Where have these singers been hiding and, more important, how did American Idol miss these exquisitely talented singers year after year after year? I am beyond confused. Someone enlighten me because I just don’t get it.
To be fair, American Idol has uncovered some great singers over the years but last year was a disappointment to me. Some exceptionally talented singers were treated so unfairly and we were all left wondering why.
Back to Fox’s The X Factor – I have to say that the first week went very well and I particularly enjoyed the candid facial expressions from new judge, Britney Spears. It made for great entertainment but, beyond that, her remarks were honest and true, totally unscripted.
The same can be said for Demi Lovato. No holds barred, no way, no how.
I don’t know if it’s a factor of their youth or what but – whatever – it absolutely works. They are both genuine in their role and provide great contrast to the more seasoned remarks coming from LA Reid and Simon Cowell.
So, on with the show we go. The X Factor airs Wednesday, September 19th from 8:00-10:00 P.M. and Thursday from 8:00-9:00 P.M. on Fox.
