It’s official, Britney Spears has quit X Factor! Reportedly bored with the judges position, she wants to focus on music and touring. Who will Simon Cowell choose to replace LA Reid and Britney? Will Demi Lovato return next year? Here’s the latest X Factor news, rumors, and updates.
It’s no secret, Britney Spears may be great on stage as an artist, but she’s not the best X Factor judge. Her lackluster performance and critique abilities, was an absolute yawn fest. Simon Cowell thought our Sagittarius girl would attract more viewers and instead he lost about 5 million. I guess Paula Abdul wasn’t so bad after all.
X Factor fans want to know who Simon will choose to be in the judges hot seat. Will he pick someone like Rihanna a Pisces or Alanis Morissette a Gemini?
Who will replace LA Reid? Will it be Sean “Diddy” Combs a Scorpio or a country superstar like Jake Owens or Dierks Bentley? Whoever he chooses, Simon has to get it right or there will be no X Factor, season 4.
For X Factor 3, Astrochicks thinks they need less cheese and over production. Let the artists choose their own music, bring back mentors, and add some humor to the mix. Forget Demi Lovato’s snarkiness. We think X Factor needs to bring more street cred to the table. They need an outspoken judge like Rihanna, Little Kim, or Diddy to the mix. For eye candy, Jake Owens will do just fine.
Astrologically speaking, Simon a Libra tries to hard to please everyone. He needs shake the format up a bit. On a positive note, we think that X Factor, season 2 winners and runner ups will be very successful. Astrochicks predicts that Tate Stevens, Emblem 3, and Fifth Harmony will all go platinum.
In 2013, Scorpio will be in Saturn, which means Simon Cowell may have to face the harsh reality that X Factor may be over. There are way too many talent reality shows on TV. If he wants to compete, he should move X Factor to the summer like America’s Got Talent. We predict more shake ups and possibly a new producer for the show. Stay tuned.
Is X Factor winner, Tate Stevens, on track to become the next Garth Brooks? Will Fifth Harmony and Emblem 3 be the next Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys? If Simon Cowell has his way, they will all be multimillion dollar platinum selling artists. The ratings may have been higher for X Factor season 1 but season 2 will be a cash cow for the producer. Here’s the latest X Factor rumors, news, and gossip for Fifth Harmony and Tate Stevens.
For Tate Stevens, he celebrated the holidays in style with his family in Missouri. Born under zodiac sign of Pisces, Tate has touched fans hearts with his country roots and dedication to his family.
Next month, Stevens will hit Nashville to begin working on his first album. LA Reid is lining up the best Nashville producers, who will make recommendations on the best song choices for Tate.
For Fifth Harmony, Simon Cowell is hoping they will be the next Spice Girls or Destiny’s Child. All between the ages of 15 to 19, they definitely have the X Factor.
An insider told Examiner.com, “Simon is determined to prove that he can find the next big girl group in America. He missed out on a chance to sign the Spice Girls and he’s regretted it ever since. Little Mix [2011 winner of 'The X Factor' U.K.] might not have crossover success in America, so he’s hoping Fifth Harmony can fill what he likes to call ‘the gap in the market’ for a superstar all-female pop group.” Astrochicks agrees!
Astrologically speaking, Astrochicks predicts there may be a change in the Fifth Harmony line up. Perhaps, a new girl will be added to the mix, although we think all five girls share a strong bond. Fate brought them together and they’re definitely a sisterhood. For most girl groups, there is one breakout star like Beyonce or Ginger Spice. Which Fifth Harmony girl would it be? If Astrochicks had to pick one lead singer, we would choose Camila Cabello, what a Cuban cutie.
For the holidays, Fifth Harmony celebrated the New Year with their family. Camila spent it Cuban style, Dynah stayed local in California with a beachy Christmas, Lauren hit Miami for another Cuban inspired holiday, Normani for a Big Texas Christmas, and Ally in San Antonio with the familia.
Fifth Harmony may not have won the $5 million dollars but they’ve won the X Factor’s fans hearts. Astrochicks predicts lots of blessing in 2013 from record deals to beauty contracts, even a Teen Choice Award They’re definitely superstars!
Who will win X Factor? On tonights finale, Tate Stevens and Carly Rose, are considered the front runners. Could the all girl group, Fifth Harmony, actually pull off the $5 million dollar contract? X Factor rumors, spoilers, and predictions straight ahead.
The rumor is X Factor could be cancelled after season 3. Simon Cowell, who expected X Factor to have bigger ratings then American Idol and The Voice, has been seriously disappointed. The singing competition focused on elaborate set design, it seems to be less about talent and more about fluff.
When it comes to X Factor predictions, Tate Stevens, who’s a 37 year old blue collar dad from Belton, Missouri is favored to win. Born under the zodiac sign of Pisces, he’s always been a dreamer. Tate Stevens as a Pisces, is not afraid to go against the tide but as a father, he has put his family first. Working hard to take care of his family, Tate always had a dream to be a country singer and here he is. The front runner to win the $5 million dollar recording contract.
For Carly Rose, X Factor wants her to be the next Mariah Carey, Celene Dion, or Christina Aguilera. A little girl with a really big voice, may not have as much marketability as Tate Stevens. Born under the zodiac sign of Aries, Carly Rose, is definitely a head strong girl. Incredibly independent, she’s very mature for a 13 year old girl. Singing songs that were written for 20 or 30 year olds. Does that musical style help or hurt her? How can a 13 year old girl sing about lost love when she’s never had a date?
