Now the judges are confirmed, how would you allocate the catergories?

I'd chose-

Louis with the 16-24 Boys
Sharon Osbourne with the 25 & Overs
Nicole Scherzinger with the 16-24 Girls
Gary Barlow with the Groups

There's no way they'll give Sharon the overs, she'll be given the boys or the girls - whichever are strongest. She'll be the winning mentor too..

The X Factor UK

GROUPS: Nicole Scherzinger - I think Nicole would work well with groups because she knows how it feels to be in a group. I think she'll understand them well enough for them to actually win again.

GIRLS: Gary Barlow - Gary for the boys! I'd love to see how he would bring his aesthetics to the girls.

BOYS: Sharon Osbourne - Sharon would love his boys. And there's no need for a boy to win again since James won last year. So Sharon's chill and effortless mentoring would pretty much work in this category.

OVERS: Louis Walsh - I think Louis needs to mentor the overs because he's dated and this would perfectly fit the overs category.



The X Factor USA

GROUPS: Kelly Rowland - Likewise with Nicole, Kelly knows how to be in a group and how the American market sees and wants from girl, boy and mixed groups.

TEENS: Demi Lovato - This would be a perfect match. Demi started out as a Disney teen star and she would know what's essential for these teens to win.

YOUNG ADULTS: Simon Cowell - What this show needs is a winner from this category. These acts would cater to both the young and old generations that would give him/her a bigger chance to be successful.

OVERS: Paulina Rubio - Paulina is not too young herself. This would fit her perfectly AND I would love to see Paulina's feisty attitude as she defends her overs.

*But if ever TXF USA Changes the categories back to the Boys/Girls thing, I'd love to see Demi handle the boys and Simon to handle the girls.

I really just want Louis to get something other than the Groups or Overs.

If it was down to me:

UK

Sharon - Groups
Louis- Boys
Gary- Girls
Nicole - overs

US

Demi - Overs
Simon - Teens
Paulina - Groups
Kelly - Young Adults

That way, I feel all 8 judges are being challenged, and kinda stepping out of their comfort zone

X Factor UK

Gary - Groups
Sharon - Boys
Nicole - Over 25's
Louis - Girls

X Factor USA

Simon - Over 25's
Kelly - Groups
Demi - Teens
Paulina - Young Adults

If they go back to Girls/Boys I would give Girls to Demi and Boys to Paulina.

X Factor Australia

Ronan - Girls
Natalie - Boys
Dannii - Groups
Redfoo - Over 25's

Why?

Gary - Groups - Take That! Simple as! I am surprised he hasn't been given them before.
Sharon - Boys - She done dreadful with the Girls on her last year, and bar that year she always got to the final with a boy.
Nicole - Over 25's - When she had them in America she kicked ass! So yeah.
Louis - Girls - I think he needs to get away from the Groups/Overs circle he is in, and the Girls will work well for him I hope, maybe give him a chance of winning

Simon - Over 25's - He always seemed to do well with Overs, and they do well in America so I put 2 and 2 together.
Kelly - Groups - Destinys Child! That is all!
Demi - Teens - I think she would work so well with them, and really bring out their true colours as she isn't much older, she may act like their big sister.
Paulina - Young Adults - Never heard of Paulina before but I think Young Adults would do well in her hands.

Ronan - Girls - He has only ever had Overs and Groups (twice), he deserves something different, and I think the Girls would have a shot of winning with him.
Natalie - Boys - She was pretty rubbish with the Girls, and the Boys seems pretty easy to mentor so maybe she will do well.
Dannii - Groups - I chose Groups for Dannii because then she will have mentored every category AND she is IMO a great mentor so her + the groups would do well.
Redfoo - Over 25's - He would do well with the Overs as he may apply that wacky humour he has into their performances yet making them stand out and do well.

1) Remember S6 when Simon got the Overs to 6th (Jamie), 4th (Danyl) and 2nd (Olly)? He has done extremely well with the overs in the past.

2) Nicole should get the girls! She's never had the girls before and I want her to get a category she's never got before. And she's a proper female opera vocalist and so she can mentor them better than others at what they do. I'm thinking if Ella and Jade had had Nicole, they would have been given more appropriate songs and better vocal guidance (remember that awful key Ella was singing Bring Me To Life in?)!

3) Gary should get the Groups over Nicole because TT was more of a band than the PCDs were, meaning I think Gary would be better than Nicole at giving group advice.

So I want something like this:

UK:
Gary - Groups (definitely)
Nicole - Girls (she would be the perfect coach for them)
Sharon - Boys (she's done amazingly with the boys)
Louis - Overs (process of elimination and he's dated like someone else said so he would be the perfect match )

US:
Simon - Overs (for the aforementioned)
Demi - Teens (teen Disney star = goldmine mentoring to the teens category)
Kelly - Young Adults (would be interesting because this category has not done well at all, and most who were in this category last year were incredibly pitchy - Kelly can hopefully remedy/find better singers in this category)
Paulina - Groups (again would be interesting, Kelly seems totally suited to the groups, but because I feel the US Groups haven't impressed me at all so far, I think Paulina's fiery personality would be better suited.

I think it will be very interesting to see how she can do.. and as a judge she should be fully qualified to mentor different kind of singers not just her 'comfort zone'

X Factor UK

Nicole - Girls. She'll get them as a reward for last year. Both years she's done the shows she's wanted them so I think the producers will finally let her have them.
Gary - Groups
Louis - Boys. With Sharon on the panel now rather than a younger judge they'll finally give Louis a bone and give him the catagory he's always wanted.
Sharon - Over 25's

X Factor USA

I thought there had been spoilers saying it was going back to Girls/Boys catagories so I'll go by that.

Demi - Groups
Paulina - Girls
Kelly - Boys. Apparently theyre going after alot of Hip Hop/RnB contestants this year and I can see the boys catagory being where they show up the most so I think they'll give Kelly the boys if thats the case.
Simon - Over 25s. Good history with the Overs plus I think the producers would want to give the ladies the "better" catagories. On a side note, Panda's auditioning again this year and it would be good to see Simon mentoring her if she got through!

X Factor Australia

Dannii - Girls
Ronan - Boys
Natalie - Groups
RedFoo - Over 25s

Although I think the Australian catagories could really go any way.
