The insider explained, “It’s a possibility that Alesha will be asked to be an X Factor
judge if her stint on Britain’s Got Talent
is successful. Simon originally wanted Alesha instead of Kelly to join the judging panel last year, but she backed out and decided to stay loyal to Strictly
and the BBC.”
They added, “In a way, Alesha’s better suited to The X Factor because she is in touch with popular music and has had hit singles, as a solo artist and a member of her old band Mis-Teeq.” However, it appears that Kelly Rowland is still keen on returning for a second season on The X Factor.
Kelly has been quoted as saying, “I would like to do it but it is up to Simon Cowell.” It seems likely that Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh will return next season and it looks like Simon Cowell has a decision to make regarding the final seat at the judges table.
Who would you rather see as an X Factor judge? Kelly Rowland again or Alesha Dixon?
