From one talent competition to the next, the 13th season X Factor UK is currently in full swing. As we get to know this year's contestant from the auditions, some familiar faces do come up. Here are 5 acts that back at it again, are they better than before?

The ‘judges houses’ stage has always been a highly anticipated part of the competition, the big questions are where are the contestants going and who are the guest judges? Over the last couple of weeks, there have been rumours surfacing as to who Sharon, Simon, Louis and Nicole will be seeking advice from. There has not been an official announcement yet, but this is what the Internet thinks.

3. Happy 33rd Birthday Amy!

Rehab singer Amy Winehouse would have turned 33 last week, but unfortunately she passed away 5 years ago from alcohol poisoning. Her birthday definitely did not go unnoticed by fellow singers.

Adele took time during her concert in Boston to honour the late singer. She revealed that Amy is a great inspiration to her and she was the reason why she started her singing career.

According to The Sun, Amy’s dad, Mitch, announced that Lady Gaga and Leona Lewis would be covering the late singer’s hit songs to raise funds for her foundation. The covers will be uploaded onto YouTube and they would start raising funds after 2 million views.   

 

4. DNCE’s Big Announcement

The very band that brought us Toothbrush and Cake By The Ocean is now about to release their first album!
