Revealing which category each judge will be mentoring, it seems Simon has certainly laid down the gauntlet for Gary.
Normally the charge of Louis Walsh, Gary has been tasked with producing a winner from the Over 25s category – a feat not accomplished since Steve Brookstein won the very first series in 2004! – while Louis will be over seeing the Bands.
Yes, another Jedward is a serious risk!
Tulisa meanwhile, will be looking after the Girls after winning last year’s series with Little Mix, while newbie Nicole will take on the Boys.
We can’t wait for all this to kick off!
