x factor usa

so the story about the x factor usa auditions returning has gone quite now, which was to be expected since the final of the x factor uk this year, it was on the build up to the final that this story was quite big in the entertainment news, but now the x factor series has finished for another year, the rumors are slowing down.

the real test will be to see that in 2015 if this story about simon cowell being in talks with fox tv about a news series of the x factor usa starts again, or if any of the rumors are confirmed as having some truth behind them.

the x factor usa might be returning again

so there might be a chance that the x factor usa might be returning again, though it is still early days and with x factor you do get these stories, but this is something we will just have to wait and see either way.

the story is that fox tv is thinking about renewing the x factor usa, simon cowell has denied the rumor, but that is to be expected, but this could potentially be great news for american fans of the x factor who were disappointed by the shows early demise, and ended up missing there chance to audition for the x factor usa when it ended after just 3 seasons.

so if fox does renew the x factor usa it could be as soon as 2015, obviously it would be too late to save the x factor usa 2014, but next year or the year after with a 2016 series of x factor usa could also be a possible return date, but we will just have to wait and see how this story develops over the next few months, and how much validity it actually holds.

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.

united states america x factor website

x factor usa 2014, how to audition for life in general, just like if you are looking to go get a job, you can use the same concept that you would when applying for something like the x factor usa.

as far as i can tell pretty much everyone hates job interviews, and the might go for a lot of people who try out for talent contests.

so no one really, besides the odd exception, enjoys being interviewed, because that is what is basically happening when you are getting judged, hence why simon cowell etc were called the x factor judges.

but there are things you can do to make these kinds of processes easier, so some of these might sound obvious, but, even though they are essential when applying or registering to anything in life, so if you have trouble in these areas these few tips might come in handy.

1/ prepare you audition presentations in advance.
2/ do your research, see what other successful people do and adapt that into your act.
3/ when in doubt simplify, and/or go back to the drawing board.
4/ honestly evaluate your progress.
5/ when you audition etc enter the room with confidence.
6/ so learn body language, something used be successful people.
7/ learn how to focus your mind.
8/ believe in yourself.

x factor 2014 usa auditions blog - how to prepare for talent shows the basics

x factor 2014 usa auditions blog - how to prepare for talent shows the basics, so just some thoughts on what you need to be doing if you plan on applying for a talent show, just a few of the important things that need to be focused on the most, so you can be successful with auditioning for talent contests.

1. get your song choice correct

you need to make sure you have the right song choices, if not sure get other people to check out how you sing your chosen song, to double check that you got the song choice correct.

3. have a story prepared

part of having a successful auditions is first impressions, so appearance is very important, but how do contestants always meet the judges?, the judges ask them, tell us a little bit about yourself, this is your story, so it needs to be true, but you also can rehearse this in advance, so you have a clear and concise story to tell the judges, and this is getting your first impressions spot on as you first get judged.

What was Great about X Factor USA 2014 Auditions and why the show was good

What was Great about X Factor USA 2014 Auditions and why the show was good, well i always liked watching the x factor usa on tv, and some of the people who auditioned had amazing voices they really did, and of course some not so much.

but was that the reason i liked x factor usa so much, partly, because it was not just about who was the best, of course the best singers made it to the final and won the show, but the real reason i liked the x factor usa, and thought it had some good merits about it.

was, because it gave everyone at least a chance to audition, i always had seen this as a way for people to fulfill there dreams, or at least the illusion of such, which in that regard it was not so much who has the best voice, but the hope and the chance of at least giving it a go, and at least for a while who knows, and so you had lots of people audition, was really a good concept really the x factor usa.

The X Factor USA 2014 Auditions blog - can't sing musical based on judge simon cowell

The X Factor USA 2014 Auditions blog - can't sing musical based on judge simon cowell's rise to success and life story, well worth checking out if you are in london.

the x factor usa auditions and judge simon cowell

the x factor usa and judge simon cowell, this is a interesting video, looked like nbc could have picked up the x factor usa 2014, simon cowell was reported to have tried to re-home the x factor usa onto the nbc tv station.

this would have saved the show, if simon could have moved the x factor from fox tv over onto the nbc channel, that would probably have been a good move for nbc to take up the x factor usa, maybe in the future they could relaunch the x factor usa.

so it seems simon cowell did try to save the x factor usa from being axed, but it did not happen in the end though.

so the writing was on the wall for the x factor 2014 auditions can anything replace the show

so the writing was on the wall for the x factor 2014 auditions, last year and early this year it was looking ominous that the x factor usa might be near the end, they did not really update the official x factor usa website after the series had ended.

so they did not update the x factor usa website or put up any application forms either, and as this went on into february things did not look good, now that fox has this empty slot in there tv programming, what are they going to replace it with.

also what will replace the x factor usa, now there is a gap, it would be a good idea for another tv network to try something similar next year and they might take off where the x factor left.

the x factor usa will not be coming back in 2015 the show is fully cancelled now

the x factor usa will not be coming back in 2015 the show is fully cancelled now, once cancelled the odds of fox bringing the x factor back are close to zero.

there was a slim chance of hope that that could be possible but the word is more likely impossible, which is a shame, they should of tried 'resting' the show first to see if that would help but after 3 seasons they must have felt it necessary to end completely.

leaving no time either to apply to audition for the voice usa or the american idol so a double whammy for this year.

fox axes the x factor usa 2014 auditions are now cancelled

fox axes the x factor usa 2014 auditions are now cancelled, too late to save now, the bad news is that fox has axed this year x factor usa, it looked ominous when simon cowell said he was leaving to go judge the x factor uk, now it is confirmed and fox has said that it has cancelled the x factor usa.

looks like it is time to start looking for some other singing ions this year, x factor usa is no more, big shame if you had been waiting to audition this year also, but now the x factor usa is finished and there will not be a season 4 of the x factor usa this year.

simon cowell leaving the judging seat to go back to the uk judges seat

simon cowell is leaving the x factor usa judging seat to go back to the uk x factor 2014 this year it would seem, well it has been now confirmed that simon will be judging the x factor uk 2014, what this means for the x factor usa though is unknown at the moment.

but it is confirmed that cowell is judging the x factor uk this year, so it would be easy to presume now that simon cowell has left the x factor usa, with immediate effect, because he can judge both shows right.

this does not mean that the x factor usa has been cancelled because nothing has been said, and it is thought that fox tv and the x factor usa are negotiating there 2014 contract, but it definitely looks like you will not see simon cowell judging the x factor usa this year eitherway.

so look for a completely new judging panel at the x factor usa 2014, and probably a revised different looking format as well.

still no x factor usa 2014 audition application forms online anywhere

there is still no x factor usa 2014 audition application forms online anywhere, this is not looking too good, even though simon cowell has quashed rumors the x factor usa could be over.

just makes one wonder why all the waiting when the x factor uk online application forms went up before there season had even finished.

the only possible explanation for taking so long is that simon is negotiating next years contracts with fox tv, and so until the contracts are negotiated, then we have to wait for the time being before we can apply and they put up the online forms again.

think the x factor usa 2014 auditions application form will be available

at best guess think the x factor usa 2014 auditions application form will be available in february, hopefully, but for some reason this year it could be later, i think simon cowell has not got his contract discussions sorted with fox tv yet, and this could cause it to be a while until they release the application forms for season 4 of the x factor usa.
