Simon Cowell has been promoting his upcoming show, The X Factor, and as you can imagine, he’s having to answer to all sorts of comparisons with his former show, American Idol. Â Cowell recently said that the current judges on Idol are putting up with performances that never would have made the cut in previous seasons, and that he’s hoping The X Factor will bring back a certain strict standard to the talent show format.
Cowell went on to say that although Idol contestants tend to be formulaic, he wants people to know that contestants on the X Factor could be more distinctive, more out-there, and that artists of all kinds are encouraged to audition. Â Bring on the crazies!
