X Factor 2013 judges: Sharon Osbourne could be back (and Tulisa, too!)


Sharon Osbourne is still wanted by Simon Cowell for The X Factor 2013 this year.

Despite reports suggesting Sharon will soon be joining Australia's Got Talent, X Factor boss Simon is still keen to get her back on the UK show.

Sharon quit the series in 2008 following her rows with then new judge Dannii Minogue, but with Dannii now gone Sharon could be back.

The Daily Mail reports that Sharon could also potentially join the US show, which is also in need of some new judges this year.

"Simon hasn’t made his mind up. Sharon was about to sign up as a judge on Australia’s Got Talent but that’s now been put on hold so she can remain available for The X Factor if needed," a source told the newspaper.

Meanwhile, the newspaper claims that Tulisa is completely out of the picture yet either.

X Factor boss Richard Holloway apparently told her during their meeting this week: "It’s all still to play for."

A source added: "She’s realistic that she might not be back but Richard was very positive about her and said no final decisions had been made."

Another insider teased: "There’s going to be an evolution, but not a revolution."


Other names linked to the show have included Cheryl Cole, Mel B and Robbie Williams.

Although Robbie has seemingly ruled himself out of the series this year, claiming he's too busy and announcing plans to have another baby.
