15 Years After Setting Sail, Check In With The Cast Of Titanic

100 years after setting off on her doomed voyage, the Titanic is back in the headlines and back on the big screen! In honor of the ill-fated ocean liner’s centennial anniversary, director James Cameron has sent his record breaking blockbuster Titanic into another round of theatrical release.

“I have genuinely enjoyed working with Kelly. She is absolutely lovely and a complete professional. But it has become clear the format doesn’t support another judge and we will never add a fourth judge to the panel,” Simon said yesterday as the news broke.

Yes, we’re sure the “format” was very troubled by Kelly’s arrival. Not that the other judges went ballistic at the news, or that she might not have been very good, no? Anyhow, it’s a stark reminder that both the UK’s Cheryl Cole and US’s Kara DioGuardi had better keep a watch out … [Photo: Splash News Online]
