    Radio One's Nick Grimshaw and singer/presenter Rita Ora have signed as judges for the new series of The X Factor, as well as confirming that Cheryl Fernandez-Versini will return to the judging panel alongside show creator Simon Cowell, when the series returns this autumn.

    So Rita Ora jumps ship leaving BBC's The Voice, which she was good on.

    Cowell's face now looks too fudgeed up to even be a synth rip-off. He'll soon look exactly like Sharon Osbourne

    I am about as interested in this, I usually have it as a guilty pleasure, as I am in catching genital warts.

    Kinda begs the question why you're going out of your way to comment really doesn't it.

    First show was entertaining enough. I wish they would bring Cheryl back. The skinny gaunt lookalike is not the same.

    Nick Grimshaw using 'that was sick' -well cringe! (He's 31 btw, not 14...)

    I'm guessing with how emotional Simon was on the last act he was aware of his mother's passing? Very sad, losing a parent at any age...

    I have been a fan up to now. Perhaps I am getting old.

    The format has run its course there's no getting around it, it would happen to any show without a drastic change in the format after ten plus years of being on. It'll never return to its all encompassing ratings and popularity. I can see it being on for a couple more years before ITV pull the plug.
    Personally I don't mind it, just take it for what it is abit mindless light entertainment. I didn't see either show from the weekend, but caught up via catchup when I was doing some bits at home today and that's how I'll continue to watch.

    Was it ever an original format ... aren't all the Fuller or Cowell reality shows (BGT/Idol/Popstars etc) all pretty much the same format? Basically an update on New Faces / Opportunity Knocks.

    What got me was this huge new updated build up then straight into a poor act that I think was voted through.

    Saw about 5 minutes of the first show. Simon said something like "you don't know how good you are" to someone and that they made the song their own.... I almost threw up in my mouth.

    I don't understand how some acts get a helping hand with backing dancers, and the group of lads, who had a whole VT behind them. Surley, that takes organising with the show producers? Not exactly level playing field...

    That made up my mind. I thought it so lazy to say that and dashed my hopes of a BIG TWIST.

    Can't say it was great.
    Recorded and fast forwarded to skip padding.
    Two shows a weekend is too much IMO.
    The new "fresh" format is hardly that either- just 2 new judges.
    I will watch it but it is loosing its attraction VERY fast !
    Trawling through all the contestents can be a drag and hopefully it will pick up when they start the final selections.
