WITH Guy Sebastian and Mel B pulling out, speculation has been rife as to who will sit on the X Factor judging panel.

Confidential can reveal Seven has all but signed on the dotted line with former LMFAO frontman, Redfoo.

The writing was on the wall when the network shamelessly plugged the wacky singer throughout their Australian Open coverage.

The hairy rapper, who dates tennis champ Victoria Azarenka, is said to have impressed Seven executives when he was here, with plenty of wooing off court.

Stefan Kendal Gordy, aka Redfoo, certainly has the DNA to pick a star.

He is the son of Motown founder Berry Gordy Jnr, who discovered worldwide acts such as the Supremes, Marvin Gaye as well as the Jackson Five.

Meanwhile, Dannii Minogue has firmed as the other seat on the judging panel next to Ronan Keating and Natalie Bassingthwaighte.

A sweetheart of network executives, the station was adamant to have Minogue remain at the "Seven family'' following Australia's Got Talent moving to Channel 9.

Having worked on The X Factor UK for four years, Minogue knows the format.

And with her work commitments in the UK as a judge on Britain and Ireland's Text Top Model soon to be finished,
Minogue would be free to start work on the reality singing series back in Australia.

Seven yesterday went to ground when called.

This is such a random choice

Guy Sebastian would be a great judge here and he could promote his music over here at the same time.

Shame Guy has left - he's category won 2 years on the trot, so he was clearly doing something right.

He's like a male version of Dannii and Nicole, in the way he cares for his acts a lot. Guy's a real sweetheart! Yeah and I wouldn't mind Guy being a judge on the UK version.

In other news, what? Such a random choice for a judge.

I think it is more like...

Dannii replaces Guy (Australian artist, caring mentor, knowledgeable to reality comp.)
RedFoo replaces Mel B (international act, performer)

The downside of losing Guy is not just the performances, but his post-season mentoring.

LOL. Me too. He's very different from Simon, Louis and Gary, but I think he could bring tons of wisdoms to the table. After all, his father IS Berry Gordy Jr.

I'm shocked that Oz XF averages only 1.5m viewers! That can't be right! It's a great show.

You do know that Australia's population is roughly 1/3 of the UK's, right? The most watched broadcast ever (a tennis match) had 4 million viewers, so 1.5 million is pretty good.
