X Factor UK Headlines for 04/03/18

Saara Aalto’s debut album might be out this month! Louis Walsh says his X Factor contract is ‘watertight’. He also claims his hearing is 100% perfect.

Saara Aalto’s debut album: Has the release date been leaked?

Finnish music store Levykauppax.fi published a cover, release date and track list of Saara Aalto’s new album. According to them, the album is titled ‘Wild Wild Wonderland’ and will be released on April 27th. It features all three songs that Saara presented in Finnish Eurovision pre-selection. It makes sense for her to release the album before Eurovision in May as Eurovision Song Contest is watched by about 200 million people every year. Many artists release their albums before and after Eurovision. The listing for Saara’s album has since been taken down. Another Finnish website is still reporting about it, so check it out.

It’s no wonder that Tomlinson keeps tabs on the anniversary of that significant try-out, and he took to Twitter to look back on his initial X Factor audition and the support he received from his dearly departed mum.

AXE FACTOR Nicole Scherzinger is axed from the X Factor – with Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne to follow
Cheryl, Alesha Dixon and Kylie Minogue have been named as potential judges
NICOLE Scherzinger has been axed from The X Factor — and Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh are also unlikely to return.

Simon Cowell has been secretly plotting a massive overhaul of the ITV talent show as it enters its 15th year, The Sun can reveal.

Original judges Louis and Sharon, both now 65, have contracts to return this year. But show bosses are looking at terminating these to inject fresh blood. Pop heart-throb Craig David and One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson are in talks to become the new male judge.

Ex-judge Cheryl Tweedy, BGT panellist Alesha Dixon, Kylie Minogue and Mariah Carey are in contention to replace Nicole. An X Factor insider said: “Louis and Sharon are both contracted to return this year, but Simon and the producers have lost faith. They were both terrible on the panel last year. Louis has had a great run, but he’s advertising hearing aids for God’s sake. It’s beyond a joke.

“And Sharon couldn’t even remember some of her own contestants’ names.

“I have spoken to Sharon. She’s said they can only sack us if they pay us.
