There's been no end of sparring between the judges from both sides: Amanda Holden has condemned Sir Tom Jones to his grave, with the Welsh legend hitting back claiming he'd never even heard of the Wild at Heart actress.
Meanwhile, Dark Lord Simon Cowell has had it in the neck from both Jones and Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am.
Reality TV is entering a brave new world. Little Britain's David Walliams, The Script's Danny O'Donoghue, Jessie J, will.i.am and 71-year-old Tom Jones are all new to the game.
But perhaps you prefer the comfort of Cowell's eyes rolling, Holden's seal-clapping and Dixon's uber-generosity?
