This year's X Factor judging panel is a weird mix of being brand new and familiar all at the same time. 

Louis Walsh hasn't gone anywhere, back for his eleventh series with the show. Now Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini have returned, having been away from the show since 2010 (aka the year they formed One Direction). Joining in the fourth judging spot is former Spice Girl Mel B, who has been a judge on the Australian version of the show. 

They certainly seemed to be having a good time, chomping on Chinese food and cake, having a boogie with contestants and winding each other up in between the judging. 

But we want to know what you think of our new judging line-up. Are you a fan of this year's panel? Vote now...
