First Look at X-Factor

Posted August 13, 2011 by J Matthew Cobb in News

First images of U.S. version of X-Factor surfaces

Promotional pictures have leaked out on the U.S. version of Simon Cowell‘s reality-TV savior X-Factor and the buzz is already working in the show’s factor.

After Paula Abdul left the Idol ship back in 2009 and after Cowell announced his departure, American Idol has moved on with its judge replacements of Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, but X-Factor looks like it will bring Idol’s older crowd and much more when it premieres this fall. The show’s judges will include Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul, along with veteran music mogul and executive Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger.

At 49, Abdul is getting much of the attentionfor looking scrumptious. The Daily Mail expressed their praise for the glowing ’80’s pop singer after stating that she “still has the X Factor” as she “shows off her slender figure in a series of stunning photographs,” while Idolator presumed that Abdul is continuing to “age in reverse.”

Welsh TV host Steve Jones (the guy in the grey suit) will serve as the show’s judge. The 34-year old former model has hosted several shows in the UK including T4 and BBC 1 the Drop Zone. Looks like Seacrest has some major competition coming his way.

So what do you think?
Will the show beat out its network rival American Idol?
Are you going to watch it?
