Nicole Scherzinger, Alicia Keys, Pink, Kylie Minogue, Gary Barlow and Ronan Keating gave a special shout out to The X Factor and wished the contestants the best of luck. They were of course joined by the creator of the format Simon Cowell who shared that he was extremely happy to have met Rafi but was even more looking forward to meeting the new star of Bulgaria.
The galaxy of world music names and their greetings comes just in time - ahead of today's episode where the finalists are revealed, and days before the big concerts kick off this Thursday and Friday. The curious thing about each of them is that in addition to owning X Factor, they were an important part of the show.
Currently, Nicole Scherzinger is a judge on the anniversary UK edition and a mentor to the girl group. Former members of Boyzone and Take That - Ronan Keating and Gary Barlow, as well as the lady from one of the most successful girl groups - Mel B from the Spice Girls, are also in the role of judges.
Austrian star Kylie Minogue has also been part of The X Factor – she joined the format in her co-mentor role, helping her sister Dannii Minogue choose talents.
Among the stars who congratulate the native candidates, there are also some of the most popular and emblematic participants and winners - such is Leona Lewis, who won the format in 2006 and already became world famous with her first single Bleeding Love. Undisputed favorites of the audience all over the world are also names like the latest sensational band Little Mix, the hit One Direction and Olly Murs, who this year sang on the same stage with Robbie Williams.
