After a gazillion promos, “The X Factor” has given the media a 12-minute teaser reel with the opener of the show introducing the judges/coaches. Then we see samplings of bad/good singers.
There’s a sassy younger girl and a 42-year-old single mom who is doing this as her last chance at glory. There’s one contestant with way too much attitude. Otherwise, it’s too brief to really judge whether the coaches are going to work in combo or individually. Okay, we already know Paula and Simon quite well so that’s a given.
And if you enjoy raucous crowds booing or cheering contestants in a ridiculously over the top way (like “America’s Got Talent,”) this is for you.
We’ll have to wait til Sept. 21 to see the entire first episode and see how this all plays out.
-And there’s another singing show, too, on NBC: “The Sing Off” gets its first full blown season after two shorter December stints. Here’s what one would call a massive group sing on Pink’s “F-in Perfect.”
