Judges: Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Antonio Reid, Nicole Scherzinger Network: Fox Original Telecast: November 22, 2011 THE X FACTOR was all about giving thanks this week, with the contestants picking songs that mean something to them and inspired them the most. Of course there was the good, the bad and the emotional – and picking on singers now feels like I’m taking cheap shots with it being an inspirational week, but with two people going home this week, there isn’t time for people to skate by. Every note, every song choice, every statement uttered is going to determine he should […]Read On »

THE X FACTOR Season 1 Recap: The Stereo Hogzz are turned off during latest elimination

The Top 11 went down to 10 last night on THE X FACTOR which saw the second “group” eliminated from the talent competition. Last week, Intensity went home, and this week two groups landed in the bottom two – The Stereo Hogzz and Lakoda Rayne. This brings up the issue of whether or not audiences HATE groups in these kind of competition or if they’re severely punishing Paula Abdul who is managing the groups. Ironically enough, both The Stereo Hogzz and Lakoda Rayne are by far better than some of the solo performers on the show. And both could be […]Read On »

Cast: Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Antonio Reid, Nicole Scherzinger Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: Nov. 9, 2011  It was movie night on the world’s second, third, fourth, fifth greatest karaoke competition, THE X FACTOR and with one group already gone from the show, will the others rebound or will Paula Abdul only have one contestant left after this week? So they are going with a theme night, eh? Hmm seems familiar. Oh yeah, AMERICAN IDOL has done it for a decade. If they really want to separate itself from the other Fox singing competition I think […]Read On »

Cast: Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Antonio Reid, Nicole Scherzinger Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: Nov. 2, 2011 Not surprisingly, the world’s second, third, fourth, fifth greatest karaoke competition, THE X FACTOR, began with the obligatory recap of the “epic” last episode that had the judges eliminating their last few picks in order to make up the Top 12. Outside of the whole groups and old people being included on this show, I don’t see much of a difference between this and the other The Stereo Hogzz Song: “Rhythm Nation” by Janet Jackson What the judges said: […]Read On »

Cast: Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Antonio Reid, Nicole Scherzinger Network: Fox, airs Tuesdays Original Telecast: Oct. 25, 2011 Finally, after weeks of auditions and narrowing the number of contestants down to 17, we get the live performances on THE X FACTOR. Now, we just gotta eliminate another five in order to get to the Top 12. Top 12 eh? Where have I heard that before? Oh, yeah that’s right AMERICAN IDOL does the exact same thing, unfortunately just as slow as this show has as well. It would have been much better to just have jumped to this point, but […]Read On »

Cast: Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Antonio Reid, Cheryl Cole, Nicole Scherzinger Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: Sept. 28, 2011 A quick recap of what you know about THE X FACTOR: Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell returned together, a pompous British dude with a Barney-colored Polo is the host, they kicked off Cheryl Cole as a judge despite the fact that she’s a better judge than Nicole Scherzinger, it has just as many freaks, losers and bad singers as AMERICAN IDOL and, yes, it is just another copy of all the other singing/talent shows we’ve grown to […]Read On »

TV Review: THE X FACTOR – SEASON 1 – “Auditions No. 1” – Series Premiere

Cast: Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Antonio Reid, Cheryl Cole, Nicole Scherzinger Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: Sept. 21, 2011 I’ve got a funny feeling going here … Simon Cowell (and his too-tight shirts and new eyeliner) and Paul Abdul (and her crying and weird clapping) doing a music competition/reality show. A bunch of talented singers and a bunch of crazies and losers. Similar audition stories and a pompous host that is more annoying than anything else. But wait … it’s still hot outside? So yeah there are a little too many familiarities to THE X FACTOR […]Read On »

TCA 2011: Will Mariah Carey join Fox’s THE X FACTOR? The answer is yes!

THE X-FACTOR logo

At today’s Summer 2011 Television Critics Association press session for Fox’s new reality singing competition THE X FACTOR, host and producer Simon Cowell let slip that Mariah Carey may be involved in some capacity in the upcoming season. “I don’t want to give too much away, but we do have well-known people helping us on the show,” says Cowell. “There’s a section on the show that Mariah will get involved with. She’s been enthusiastic from Day 1 and she selfishly got pregnant, which is why she didn’t end up as a judge.” We’re pretty much sure he was being cheeky […]Read On »
