The latest promo clip for “The X Factor” season 2 has arrived, and this one features some rather hilarious comedy courtesy of Simon Cowell — mostly because he is so self aware when it comes to how big of a diva he really is.
Really, there are two moments within this new video releases as a part of Fox’s fall preview that catch our eye in a major way:
1. Simon being escorted in to an arena by a massive throng of policemen — all while he is riding on a scooter.
2. Demi Lovato handing the executive producer / judge a tiara, and telling him that it works considering that he spends much of his time “acting like a little girl.”
Simon’s sense of humor is just one thing that the show is hoping to play up this time around, as one of the biggest issues with last year’s show was that it was all shine and no substance. No one seemed to be having enough fun, and the banter between the judges should hopefully change that a little bit.
As for the rest of this promo, it’s mostly all footage that you have seen already of contestants freaking out, getting arrested, and asking cameramen not to show their footage of them getting carted away on a stretcher to Simon. It’s pretty sad (and occasionally funny) stuff, and the one thing we are really wondering at this point is why the show is hiding the one thing that everyone wants to see on their show more than anything else — the talent.
What do you think about this promo, and do you think Simon and company need to have more fun? If you want to find out how Justin Bieber of all people is going to be involved with this upcoming season, be sure and head on over to this link.
