According to X Factor’s Official Twitter, the audience had “amazing energy” for the 2nd day and night of audition tapings at the BankCenter in Coral Gables, Florida. Some of the auditions must have been amazing. It’s said one of the auditions brought Nicole Scherzinger to tears. Simon is said to have said “Genius” too to one of them. There were also two standing ovations and the judges were brought to their feet. One of them was also described as being “spooky”.
Overall, TV Guide is calling this week’s tapings as being a showcase of the judges personalities. Paula Abdul remarked Simon has got a little softer. In fact, when the judges introduced themselves at the beginning of the auditions (Tuesday), Abdul sat on Cowell’s lap and said, “I’m in love with Simon.” Read more below on all of the judges and how they interacted.
But Cowell showed few signs of being a softie as contestants faced him at the BankUnited Center. It’s becoming apparent that music producer Reid joins Cowell as the harsh critics, while Scherzinger and Abdul are the kinder, gentler judges. Cowell and Reid were especially blunt to a young guy whose dream is to appear on Glee; they also likened one duo to karaoke singers.
Cowell also playfully poked fun at Scherzinger, who has easily stepped into the judge’s chair vacated by Cheryl Cole. During the performance of a female quartet, the judges were trying to figure out who was the star of the foursome. Cowell explained that there has to be a star, and pointed to Scherzinger and her role in The Pussycat Dolls as an example.
“There has to be someone greedy in the group,” he said. “I wasn’t greedy,” Scherzinger responded. “It wasn’t about that.” Then Abdul broke in and mended fences: “She stole the limelight and that’s why she’s here on this panel.”
Below is a video of the judges entering the BankCenter last night. The energy of the audience is ‘indeed’ amazing.
And here is a sneak peek into one of the auditions.
So, now the judging panel travels to Dallas, Texas on June 21st and 22nd for the next audition tapings. If you live or are in the area, be sure to get your free tickets HERE.Tags: L.A.
