Looks like it's really happening guys. Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw have been confirmed as judges for X Factor alongside Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.
Unfortunately, Louis Walsh and Mel B are OUT! Looks like Simon's offer of a £1.5 million contract for Rita was too hard to turn down.
According to MailOnline, a source revealed; "Grimmy was the one that finally convinced Rita to join the show. Simon was also very persuasive and reminded her it was The X Factor which first made Rita a TV star.
"It's never been about money for Rita. She loved her time on The Voice but her dairy for early 2016 meant she wouldn't be able to commit to The Voice for a second series.
"The three judges [Rita, Nick and Cheryl] met for a get together at the Charlotte Street Hotel yesterday evening and they got on like a house on fire and are all excited about the new series of the show."
Here's what the two stars had to say about their new gig...
Rita: "I am excited to be coming back to The X Factor - I had a ball there in 2012. This is a journey I can't wait to embark on to find some talented singers. Its the new generation taking over."
Nick: "I love X Factor and have watched the series religiously since it started, so obviously I'm hugely excited to be joining the show."
