With The X Factor returning this evening, we thought we’d get you in the mood by helping you reminisce about the people that have previously won the contest and test your X Factor judge knowledge at the same time!
Can you remember who mentored the first ever X Factor winner Steve Broostein? Do you recall who guided Little Mix to victory in 2011? Can you even remember who last year’s winner Ben Haenow mentor was? Let’s find out.
How did you do? Let us know over on Twitter @maximumpop.
American chat show host Jimmy Kimmel asked Miley Cyrus to disguise herself as an Australian reporter and ask people their opinions of her, but did she agree? Of course she ruddy well did.
Disguised as Perth’s number one reporter Janet, Miley took to the streets of Hollywood to ask strangers what they thought of her ahead of her hosting this Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards.
One girl started twerking with her, one man spotted her and one person even said “the whole fabric of America is falling apart and she’s not doing anything to try and keep it together.” Ouch!
We have to say Miley was a very good sport, if people were saying some of these things about us, we’d probably cry.
Who said OMI was a one hit wonder? He returns with today’s Alarm Pop ‘Hula Hoop’, a track which perfect to listen to this late summer.
After the huge success of ‘Cheerleader’ earlier this year, the singer is back with more saxophones and steel drums on this summery soca-infused dance floor song.
‘Hula Hoop’ is the second single to be lifted from OMI’s debut album ‘Me 4 U’, which is scheduled for release in October.
Have a listen to ‘Hula Hoop’ below…
OMI’s ‘Hula Hoop’ is available when you pre-order ‘Me 4 U’, released October 16.
Remember last week when we told you about Jess Glynne’s amazing album ‘I Cry When I Laugh’? Well there’s good news, because that amazing album is now number one on the Official Albums Chart. Who’s laughing now? (Let’s hope she’s not crying too much).
Jess said of her latest chart victory: “I can’t believe it. It’s just… wow! It genuinely hasn’t sunk in yet – it really hasn’t. It’s the most insane feeling to have your whole album accepted by the British public. To see how well it’s been received is possibly one of the most overwhelming feelings I’ve ever had. I’m so proud and excited about this album – I love every song on it. The fact that people are buying it and loving it as well is like some insane dream!”
In the singles chart, Jess’ single ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’ falls to number three this week as Rachel Platten‘s ‘Fight Song’ charts at number one and Felix Jaehn’s ‘Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)’ reaches number two.
Calvin Harris & Disciples are at number four with ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ and Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor round off the top five with ‘Marvin Gaye’.

To celebrate Liam Payne’s birthday, we’re having a look through the evolution of Daddy Directioner’s hair. Prepare to smile and weep as we look through this track tale of love and loss.
It all started in December 2010 on The X-Factor with the straightened, long ‘flow’ to now, the quiff that is short on the sides. So how did we get here you ask? Here is the evolution of Liam Payne’s hair from 2010-2015.
2010: Liam or Justin Bieber?
2011: Beachy Waves, Liam style.
IT’S SO BIG A BIRD COULD TURN IT INTO A NEST.

Well, count your lucky stars you don’t have to wait any longer. Asami is back with her usual amazing hair and ‘A Cover Trilogy’ a series of live covers which showcases the diversity of her musical taste (fancy).
The first in the trilogy of covers is ‘Only Love Can Break Your Heart’ by Neil Young/Saint Etienne and it’s just beautiful. If we had to describe it in an emoji it would be this: Continue reading Asami Zdrenka from Neon Jungle is back and is about to melt your heart/face/life.
