strictly come dancing 2014 versus x factor uk

there is a popularity competition between two uk talent shows, with strictly come dancing and the x factor 2014 uk, for the last 3 years strictly come dancing has beaten x factor uk in the ratings, now with simon cowell back from the usa, and a new format the x factor is expecting to beat strictly come dancing in the ratings stakes for the first time since simon cowell left for the x factor usa.

though these really are two completely different talent competition formats, strictly come dancing being about ball room dancing, whereas the x factor of course being a singing competition, and one other major difference strictly dancing only features celebrities in the dancing competition whereas as the x factor is open to the public/amaetures, and so in that regard very different formats, but it is still to be seen if the x factor uk can win out in the ratings stakes over bbc1's strictly come dancing.

x factor usa judge simon cowell to return to american idol 2015?

you might not have seen the last of simon cowell just yet, there are rumors that the x factor usa judge might be making a surprise return to the usa next year to judge the american idol 2015.

after this years and last year poor ratings on the american idol, tv executives feel they need to do something drastic to try and shake up the american idol format to bring new life into the show, and one of there ideas is to have a return of the old judging panel for the show, with a return of judges simon cowell, paula abdul and randy jackson.

these are the original three judges for idol, and had a long stint on the show together for a total of 8 years, also when american idol had its best ratings as well, but can you revive the talent shows when there ratings or popularity has waned a little.

at the moment the auditions for american idol 2015 are taking place over the next few months, the first taken place a few days ago in minneapolis.

x-factor-usa winners alex and sierra

previous x factor usa winners alex and sierra have released there new single called "scarecrow" this is dubbed a lyric video, and is based on two puppets, so the video is based on two people trying to overcome obstacles, these two people are puppets.

it has had really good reviews, it seems to me that it kind of has overtones to alex and sierra in reality as well, because it is a similar theme as to how they won the x factor usa.

maybe alex and sierra since winning the x factor usa or when winning the x factor usa, had to act like puppets slightly to be successful and win, just seems to kind of be that theme to there new lyric video song.

american idol usa auditions

x factor blog, next big talent show you will be able to audition for in the usa this year in 2014, will be the american idol 2015 auditions, this is because not long after the current season ends the auditions for next year start this year.

that is how the american idol works, its auditions are a the year before the show starts, because the show starts early 2015, so they have to have there auditions in 2014.

last year the auditions took place over 13 cities, so a really good chance to have a audition venue near you with a wide spread across the usa, these were the audition cities for last year as a example of how many places you can get to audition in and a good chance they will be a audition city near you- salt lake city utah, san francisco california, detroit michigan, atlanta georgia, boston massachusetts, austin texas and omaha nebraska.

compared to the x factor usa open auditions, the good thing with american idol is it gives so many locations and cities for people to get a chance to audition at each year, they cover most of the usa, whereas when the x factor usa did there auditions, there was probably only 5 or so big open auditions cities, this meant it was really difficult for a lot of people in the usa to be able to travel to one of these auditions.

so if you was looking for some new talent show options this year, instead of the x factor usa, you now have the option of trying out for the american idol instead, something to consider.

the start dates for the auditions last year was around july, not saying that the start dates and locations for american idol will be the same this year, but just using those previous dates and locations to get a idea on what will be happening this year, so if you are not thinking you would need to get practicing to audition this year, you might want to get practicing now if you consider that you could apply for american idol in a few months time.

best usa auditions youtube video

found this are it does have some of best usa auditions on this youtube video, but not 2014 like it says in its title, but from the last few years of x-factor-usa as you can tell from the old judges line up judging these acts.

well worth watching for some x factor usa nostalgia, as that is all that is really left of the xfactor usa now, but anyway it was good while it lasted at least.
