thinks just because some singers are talentless, superstar wannabes not worthy to compete on "X-Factor" ... it does not mean they wouldn't be perfect for ... "The Voice." OH SNAP!

Sources who attended the Austin "X-Factor" auditions tell TMZ ... Simon and L.A. Reid came up with the brilliant idea to mess with the NBC show by convincing bad singers to audition for "The Voice" instead.

L.A. Reid was overheard on set telling one such wannabe, "If you decide to try out again, please do it on another show." To which Simon added, "Yes, the good news is I hear 'The Voice' auditions are happening next week."

Good one guys.

Simon. Simon. Simon.
You could only wish to have a show as good as "The Voice."
your has been judges, your lack of being able to get true talent and the fact you a narcissistic a$$ all lead to a truly inferior show.

When the two new judges Simon has chosen for the X Factor prove to be the downfall of this show, perhaps he will begin to ask others for advice. Idol is better without him, The Voice is gaining popularity every year, and Simon being out of touch truly showed with his terribly staged performances last year, and a few of his choices for female contestants. It is sad to put a true legand like LA Ried next to the absurdly idoitic Ms. Spears!

Actually both Simon and LA Reid made a very stupid comment because the talent on the last voice was unbelievable especially the runner up.

Two of my favorite shows I enjoy...

But, I hate to realize that Simon and L.A. Reid are competing with Blake, Christina, Adam, and Cee Lo.

all about the money    

LOL guess you can read between the lines and see that Simon and friends are a bit scared of the success of the Voice. We will see how the X factor stacks up rating wise against the Voice this year. X Factor lost last season and will loose again this season. Even Brit can't save X Factor!
