Calvin Harris Joins Nicole Scherzinger at The X Factor

Calvin Harris has been unveiled as Nicole Scherzinger’s guest judge at The X Factor’s judges houses.

The ‘Summer’ and ‘I Need Your Love’ hitmaker dropped the bombshell on Snapchat, in a video where they’re seen “chilling in the south of France”. He’ll need to help Nicole narrow down the Boys category from six to just three contenders.

Sources at The Sun recently described him as “one of the biggest artists in music”, declaring that Simon Cowell is after “A-listers” to assist the judges in their exotic locations. With a grand total of seven UK number 1s, it’s safe to say he fits that bill.

It’s not Calvin’s first appearance on the show – he was banned from the singing competition in 2009, after invading one of Jedward’s live performances. With a pineapple on his head.

You’ll need to wait a few weeks for this, though – The X Factor 2016 continues this weekend with more room auditions. Other rumoured judges’ houses guests include Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon and Take That frontman Robbie Williams.
