Cheryl and fellow X Factor judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and LA Reid are expected to attend Fox’s Upfronts on May 16th to promote The X Factor for the Fall TV premiere schedule. To be confirmed but it is very likely at the moment they will attend according to a PR.
X Factor judges–Simon, Paula, L.A., and Cheryl will be in NY on Monday for Fox’s Up Fronts before heading to Chicago for more auditions.
The event will be held at 4pm in New Beacon Theatre.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Fox entertainment chief Kevin Reilly has some big shows to launch: the pricey time-travel epic Terra Nova and Simon Cowell’s return to U.S. TV with The X Factor. Expect Cowell to engage in a major charm offensive, with Paula Abdul by his side, and to pretend he’s not obsessed with the ratings of American Idol and/or The Voice. With few hours open on the fall schedule (the News Corp. net doesn’t program at 10 p.m.), Reilly likely will tout the success of the rebooted Idol and stress the network’s No. 1 status among advertiser-beloved younger viewers. Expect Fox to trot out stars including Cowell, So You Think You Can Dance’s Cat Deeley and some Idol names.
