    I work with a woman who’s almost a ringer for Gillian Anderson? Would THAT qualify me for a role? lol

    I know some people don’t think that it’s fair to have contestants who already have management compete on the show, but I think it’s okay, because it most likely means that they are gonna have better luck finding talented folk who truly are worth investing $5 million into. Although, I think they had good fortunes with all the top six finalists this season (the ones mentioned in the PR except Marcus imo cause he seemed generic to me).

    They Better Finalize that Deal with Britney Spears! I cant wait to see her as a judge.

    I loved X-fator UK but the US version was just horrible. Nicole and Paula just sucked bad. The talent was The Voice style sub par bar singers and has beens attempting to get a break forever when they have no shot. Simon you better pull a rabbit out of your hat this time. Your first season couldn’t have been much worse. LA Reid acted odd and off the wall too. Is that really the best you could do? I had to fast forward Nicole fake Sherzinger with no charisma, just an absolute disaster she was. You got it right with Britains Got Talent 2012, now fix our shows over here. Howard Stern is a start in the right direction.

    Britney Spears, if signed, will double the X-Factor’s ratings.
