Let WHO entertain you on the X Factor
NEW X Factor judge Robbie Williams says he feels old – as young wannabes do not know who he is.
The singer, now 44, found fame with Take That in the 1990s and went on to have a string of massive solo hits including Angels and Let Me Entertain You.

But he has been shocked to find that young hopefuls turning up for The X Factor auditions are struggling to recognise him.

And it was also galling to hear one teenage girl singer at the London auditions reveal that her “inspiration” was the former X Factor band One Direction.

Disappointed Robbie told her: “Hi. My name is Robbie Williams. I used to be in a band called Take That. Your parents will know me.”

X-RATED X Factor bosses introduce ‘Golden X’ into its six chair challenge like Britain’s Got Talent’s ‘Golden Buzzer’
One person per group will be guaranteed a seat and head to judges’ houses, which was revealed at today’s first six chair challenge
X FACTOR’s brutal Six Chair Challenge always felt like a bit of a step too far when it came to building tension on the talent show.

The stage sees the contestants whittled down mercilessly to just six per category, and normally leads to heartbreak and tears.

But for one person per group things will get a little less stressful as bosses have introduced a Britain’s Got Talent style ‘Golden X’ button which sees them guarantee a seat and head to judges’ houses.

A show source said: “This year each of our judges has one Guaranteed Safe Seat to give away in this round.

“If the judge likes an act enough and they definitely want to see them at judges houses they’ll press this golden X and give that act a Safe Seat.

“This means the act cannot be swapped out of their chair and they’ll go straight through to judges houses.”