Astrologically speaking, Astrochicks predicts that Tate Stevens will win X Factor and the $5 million dollar contract. From a cosmic perspective, Saturn in Scorpio, will trine his Sun in Pisces. Giving Tate the foundation to be a huge success in Nashville. He’s the guy next door, he could be your best friend, someone who’s a father, and struggled in life to take care of his family. Fans will love and identify with him. Also, he will give X Factor the credibility they desperately need.
For Carly Rose, our Astrology prediction is she will get a record deal but X Factor needs to develop her career. She reminds me of the American Idol singer who stars in Smash, Katharine McPhee, who’s had more success as an actress. I think Carly Rose needs to mature before she hits superstar status. Amazing singer, but we don’t think she can hit number one and kick Bruno Mars and singers like Adele out of the top spot.
For Fifth Harmony and Emblem 3, we think they will get a record deal and will have huge success internationally. Simon Cowell, needs to maintain his X Factor credibility and will do everything he can to make sure they are a success.
UPDATE – Tate Stevens won. LA Reid quit X Factor, who will replace him? Rumors of Sean “P Diddy” Combs. Could be interesting!
X Factor rumor alert! Has Simon Cowell lost his golden touch? With X Factor’s ratings tanking in the UK and the USA, he’s reportedly scrambling to reboot the reality show. Have fans grown tired of all these singing shows or are they just tired of Simon? Here’s the latest update!
The web is buzzing that Simon Cowell will replace the X Factor judging panel, again! Desperately, trying to find the right chemistry, he may bring Chris Brown and Rihanna on board. Should he bring Paula Abdul back for a third time? Better yet, should Simon remove himself from the judges chair to focus on the production of the show? X Factor fans want to know!
It’s reported, Simon Cowell has held a crisis meeting to save his beloved X Factor. Feeling the pressure, our charming Libra has lost his shine. Of course, nothing lasts forever but he wants to squeeze a couple more seasons out.
Critics have condemned the latest incarnation of The X Factor as boring, inauthentic, and straying from its mission to find people who love to sing, rather than those who seek fame. Basically, Simon Cowell needs to make the show more like the Voice. Enough of all the glam and focus on real talent.
No doubt, X Factor this year has found real talent with Tate Stevens, Carly Rose, Emblem 3, and Fifth Harmony. Astrochicks predicts, they will all get record deals and we think Tate could be the next Garth Brooks. Will they survive after 2013?
One fan wrote, “I think the last ever X-Factor should end Seinfeld style. That is put all the judges and opportunist celebs from the last ten years on trial and charge them with the grotesque desecration of music. I might even tune in.” Ha, great idea! That’s a show Astrochicks would definitely watch.
Will X Factor revamp the judges table again? After tonight’s semi-finals, L.A. Reid, has decided to go back to his day job as CEO of Epic Records. Of course, he may leave with Tate Stevens as the winner X Factor’s, season two. What about Britney Spears, will she leave also?
L.A. Reid says, “I have decided that I will not return to The X Factor next year,” tells Access Hollywood. “I have a company to run that I’ve kind of neglected.” Of his decision to leave the singing competition, he says, “It saddens me a little bit, but only a little bit.” Who will take his place?
Unfortunately, X Factor has struggled to find an audience, who would embrace the reality show. Simon Cowell, needs to pick someone like Sean “Puffy” Combs or Whiz Khalifa to bring some personality to the table. Otherwise, it’s just another cheese fest.
Astrologically speaking, Simon Cowell a Libra, has definitely lost some of his edge. The American audience have grown tired of all these singing competitions and look to the judges table to provide entertainment. Demi Lovato is sassy and has lots of personality, Simon can be funny as well. with Britney a Sagittarius, just way too boring.
Astrochicks predicts a total reboot for X Factor next season, less flash and more class. Stay tuned.
X Factor kicked off it’s second week of auditions, this time they decided to introduce Cheryl Cole as the former judge. She’s still a big fan favorite over Nicole Scherzinger. Also, Simon Cowell’s sarcastic humor was back in the windy city of Chicago, which definitely made the show much more enjoyable this week.
One act guaranteed to make the finals is Brock and McKenna, they are a country duo, that the audience and judges loved. Especially Simon Cowell, which was a show shocker. Mckenna was a cross between Carrie Underwood and Reese Witherspoon. The back story is Brock is in love with McKenna but she doesn’t know it. Expect a love story to unfold the season on X Factor.
Another artist to watch was Josh Krajcik, who reminded me of Joe Cocker. A burrito slinger from Ohio, sang “At Last” by Etta James. Simon says, “I’ve gotta say, Josh. I always thought after a few auditions over the years I wouldn’t be surprised again. And then you started singing and it just blew me away. You are honest. You didn’t come out here with any gimmicks. Good for you.”
X Factor got off to a slow start last week but tonight’s episode offered a tremendous amount of talent, lots of laughs, and Astrochicks still wishes they would have kept Cheryl Cole. She has a nice soft energy, born under the astrology sign of Cancer, how could you not love such a sweet girl.
