I just watched this 8-minute sneak preview of X Factor and I'm totally sold. I think I'm going to love this show! Read the article and watch the video and I bet you'll agree.

I can't wait! It's the only thing to look forward to since I decided I won't watch Idol again with Randy Jackson on there...NEVER, if Jennifer Lopez is there again. I realized that the two of them brought such annoyance into my life that I was better off not watching the program. I was so bummed by the outcome of the last two years' winners on Idol....I came to feel the same about SYTYCD. I'm remembering Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul quite fondly...lol..

It will have some similarities to 'The Voice' because the contestants will be split up among the four judges, who will work with them at home (the judges' homes) with mentors. Some of the mentor names being thrown around are Leona Lewis, Mariah Carey, and Adele, so it should be quite interesting.

Idol made me positively sick this season! I despise Jennifer and Randy! I also became annoyed with the blatant voter manipulation on SYTYCD. Some dancers stayed too long, others were gone too soon, and most of it was due to the judges ganging up on one person and letting the rest sail through -- just like on Idol.

Seriously....I got so P.O.'d about those shows this year that it was totally ruined for me. If I don't enjoy the show, why am I watching it? I never paid any attention to Lopez before...just another person. Now every time I see her on anything or she's mentioned, I get angry...lol.. Who needs that? And I really looked forward to the start of each of those shows...I feel cheated....lol.

I have the same reaction. If I see her in a commercial on TV, I mutter "Bitch!" and change the channel.

Yes! Yes! Yes! I just saw the commercial for her line of clothing at Kohl's and it ruined the rest of the evening. I've only felt that same reaction with a certain politician where I'd have to change the channel immediately as soon as I saw his face...lol.

Well, let me put that on the Tivo lineup! You know it's going to be heartbreaking to fall in love with some of the contestants only to see them fail to get to the big finish. It will be interesting to see if this panel of judges is going to be fair. I was so mad at Nigel this year, I could have slapped him. Honestly, I didn't think any of the Idol judges were as bad as he was, though they came close at times. And not to be cynical, but.... It appears that this is really a matchup between Coke and Pepsi. Rolling my eyes.

Only the last two? I was so incensed when Adam Lambert lost in season 8 that I wasn't at all surprised by the ridiculous results of the last two years. For me, that whole season had been "The Adam Lambert Show." All of the other contestants seemed to be mere backup singers and warm-up acts. And then he lost? WTF???? It made the flaws in the voting rules (and the biases of the American public) so obvious that I never expected Crystal to win, even though she sang circles around Lee. As for last season, that was ludicrous! I might be halfway inclined to accept some arguments in favor of the winner, but the runner-up??? Lauren Alaina didn't even belong in the top 10.

The last two years were the only years that I watched / followed it that much. There aren't many TV shows that I watch, which is also part of why I Really, Really hate what happened there. I loved watching people with great talent get the chance with exposure to succeed...just can't stand the egos and self-serving manipulations of the 'judges'.

Anyone going to watch The Sing Off? I absolutely **loved** that show last year. I couldn't believe how good the singers were.

I loved The Sing-Off. It might be the best competition show out there. There has never been a bad contestant. All of the groups have always been excellent. It starts on Monday. I wonder who's replacing Nicole Scherzinger.

I wonder why I wondered (a couple of posts up) who was replacing Nicole Scherzinger when I had posted earlier that it would be Sara Bareilles.

I'll start a new thread for The Sing-Off sometime today or tonight.

Just watched X-Factor. There were some wow-wow standouts and some I thought were just so-so. I loved the three guys, the Anser. And the last guy? I loved his voice, but he sang so softly, I barely heard the words. You gotta hope he stays clean.

Yeah, he's gonna break my heart if he doesn't...gotta tell ya, I loved that song. So very impressed with the whole package..so pleased that it's not Idol..so pleased that I'm not watching Jlo, or Jackson...though they just had to stick her in with that commercial...gag...
I want everyone to win, of course.

I thought about you when the commercial came on, Sherry. I knew you and I were having the same reaction simultaneously.

There were some really amazing talents, but there were a few too many of those sick and/or deluded individuals who just have to have their moment on national TV. I start out feeling sorry for them, but they quickly turn annoying, especially when they don't disappear forever after they've been on stage. How much did you want to slap that woman who kept arguing with Simon, even going so far as to wait for him to come offstage so she could argue some more?
