X Factor News 2010
Young mum Chloe Maffia auditoned for X Factor in manchester, she sang wishing on a star and although her audition went badly the judges gave her another chance.
Other auditionees were angry that she got through, but the judges believed she had street cred. Chloe has previously been on tv programme Snog, Marry Avoid, as shes known in her area of Wakefield for being a over the top Chav,.
Chloe herself says "Im a Chav at heart." and admits to dressing herself and little girl Destiny in matching Burberry.
Sam Grierson who auditioned on X factor last week, with girl band Dice, has now been moved by the judges into Girl Band Husstle. Sam is a former Miss Middlesborough and won Nuts babe 2008.
Sam was linked to Jack Tweed just a couple of months after Jade Goody passed away. she was also in a relationship with A1 Boyband member Ben Adams, who very publicly dumped her just months before she auditioned for the X Factor.
Meanwhile Simon Cowell has said he wants young people to tell him what music they should be making for people of their age, and he has banned certain songs this year as he is fed up of hearing them hundreds of times a day.
Some of the banned songs include Paolo New shoes, and Last Requests, Kings of Leon Sex on Fire, Jason Mraz's I'm Yours, Eva Cassidy Songbird, and Snow Patrols Chasing Cars.
This year the Judges have returned to Dublin, for the first time in a few years.
The overs group have gone from over 25s to over 28s. There will also be no sob stories this year, Simon says he likes it when people walk in and are totally honest about why they want to win, he says
"If you are entering because you want to be rich and famous that's great, just don't pretend your doing it for your dead dog."
Louis Walsh says to look out for a singer named Wagner, and a woman who reminds him of Sinitta. Speaking of which, Sinitta will not be appearing on the show this year at Simons house as she has done every other year.
It might have something to do with the fact they fell out in July, after Sinitta took it upon herself to launch a website for people interesting in auditioning for x factor. She said she would go through the videos they uploaded of themselves singing, and gave the impression that the 12 she selected would have a guaranteed pass to the x Factor, needless to say Simon was very angry with her.
With Danni Minogue being on maternity leave and Cheryl Cole being hospitalised with Malaria, there was a few guest judges appearing on The X Factor. The judges were ex spice girl Geri Halliwell, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, Aussie singer Natalie Imbruglia, and female singers Katy Perry and Pixie Lott.
Nicole was the favourite guest judge, Dermott O Leary said she fitted in perfect and was so funny as well, while Simon and Louis were smitten with her and Louis constantly followed her around. Someone who wasn't happy about her arrival was Cheryl Cole, who was reported to have sent Simon a text message from her hospital bed which read 'WHAT DID YOU GET HER FOR?.'
A few years back while in a interview Cheryl said Nicole had nothing going for her. she was also said to be seething when Nicole turned up to every audition wearing a dress from Victoria Beckham's collection, after Cheryl had already asked Victoria for some dresses for her to wear on the show. Nicole also was very close to Cheryls new fella Dereck Hough, after they paired up on the American version of strictly come dancing. So kitten heels at the ready ladies??
Cheyrl Cole is rejoining for the Judges house section of the show, and is tipped to be mentoring the groups. Simon has created two groups from the auditions as a group has never won the show before, they took soloists Rebecca Creighton, Sophia Wardman, Geneva Lane and Esther Cambell and formed a girl band.
They also took soloists Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Zany Malik and Niall Horan and formed a boy band.
Over on Xtra Factor former Blue Peter Presenter Konnie Hug, has replaced Holly Willoughby as the presenter. Simon Cowell originaly wanted Christine Bleakly but 34yr old Konnie got the contract and promises to add her own style to the show.
