      That's what I'm thinking. However he is definitely known for music.... Vinnie Jones has also released albums. And Megan mckenna calls herself a singer. So it's not exactly all people new to music lol
      Love you like a love song!

          Hmm i read about the line up earlier whilst at work and i can't help but wonder if this might be engineered to boost (1) Max & Harvey and (2) Megan McKenna - purely because i'm sure both have previous released songs that did ok on iTunes.

          If they end up as the final two i will kick myself for not betting on this outcome. lol

            What a horrendous lineup

              Isn’t it slightly unfair to have trained musicians on there? Looking forward to the three hot rugby lads.

                I don't think it's that bad at all.

                I am looking forward to this. I've actually missed X factor on a Saturday night

                  Ugh they just need to cancel this tired mess. The lineup is woeful.

                    How is Kevin McHale not known for his singing? He was in a boyband, had a lead role in Glee and just released his first EP a few months ago.

                      I never understand why people call for something to be cancelled just because they don't personally like it. It still gets over 4 million viewers. That's millions who do still enjoy it. If you don't like it. Don't watch. The whole 'it's crap cancel it' seems very juvenile to me

                        As for All Stars, Paula Abdul will take Nicole's place on the panel.

                            Apparently so because Nicole can’t commit to it.

                              Over how many weeks will this be?

                              One half of Love Islanders are quite good.

                                Well, it was basically a judges house episode with a lower calibre of talent.

                                And essentially, because the lineup is a bit shit, it felt really flat IMO.

                                    I was quite impressed by the amount of industry people Simon has managed to get involved in this, although I guess most of their glory days were in the past - he even managed to dig Pete Waterman up

                                    It definitely feels the show has been created as a vehicle to push a certain few contestants towards a record deal - probably Max & Harvey.

                                    The Islanders were surprisingly vocally really competent but it made cringe... Eyal is so cheesy. Cole & Edwards were dire

                                    The Vixen is the new Alison Moyet I got goosebumps!

                                        Looks like it was only a rumour sadly.

                                          So far so good.
                                          I suppose if you are in a show like Glee it's difficult to be taken serious and Kevin's role in the show was a bit specialised. One might be excused to thinking he needed the wheelchair in real life! However he showed he could be taken for a real singer and not some actor singing.
                                          The Vixen voice was very unique. It had tones of Cher in it, but she was trying to sound like Mercury too much.

                                          Max and Harvey seemed to have increased the sales of Sucker, so overall one would get the impression that their performance hit the biggest with those who still buy records. Though since some sang songs that were already big hits, such as Sheeran's hits it's hard to tell if they went down well.

                                          Brendan Cole & Jeremy Edwards, if they had been on the none famous one and they were not known at all, I could see Simon saying that Brendan can go through, but Jeremy wasn't good enough.

                                          Most impressed with the Rugby players!
                                          Education for anyone aged 12 to 16 has made a mess of the world!

                                            The Sun claims to know the first 2 contestants on X Factor All Stars:

                                            "The Sun claims Dinah Jane from Fifth Harmony, who finished 3rd on "X Factor USA" in 2012 and Samantha Jade, who won "X Factor Australia" in 2012, will take part on the All Stars edition of "X Factor".

                                            "Fifth Harmony's Dinah Jane 'signs up for X Factor All Stars'

                                            Former Fifth Harmony singer Dinah Jane has reportedly signed up for The X Factor's All Star series.

                                            Dinah Jane rose to fame on The X Factor USA's second season in 2012.

                                            After originally auditioning as a solo artist, she formed girl group Fifth Harmony together with Ally Brooke, Camila Cabello, Normani Kordei and Lauren Jauregui.

                                            The five piece made the final where they finished in third place, going on to sign a record deal that saw them release three albums.

                                            In 2018, the group went on an indefinite hiatus to pursue solo projects.

                                            Now The Sun newspaper reports that Dinah has signed up to the upcoming UK All Stars version of The X Factor.

                                            An insider told the newspaper: “Dinah has a record deal but this is a great chance to let people see who she really is. She will be good competition.”

                                            The tabloid also claims that X Factor Australia winner Samantha Jade is also set to compete.

                                            Host Dermot O'Leary recently teased that the new spin-off would welcome back "a few of the winners, a few of the sort-of nearly winners and a few of the more eccentric people."

                                            As for what British acts we can expect to see, 2008 champion Alexandra Burke is also rumoured to be making a return together with Ray Quinn, who was runner up to Leona Lewis in 2006.

                                            Wagner, Honey G and Jedward have also been rumoured for a return.

                                            However a number of past contestants, such as Rylan Clark-Neal and James Arthur, have ruled themselves out of competing."

                                                  Does anyone remember when they did World idol? That must've been around 2004?

                                                  Kelly Clarkson and Will Young were the two big names in the competition, but in the running order they went and put iirc Norway's winner of Pop idol last in the running order...and he ended up winning it over the likes of Kelly and Will.

                                                  That was such a shambles.

                                                  I hope this doesn't end up going the same way and we end with the equivalent of Honey G winning the whole thing.

                                                    World Idol was an embarrassment, I mean they had Victoria Beckham miming as the interval act

                                                        Loved Victoria, she reminded me of Shan from last year.

                                                        I thought Ricki was pretty dull, gutted for The Vixen.

                                                          The Vixen is through. They saw the public backlash and decided to let her unit the live shows. While I wanted her to get through, I’m not a fan of fan-pandering.
