    How competitive are all the judges feeling this year?
    You dona��t get competitive until you get your category. At that point, you almost forget about the artistes a�� ita��s so much about you winning. Or someone else not winning a�� which is why you put competitive people on the show because if you dona��t really want to win, ita��s kind of a boring show.

    Working with Mel B.
    I think she brings an incredible energy to the show. She isna��t a judge for hire. Plus, shea��s really fun to be around, although I do get why she is called Scary!

    On bringing Louis back.
    He brings a sort of madness to the show. Hea��s a nutcase, and he has a very different view of the world than I do. He is a real optimist, whereas, I tend to be a little bit more cynical. But he loves his music. He loves doing the show. And I must say, he is a good manager. I mean he has sold over 100 million records a�� you dona��t do that with luck, you do it because you are smart.

    What are you most looking forward to this year?
    Having Simon Cowell back. When hea��s around, everyone is better. Everyone works harder. We always have to prove why wea��re there. He demands more.

    More on this yeara��s panel?
    This year is fantastic. This was meant to be. Therea��s good chemistry between all of us. Simon and Cheryl are very funny always annoying each other. Mel is just honest. This is the perfect X Factor panel, it really is.

    How competitive are you all
    feeling this year?
    Wea��re going to be very competitive this year. Everybody wants to win the show. Simon thinks hea��s going to win, Cheryl wants to win, Mel thinks, a�?Ia��m going to show them what Ia��m made of.a�� Ia��ve been there 11 years, I know what to do. Wea��re all competitive and we all want to win. But Ia��m going to win.

    Disagreements with other judges.
    I think with the other judges, wea��re always kind of going to either agree, or disagree or agree to disagree.

    Biggest audition turn off.
    When the contestants go a�?come on everybody join in, clap your handsa��. Ia��m like a�?uhhh noa��.

    How competitive are the judges this year?
    I think all of them are very competitive. Especially this yeara��oh yeah!

    Who is the most intimidating?
    I think all four of us are intimidating. I think a lot of people out of the gate are scared of Simon, but I dona��t know about me. I think they like mea��NOT!

    What is different this year?
    Wea��ve changed format points, and obviously, the panel changes everything because youa��ve got different dynamics. Simon and Ia��ve always had good chemistry where we bounce off each other.
    Do you and Mel B have similar opinions?
    We do and a lot of the time Mel says things and I think a�?thata��s exactly how I would put it, thata��s exactly how I feel.a�� Shea��s a bit more blunt than I am in her approach, which I love.

    Tell us about the judgesa�� dynamics.
    I think it would be uninteresting and
    not real if we didna��t disagree. Obviously ita��s human nature and you feel different things for different people. So therea��s been different points of view and disagreements.

    How competitive are you
    and the other judges feeling this year?
    Ia��m feeling more competitive
    than I ever have. By nature, Ia��m not a competitive person. But this time,
    Ia��m feeling more competitive
    than ever.
