The X Factor judging panel has been confirmed!

 

After all the rumours we know now the final judging panel line-up for the next series of The X Factor and it's got us feeling... meh!

Simon Cowell is the only judge to remain from last year and will be joined by Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh!

Sound familiar?!

Nicole returns after he stint on the panel in 2012, Sharon and Louis return for a third period after being binned TWICE!

With Dermot O'Leary also returning as the presenter it looks like we're going 'Back to the Future' on the new series which is set to hit our screens in September!

Speaking about her return Sharon couldn't hide her excitement, “I’m overjoyed about going back to The X Factor, sitting with Lou, Lou, gorgeous Nicole and naughty Simon. But most of all, I can’t wait to meet baby Eric.”

Nicole is back too and she's already looking at winning the competition, “I can’t wait to be back in the UK and on the show with the best Judges sitting alongside me on the panel. I'm excited about discovering, mentoring and winning with an exciting new act this year. And having had winning contestants in the past, Simon knows I will do it.”

And good old Louis Walsh, you can't keep him away for too long... however, it wasn't a surprise to us at all when it was confirmed that he was returning. Louis told Elliot Holman on Total Access that he wanted to return last year!
