When you hear ‘The X-Factor’ what comes to mind? I wondered if there was a meaning before the now well-known TV Talent Show was aired, so I went to Google. I learned that it is hard to define, but the Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Dictionary suggests that the meaning refers to “a quality that you cannot describe that makes someone very special”. I don’t think I had ever heard or read that before.
For me, The X-Factor is a “must-see” weekly reality talent TV show. It is a show of talent seekers who compete with one another to become the nation's next singing sensation. I love music, and am amazed of the raw talent that is showcased. The first program aired was from the U.K., created by Simon Cowell, often referred to as a ‘cranky judge’. In my opinion, he has an uncanny ear for the nuances of presentation, and gives useful and unflinching advice to competitors who have a goal of not only winning the competition, but striving to be a professional performer in their personal genre.
It is not the only music talent show that I watch on TV, and my husband tolerates the music stuff for me. I appreciate it too, and not to be in competition of his kindness, but I tolerate all the sports stuff that he loves to watch.
