LeAnn Rimes swung by "The X Factor" Wednesday night to duet with a young contestant, but the reaction hasn't been kind.
The 30-year-old singer was tasked with performing a rendition of "How Do I Live Without You" with Carly Rose Sonenclar, yet Rimes' actions and vocal rough patches led some to conclude that she may have been less than sober.
Considering that Simon Cowell already radically shuffled the hired talent on "The X Factor," it wouldn't be a great sign if he had to do it again.
Thankfully, he doesn't have to worry about new judge Britney Spears disappearing on him. The 30-year-old pop star, who signed on for a reported single season of the Fox reality competition for $15 million, has found herself pretty taken with her new job.
As she relayed to press at Monday's "X Factor" finalists party, she'll "definitely" be back for another season.
"It's a lot of fun. It's different from anything I've ever done before, but it's a lot of fun," Spears continued. "We get to sit back and get to be entertained, and it's just wonderful. It's really cool."
Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez made their big entry as hosts of "The X Factor" Wednesday night with the first live show.
While their hosting abilities were fine and dandy, it was Kardashian who really grabbed attention, especially from judge Simon Cowell.
Dressed in a fitted black pencil skirt and a fairly sheer purple blouse with a plunging neckline, Kardashian looked great - and chilly.
It didn't take long for "The X Factor" to seal the deal with Khloe Kardashian Odom and Mario Lopez.
Earlier this month, a source close to the show told CNN that the pair were in final negotiations to become hosts on the Fox singing competition, and on Tuesday, Fox announced that the two are officially on board.
Sophie Simmons didn't make it into the Top 24 after this week's round of eliminations on "The X Factor," but the daughter of KISS rocker Gene Simmons isn't letting the elimination deter her dreams.
The 20-year-old singer auditioned because she's determined to make it in the music industry without the aid of her famous dad, and she told The Hollywood Reporter that she's not going to give up now.
As Freddie Combs took the stage on Thursday’s episode of “The X Factor,” judges L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell appeared to lock eyes with each other.
The 540-pound, wheelchair-bound minister from Greeneville, Tennessee, who said he almost died in 2009 when he weighed in at 920 pounds, dedicated his rendition of “Wind Beneath My Wings” to his wife of almost 16 years.
