Dannii Minogue is the new judge for this, the fourth season of X Factor UK. There was also Brian Friedman, but he was dropped as a judge for being too American! I shit you not.
This video shows her on the X Factor Unseen show explaining how she came to be a judge for this year’s show.
Dannii has been ripped to pieces for her performance as a judge so far, with people criticizing her for just sitting there and not doing or saying anything of any merit.
Maybe she’ll do better in the later rounds, where she could mentor the eventual winner. Only time will tell.
