This season, the X Factor 2012 judges will again have advisors to help them choose their final contestants during the judges’ homes round and we know three of the four advisors.
According to multiple reports, Marc Anthony will join Simon Cowell and his groups division. Nick Jonas will lend a hand to Demi Lovato and her 12-16 year olds while Justin Bieber will join L.A. Reid and his Over 25s group.
Britney Spears and her 17-24 year olds division have yet to be linked to an advisor. We’ll keep you posted on that as soon as we find out.
I wish they weren’t doing that whole judges’ house round. Last season it felt so offensive to bring these hopefuls into their multi-million dollar homes then basically slash their dreams. It just felt like such bad taste. But a lot of that season felt like it was in bad taste, so let’s hope there’s some improvement there at least.
The X Factor 2012 returns to Fox Wednesday and Thursday Sept. 12 and 13.
The X Factor 2012 premieres Wednesday, Sept. 12 and Fox has let us in on an up-close-and-personal sneak peak.
We don’t get to see much (OK, any) singing in the video posted below, but what we do get is was Fox does best and that’s drama. And by drama I mean exploitation and exaggerated bickering among the judges. This video has it all: insults, costumed contestants and even a woman being led out in an ambulance. I hope there’s actually going to be some singing this season!
It looks like Simon will have a playful relationship with Britney Spears and Demi Lovato, at least. Anything is better than that uncomfortable relationship he had with Nicole Scherzinger and ex-host Steve Jones last season. Speaking of hosts, there still hasn’t been a confirmation on who the new host will be.
The long awaited arrival of The X Factor 2012 season is nearly here. They’ve got new judges and new talent and it all looks like it’s building up to another great season.
FOX has provided a few glimpses at new singers heading our way like in the video below, but right now most people are talking about those changes at the judges’ table. Nicole was obviously a last minute fill-in and wasn’t expected to return after her disastrous stint in the role last year. I was surprised by Paula Abdul’s departure, but onward and upward.
Now we’ve got Britney Spears and Demi Lovato filling those emptied seats and we hope they’re up to the task. There were of course tabloid-ish stories that Britney was cracking under the pressure, but I’m guessing she’ll do just fine.
Are you ready for the premiere of The X Factor USA on FOX this September 12th?
And everyone thought Britney was going to be the next Paula Abdul. It turns out she’s not such a softy, after all.
In fact, in the new X Factor 2012 promo released by Fox, Brit sounds more like Simon Cowell than Paula Abdul. The video shows several snippets of Britney criticizing contestants during the X Factor Season 2 audition process.
“You cant destroy that song, sweetie,” Britney says in the promo. “You definitely don’t have the X Factor,” she says to another contestant.
Britney joins fellow new judge Demi Lovato in filling the seats next to Cowell and L.A. Reid when the show premieres Sept. 12 on Fox. Are you lookinfg forward to seeing Britney Spears as a judge this season?
