Pixie has a whole Lott-a advice

Pixie Lott

What with Dannii Minogue expecting her baby, a whole host of celebrities are standing in as a guest judge for the Xfactor auditions, a role that worked well on American Idol after Paula Abdul left.

Ex-Spice girl Geri Halliwell, one time judge on Popstars: The Rivals; the show which catapulted Cheryl Cole and her fellow Girls Aloud bandmates to fame, is currently sitting in on the Glasgow auditions for the Xfactor but at 37 years of age, it seems that Simon Cowell also wants some young guns to dish out the advice and separate the talent from the bad.

Pixie Lott, who performed on Britain’s Got Talent last week, reportedly impressed Simon Cowell so much that he has apparently asked her to guest judge on show for the Birmingham auditions at the tender age of 19.

A source has told The Sun newspaper that although young “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.”

Is Pixie too young or does she know what she’s talking about?  Pixie, who was born Victoria Lott in Bromley, was signed to her record label at 15, had her debut single Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh) go straight to number one last June, and repeated her success with Boys and Girl which also hit the top slot last September.
