he x factor is soooooooooooo bad,its loud,its like a circus,la reid makes no sense. It sounds scripted and anyone can just show up and sing stupid songs. it has combined The Voice,where family watches from stage,American idol,Americas got Talent, which is better with better judges, and the Howdy doty show from the 1950,s.X factor judges are all divas and simon is in charge all the time .Its a tacky show. Too big audience ,too much screaming and clapping for every contestant.ITS LIKE A CIRCUS!Every contestant and their sad stories gets in the way...We are watching to find, a singer.Simon seems so stressed and is not a good show to watch..it will destruct sooner or later.Paula is not herself,she always gives in to simon.Its and old rerun with them

X Factor for sure. There's actually some talent on it, unlike the winners from American Idol for the past two years. Ex: Melanie and Chris Rene.

X Factor! This show is gonna change dramatically over the next few weeks its gonna be like nothing youve seen before. Nicole is the only reason im watching X FACTOR she's amazing and incredible singer, dancer & performer! Cheryl Cole seemed fake and boring and just a pretty smile. She has NO credibility in the US... everyone here knows Nicole cuz of Popstars, Edens Crush, PCD, Dancing with the Stars winner, RENT musical, judge on The Sing Off and now X FACTOR she's the perfect choice! JLO who??

backfire    

X factor has truth and heart. Idol is an old fart with fake JLo pretending to care when all she cares about are her fake hair and killing animals to wear.

I'm absolutely loving the X Factor. The Simon / Paula dynamic is back. The talent is awesome and I love the whole vibe the show brings. Love L.A. Reid as well, he is an awesome judge.

Idol has become a mess with Simon and Paula. JLo doesn't deserve the 20 million or whatever she is paid and Steven Tyler is just blah.
