Boy 20 years old mother, 42-year-old stay at home mom and 13-year-old with big dreams of pop were among the discoveries (September 21) two-hour premiere on Wednesday, "X Factor", the long-awaited new competition Foxx sings.

The show is adapted from a British hit, featured the return of American television, Simon Cowell who, after nine seasons, left the "American Idol", to launch the "X Factor" in the States. Cowell was joined on the panel of judges from the entries of the executive Antonio "LA" Reid, a former "Idol" sparring partner Paula Abdul and pop star Cheryl Cole and Nicole Scherzinger, who played the game of musical chairs premiere episode. (Cole appeared on the auditions in Los Angeles, and then gave way to her chair Scherzinger Pussycat Dolls.)

There are several major differences between the "X" and "Idol" being only $ 5 million, the contract will be awarded to "X Factor" winner. Other differences? "X" is open to singers aged 13 and above, including a group of artists, participants will eventually be divided into four categories (boys, girls, over 30s and groups), and listening to the first rounds are held before a live audience as well as private quarters of the early "Idol" rounds.

In addition, according to its premiere sentence, "X Factor" is a more hopeful, positive vibrations than the "Idol" contestants focus on inspirational backstories instead of listening to gag. This was the tone early with the first participant in the Los Angeles trial, 13 -year-old Rachel Crowe, who even at his young age, listening to is called "The most important thing I've ever done in my life."

Spiral Hair Crow, who sang sweet, energetic version of Duffy's "Mercy", told the judges she wanted more house for her six-person family, which is now crammed into a two-bedroom house. The judges took its action, with Paula says she did "exactly what we need people to do at this stage." She swam to the next round, possibly early beneficiary of the judges a good mood.

Siameze Floyd, a 30-year-old "megastar" in waiting, who are already dreaming about his own energy drink ("Siamenergy!"), Was a bit harsh way. Since it was blown up from the Prince, "do and heels to match, he took the judges by surprise a series of spins, splits and high kicking that reminded David Lee Roth by James Brown. LA Reid was not sold, questioning" originality, "Floyd, although other Three judges sent him through, despite (or perhaps because of) the prediction Cowell that "it will be a total, total nightmare."

The differences between Reid and Cowell teased in assembling the two disputes with each other, all set to "Eye of the Tiger." If "Idol" has been focused on the back and forth between Simon and Paula, "Factor X" foreshadowing a collision between two large dogs on opposite ends of the table of judges.

But both the Cowell and Reed failed to agree on Stacy Francis, a 42-year stay at home mom, who treated her trial as her last shot at glory. To say she was kicking around and was told she was too old for the past 12 years, she told Cowell, "I do not want to die with this music in me" and proceeded to let it out with a version of Aretha Franklin »(You Make Me Feel Like) Natural Woman "that Cowell called" one of the best plays I've ever heard in my life. "convenient Francis graduated to the next level of competition, sob story in tow.

Seattle plays were recorded in the second hour of the show, and 20-year-old Marcus Canty impressed the judges his confidence, willingly take on Stevie Wonder "I Wish". Reid, one of the biggest votes of confidence in the show, compared to a young singer Bobby Brown, while Cowell labeled him as "one to watch." Canty, a self-described "boy mom" who put off college to pursue his dream of pop, fell to the floor of the stage when he heard the applause from the crowd.

Anser, a trio boy band from Salt Lake City, Utah, also impressed, but the closing show slot was given to Chris Rene, a 28-year-old trash collector and the restoration of the substance abuser whose original song, "Young Homey" won the judges, and as the crowd in the arena in Seattle. The song is sung religious grounds / rapped verses and Rene came in (slightly shaky) falsetto in the chorus, but the judge drew it. "As you write," Lil house that you Trippin 'on'? " Scherzinger said, referring to the lyrics. "Yes, dear, I'll be Trippin 'on you. I'm serious." She said that Rene, you guessed it, "the X factor."
