Forget what you've heard about the disappointing ratings. Forget what you've heard about the decline of Simon Cowell's popularity! As they say in England, it's all rubbish. The X-Factor debuted on FOX a couple of weeks ago and is doing what talent shows on television are SUPPOSED to do! (Sorry The Sing Off! All your groups sound exactly alike to me!) The show is finding talent and AMAZING talent at that. The preliminary auditions are in the books and the remaining contestants are ready to suit up for boot camp. All have the same goal in sight. They want to battle their way to the LIVE shows, where YOU can vote for your favorites! And, after watching the first few episodes, I am ready to share with you some of my personal favorites. Keep an eye on these folks. They truly have The X-Factor!
