‘X Factor’ Releases Trailer Tease-Fans Get First Look at a Brand New Panel of Judges
X Factor released a trailer mash up of auditions for Season 15, that is set to premiere on Sep. 1 at 8pm on ITV. Brand new judges Robbie Williams, Ayda Field, and Louis Tomlinson will join long standing judge Simon Cowell to find the UK’s next superstar.
In the 30-second clip, we get a glimpse of the exciting events to come this season. William’s playfully steals Cowell’s famed line, “I didn’t like it…I LOVED it!” To which Cowell hastily yells, “THAT’S MY LINE!”
The trailer also shows a combination of the judges reactions which include shock, appreciation, and even some dismay.
It’s been reported that Cowell has enlisted the help of Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams, to determine who deserves a spot in the Judges’ Houses. The Judges’ Houses locations have been unveiled- Cowell, Williams, and Field will bring their contestants to Los Angeles, while Tomlinson will take his crew to Barcelona, Spain.
Fans are so excited they can hardly contain themselves, and most are renaming the show LouisFactor. Literally, if you scroll through the X Factor twitter comments, almost all of them are about Tomlinson. It looks like the judges panel is exactly what fans have been hoping for.
However, some fans are unsure of what Field (who is also the wife of William’s) will bring to the table. Field has no prior music experience, so it’ll be interesting to see what spin she adds to the panel. One could argue,that as a former actress on the American soap Days of Our Lives, and panelist of Loose Women-that Field understands what it means to be a performer. Fans just don’t seem to agree because Field has zero ties to the music industry.
WTF?! Ayda has not built up a massive following on @loosewomen and has enough days to justify cross promotion. Robbie is a safe pair of hands but he’s 2008 not 2018. I liked 1D boys or Craig David more as options. Either way X Factor is a sinking ship with the Strictly battle https://t.co/yYuYovvtq3
