New X Factor judge Gary Barlow is alleged to have said: “We don’t believe everyone standing in front of us has the potential to make it all the way in this competition. Some of you are going home now. I’m so sorry – you’re going home.”
Fellow new judge Kelly Rowland added : “While you were partying last night, we were looking at your audition tapes. We only want to work with the people who can go all the way.” The new series returns to ITV 1 this Saturday, which includes new judges Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos. They are joined by the only returning judge Louis Walsh. Dermot O’Leary returns as he main host.
