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

Simon Cowell clearly didn't watch the Voice cos he definitely wouldn't have hired Rita Ora based on that. And as for Grimmers 😩— Jess (@jessibell55) June 16, 2015
Rita Ora is a dry, dull, incredibly SAFE option and I'm frustrated by it— Abi (@gonetodeadlock) June 16, 2015
So @RitaOra is the new x factor judge! Safe to say I won't be watching this year! She is unnecessarily annoying— NathanIMParr (@NathanIsaacParr) June 16, 2015
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.
