Rihanna to guest judge on 'X Factor' -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS


The rumors are true: Tonight on Fox’s X Factor, the competition series has lined up its first guest judge: Rihanna.

The singer will be joining LA Reid as he coaches the boys team at his home. And we’re hearing she’s not the only celebrity guest judge that’s going to appear tonight (hmmm…). Here’s two exclusive pics of Rihanna and L.A. Reid from tonight’s two-hour episode:

    Anyone who’s watched X-Factor UK knows that each judge picks a friend to help them decide which acts go through to the live shows during the judges’ houses round. Of course there are more guest judges to be revealed…three more, by my count.

      …and if the X Factor UK template is to be followed, Simon Cowell’s “celebrity” guest will be… SINITTA!!!
      Never heard of her? Gee, she had 4 top ten UK hits between 1986 & 1989. Produced by Simon Cowell.

    Why do they always get mediocre singers on these shows? Paula Abdul on Idol AND X-Factor and now Rihanna? What is she going to coach them on? The wonders of auto tune?

    • Lincoln

      On how to get people like you upset without even trying.

      • jen

        AM is 100% right. Rhianna is a HORRIBLE singer. What lesson are any of these contestants supposed to take from her? That the actual ability to sing is completely irrelevant in the music world??

    • Sarah

      Yup, another show down the drain.

    • mike

      ummm…Rihanna doesn’t use autotune.

      • weimtrainer

        ummmmm…have you ever been in a recording studio? Everyone uses autotune to some extent during the recording process. Many use it live as well. She may be one of them, unless you work for her stage crew and know 1st hand, which I doubt.

  • AlanMattin

    Will the guest’s be able to have positive word toward’s there future.

    • Thomas

      Maybe if you learn to speak regular English.

      • weimtrainer

        LOL…punctuation saves lives….

      • Toronto G

        He can’t even spell.There,which should have been THEIR.

    I read up on this earlier today – I’m not sure if this is fully accurate, but the guest judges are said to be Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Pharell, and Enrique Iglesias. Safe to assume Mariah will be with Simon. I do believe Nicole collaborated on a track with Enrique on her latest album, too.

    • Jane

      I agree – they collaborated and have been friends for years. Nicole gets Enrique. I loved “Heartbeat”

  • Tori

    Oh, forgive me. I thought this show was about singing, not walking around in your underwear and pretending you actually have talent.

    • ks

      LOL this!!!

    • Sley

      But she does it so well.

  • Classy!

    I will watch b/c of Rihanna. I love her to death!

  • kyla

    Tori people like you are so ignorant and jealous. RiRi is the hottest chic round the world right now and i mean this as i travel round the world in my work i see that she is in great demand . countries around the world are jostling to have her perform. you cant deny she is just so popular and she sings songs that everyone wants to hear. The charts dont lie. Truth B Told. Viva RiRi. She is so sexy and beautiful and we all want a piece of her. So there really is nothing you jealous lot can do about it.

    • ks

      Spelling or correct use of English escape you?

      • nikki

        Try as I might, I found no spelling errors in Kyla’s text. You’re entitled to your own opinion, not your own facts. Hater!

      • Gforce

        your sentence is wrong. It’s “Spelling or correct use of English escape(s) you?”

        Somebody needs to fix their grammar before they complain about other people’s grammar.

        I LOVE RHIANNA. Go live in a different decade if you don’t! Then again, people from different time periods would probably like this sexy, charismatic individual as well! Who knows? alls I know? I love her. She’s just got the x-factor and she can sing.

  • kyla

    HERE IN THE uk, We Found Love is gone straight to No.1! I shall Drink To That too!

  • kyla

    Also she doesnt Steal from other works like some we are hearing about.

  • Montoya

    Hahaaaa Rihanna got some of you people maaaadddd xD! Well I guess she’s doing her job then. Make that money babygirl don’t worry about doubters lol. Smh.

  • D

    Haahahah people dissin Rih because its easy to forget how supremely successful and talented she is, what with her incredible body making all of you fatties jealous. And now youre going to come attack me, but i dont mind cause im just one of the NAVAAAY.

  • NonEntity

    Ri-Bland-Ah is an ordinary person with below average singing skills. It is telling that she can not put together her own music nor survive without a marketing team. It is not possible to discern whether she has talent when every note is manipulated and warped by producers.

    • Adriana

      She’s a pop star, you idiot! No one expects her to DIY like PJ Harvey or Tori Amos. And if you’ve ever even seen her perform live, then you would know that she can sing acapella very well. But since you are an ignorant A-Hole, then you wouldn’t know that.
