X Factor Judges Highly Anticipated
A mother's son 20 years, a stay of 42 years of age, the mother of his house and a 13 year old boy with big dreams Pop were among the findings on Wednesday (September 21) first two hours of "The X Factor "Fox singing competition again expected.
The show, an adaptation of the hit UK, featured the return of American television by Simon Cowell, who, after nine seasons, to the left of "American Idol" to start "Factor X" in the U.S.. Cowell was joined on the panel of judges by the record executive Antonio "LA" Reid, his former "American Idol" Paula Abdul sparring and pop stars Cheryl Cole and Nicole Scherzinger, who played a game of musical chairs in the first episode. (Cole appeared at hearings in Los Angeles, then moved to his chair Scherzinger Pussycat Doll.)
There are several important differences between the "X" and "Idol" record deal all, $ 5 million, to be awarded the "X Factor" winner. Other distinctions? "X" is open to singers aged 13 and over, including groups of artists, participants will eventually be divided into four categories (boys, girls, over 30 years and groups) and the towers of the hearing will be held early face a live audience rather than the closed in the early "Idol" rounds.
Also, judging by its offer of Premiere, "X Factor" is to opt for a more upbeat, positive vibe "Idol," which focuses on the participants rather than inspiration backstories hearings gag. The tone was at the beginning with the first competitor in the tryouts in Los Angeles, 13 years Rachel Corneille, who even at his young age is called the hearing "the most important thing I've ever done in my life. "
Spiral Sleeping Crow, who sang a cute, emotional version Duffy "Mercy", the judges said they wanted a bigger house for his family of six, which is currently crammed into two bedrooms at home. The judges took their job, Paula said, "what we need people to do at this stage." He sailed up to the next round, perhaps the recipient of the judges at the beginning of good feelings.
Siameze Floyd, a 30-year "mega star" on hold, who has dreams of his own energy drink ("Siamenergy"), had a little more difficult road to travel. With blowing Prince 'do and heels match, he took by surprise the judges with a series of turns, splits and high kicks that looked like David Lee Roth, in the form of James Brown. LA Reid was not sold, to ask him to Floyd "originality "even if the other three judges sent him through, despite (or perhaps because of) Cowell predicting that" there will be a total, say nightmare. "
The disagreement between Reid and Cowell was teased into a montage of two bickering with each other, all set to "Eye of the Tiger." If "Idol" was driven back and forth between Simon and Paula "X Factor" is warning of a confrontation between the two big dogs at the opposite end of the table of judges.
However, both Cowell and Reid were able to agree on Stacy Francis, 42, homemaker mother who has treated your setup, as their last chance of glory. Which was released at all and said it was too old for the past 12 years, Cowell said, "I do not want to die with this music in me", and begins to let out with a version of Aretha Franklin "(You make me feel Like) A Natural Woman, "which Cowell called" one of the best auditions I've ever heard in my life. " François graduated comfortably to the next level of competition sad story, in tow.
Seattle a test to see emphasized in two hours, and 20 years, Marcus Canty wowed the judges with her confidence, Footloose to Stevie Wonder "I Wish". Reid, together represent the largest vote of confidence, when a young singer Bobby Brown, but Cowell has tagged "to keep an eye on." Canty, self-described "mama's boy", who put off college to pursue his dream pop, fell to the ground when he heard the crowd cheering.
The Anser, a trio of boy band from Salt Lake City, Utah, also made an impression, but at the end of the show was Chris Rene, a garbage collector for 28 years and drug addict in recovery, whose original song "Young friendly" won over the judges and the crowd at the stadium in Seattle. The song is sung religious verses / hit, and Rene have entered into a falsetto (a bit agitated) to refrain, but the judges picked him up. "What you wrote," Lil friend, which Trippin 'on'? "Scherzinger asked, referring to the lyrics of the song." Yes, honey, I'm Trippin 'On You. I'm serious. "She said that Rene had, you guessed it, the" X factor ".
