By Reality TV World staff, 07/13/2011
Can't wait until The X Factor's fall premiere to get a peak at Fox's new American edition of the Simon Cowell reality singing competition? Watch a preview video below right now!
Fox has released a preview video of The X Factor, which will debut on Wednesday, September 21 at 8PM ET/PT.
After beginning with a "nightmare" in which Cowell imagines The X Factor contestants auditioning in a boring, nondescript room as the show's judges offer only positive feedback -- an apparent shot at this year's American Idol revamp -- the former Idol judge "wakes up" and the video switches to footage of contestants auditioning in front of a live audience as the judges interact with the audience and each other.
"Let's face it, a year is a long time. We all change our attitudes, and this is a different decade. It's not about me anymore, it's about them. I want to make people's dreams come true -- I even think about the environment... my attitude this year [is] helping others make a better tomorrow," Cowell says in the video's parody segment.
"Wow, what a horrible nightmare!" Cowell says after he wakes up.
