The X Factor USA: Season 2

<< < (2/14) > >>

Polaroid:
Are any changes in store for Season 2?
Well, a lot has been said about the process where America's votes knocks out one contestant, then the bottom two sing for survival and the judges chose who stays and who goes. In fact, at THE X FACTOR press conference on Dec. 19, a reporter asked if that process would change for Season 2 because the judges' went to deadlock so often. "Absolutely not," said Simon Cowell. "If that week had worked in the way I believe the process should have worked whereas Rachel was in the bottom, the judges actually could've saved her. The fact it went to deadlock [meant] that week the process didn't work. But if everyone had done his or her job properly that week, then this format would've worked really well. So, I'm not going to change the system. I'm just going to suggest that we do a better job when we do it in the future," he said.

What else can you tell us about Season 2?
How about this? You tell US what you'd like to see in the second season. If you have an idea for the second season, take our online fan survey to let the producers know what you liked and didn't like (and write in any suggestions you have). But, another thing being discussed, according to Paula Abdul, is that instead of the judges' each mentoring one category - Boys, Girls, Groups, Over 30s - they pick randomly out of a hat to mentor acts from each category! "So we each have one girl, one boy, one over, and one group," explained Paula. "That's actually what's being spoken about and I think the public is right on track."

The online fan survey didn't work for me. Maybe they're only accepting responses from a certain demographic now? :cmas5

Simon is guilty of the deadlock problem too. The week LeRoy went home, Simon had the option to send home Marcus or LeRoy but he decided to go to deadlock.

But the new mentoring idea is interesting. I'm not really sure on how I feel about it.

Prophet:
Thanks for the survey Polaroid!

Random drawing is certainly an interesting idea!

The answer that might fit in the first question is with switching judges... Choose carefully around all those stars (or well-known singers, producers) someone that really understand about the music and voice skill... So that, he/she can judge properly...

The idea in question-2 is good as well  :cmas16, maybe Paula have said that because she was overwhelmed with her big groups including all those 10-kids, which I think didn't really worked at all....  :(

Prophet:
Some interesting news for the show today:


--- Quote ---The X Factor host is leaving the Fox singing competition series. “I won’t be hosting next seasons X Factor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time,” Jones wrote on Twitter. “Good luck to everyone on the show.”
Sources close to the show confirm Jones is exiting the program. Fox and executive producer Simon Cowell are determined to make adjustments to the series after a first season that performed solidly, but fell short of what many thought was the show’s high potential given its dominance in the UK. Critics considered the British personality Jones a likely candidate to get the boot given his reviews.

:( :( :( I liked him :'( What do you think?

And:


--- Quote ---Steve Jones isn't the only one not returning for the second season of X Factor.
I can exclusively reveal that Nicole Scherzinger has also decided not to come back.
"She wants to focus on her music career," a source said. "She's spoken to Simon [Cowell] and he's given her his blessing."
