Tears, cheers, and one-liners… Sounds like a new teaser!
With the seemingly endless singing competition shows on air today, it seems like a near impossible feat to try to make one seem somewhat original. But, in a brand new promo for the brand new season of “The X Factor,” the effort comes pretty close to a success.
“They all have a dream,” a pop art-styled title card reads. “But who has the talent… To win it all?”
Up until now, we’ve just got a few, brief looks into the new season, mostly highlighting Spears’ role in it.
The new, intimate minute-long teaser shows the packed auditorium set, focusing on the star of the show… The contestants.
Opening the clip, the promo show hopefuls standing in line, signing paperwork and getting fitted with wristbands. Wide, swooping shots of everyone that showed up for the auditions, highlight just how slim a chance that one person has to win it all.
“You’ve got to show us you’re worth five million dollars,” Simon points out to one contestant later on.
In two close up shots, it shows a pair of contestants – one in the bathroom and one behind a curtain - preparing to take the stage in silence.
Though short, the judges are given their time to shine through in the tease too… First, walking in to the stadium looking very Armageddon-like.
They also get their fair share of soundbites…
“Four yeses,” says LA Reid.
“You’re so fun to watch,” says Britney.
“It was so good,” says Demi, who gets teary at one point.
“I think this is your time,” says Simon, setting off cheers.
“The X Factor” starts Wednesday, September 12 at 8/7c.
