And she's really, really nervous.
The X Factor official twitter account revealed yesterday that the ‘RIP’ singer would be filling the still vacant fourth seat on the panel, tweeting:
“Or-some news! We can officially reveal that Brit babe and RIP singer Rita Ora will be guest Judging tomorrow in London. #GuestJudgesRule."
We see what they did there. Y’know, she’s called Rita ‘Ora’, they said ‘Or-some’… it’s very witty, it really is.

@The XFactor then tweeted this photo, showing Rita with Tulisa, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh on the main stage. We think she fits in very well, don't you?
Rita is the third guest judge to get her Simon Cowell on, after Geri Halliwell went a bit weird and straddled a car, and Leona Lewis had a go too. (At judging, not at straddling a car.)
Rita didn’t go down the Ginger Spice route and start manically screaming in to a megaphone though, no, far from it.
In fact, the London-born star actually seemed pretty nervous!
“IM HERE...... I CANT BREATHE! X-FACTOR..... IM JUST LIKE YOU REMEMBER THAT. IVE JUST STARTED TOO IM HERE TO HELP!” she tweeted earlier.
We love her already. It’s been rumoured that a permanent fourth judge will not be announced until after the boot-camp stages of the audition, which could be interesting.
Other guest judges supposedly lined up to appear are Mel B (oh dear lord) and Tinie Tempah.
What do you think? Would y ou like to see Rita Ora as a permanant fixture on The X Factor, or do you have someone else in mind?
