looking at sometime in late august being this years start date for x factor uk 2014.

for the start time on a night it always seems to be around 8pm that the x factor starts on a saturday night, and for the series now i think you always get saturdays and sundays, originally i think x factor just aired on a saturday a lot of years ago, but in recent years it always seems to be on tv on saturdays and sunday nights, with most of the results from the public phone voting being shown on sunday nights each year.

cheryl cole about x factor usa sacking

cheryl cole has opened up about being sacked from the x factor usa by judge simon cowell, she was very angry at the time, and sent simon cowell a text message after she found out that she had to leave the american x factor after only judging the first of the usa auditions.

well the text message even if edited is too strong to post as it filled with a lot of expletives or it is all basically one long tirade aimed at cowell and the xfactor.

so she has now forgiven simon cowell for sacking her from her judges role, and said that he did the right thing in sacking her, because she was not ready or at the time up to judging the x factor usa auditions.

now cherly cole is back judging the xfactor-uk-2014 with simon cowell again, and all is good, and there is no issues about what went on in the past between the two judges, she says it was a good wake up call for her to get her life back in order and start over again, so far the judges auditions for x factor uk 2014 have pretty much all been done, and i think it is now onto the boot camp stage when x factor returns back on itv television in a few months time.

mel b usa to australia to uk x factor's busiest ever judge

mel b (busy b) goes from the usa to australia to uk, the x factor's busiest ever judge, so from her weekly judging spot on the american idol 2014, mel b then went on to judge the voice kids australia finals, then onto judging the x factor 2014 auditions all in the space of about 1 week.

maybe took on too many judging roles at once there, these are going to be the auditions that get televised when the x factor 2014 starts back on telly this year in a few months time, the judges auditions are the part of the x factor that get shown on the tv, whereas before that there was the first stage of auditions that people attend and audition in front of producers etc and these do not get televised though.

so far this years new x factor judging panel of simon cowell, cheryl cole, louis walsh and melanie brown have been to manchester, london, newcastle and edinburgh scotland.

is the x factor series scripted somewhat?

new x factor judge mel b who is currently in the usa judging the america's got talent auditions 2014, has already had a falling out with simon cowell over how she will present herself this year when she starts on the x factor uk judging panel.

so this brings into question on whether the x factor uk is slightly scripted to cause more controversy and thus increase the viewing figures, it would seem the answer to this is a yes, and if you have watched the x factor over the years, they do purposefully seem to try to have controversy, which as a result increases the viewing figures, this is why x factor is not just a singing contest but also a personality contest, this gets more viewers, rather then it being just a out right serious the best singer always wins contest.

so the falling out with mel b and simon cowell or if not cowell but the producers, was because they were hoping that mel b could live up to her scary spice persona when judging this years x factor, and be the kind of pantomime villain of the judging panel, which she has refused to do.

back in 2010 when mel b was a guest judge on the x factor uk, she did play up to that persona and was quite forthwith with the auditionee's, but this time around as a full time judge she has said she will not be playing any accentuated parts, it is also rumored that x factor producers would of liked to see some fiery exchanges between cheryl cole and mel b, which mel has also ruled out, and has said she is basically going to judge the x factor as herself and not play up to any exaggerated parts or faked performances as a judge.

this is a in a bid to try and revive the show which has had poor ratings since the years simon cowell and cheryl cole left the uk to go judge the newly formed x factor usa at the time, now cowell and cole is back and want to see the x factor uk back to where it was in the past, in the early days of the x factor uk and american idol simon cowell did used to play the part of the bad judge and give people who were auditioning a much harder time and more harsher comments then the other judges, but in the recent years simon cowell mellowed and stopped being the angry judge on the panel, the x factor uk is booked in with itv for 3 seasons now, including 2015 and 2016!.

x-factors xtra factor 2014 caroline flack gets the axe

the x-factors xtra factor 2014 caroline flack gets the axe after 3 years as host, and is replaced by another xtra so it is a straight swap of sorts, because radio 1-xtra dj sarah jane crawford is replacing her.

whether caroline flack was actually axed from the x factor line up or she left of her own devices though is not exactly clear.

the start date for this years x factor uk and xtra-factor is looking like it will be back on tv in september, so this should give mel b plenty of time to go from america's got talent and then onto the x factor uk.

also matt richardson has also left the xtra-factor as host as well, he filled the place as caroline flacks sidekick when olly murs left a couple of years ago, now sarah jane crawford will present the xtra factor as a solo host of the xfactor updates show, which shows usually on itv 2 after each episode of the x factor finishes.
