We have been waiting for what seems like years for Fox (and of course Simon Cowell) to announce the lineup for the new American X Factor series.
Will Cheryl Cole land a spot on the judging panel? Will Dermot O’Leary present? Will Simon manage to secure a star big enough to rival American Idol’s Jennifer Lopez and Steve Tyler?
Well it seems the wait is almost over. We were doing our usual checks on the official Fox website tonight when we saw the following post:
It’s what we’ve all been waiting for.
The X Factor. Airing on Fox this Fall.
And we’re on a mission to find America’s top undiscovered singing talent.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for some BIG X Factor News.
The timing makes sense. Simon Cowell promised fans at the National Television Awards on the 26th January that he would make an official announcement within two weeks. It seems that tomorrow will be that day.
Two promotional commercials were aired during the Superbowl last night with Simon appearing alone, teasing viewers of what’s to come later this year.
UPDATE: Seems like the “BIG” announcement was about a $5 million Sony recording contract, no judges announced.
