Sorry about the lack of updates at Oh-Jesse for the past little while, but my computer unfortunately crashed and had to be rebuilt. I was unable to update while it was being fixed, but now I have it back and will be posting again. Also, we have two new co-webs that will be helping out and posting often! Again, sorry, but stay tuned for updates soon!
“As we enter the final furlong of the race for US X Factor judge, two new names have crept up on the outside.
Although Simon Cowell is expected to reveal the full line-up within the next few days, last-minute contenders Jesse McCartney and Julianne Hough held formal auditions with Fox executives this week.
Both have what it takes to succeed. Singer-songwriter-actor-all-round teen-heartthrob Jesse, 25, co-wrote Leona Lewis’ hit single, Bleeding Love, so is already pretty cosy with Cowell.Meanwhile Country star, Julianne, below, is Derek’s baby sister – yep, as in the Derek going out with heavily-tipped US judge Cheryl Cole.
Oh, and just to complicate things further, Julianne is dating Ryan Seacrest, host of rival series, American Idol, Cowell’s old show and now overseen by his arch enemy, Simon Fuller.
I’m told: “Simon believes Jesse has the right look for the show, and would appeal to both grans and young girls. While Julianne looks fantastic on camera and has quite a high profile in the States.
“Cheryl would love Julianne to be involved as they’ve met through Derek. She’d like a friendly face on board.””
I have added to new sets of candids to the gallery. The first is from St. Patrick’s Day of Jesse and his girlfriend out to dinner at Hemingways in Hollywood. The second is more recent candids on April 4th of Jesse and his girlfriend out and about in West Hollywood. Be sure to check them both out in the gallery.
