SIMON COWELL’S new singing competition The X Factor begins in the U.S.A. on September 21, 2011. It is certain to be a hit, with the return of Paula Abdul along side, Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Nicole Scherzinger (formerly of the Pussy Cat Dolls) as judges.
The X Factor will have a similar flair to American Idol, but will allow ages 12+ and comes with a unprecedented prize of a $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music. It will also have Simon reunited with his sweetheart, ex co-host Paula Abdul, which was a smart addition.
But if Simon wants to step up his game, he may want to take my advice. I am tossing my hat in the ring to be a GUEST JUDGE speaking on behalf of the “regular people” of America. Simon, please watch the video and look me up if you decide to take the challenge! Good luck on opening night…break a leg or in this case break a vocal cord.
Lucky me…got a chance to go to the Chicago X Factor auditions and it rocked!
