X Factor 2011 judges

Footage of the new X Factor 2011 judges in aciton has leaked online, showing a tiny snapshot of the sort of antics we can expect on this year's show. The short teaser, which features new judges Kelly Rowland, Tulisa Contostavlos and Gary Barlow, highlights a few of this year's amazing and wacky auditionees.

The three new judges will joining the show's only returning panelist, Louis Walsh on the panel for the new series, which is again hosted by Dermot O'Leary.

Louis said: "Gary's going to surprise so many people with how little nonsense he takes. You have to remember, this guy started singing in bingo halls and made it to be one of the bggest popstars on the planet, so he knows al about hard work. He can't be bluffed or fooled by anyone."


Kelly added: "I just want to be honest with people, give them constructive criticism, and help them."

Meanwhile Tulisa commented: "I’m so excited to be the joining The X Factor and want to bring something fresh and new to the panel.

“I’m not going to be afraid to speak my mind and mix things up a little. I am hoping to find some hot new talent and mentor a winning category. It is also going to be great to get to know and work alongside the other Judges.”

She added: “Let the fireworks begin!”

X Factor boss Simon Cowell said: “These four are totally up for it, each of them bring a different attitude. They have had a ton of hits between them and they are all committed to finding a star.

“I have a feeling Louis and Tulisa will have slightly different points of view as to what the next star should look and sound like.”

The X Factor 2011 is set to start on August 20 on ITV1 and this clip seems to show there's been no let up on the talent (and, in some cases, the lack of it) on this year's series!
