X Factor UK Headlines for 07/06/14

Who is releasing new music by the end of 2014? X Factor judges go to war in TV ratings push! Jedward rescued by coastguards after nearly drowning at beach.

Who is releasing new music by the end of 2014?
Ella Henderson‘s debut album is coming on September 22 and she filmed music video for her second single this past week.

Somebody else filmed a music video in the last week of June: Amelia Lily (Season 8 3rd place). According to Ultimate music, she left Xenomania/SONY MUSIC and is now signed to WARNER MUSIC. Reportedly her new single is titled “California”.

Little Mix cancelled the US leg of their “Salute” tour. The official reason for the cancellation is: 3rd album. Not surprisingly, SYCO wants a new album before Christmas. The girls talked about the third album a few weeks ago and I got the impression that 3rd album this year wasn’t very likely due to their busy schedule. I’m relived to hear the girls now have lots of time.

One Direction‘s 4th album is coming before Christmas. Obviously.

Olly Murs also has his 4th album ready for November release. Read more: Daily Star

Marvin Humes of JLS is planning to release two singles this year and a solo album early next year. The first of the two singles is apparently coming VERY soon. Read more: Daily Star

    Strange, if Cheryl Cole thought Simon was right to fire her why did she sue for the rest of her money seems unfair. Also I would catch glimpses where people would call Simon a jerk and such for firing Cheryl and it seems he was right, Simon must be going SEE.

    Glad she’s doing better mentally though.

    I wonder after the success of Ella Henderson… they will take the same approach with Tamera… take their time to record an album… also put some distance between her and the poor season she was on?
