The World Premiere Preview of the U.S. version of ‘The X Factor’ premiered during the MLB 82nd All-Star game earlier this evening. The ad features Simon Cowell going shockingly soft on the contestants, talking about how he “wants to make people’s dreams come true” and has an attitude this year “helping others to make a better tomorrow.” Mr. Nasty then wakes up to tell himself, “Wow, what a horrible nightmare.”
‘The X Factor’ premieres Wednesday, September 21st and Thursday, September 22nd at 8/7c on FOX. The preview, featuring Simon and his fellow judges Paula Abdul, LA Reid and Nicole Scherzinger, has since been removed at YouTube.
