Betty Boop was last seen on the big screen in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? back in 1988. At long last, everyone’s favorite cartoon flapper is finally headlining her very own feature film. Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment is the production team behind the project. The film is being dubbed as “a music-driven hybrid animated comedy.”

“Betty is an icon, and one of the biggest stars in the world—I’m thrilled to be working with her,” Cowell said in a press release. “Betty, I’ve worked with some serious divas but I think you could be the biggest of them all!”

Series 11 of The X Factor UK is about to get a lot scarier. Scary Spice that is.

Mel B. has officially been confirmed as the fourth judge, sitting alongside Louis Walsh, Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell. The 39-year-old has previously judged the Australian version for two seasons and appeared during the UK’s ninth season during one of the audition stops. This marks her debut as a full-time judge on the British version.

“I’ve always thought honesty is the best policy when being a judge and that’s what I’m going to bring more of this year,” she said. “Whether it’s spotting an incredible singer, giving someone a reality check or debating with Simon over who’s got it wrong.” – Mel B.

For the first time in four years, Simon Cowell will sit on the judging panel of The X Factor UK. Both Cowell and ITV confirmed the news in a press release. With the last season garnering the lowest in years, all parties involved definitely want to reverse the downward ratings trend. Hopefully, Simon’s return can do exactly that.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be returning to The X Factor UK. It’s been three years since I last judged the competition and I’m excited to find a global superstar again. The UK X Factor has set the benchmark in finding worldwide superstars over the years – including One Direction, Leona Lewis, Cher Lloyd, Olly Murs, JLS and Little Mix. Despite all the rumours, ITV and the producers have not decided on the rest of the judging panel quite yet. You’ll just have to wait and see….” – Simon Cowell

Before Susan Boyle wowed the world with her Britain’s Got Talent audition, there was Paul Potts. The Carphone Warehouse store manager stunned Simon Cowell and the UK with his amazing operatic voice. With his dodgy teeth and quiet demeanor, no one expected such talent. Potts ended up winning the inaugural season of the talent competition. Cowell in collaboration with The Weinstein Company are telling his rise to fame in an upcoming movie titled One Chance.

The Devil Wears Prada director David Frenkel helms the project with Tony winner James Corden stepping in to play Potts. Also starring in the film are Julie Walters, Colm Meaney, Alexandra Roach and Mackensie Crook. I’m sure if this film is a success, expect more biopics of other winners from Simon’s numerous reality shows. Check out the trailer below.

FOX Premieres First X Factor Season 3 Promos

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Let the official marketing push begin. During last night’s 2013 MLB All-Star Game, FOX debuted the first two promo vids for the third season of The X Factor. This maybe jumping the gun a bit, but it looks like Simon Cowell finally got it right with regards to the judging panel. It’s about friggin’ time. The chemistry between Cowell and his angels- Paulina Rubio, Kelly Rowland and Demi Lovato- looks electrifying and genuine. I have to admit, I’m really looking forward to a female-dominated panel.

With that being said, Season 2 promos teased and promoted a very animated Britney Spears and we all know how that turned out. All we got were a bunch of one-word responses and awkward facial reactions. Seems that Simon is still bitter about his decision to bring her on board last season. The British judge serves a little shade to the “Toxic” singer in one of the promos. Check them both out below. The X Factor’s two-night premiere is Sept. 11 and 12 on FOX.

During a performance by Richard and Adam Johnson on the season finale of Britain’s Got Talent, Simon Cowell found himself trying to dodge eggs. As the finalists sang, Natalie Holt, a viola player from the backup orchestra, stood from her chair and began throwing eggs at the Brit judge. Security immediately whisked her away but not before Cowell was hit. After the performance, Simon joked about the incident saying “I didn’t like eggs. Now I really don’t like them.”

The most remarkable thing about the entire incident is that Richard and Adam didn’t miss a note and continued to sing “The Impossible Dream” as mayhem ensued all around them. Consummate professionals indeed.

What prompted Holt’s actions? Apparently, she competed on the show last year with her band Raven Quartet. Natalie, a BAFTA-nominated composer who appeared in the closing ceremony of last summer’s Olympics, has subsequently apologized for her actions. “I want to apologize to Richard and Adam for overshadowing their performance. I’ve never done anything like this before and in hindsight I have realized it was a silly thing to do.” Watch the entire thing go down below, along with Cowell’s immediate reaction.
