Let The Rivalry Begin: The X-Factor Press Launch
Celebrity Party | The X-Factor Press Launch
That’s right guys, it is that time of year again – The X-Factor is BACK! The judges from last year will have their bottoms firmly placed in their seats, (apart from Kelly Rowland who has been replaced by Nicole Scherzinger). Thank God we don’t have to hear, ‘You Put It Down,’ EVER AGAIN. The judges arrived at the Corinthia Hotel in London yesterday to greet the press and to talk about the impending show.
Gary Barlow was absent at the press launch yesterday following the tragic passing of his daughter Poppy. Louis Walsh was there to speak on behalf of Gary and the Irish judge said they are all really excited about this years contestants as there are a few surprises for the audience – please say they are bringing back Wagner!
Nicole looked gorgeous in a white shift dress, which hugged her enviable curves beautifully. The former Pussycat Doll said she is looking forward to the challenge of being a judge and is so excited that she will no longer be a guest. The former US X-Factor judge literally smelled of roses and said she was bought some Vera Wang Princess and now sprays it everywhere. Awww, we hope Lewis treated you.
Tulisa rocked the room in a figure hugging bandage dress by Celeb Boutique, which showed off her enviable toned body. The N-Dubz star said after her success last year, she is determined to win again. Perhaps she will form a boy band this year? We hope they’re hot! The X-Factor champion has changed her make-up look since the last time we saw her. Tulisa said she has stopped wearing false lashes and is addicted to YSL Volume Effect Mascara as it has staying power throughout the day and night and it makes her lashes look far more dramatic.
Caroline Flack felt a bit lonely without side-kick Olly Murs – don’t worry girls, Olly will be back, he is just touring at the moment. This week, Flackers was the subject of a hate campaign in a One Direction fan magazine. The presenter has said she is deeply hurt by the remarks, but is grateful to all those who have supported her. Caz looked fab in one of her trademark playsuits (she does love getting her pins out). We do adore Caroline’s golden skin and the presenter said she couldn’t live without her fake tan. Fake Bake, here we come.
