There has been a lot of excitement surrounding the new season of The X Factor, which will air later in the year, as there has been an almost complete overhaul of the judges on the show. While most of the excitement has surrounded the fact that Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole are returning for the new season, while Louis Walsh once again returns, there has been a lot of talk about who will get the final seat.
There have been many different theories about what will happen with the final judges seat for the new season of The X Factor, with some people suggesting that they could do away with it altogether, going back to the old setup of having just three judges. Meanwhile, others have suggested that they will get another male judge in, with Olly Murs and Robbie Williams being linked to the job.
However, the most likely outcome is that another female judge will be brought in to join the new look judging panel, with it looking like it has come down to a battle between two stars. Louis Walsh himself previously suggested that it will come down to either Alesha Dixon or Mel B, and it looks like the majority of The X Factor fans are calling for Alesha Dixon to land the final seat at the judges table.
With the new season of The X Factor just around the corner, the announcement of the final judges line up cannot be too far away but, from what we have heard so far, it looks like Alesha Dixon is just about going to edge out Mel B. Watch this space!
