The X Factor 2018

Wow, and also from that article:

"Cowell described this overhaul to The X Factor as the first phase of a "a four-year plan", teasing that the format would change again in 2020."

X Factor's going to return like Jesus and we're all just going to have to deal with it.
If anyone else is watching America’s Got Talent: The Champions then you’ll probably agree with me that this could really be amazing.

What we should get is Leona, Alexandra, Fleur, Cher Lloyd, Diana Vickers competing against some easy losers (all the contestants from Sam Bailey onwards).

It should be rigged to make sure the best of the best make the final (on AGT the golden buzzer ensured Susan Boyle made the final but even the audience vote seems a bit dodgy to me).

But this is X-Factor...
If they do make it worldwide I'd be interested to see who from other X Factor do it.

I'd guess Samantha Jade is a given as she's still signed to Sony.
I'm just hoping AllStars has an AllStars Judging Panel - althought it looks unlikely from what I've been reading... I just don't want to see Robbie, Ayda and Lewis

Bring back, Dannii , Cheryl and ummm…. Nicki Chapman (Pop Idol)
Yeah these ideas are definitely more appealing than another normal series, however, not if its a judging panel of Simon/Louis/Robbie/Ayda.

Also, if they are doing an all stars BGT from worldwide series... isn't that basically what just happened in America?
Yeah but with AGT Champions the Majority of them have been American, with the odd international contestant in my opinion.. so I guess in the UK it would be majority British, with the odd international.
I guess we have to remember that the general public (Sandra and Bill) won't know squat about the American champions so they'll probably just use the same acts over here.
I'd be all for an XFactor champions series with Leona, Alexandra, Same Difference, The Vickers, Leon Jackson, Ruth Lorenzo to name but a few.
My dream all-stars

Leona Lewis
Alexandra Burke
Shayne Ward
Sam Bailey
Stacey Solomon
Saara Alto
Lucie Jones
Fleur East
Austin Drage
Honey G
Ella Henderson
Amelia Lily
Sean Miley Moore
Same Difference

I wouldn’t include those that are still doing well on the charts like Olly, Little Mix, James, 1D lot etc.

My all star panel would be Loui, Dannii, Nicole and Simon
