- Leona Lewis, who shot to fame after winning X Factor, returned to the show as a special guest judge
- During taping, she opened up about her wedding day
- The singer revealed that a huge lightening storm was a sign that her groom's late father was with them in spirit
Leona Lewis, who won X Factor 13 years ago, recently joined Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger as a guest judge on X Factor: The Band.
The singer was interviewed by Hello! magazine after taping.
About the experience, she said, "It’s a bit surreal sitting on the other side of the desk. I just loved it. It was such a good experience."
Another good experience Lewis had this year is getting married to her long-term love, Dennis Jauch.
The couple got married in Italy in front of 180 close friends and family.
Lewis said that what was supposed to be an outside wedding turned into an indoor one following a thunderstorm.
The storm lasted all night and the couple took it as a sign that Jauch's late father was watching out for them.
Lewis said, "There was so much energy in the room and everyone was rooting for us."
The newlyweds have settled on a ranch in California with two pet goats.
