Sharon Osbourne has had a dig at Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora since joining The X Factor 2016.
Sharon Osbourne has had a dig at last year’s judges Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw.
Sharon has returned to The X Factor for the up-coming series, she’ll be alongside boss Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger.
Speaking about Nick and Rita, Sharon told The Sun: “If I was a contestant and there was a young girl or guy on the panel, who’s had success but not long success because they are so young, and they were telling me what I should and shouldn’t do, I would tell them what to do,
“I think when you are advising people on their career, it always comes better from people who have had experience through age and who have had a long career themselves.”
She added: “If somebody has just happened and they are two years into their career, then they can’t tell someone what to do, or what they feel they should do.
“Or they can tell them, but the person they’re telling is going to be like, ‘Who are you? Are you going to be here in five years?’ They haven’t passed the test of time yet.”
“But we – Simon, Nicole, Louis and I – have all got decades in the business.”
The X Factor returns to ITV at the end of this month.
