Below is a fun audio of Rachel Belle from My Northwest.com interviewing the X Factor judges upon their arrivals yesterday in Seattle. Even though she and the crowd had to wait three hours for them to come, you can feel her excitement as she only had 5 minutes with each judge. Simon and Paula remark about how “strange” their last American Idol experience was in Seattle, but, are still full of hope since the area is known for good talent. Simon looked forward to Seattle “proving a point”. He also talks of songs he never wants to hear performed again. All of this and more below!!! Great interviews even though these radio personalities in Seattle are a little annoying.

Simon Cowell, his new judging panel, and thousands of fans and contestants converged upon the Key Arena in Seattle, WA for day one of the Seattle auditioning tapings. This is the first time Simon has been in Seattle since he hosted the “American Idol” auditions in 2007. At the time, he made headlines for criticizing the talent in the area. Yesterday, he told a reporter from KPTV, “It was so bad last time, I thought it’s got to be better this time. I love the people here. As we say in England, ‘They’re up for it.’” LA Reid told the Seattle Times, ‘Seattle is a town that is known for producing a really different kind of ground breaking star, like Kurt Cobain and Quincy Jones. ‘I’m hoping that will surface in an X Factor, pop kind of way, I was listening to Jimi Hendrix in my dressing room, to find a talent like that would be to end on a real high”. Below are all four judges arriving for the event!
L.A. needs to be on the cover of GQ Magazine and SOON!

And last but not least, the ever naughty and foxy Simon.
You can view more takes at the official X Factor facebook page. They must have found several fantastic contestants because the X Factors official twitter commented that there were several “Yes’” and standing ovations from the crowd. One contestant had Nicole and Paula up on their feet DANCING!! Simon had this to say on the contestant;
