Nick Grimshaw & Rita Ora join The X Factor judging panel

Drum roll please…. we can now reveal that Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora have signed as judges for the new series of The X Factor as well as confirming that Cheryl Fernandez-Versini will return to the judging panel alongside show creator Simon Cowell.

Popstar Rita Ora is no stranger to The X Factor having first appeared on the show in 2012 as a guest judge. Rita burst on to the music scene in 2012, scoring a No.1 single with her collaboration with DJ Fresh on ‘Hot Right Now’. She went on to have a No. 1 debut album which produced two further No.1 singles.
Speaking about joining the show, Rita Ora said: “I am excited to be coming back to The X Factor – I had a ball here in 2012. This is a journey I can’t wait to embark on to find some talented singers. Its the new generation taking over. Booooom”
As the host of BBC Radio 1’s Breakfast show since 2012, Nick is one of the most respected Radio DJs in the business. A massive champion of music, he will bring a new and fresh perspective to the panel in the search for the next big singing sensation.
A well-known fan of The X Factor, Nick Grimshaw said: “I love X Factor and have watched the series religiously since it started, so obviously I’m hugely excited to be joining the show. Music is my job and my passion and I’m really looking forward to seeing what talent we can find and nurture this year. I can’t wait for Judges Houses in Oldham!”
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini returns to the panel for her fifth series, after last year taking Lauren Platt all the way to the semi-finals. As the only British female to have five solo number 1 singles in the UK, Cheryl is one of the nation’s most successful female recording artists. As a member of Girls Aloud, Cheryl achieved 20 top ten singles, four number ones and five platinum albums as well as winning a BRIT award.
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, said “I haven’t been as excited about an X Factor season since I first became a judge. The addition of Rita and Grimmy along with some interesting changes we’ve made to the format has refocused us to do what we do best, finding talent and making stars. I cannot wait to get started!”
Simon Cowell, who last year mentored the winning act, Ben Haenow, as well as the runner up Fleur East, said: “It’s taken a while! But I am very happy to be able to confirm our line-up of judges for The X Factor this year. The combination of Nick, Cheryl and Rita is going to be a lot of fun! They all bring a lot of enthusiasm and passion for music to the show.”
“I have a feeling I am in for a bit of a rough time but sometimes you have to embrace the craziness and now, with luck, we hope to find a star.”
The X Factor returns to ITV in autumn this year and applications for the new series are open now. Whether you want to be the next One Direction, Little Mix, Olly Murs or Leona Lewis apply now!
Anyone can still apply by submitting a video audition. Video auditions can be sent in via https://application.xfactor.tv/ and more information can be found here.

Rita Ora reveals what’s on her Capital FM Summertime Ball rider

Songstress Rita Ora is set to take the stage at tomorrow’s Capital FM Summertime Ball (June 6) and she has now revealed what she has asked to be in her dressing room backstage.

Speaking to the radio station this afternoon, the ‘Poison’ beauty explained that she’s on a new healthy diet and she really wants a tennis set to be on her rider:

“Fresh coconuts with the straw in it, not the ones from the bottles, the fresh coconuts with the straw in it, the green ones. I want the seaweed crisps you can eat, I want some cashew nuts, and I want a tennis set! I’m on this new tennis/ healthy diet but I don’t play tennis.”

She went onto add that she will treat gig goers to a live rendition of her new single ‘Poison’ and confessed: “I can’t wait to hear it in an arena kind of vibe”.
