* Kelly Rowland (2011); Former member of Music/DestinysChild, who's since carved out a niche for herself aside from simply being known as {{Beyonce}}'s bandmate once upon a time.

** Matt Cardle was savvy enough to play up his experience as a singer in indie rock bands and accompany himself on his guitar (to establish actual credibility as a musician beyond being a contestant in a singing competition), which appealed to a lot of viewers (although nothing was going to save him when he covered a BiffyClyro song for his winner's debut single and changed the title).

Added DiffLines:

** In spite of the heavy social conservativism and rampant homophobia in his home country, it's hard to consider ex Montenegro Eurovision entry Slavko Kalezic as anything other than this, with his amazing fake braid, homoerotic song lyrics, and gender fluid style. He also played a fake prostitute in a movie.


Added DiffLines:

**Louis Walsh is certainly camp. When he was supporting Brendan Murray, formerly part of his boyband Hometown, at the EurovisionSongContest of 2017 he decided to invite hyper camp and homoerotic Slavko Kalezic, the Montenegro entry, to audition on UKXF.

* [[Music/SpiceGirls Mel B]] (2012 as guest judge, 2014); formerly known as Scary Spice in the Spice Girls. She's no stranger to judging talent competitions, either, having previously appeared on ''AmericasGotTalent'', the Australian ''The X Factor'' and guest judging the UK version before Nicole Scherzinger was officially hired in 2012.

** Series 8: Averted. Winners Little Mix have enjoyed reasonable and consistent success, becoming the first winner who had a later album and single more successful than their first original ones, while runner-up Marcus Collins seemingly dropped off the face of the earth, settling for Theatre.

** Series 8: Averted. Winners Little Mix have enjoyed reasonable and consistent success, which grew over a long period, becoming the first winner who had a later album and single more successful than their first original ones, while runner-up Marcus Collins seemingly dropped off the face of the earth, settling for Theatre.


Added DiffLines:

**Series 13: Matt Terry's first song was a collaboration with the mighty Enrique Iglesias. It seems to have outperformed 5AM's debut song, which interpolates DMX, but Saara hasn't yet released her first major label release in U.K. She and Matt did a tour gig to 20,000 in Saara's native Finland.

** Series 9: Averted for now, as winner James Arthur and runner-up Jahmene Douglas have been about as successful as each other. Jahmene had a number 1 album, whilst James has been reasonably successful across Europe and Australia. However, James was involved in several controversies regarding twitter spats, rap battles and text messages- to the point a fan who bought his successful album demanded a refund from iTunes, and a petition was set up to ban him from the show before apologising for his actions in 2016, re-signed to Syco and made a CareerResurrection with the single "Say You Won't Let Go", which became a number one hit in the UK, Sweden, Australia, Ireland and Scotland. The contestant who's probably the most well-known overall from this season is fifth-placed Rylan Clark, although that's more as a general media personality rather than as a singer.

** Series 11: Winner Ben Haenow and runner-up Fleur East both released their post X-Factor debut singles within a couple of weeks of each other, with Fleur's single "Sax" charting higher than Ben's "Second-Hand Heart". While it's too early to see how their careers will pan out, Fleur probably has a better shot as Ben confirmed that poor sales of his second single resulted in him getting dropped from Syco, however, her album underperformed, and she's yet to follow up the massively successful Sax.

** [[Music/SpiceGirls "Scary Spice" Mel B]] plays this trope in the Australian version. Her guest judge stint in Series 9 of the British version (which included [[KickTheDog telling an octogenarian he bored her to sleep]]) prompted "What the Hell?" reactions from Gary, Louis, Tulisa and the audience. And in Series 14, she may be surpassing Simon in toughness and bluntness towards the contestants.

Added DiffLines:

** The food metaphors continued in the third week of live shows of Series 13, when he said Ryan Lawrie's performance of "Rolling in the Deep" was like "a pancake if it sang", in that "it was flat".

** Many of the boy bands that competed on the show tend to be groups of these, depending on how old the members are.
** For individual acts, notable examples are Sam Callahan in Series 10, Jake Quickenden in Series 11, and Matt Terry in Series 13.

* FunnyForeigner: Wagner and Goldie Cheung are among the more notable examples of this trope. Certain seasons had foreigners who had shades of this trope but were genuine contenders, such as Andrea Faustini and Saara Aalto.
