X Factor fans say they want Alesha Dixon to join the show permanently.
And most seem to want her to replace Nicole Scherzinger.
Current Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha stepped in for Nicole at auditions in Manchester on Sunday night.
Alesha was also seen stepping in for an ill Sharon Osbourne when try outs visited Edinburgh yesterday evening.
Following the latest episode, viewers definitely had a favourite.
“I just switched xfactor on and I can already tell that Alesha is better than Nicole on this show. Please keep her 😭😻 #xfactor,” one viewer wrote.
Another asked: “Is it bad that I prefer Alesha on the panel more than Nicole? 😂😆#XFactor”
And a third tweeted: “Petition to have Alesha replace Nicole as a permanent judge please #XFactor”
“Would rather have Alesha as a judge over Nicole #XFactor,” agreed a fourth.
Host Dermot O’Leary previously said of guest judge Alesha: “She’s good, so fun. I know her pretty well from her Mis-Teeq days – I was a big fan and went to all their concerts! I’ve interviewed her a few times but I’ve never really worked with her properly before in a judging context.
“She did Louis’ judges houses last year and was really good, super opinionated.”
Dermot added: “Poor Nicole came back to, ‘Oh Alesha was very good!’. They were still talking about her just two days ago!
“Nicole knows she’s a great judge though so they can’t wind her up, she’s like, ‘Yeah, whatever!’.”
Meanwhile, Simon Cowell revealed that Alesha had originally been due to join The X Factor before appearing on Britain’s got Talent.
He said “She was amazing. She was going to be on the show in the first place before BGT.
“She was brilliant; I have to tell you, seamless. I would hire her on my record label, she’s that good.”
The X Factor continues Saturday and Sunday night with more auditions.
