I have waited for this show for such a long time. It has been a roller coaster with losing Nicole Schierzinger and Paula Abdul as well as the host of the show, Steven Jones, The X Factor has returned with new judges and soon to be named hosts. So far, the season has been very entertaining with the new judges and the new audition format. And what i mean by audition format is that it actually feels like a reality show. Here are my hits and misses:
–Demi and Brittney. These two were great additions to the teams. Originally, I was iffy on Brittney joining the team, but she has become a true star.
-“Reality” format. I really like how this show feels like a reality show. I feel like we are getting a real “behind the curtain” look at the show. Viewers get to know the contestant better than before. Plus, I never liked hearing Steve Jones’ voice.
-The variety. The show is looking for more than just a “pop” star this year. They seem much more open to all kinds or artists.
-Contestants drama. Very American Idol-ish, but I love it. Showing the contestants having breakdowns is amazing! It’s what people really tune in for. I think if they keep doing that, we will see the X Factor for many more years to come.
-Brittney. They are putting WAY to much attention on her (she’s worht $18 million to them). I feel like it’s The X Factor starring Brittney Spears, not The X Factor looking for undiscoverd talent.
-Not enough drama at the judging table. Last year, Simon fought tooth and nail against Paula and Nicole as well as LA but it seems this season that they are too worried about being friends than opponents. Let’s be real guys, you all want to win, now prove it by fighting with one another.
Overall, the X Factor USA season 2 looks promising. Let’s see who they find.
