The X-Factor USA is here!
Fox’s much hyped British import has finally kicked off on American soil and looks set to be the biggest show of its kind.
Featuring judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, LA Reid and Nicole Scherzinger, the show favours American Idol with its nationwide auditions. However, there is a defining twist in that groups and solo acts over 25’s are eligible to enter.
Unsurprisingly, with this being the Judges’ Homes, the talented and talent-challenged are out in equal measure for a crack at progressing to the live shows. With special guest judges Enrique Iglesias, Pharrell Williams, and Rihanna playing assistant to Nicole, Paula, and L.A. respectively, fans were treated to a brand new reason to tune in.
