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?
