Spice Girl Melanie B will join Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh as the fourth judge for X-Factor 2014. This team of judges will be lively and fun which is exactly what the ailing show needs to recapture viewer interest. X-Factor suffered in the past several years from dull judges and mediocre talent. This year they plan to ramp up the excitement and Melanie B will help along with Cheryl Cole. Of course X-Factor has never been X-Factor without Simon Cowell.

Dermot O’Leary is also back as host.

Spice Girl Melanie B Joins X-Factor

The nation’s most talked about entertainment show today confirms its brand new judging panel with Spice Girl Melanie B becoming the fourth and final judge.

As part of the biggest selling female group of all time and the cultural phenomenon, which was The Spice Girls, Mel B has notched up a stunning 80 million record sales worldwide, including nine UK No.1s. She also has five prestigious BRIT Awards to her name.
Mel’s signing comes after she appeared as a guest judge on The X Factor in 2012, where she lived up to her scary nickname with her straight talking approach.
Talking about joining the panel Mel B says: “I’m so excited to be joining The X Factor – I loved being a guest judge back in 2012. I’ve always thought honesty is the best policy when being a judge and that’s what I’m going to bring more of this year – whether it’s spotting an incredible singer, giving someone a reality check or debating with Simon over who’s got it wrong!  Now I can’t wait to get started and find some amazing talent.”
The X Factor creator, Simon Cowell, says:  “I am thrilled that Mel B has agreed to be a judge on The X Factor this year. I thought she was fantastic as a guest judge a couple of years ago. She is feisty, opinionated and, I believe, will be a great mentor.”
Mel B will join renowned music manager Louis Walsh, who returns for another series. As previously announced, they are joining Simon and pop princess Cheryl Cole, who both make a celebrated return to the show for the first time since 2010.
The judges will be joined by award-winning broadcaster and presenter Dermot O’Leary, who is back to preside over the talent, tears and drama, while providing support to the aspiring stars.
Louis Walsh says, “It should be a fun year this year with both Simon and Cheryl returning and I think Mel will keep us all on our toes, she is Scary Spice after all.”
Dermot O’Leary says, “Mel was great as a guest judge a couple of years ago and she certainly doesn’t mince her words. With Mel on the panel, along with Simon, Cheryl and Louis, I’ll have my hands full – we’re going to be in for an exciting year.”
