X-Factor Musical Chairs Continues – Louis Walsh Confirmed For Tenth X-Factor Series

The Irish judge has been confirmed to return this season, but speculation is ongoing regarding the other hot seats

Simon Cowell has finally got his way again and convinced X-Factor bosses they need to keep Louis Walsh for the tenth series of X-Factor. However, the media mogul has had to concede Gary Barlow returning to his judging post in order for Walsh to remain.

Most of the judges from the last few seasons of X-Factor have been keeping very quiet about the plans for the next season and with ratings significantly down, the bosses had hoped to revamp the series in some ways.

That was until Cowell stepped in and pretty much insisted Walsh hold on to his position as judge.

That’s how we feel too, Louis.

Rumours that Tulisa has been axed from the show have been confirmed and then rubbished, particularly by the star who insists she will return. However, her name has not made it to the official list released by the show’s producers.

The latest rumour has been that previous judge Sharon Osbourne will return while Nicole Scherzinger is keeping pretty hush about the entire affair.

Sometimes picking the judging panel is almost more exciting than the actual show.
