Are you ready for The X-Factor? After some judges drama and months of anticipation, the first preview for Simon Cowell’s new show has hit the internet.
Speaking about the US version of the show Simon said: “This is everything you would dream of doing if you were making a TV show. There is nothing more I could want. In fact, today I was thinking, is there anything else I need? Then, literally, a helicopter was transported past me in a truck, and I think I said we’ve got it all. This is why you make TV shows. This is everything I’ve always dreamt of doing.”
Paula Abdul added, “Simon says that I inspired him for the whole idea. I don’t know what that means. I don’t know if it is a compliment or an insult. It’s probably an insult, but it was funny. Having Simon high-five me and watching Simon giving a standing ovation to a young girl singing ‘Tomorrow’ from ‘Annie’…we had to hold it in. We were laughing very hard.”
The two night season premiere airs on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8/7c and Thursday, Sept. 22 at 8/7c on FOX. Check out the preview below.
