Are You Excited For ‘The X Factor USA’?

With September now upon us, it can only mean one thing – the launch of The X Factor USA!

And judging by the number of billboard’s we saw during our time in LA covering the VMA’s, its home network Fox are banking on the show matching the success of its UK counter-part – and then some – when it premieres on September 21st.

However, we couldn’t help but notice how muted buzz for the show seemed from the most important corner – the audience.

As such, we want to know – are you checking for the Stateside incarnation of The X Factor and the many differences it boasts from similar themed shows such as ‘American Idol’?

Peep the show’s latest promotional video, and make your voice heard in our poll below…

Hot Shots: Janet Jackson Sports New Do’ In LA

Despite setting sail way back in February, Janet Jackson‘s ‘Number Ones: Up, Close, & Personal Tour’ continues to blaze on.

A box-office hit, the trek’s latest stop was Los Angeles’ Greek Theater last night, where she debuted a new longer locks.

She looks great, so on and so forth, but is anyone else ready for some new music? Call us selfish, as we’ve seen this show already, but at 45 time, the body, and today’s audience wait for no one. As such, there’s only so long talk of a Janet comeback can actually have a chance of happening. I mean, her show was the business, but the one resounding critique was that it felt like an 80’s/90’s revival tour.

What’s more she is capable of hanging in the contemporary arena when she wants to (see: ‘Feedback’, ‘Rock With U’, ‘LUV’). Needless to say, calls to Darkchild, Jimmy Jam, and Terry Lewis are imperative. Stat.
