quick question. as an American Idol fan (okay...maybe more of a Simon Cowell fan. he's a genius for discovering talent!) who probably won't watch the train wreck that this season is going to be, what is the differences between it and The X Factor, which is coming to America quite soon?

I HIGHLY doubt that.

And the difference is that the X Factor is turning into a fixed freak show more than singing competition. Yet we still watch because it's so s***, it's good...if you know where I'm coming from.

I saw parts of Get On Your Boots video in the video medley they had on in the background. So yet another one crept in there.

The main difference from American Idol, other than the X Factor will have Simon Cowell next season, is there are three categories of singers/performers.

1. The Groups
2. The younger ones (much like most of the contestants on Idol)
3. The over 28's

So, if nothing else, there's a bit more variety in the acts.

The British version of Idol known as 'Pop Idol' which was also produced by Simon Fuller didn't survive the birth of Cowell's X Factor, and I suspect that American Idol won't last more than the next season.

I think that Nicole Scherzinger is going to be one of the judges on the US X Factor, and she looks hot in a figure hugging dress.

To change the topic slightly, does anyone think U2 would perform on the x factor. I remember Paul McCartney being on and the fact they are still desperate to get the next big hit played to the masses, is it a possibility ?

no U2 wouldn't go on it because they would lose their credibility as a rock band. The only rock band I can recall performing on the X Factor are Bon Jovi and they have never had any credibility anyway. Similarly with Macca, he did write the Frog Chorus after all.

I have been a U2 fan for 13 years now and will be for the rest of my days on this planet. If however U2 EVER appear the on X factor or even happen to mention that they watch and like the show, I will be a U2 fan no longer.
