Simon Cowell & Paula Abdul: 'X Factor' Preview!

Check out a preview of The X Factor featuring judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, and L.A. Reid!

The singing competition, which premieres Wednesday, Sept. 21, on Fox, will be hosted by British TV personality Steve Jones.

“Let’s face it. A year is a long time. We all change our attitudes and this is a different decade. It’s not about me anymore. It’s about them. I want to make people’s dream come true. I even think about the environment,” Simon, who at first appears to have shed his snarky side, says at the beginning of the sneak peek.

    Not a fan of Nicole. She has never proven to be a good judge, but then again, neither has Paula.
    I would have liked to see Cheryl on this panel, but realistically speaking, there are quite a lot of Americans out there who wouldn’t be as open-minded to her accent.
    I’m sure I’ll tune in occasionally to see that smug smirk on Simon’s face. My bet is he’ll get either the boys or groups category.

    They made an issue of Cheryl Cole’s accent but let Steve Jones host? He has a super thick Welsh accent.

    But going by these promos it looks like they made him change his voice to sound more stereotypically British, why couldn’t they have done this with Cheryl?

    POES LIPPE Says:

    Even though I hate Simon Cowell’s guts, I have to say in at least two areas they’ve already one upped American Idol, the host is ten times more attractive than Ryan Seacrest and as an added bonus he’s not a closeted homosexual and LA Reid has actually produced for modern day artists in the last 20 years as opposed to Randy Jackson who hasn’t really done anything since 1992.

    What the hell is Simon wearing o.O?

    Sharis Says:

    From AI judges panel – Randy annoys me, from XF: Paula and Nicole are irritating. Whould love to see Steven Tyler, Simon and J.Lo as a judging team.

    Selma Says:

    Why do exactly they judge singers if any of them can actually sing?

    The only one who has rights to brag is LA Reid but lately his choices as exec were painful, so he might have lost his touch a long ago.

    Cowell being mean to singers, when he cannot sing at all, is really ironic.

    Why not put him on a stage and sing in frot of those who can and get feedback?

    That would be a great show.

    I saw this tease during the All stars game last night and it looked bad. I’m sorry..they are trying to make it look like it’s a better version of AI but they failed.

    I was going to watch. And now I”m not because of what they did to Cheryl! Give America credit, we would have gotten use to Cheryl’s accent and style. . .she’s a BORN star and cutting her short over in North America, is GROSS!
