Leona Lewis, 27, famously won X Factor in 2006 and is now a multi-platinum selling superstar. Grammy- nominated, her single Bleeding Love was No 1 in 30 countries. Her experience means she knows what it’s like for contestants and she was a Guest Judge for the X Factor in the city where she first auditioned – London.
What was it like to be a Guest Judge on The X Factor?
It was strange at first as I’d previously been on the other side of the panel but I really enjoyed seeing first hand the talent that makes up the show.
What were the highs/lows of the day?
The highs were seeing some incredible raw talent, especially the guy singer/songwriters and some of the female power houses we found.
Would you have liked to become a full time Judge?
I think one day it would be great to really mentor and work hands on with the talent.
What was it like working with the other Judges?
There was a great synergy on the panel. Gary is so respected and lovely, Tulisa is so talented and passionate and Louis has a great eye for potential.
Who was your favourite Judge?
I love Gary!
Do you think you saw anybody with The X Factor on the day?
For sure, the London audience were great and I can’t wait to see how the talent progresses.
The X Factor returns to ITV1 this Saturday. Are you excited? Are you looking forward to seeing Leona in her judging debut? Leave your comments below….
