This year it appears that everyone is falling out with everyone else on the X Factor. Contestants falling out with each other, judges falling out with each other and now we have contestants falling out with judges. Apparently contestant Janet Devlin and mentor Kelly Rowland aren't speaking at the moment.
Apparently Janet had become difficult to work with and the pair fell out over song choices and styling. Janet has recently revealed in interviews that she can be hard to work with. If she doesn't like the song choice or the outfit, she'll turn in down, there is no compromise. She says she has previously refused to sing songs that she's not comfortable with.
We are told that the mentors care about their acts, and I'm sure they do, but sources in the X Factor camp reveal that the judges are at each others throats in a bid to win the competition. With Louis Walsh now out of the game, the competition has heated up even more, surely.
A source close to Kelly Rowland has said that the judge has rubbished claims of a feud with Janet saying "This conversation was blown out of proportion in the papers and there is absolutely no truth in the fact they're not talking."
According to this source, Janet wasn't happy with an outfit choice but discussed it with Kelly and there was no fight.
However, with the final looming in the near future, I think it's to be expected that nerves will get the better of people. As I've already said, Louis Walsh is now out of the competition after his last act, Kitty Brucknell was evicted last night. With only three judges now competing the pressure is on. I'm expecting tempers to be frayed and rising pressure.
The end is in sight and all three judges want to win. It's their first year on the show and Gary Barlow, Tulisa and Kelly Rowland all have strong acts and they know it. All three judges know that their acts all have the potential to win and it's only natural that they're going to pull out all the stops in a bid to get the much coveted votes for their own act.
The X Factor contestants are feeling the heat also. Sources say that some contestants weren't happy at all about the decision to bring back a rejected contestant after Frankie's departure. The four returning hopefuls had arrived at the X Factor house to a very sour reaction.
The contestants, like the judges, know the end is in sight and all have their eyes set on the prize. The return of another contestant meant more competition for them.
The X Factor ends in December, I'm guessing by the time the final comes around, the pressure will be at boiling point.
