Are you ready for another near-constant stream of headlines when it comes to “The X Factor” here in America? If so, get ready to be excited.
Friday marks the beginning of the audition taping for the Fox series in Kansas City, which is the second stop for the show after kicking things off in Austin late last month with a pretty eventful couple of shows. If you remember, there were all sorts of rumors about whether or not Britney Spears “walked off” the show after hearing someone audition to one of her songs very badly. The reality here? She actually just went on a short break and there was no drama at all.
In moving away from Britney, the first round of auditions brought out a fun dynamic between Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato — who have already traded barbs online in a playful way. Let’s just hope this keeps up and Demi can do for the American version of this show what Cheryl Cole did in Britain — provide a sense of fun to go along with some smart judging skills and her dedicated fan following.
There’s no announced premiere date just yet for Britney’s “X Factor” debut, but we are expecting it to launch at some point during mid-to-late September.
