'X Factor' official art -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

X-factor-Paula-Simon

It’s time to face the music, people. Seeing Paula Abdul alongside Simon Cowell again is just too good to resist!  Or is it?

We will know on Sept 22, the day after the much-anticipated (and much-ballyhooed, yes we know) talent show The X Factor premieres on Fox. Will the ratings be Idol-worthy? Will Paula’s hair look as full and as lustrous as it does it in this photo? Will that gal from the Pussycat Dolls convince us that she made a better judge than Corbin Bleu, that cute kid from High School Musical?

Let’s reconvene then, shall we? Here’s the art:

    what can I say?

    • Mike

      the answer to your question is pretty obvious: “what” “can” “I” and “say”

      • wsugar

        Randy Jackson is looking good, he must have had some work done.

      • randy dumb

        Yes! Randy has had work done…. BRAIN SURGERY!

  • dee123

    Wow! There’s some heavy photoshopping going on there.
    Nicole & Paula don’t actually look like themselves there.

  • dusty

    Who is the black guy that looks like Randy?

    • Mike

      I think his name is “I’m the first one ever to think of this joke!”

      • Mike

        Oh and it’s music producer L.A. Reid.

      • wsugar

        why is mike such an idiot

      • Mike

        Good one

      • U

        You know what else is a good one? Your face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Mike

        I guess I have to go with an oldie but a goodie myself….That’s what your mom tells me too! LOL

    • Angie L

      Actually L.A. Reid looks like the love child of Randy Jackson and Al Roker!

      • T.G.

        BEST OBSERVATION EVER! Almost choked on my breakfast reading it. LOL

  • PDDB

    It is unfortunate that LA Reid looks so much like Randy Jackson in this photo. Perhaps it was on purpose?

  • Brigette

    What’s more irritating: the fact that Simon and Paula leave a show to go do a different show that’s actually the same show (not like I wanted them to stay necessarily), or the fact that if you squint and ignore the two on the left, it looks like an old American Idol poster? If you’re going to do something new, shouldn’t it be something new?

    • Mike

      I’m not going to say it’s going to be a great show, but I think there are going to be enough differences between X-Factor and Idol where it won’t be the same. But if you’re going to market a show and there are people out there that miss the American Idol of old (i.e. Simon and Paula), why not bring something back that feels a little familiar? I guess I’m not going to judge the show based on marketing campaigns and casting and I’ll just wait to see the product for myself.

  • RK

    Thank God, another British reality TV host, because that’s what 90% of shows need, apparently.

    • Heather

      What’s the problem? Are you really concerned for the welfare of the opressed American reality TV host?

      • RK

        Sick of having a Brit host every show.

      • Mike

        90% eh? Not seeing how the math adds up. But you may just watch more reality competitions than me. Idol – American Host, Voice – American Host, Dancing With Stars – American Host….I’m sure there are many other shows that may have a UK host, but I just disproved your theory that it’s EVERY show. :-)

      • Owen

        Most of these shows began in the UK.

  • silk

    Why do this poster remind me so much of the American Idol judges of 2010? They all seem their look-alikes!

  • Piper

    Who’s the host (is he on the left?)

    • Mike

      Yeah I don’t even know who it is but the other 4 are judges. Though, I think at one point Nicole S. was supposed to be the host.

      • Kimmie

        His name is Steve Jones. He’s a Welsh TV host and model.

  • Kimmie

    Can’t wait for X Factor!! I hope this poster is coming soon to a shopping mall near me!! What a good-looking cast!!

  • JJ

    Corbin Bleu was NEVER supposed to be a judge. Never. He was rumored to be in the running as a CO-HOST along side Nicole. Nicole replaced Cheryl Cole as a judge. Get your Entertainment facts together Entertainment Weekly. And PS…Nicole won’t be as good as Cheryl. Not one bit.

    • jcm

      Hey JJ, ever think that maybe YOUR “facts” are wrong? Everyone always seems to believe the first thing they read or hear as fact and everything else after as incorrect.

      • Dave

        They is actually right, Nicole did replace Cheryl as a judge. Cheryl did a couple of the audition cities but they fired her and Nicole became a judge instead of a co-host as originally planned. The Corbin part was a rumour.

  • Leon

    GO X FACTOR!!!

  • Mitchell

    All I can think of is how much more I would have liked Cheryl over Nicole. But I still like Nicole, so whatevs.

    • Dave

      I feel the same, i was pleased when i realised they were both part of the show then they had to go and fire Cheryl.

  • UGH

    I’m not crazy about having another Kardashian being in another reality show.

  • Fabquest

    The Voice is The Best!

  • Trebor Hgils

    The whole show looks good to me. I bet it will be as good as it gets :)
