The new show from Simon Cowell, X Factor has premiered here in the United States, and fans are thrilled with the results. Much talent has been discovered, and it is apparent that the winner of the show will be someone who has talent, and that has the potential to become the next big star. On the newest episodes of the show, Pharrell Williams joined Paula Abdul to act as a guest mentor to help her decide which acts should move forward to the next phase of the competition. As Digital Spy reports, Pharrell Williams said of X Factor: “You look in the eyes of every last one of those kids and they all want it so bad.
I look at The X Factor and it really reminds me of what we’ve always had in our hearts in N*E*R*D – really not accepting no for an answer and kind of shoving the yes down the throats of the powers that be.” Advertisement Each judge on the show was assigned a group of hopefuls, and Paula Abdul’s group was that of the “groups,” and there is much talent represented on the show. It was also obvious that the opportunity to pursue their dream of becoming a star is something that is not only important, but also something that they are hoping will turn into a reality.
