X Factor 2012 premiere

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?

As an added bonus, if you check The X Factor site’s “About” page you’ll find that they still list last year’s judges panel including both Nicole and Paula. Oops!
