It’s that time of the year again …
X Factor UK season 9 starts tomorrow. Dermot O’Leary will once again return as the host. Nicole Scherzinger is joining Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh on the judging panel. Caroline Flack and Olly Murs are returning as the Xtra Factor hosts.
Guess what? Louis Walsh might join TWITTER! At least according to the promo video below. Let’s just say Louis is still trying to figure things out.
And the Xtra Factor promo features Olly and Caroline. Don’t miss Olly’s creepy impersonation of Justin Bieber!
Dermot O’Leary presents his TOP 5 moments of X Factor.
All other season 9 promos feature X Factor’s most successful lot: Leona Lewis, Alexandra Burke, JLS, Olly Murs, One Direction and Little Mix.
