SURPRISE! Did you guys miss me?

Hey there folks, I'm sure you know who I am but if you don't then you might remember me from such games as The Voice Factor and Battle Of The Seasons (both are returning soon). But here I have something else, now you may remember that Back To Basics was first created by our very own, Poth and that I took over as host for the Final show. Well after realizing that I have more time to do other things besides my Uni work, I've decided that I'm going to bring it back for a Second Series!

So here's how Back to Basics works. We've seen a lot of forum games on here that are different and unique, which is why on this game, we're just going to have the standard set-up of a game, just like the real show. Although there will be a few surprises that I'll have up my sleeve. For this game, I will need four judges who are willing to take the time and mentor when they receive their categories...I'll ask the some of the possible returning judges first if they would like to take part again. But if not then if you wish to join the panel, inbox me on why you wish to join and what can you bring to the judging panel.

The deadline for any or all possible replies will be on Thursday at 6pm where hopefully, I will announce the judging panel, followed by their categories and much more when we get to it...so get inboxing if you wish!

I'm unfortunately not able to do this as I've got a few things on DS on ATM as well as my job, hope it all goes well though!

There's still time to send me your forms before the deadline...which I'll do tonight actually.

Something tells me that you wish to take part?

Alright, I actually have more than enough applications to start announcing the judging panel. So after The X Factor: UK vs US show, I will announce who'll be on the panel. Followed by more information that is soon to follow. So see you later you lovely lot!

Alright ladies and gentleman, the deadline is now closed!

I have received 7 applications...it's a shame that only four places are available. So for those who won't be on the panel, don't be sad...because I'll keep the other 3 as Reserved judges in case one of the chosen four has to pull out. So here we go!

We have only one returning judge and three newcomers, so let's meet them!

Our first judge is the only judge returning from the First Series, he has been on a roll recently, coming Second in the last Series and also recently won The X Factor 20 by guiding MK1 to victory, ready to hopefully go for gold in this Series, it's none other than...

Our second judge is one of the newcomers, but he has PLENTY of experience and has also been on a roll. He's come second twice on The Mix Factor and also won Battle Of The Seasons with Joe Cox. Hoping to make an impact, it can only be...

Our second newcomer is very new to the judging world, but he's told me that he has what it takes to get his mentoring career off to the right path. He's a frequent viewer of a recent game I'm apart of, but now he's going to be mentoring...please welcome...

Cheers Steve. I only saw this thread today and honestly didn't imagine I would have been on the panel. But I am up for this 100%, and can't wait to get my acts sorted
