The buzz is still strong on the fact that the legendary Sir Tom Jones has been confirmed as a mentor on the UK’s new version of “The Voice” that will air on BBC later this year. Fans are now holding out hope from even more from Jones. He has now announced that he would like to judge “The X Factor.”
The 71-year-old singing superstar told The Daily Star that he would like to be a judge on “The X Factor” for sure. He didn’t clarify whether he would like to be a judge on both shows simultaneously or whether he’d prefer “The X Factor” over “The Voice.”
From all indications, though, Sir Tom Jones is likely quite happy with his current position, and there has been already a great deal of enthusiasm expressed over the legend’s willingness to mentor young performers on “The Voice.”
Fans of Tom Jones have another reason to celebrate this new year. Tom has been named as one of the judges for the The Voice UK, a spin-off in the country of the hit US show, The Voice. Other performers that will be sitting in the judges’ seats with Tom include Will.i.am, Jessie J, and Danny O’Donoghue. Reggie Yates and Holly Willoughby will be co-hosting the show each week.
