Are you watching The X Factor?  Ya'll know I LOVE this show.  And I am loving our "Simon Says" contest we're having here at WBKR thanks to Fox 44 in Evansville and The X Factor.  All last week we gave away gift cards from American Express.  Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday we gave away $100 cards.  On Thursday, we gave away a $500 gift card.  And, we're about to do it all over again!!  Monday through Thursday of this week, Taunya and I will be playing "Simon Says" with you.

And, yes, this contest is inspired by Simon Cowell, the creator and lead judge on Fox's hit TV talent show, The X Factor.  Each weekday's winner is going to receive a $100 American Express Gift Card.  How cool is that?

Then, on Wednesday, "Simon Says" to tune into The X Factor on Fox 44 as the Top 12 contestants sing for your votes live.  Thursday morning, we'll ask a trivia question about the previous night's show.  Then, one lucky winner is going to receive a $500 American Express gift card!  That's right!!  $500!!

Brandi Gray of Owensboro won the big prize last week!  Who's going to win it this week?  It could be YOU if you tune into The X Factor Wednesday night, so make your plans now to WATCH & WIN!

And here's another BIG reason to watch.  We have a country boy leading the vote-getting so far.  Check out Tate Stevens' performance of Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive" from last week's live show!

What did YOU think about Tate's performance?  America LOVED it and put him in first place of the 13 acts on last week's show.

You can keep up with Tate Stevens and the other acts vying for the $5 million dollar grand prize by tuning into The X Factor Wednesdays and Thursdays on Fox 44 Evansville.  And be sure to tune into The WBKR Waking Crew each weekday morning to play "Simon Says!"  Simon Cowell could make you $100 or even $500 richer!
