The X Factor – Only One Judge Confirmed, And Kyle Is Out

Kyle Sandiland’s has surprised no one with his announcement on radio this morning saying  he won’t be a judge on Season 2 of The X Factor.

In fact the Daily Telegraph says only Guy Sebastian has confirmed he will be on the show this year. This is good news for the show as I thought Guy was the standout judge and mentor last year. Hopefully he will be able to take over Kyle’s much larger dressing room…

It is still unclear whether Ronan Keating and Natalie Imbruglia will be returning. Ronan is meant to be filming a movie this year in Australia, and The X Factor would be something he would do as well whilst he is here. I suspect it is all coming down to money, as they won’t be splashing it around as much this year.

Personally I don’t think it would be a loss if Natalie Imbruglia didn’t return. She wasn’t bad, but she wasn’t great. I would like to see someone a bit more alternate in the role. What about Clare Bowditch, Julie Zemario, or even Chrissie Amphlett. Ok just just throwing it out there for discussion.

Also who should replace Kyle? Hopefully not Brian McFadden, even though he was a much better mentor than Kyle the guy is just a tool. Or they could even replace Kyle with another female judge. Now that would be radical. Or what about a music manager or record industry guy?

Any thoughts on who you would like to see on the show?

Mark Holden was great in my opinion but I doubt he would consider returning. Natalie Garonzi would also make a fantastic host – she was excellent last season.

I hope they dont just put It Takes Two judges on!

Replace the three judges with a music teacher, a psychiatrist and a vocational guidance expert.

I say bring Dicko back!!! He has the record exec experience, is entertaining, calls a spade a spade, but gives good advice too…

To BDD: I can see the comments now – you can’t sing, you’re a nutcase, and don’t, please don’t, give up your day job.

[…] In one of those I hope this rumour isn’t true categories, the Daily Telegraph is saying Delta Goodrem might be one of the judges on The X Factor this year. Kyle Sandilands has announced he won’t  be returning to the show. (see previous blog post here) […]

two boy judges
two girls judges
all successful artists – they would be great mentors to their charges
