X - The X Factor - A to Z Challenge (PR)

The X Factor originated in the United Kingdom by Simon Cowell. The television music competition is now showing in various countries around the world. The programs are produced by Simon Cowell’s company, SYCOtv. The “X Factor” refers to the magical property that confers “Star” quality. I find that when you hear someone gasp in amazement because they had that special shiver come over them while listening to a certain singer, they cannot help themselves. Contestants sign up in the hope of winning a recording contract. Publicity in the last few shows generates a lot of publicity, which is spread from the winner to include others of the most talented.

The judges critique the contestants' performances. The Judges "mentor" the finalists in a certain category, helping with song selection and styling. They also participate in judging the contestants of the other categories.

I should have chosen “The Voice” yesterday, since I think it is the best of the 3 shows including American Idol. The Voice has Adam Levine, Shakira, Usher, and Blake Shelton as judges. They also mentor the singers. Each one selects a team of entrants. I never could get in to the X Factor or Idol, but the Voice is awesome. The stars repartee is great.  

As you can tell, I really like the Voice best. Shakira is an amazing singer and person, as are the others. She shares her fortune with the less fortunate and she has my respect.
