Twenty-five??? What happens to people so young that they can't see a future - even if it's entirely different from what they're doing. So, so sad.

Believe it or not, Fox is said to be in talks with Simon Cowell to bring back The X Factor for a fourth season in 2015.

I guess we can expect this from a network stupid enough to pay more than $50 million for "Utopia," a show no one wanted to watch. A little earlier this year, Fox ran "I Want To Marry Harry," an even stupider show, which was canceled after just four episodes.

Surely to god, if they bring that show back, they'll get a better panel of judges! Perhaps Simon will come to his senses and bring back Paula. Or anyone that is not a twit.

I wouldn't care about the judging panel so much if they would just cut down on the spectacle. Too many numbers look like a Las Vegas extravaganza, with flashing lights, a gyrating supporting cast of dozens of background singers and dancers, and ear-splitting music that drowns out the contestants' voices. I also wish the audience could be given a few pointers on good manners before the show starts. It isn't necessary to scream all the way through a performance.

Look who performed in London on X-Factor! How I'd love to see one of their concerts. :)

Too bad the video in that link doesn't play. Adam and Queen really are the perfect match.

Watch it quick! This is the second one I've found today that has now been taken down.

It's still there. Every time I see him perform, I get angry all over again when I remember that he didn't win the title on American Idol.

zuzu, when's the last time you heard anything about... , well, about... what-the-hell-was-his-name who won? Sometimes the losers win bigger than the winners. We've seen it happen many times. Like Jennifer Hudson, for example. Adam is better known than most Idol winners.

His name was Kris Allen, and I think he was greatly embarrassed by his win. The loss didn't hurt Adam as much as it hurt the credibility of the show. Never before or since has another singer created as much excitement on the show, but the whole season was like a dirty political campaign. First there were the smear tactics practiced by Gokey's church members, who plastered the Internet with photos of Adam kissing another guy, and then there was the ballot stuffing by the sponsors, when AT&T representatives attended the finale watching parties in Arkansas and distributed brand-new phones with the capability to cast thousands of votes in seconds. These phones were not distributed in any other state.
