X Factor Renewed For Third Season

I can’t imagine a better way for reality TV junkies to start their Tuesday morning other than reveling in the recently confirmed news that FOX’s X Factor will be returning for a third season.

Though it is still unclear if Britney Spears or Demi Lovato will be back for the third season, FOX’s alternative entertainment president Mike Darnell made a few comments, which seemed to indicate a favorable push towards the two.

“The format changes are working, the contestants are unbelievably talented, and Britney and Demi ” alongside Simon and L.A. Reid ” have brought an incredibly fun new chemistry to the judges’ panel that our fans really love.

Also weighing in on the renewal was everyone’s favorite love to hate him judge, Simon Cowell.

I couldn’t be happier about The X Factor already being renewed for another season, Cowell said, I am so proud of the show and the team who have made it this season. I want to thank our incredible sponsors for their support and creativity, and FOX for going out of their way to do everything they can to make this show a success. Most importantly, I have to personally thank our amazing fans for the support and enthusiasm they have given to The X Factor. Our main commitment will always be to find great talent, and let’s not forget, we are now days away from our first live shows. The gloves are off! Expect fireworks!

The X Factor is as much a ratings seeking show as anything these days, priding itself no longer on just the talent it showcases, but catfights, crying and breakdowns.

Simon Cowell And Sony Release Custom X Headphones

X Factor judge Simon Cowell has recently teamed up with Sony to design a line of high-end, studio-quality headphones. Cowell’s newest business venture has him following in the steps of Dr. Dre, whose custom line of Beats headphones recently netted him the top spot on the list of the world’s richest hip-hop artists. Cowell’s custom X Headphones will feature memory foam earpads that form to the shape of the listener’s ears. The large, swiveling earpads also reportedly block most outside noise and provide enhanced low-end bass reception. Speaking of the headphones’ quality, Cowell stated, I needed a serious tool to be able to do my job. I’ve tried all of [the headphones], literally every single one. And I just wanted something better. The rest of the world’s headphones were seen crying as Cowell left a nearby Best Buy where he had told them that they sounded like one-year-olds making babbling noises. The X Headphones will retail for $299.99, and will reportedly lack a feature that injects harsh criticism of whatever god-awful song you’re currently singing along to in your horrendous, mouse“like excuse for a voice.
