X FACTOR UK – CATEGORIES ASSIGNED TO JUDGES! GARY NOT HAPPY!
The Sun is reporting that Simon Cowell has told each UK judge which category they are mentoring in this years UK X Factor!
Gary has been given the tricky task of the ‘Overs’ category, normally seen as a bit of a ‘joke’ category perhaps this will be the year that it is taken more seriously without the joke acts.
Walsh picks up the group category, something he should be good at having managed Boyzone and Westlife.
Tulisa has got the girls and Nicole is left with the boys category.
Louis Walsh has got the notoriously difficult Groups category, Tulisa Contostavlos has the Girls and new judge Nicole Scherzinger has got the Boys.
It looks like Barlow has his work cut out for him on the 2012 series… “Gary doesn’t like joke acts and the Overs category is often full of novelty acts.
“In the past, when Louis has mentored them, the public got used to jokey acts like Wagner Carrilho and Johnny Robinson.
“Gary is preparing himself for an uphill battle.”
It is also reported that Gary will fly to Mallorca to film his judges houses segment, he wants to stay near the UK as his wife Dawn is due to give birth soon.
Will this be the year that finally stalls the X Factor? They need a good year after last years lack of talented solo singers.
