THE X FACTOR
SIMON COWELL Interview
THE X FACTOR Coming in the Fall on FOX
April 15, 2011
THE X FACTOR is a competition series that gives viewers the opportunity to help choose the next musical megastar. The judges will travel the nation searching for undiscovered talent of any age – both solo artists and groups – who are willing to brave the panel of experts and the American public for a chance to make it big. THE X FACTOR raises the bar and takes the initial auditions to an exciting and explosive new level as the hopefuls will audition not only for the judges, but also in front of a live audience of thousands in venues across the country. The concert-like atmosphere will bring a new dimension to the performances, giving the contestants an opportunity to prove they have the whole package – vocal ability, charisma and stage presence – from the moment they step on stage. Those contestants who survive the first auditions graduate to “boot camp” and will then be divided into four categories: girls under 25, boys under 25, individuals over 25 and groups. Each category will be mentored by one of the show’s judges, including the inimitable Cowell. The contestants will be put through the paces and mercilessly whittled down until the top acts remain. Not only is it a battle between the hopefuls to stake their claim for the coveted win, but it’s also a showdown among the judges as to whose acts will dominate and make it to the finals. The judges may have their say in how the competition progresses, but it will be up to America to decide who ultimately has THE X FACTOR.
SIMON COWELL took the time to chat with us about his show, THE X FACTOR, which will be premiering in the fall on FOX. He talks about auditions, Fergie, audition booths and more. Simon was always my favorite judge on AMERICAN IDOL because most of the time he said exactly what I was thinking. Are you looking forward to THE X FACTOR?
