‘The X Factor’ shocks and wows Viewers during TV Premiere

see below

(Best Syndication News) - FOX’s ‘The X Factor’ premiered last night and there are many differences from the long running ‘American Idol.’ The show is said to be geared for adults more than teens, especially after they aired some rather shocking auditions last night.

The biggest difference is the age range. The new show includes people from the age of 12 all the way up to senior citizens. They have group categories, for young people, for those over 30, and for group performances. The ‘American Idol’ competition only allows younge people between the ages of 15 and 28 to compete.

Instead of having auditions in a room, ‘The X Factor’ contestants go on stage to perform for the judges and a live audience to see if they make it through to the next round.

The talent does not necessarily have to be singing or dancing. American Idol is based entirely on singing talent.

To make the show interesting, the winner of ‘The X Factor’ will get a record contract worth $5 million. Therefore, everyone is turning up for his or her chance at winning the big prize.

Since judges Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul have had a long run on ‘American Idol,’ their banter is similar to days on that show. Now you have a new judge, L.A. Reid, who is from Island Def Jam. They also had Nicole Sherzinger as a judge after Cheryl Cole was magically replaced by her during the show.

The X-Factor had 13-year old Rachel Crow, who sang extremely well during her audition. This young lady has talent! See below how she wowed the audience during the audition.

One audition was Siameze Floyd who was a cross between Prince and Jame Brown. He was continually doing the splits and jumping kicks. Hopefully he did not get injured during the audition. Reid did not vote for him, but the other three judges did. You can see the audition below.

The show had a man sing his own original song about being a stud, and at one point during the performance his pants drop down and he exposes himself. This may be shocking, but the producers might want to think twice about doing this far for ratings. Are parents going to let their kids watch this show after that stunt?
