X Factor judge Pixie Lott
Pixie Lott is set to join Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh as a guest judge for 'X Factor' auditions in Birmingham next week.
Pixie Lott is set to be the second 'X Factor' guest judge.
The 19-year-old pop star wowed judge Simon Cowell when she performed on his other reality show 'Britain's Got Talent' last weekend, and he has promptly invited her to join him, Louis Walsh and Cheryl Cole during Monday (14.06.10)'s audition in Birmingham.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Pixie may be young but she's not afraid to speak her mind. She's only been in the charts for just over a year but she already sounds like a pro.
"And unlike a lot of pop acts these days, she's happy singing live so is well-qualified to judge the wannabes.
"Simon was really blown away by her performance last week on 'BGT' and his mind was made up."
The pretty blonde-haired starlet is now expected to replace usual judge Dannii Minogue next week, while she the Australian mentor is on maternity leave.
Pixie will be the second pop star to guest judge the new series of the show so far - after former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell joined the panel for auditions in Glasgow this week.
Lily Allen, Charlotte Church, Robbie Williams and a member of boy band Westlife are all expected to help out as thousands of hopeful pop stars audition for the singing show over the next few weeks.
