Who knew Justin Bieber was auditioning for “The X Factor“? After seeing one kid in the new promo for Fox’s reality competition, this is pretty much the first thought that entered our mind. Even though the 18-year old may no longer have his signature hairstyle, here are still plenty of young people trying to emulate it.
Away from the Biebs’ newest impersonator, this promo does a nice thin in actually reminds us that, as cool as it is to see Britney Spears and Demi Lovato on the show this year, they are not the people actually auditioning. We see a few highlights from the actual auditions, and save from a few seconds of Simon Cowell this is really all about the people trying out for the show rather than those who are expressing their opinion on their performances.
At the end of this season, there is still going to be the ridiculously huge $5 million recording contract handed down to who America picks as the winner — though so far, we have yet to see Melanie Amaro really reap the benefits of that. She does have a single out in “Don’t Fail Me Now,” but it literally just came out and is too early in the process to have made an impact on pop radio. The hope here though is that both she and the winner this year will become stars, as they are going to be given every chance to do so courtesy of the biggest names in show business. Just look at some of the successes to come out of Cowell’s show overseas — Leona Lewis, One Direction, and Cher Lloyd are names that are starting to make a splash in America.
