Naturally, with two new awesome judges, and, of course, the ever-unapologetic Simon Cowell, who America loves hates to hate love, we expect nothing less! Teen sensation Demi Lovato and pop icon Britney Spears join veteran judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid in their search for an out-of-this-world superstar.
Solo artists and music groups (aged 12-years-old on up, again) who are bold enough to face the superstar panel of judges and the Fifth Judge - that means YOU, our faithful audience - will vie to win that coveted $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music.
Tune in on Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 8/7c on FOX to see who brought the house down with their vocal ability, charisma, and stage presence, and who just didn't make the cut.
The competition is fierce this time around and not just for the contestants, but also between the judges - so expect heartbreak and jubilation in equal measure! But ultimately it is you, the fans, who decide who really has THE X FACTOR and a shot at winning the big prize.
Last season, with the super-talented Melanie Amaro crowned the 2011 winner, Simon came out on top. But will one of the other judges dethrone him this year? If so, don't expect him to go down without a fight!
Tune in for THE X FACTOR Season 2 two-night premiere special on Wednesday, Sept. 12 and Thursday, Sept. 13 at 8/7c only on FOX.
