June 12, 2014 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-EllisNews vastly circulated about Melanie Brown becoming the fourth judge on the UK’s X-Factor and now all speculation has been confirmed. The former Spice Girl and TV personality is said to be thrilled about her upcoming project alongside fellow judges and of course, she is no stranger to telling the truth when it comes to voicing her opinion!
“I’ve always thought honesty is the best policy when being a judge and that’s what I’m going to bring more of this year,” said Mel B. “Whether it’s spotting an incredible singer, giving someone a reality check, or debating with Simon over who’s got it wrong! Now I can’t wait to get started and find some amazing talent.”
Mel B is no stranger to the X-Factor, as she has previously been a guest judge on the panel during the early audition stages in 2012, judged on the Australian version of the show and has also judged on America’s Got Talent. But now that her position is permanent for this UK series, her journey is set to be a lot different.
Closely standing by with her congratulations was Melanie C, Mel’s fellow girl group member from the Spice Girls. “I’m really pleased Mel B is going to be the new X-Factor judge,” she said. “She is, without a doubt, the best person for the job – they don’t call her Scary for nothing!”
Simon Cowell also added: “I thought she was fantastic as a guest judge a couple of years ago. She is feisty, opinionated and, I believe, a great mentor.”
Auditions are set to take place in Manchester on Monday June 16th and this will also be the first day of filming for this new series. Be prepared to see the results later on this year!
