‘X Factor' Fans React To Rita Ora And Nick Grimshaw Confirmation - Are They The Right Choice For The Panel? (POLL)

‘X Factor’ fans have taken to Twitter to voice their opinions after the confirmation that Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora will be judges on this year’s series.

The pair, who are also close pals, were confirmed as the new recruits on Tuesday morning, after weeks of speculation.

It's official!

However, it seems not everyone is happy, and a number of Twitter users took to the social networking site to share their thoughts on the decision:

Not everyone was quite so negative though:

The confirmation isn’t exactly a total surprise, and the news came just hours after it was revealed that ‘The Voice’ bosses aren't too pleased with Rita, who’s reportedly signed a £1.5 million deal with their rival show.

The new panel will unite for the first round of auditions in Manchester, on 6 July.

It’s not just the panel which has undergone a shake-up this year, and presenter Dermot O’Leary has left the show, making way for Caroline Flack and Olly Murs, while it’s believed that audition stages will also be getting a makeover.
