The fourth judge of X Factor is confirmed and she is none other than the Scary Spice as she signed a £ 1million X Factor deal to become the final judge and join Cheryl Cole on this year X Factor panel of judges. The former Spice Girls met with Simon Cowell two weeks ago to talk about the job and yesterday signed the contract which bounds her to become the final judge of the ITV talent show.
Though, she got a £1million contract, her contract is only second to that of fellow female judge Cheryl Cole, who signed in with the with a £1.5m contract. The news will be confirmed this coming Wednesday, and the two will joined the returning Louis Walsh and the TV mogul Simon Cowell next Monday in Manchester as they begin their search for a new singing star.
Mirror claimed that Mel B was the number one choice for Simon as he was really impressed when they met up and he likes her style and what she promised to bring to the show during their meeting. Like Simon, Cheryl also thinks that Mel B. will be a good panelist as she is fun to be with and will work well with the rest of the panel.
Last month the Mirror did reveal that Mel B was among the choices for the judging role. Mel B was a guest judge on The X Factor when she stood a couple of years ago and proves that she can handle it during that time. Cowell claimed that she can handle her own on the judging panel and can also bring out the in Cheryl and make her more feisty and opinionated.
The panel of judges is not that young and that could bring some problem, but Cowell isn’t exactly out to impress everyone. He knows that something is going to give in and he doesn’t want to be affected with it. This year, they would want to concentrate on the contestants more and not on the judges.
Mel has past experience working as one of the judges for America’s Got Talent and has just finished an Australian children’s version of The Voice. Louis Walsh is the only survivor for last year’s panel as Cowell want to reinvent the show and boost ratings that could compete with the likes of Strictly Come Dancing. During the last few years, the BBC rival has had bigger audiences than Cowell’s ITV show.
