New Season for Singing Shows



American Idol, The Sing Off, X-Factor, and Glee, and many more like Nashville Star and America's Got Talent, are starting their new seasons this month. Its hard to know what to watch this upcoming season but I think The X Factor will be interesting with Simon Cowell. The countdown on their website says 20 days, 1 hour and 17 in minutes left until the launch of the program, at the moment I am writing this. This is the long awaited show that Simon Cowell left American Idol to produce and several lawsuits later, Simon Fuller ( Producer of American Idol) is getting a piece of the X Factor pie.

The X-Factor refers to that undefinable something that can't be named. Its not the voice, or the person's looks, but that something special that gives them star quality. The judges look like American Idol judges, there is even a Randy Jackson look alike. It is also similar to American Idol, in the sense that it is a singing competition, but it differs because the audience is involved in the tryouts and there are different categories of singers, young, old, and groups, so there is more variety of contestants. This show has been extremely successful in the UK and will probably be more so in the US. It premieres on September 21, 2011 and the countdown continues....20 days, 0 hours and 48 minutes...
