THE X FACTOR has confirmed that British rapper Stormzy will guest judge on the hit show alongside Nicole Scherzinger.
It is thought the Mercury Prize-nominated rapper will head to South Africa as Nicole Scherzinger’s guest to assist her in choosing who to take to the live shows.
X Factor tweeted today: “We can confirm that #TheProblem aka #BigMike aka @stormzy1 will be @nicolescherzy’s right hand man at Judges’ Houses 👌 #MerkyFactor #XFactor”
The Judges’ Houses is the part of the UK show where contestants are whittled down and flown out to various locations around the world to compete for their place in the show’s live finals.
Judges usually enlist the help of a famous friend to help them decide.
Stormzy is yet to comment, but did retweet the announcement from The X Factor’s official account.
