In case you needed any further proof that Simon Cowell will do whatever it takes to keep The X Factor UK alive, here it is. Simon has now invited two of his ex-girlfriends to join a round of auditions. You read that right! In the biggest Judges’ Houses Auditions ever, Simon’s Malibu house will be filled with 50 guests. Among top singers, songwriters, and producers, his exes Sinitta and Terri Seymour will also have a seat at a table.
To make it even more awkward, Simon’s long term partner and baby mama, Lauren Silverman, will be at the same table! Other guests invited to the Judges’ Houses Auditions include former fellow American Idol talent, Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul, and Ryan Seacrest. Simon also had Adam Lambert, Leona Lewis, and Babyface present to give input.
One thing is for sure! These X Factor UK hopefuls will definitely be in good hands for the Judges’ Houses Auditions. They’re dealing with a house filled with 50 people who know what it takes to become a star! Plus two of Simon’s ex-girlfriends. To be honest, this season of The X Factor UK really has it all.
Now before we get ahead of ourselves, let me just say what we’re all thinking. I know Simon cares a lot about the show, but at what cost? After completely overhauling the judging panel and throwing tons of money at this season, his attempts to revive the show continue. The X Factor UK has been slowly declining in viewership over the past few years, while Strictly Come Dancing has become increasingly more popular and earned the top spot. But will this be enough to change the momentum? All I’m saying is, if Louis Tomlinson can’t do it, no one can. And by the early ratings this season, it’s looking like no one can.
But Simon sure knows how to make good television! It should be entertaining to see all these people in one room, to say the least. The X Factor UK‘s Judges’ Houses Auditions will air next month.
