Simon Cowell says The X Factor Season 2 will focus on Pop Groups
Simon Cowell says that the next twelve months “in music” will be about pop groups — and he’ll be focusing on that for The X Factor Season 2.
In a new video released by FOX, he also says that the new host of the show will be American, and the reason why Paula Abdul had to be let go was having her on the panel reminded people of American Idol.
The X Factor will be more “different” … and more controversial! I like it.

Got Something to Add?
He's trying to set his show apart from Idol and The Voice at least. If he hires someone as lame as George Clooney's beard - then I think I'll tune out. Save her for the geriatric set of Dancing With The Stars.
Haha, he must think that boy-bands are the in thing right now since One Direction hit it big int he world and "The Wanted" are here.
chess, calm down. it's just a stupid TV show. as is the Voice and everything else. what's your damage?
So they are going to force feed us the US versions of Lil Mix and One Direction. Hopefully The Voice can find a solution to plummeting ratings caused by the lame battle rounds and give XF-US the burial it deserves.
@Mikhail XO Well, considering how big One Direction is now, this doesn't surprise me at all.
@Mikhail XO He was one of the few interesting things about the show. In fact though - this is why he DID start gaining a following. VFTW and ONTD loved him. Even some of the MJ frau started liking him.
Simon seems to be having some sort of late onset mid life crisis. Between letting Cecilia put out to the press that they were looking for "glamorous boy and girl hosts" (how tacky), the constant weekly news of pop tarts rejecting offers, then all the hilarious stuff every other day in The Daily Mail - he seems like he's losing it. I mean, the latest with him "admitting his crush" on another make up artist who looks like Cheryl Cole" is cringe worthy. But hey, if he needs a beard again for some reason, it's cheaper than actually pretending to date them and have to buy them crap ;-D
