So, do you think Janet Jackson is a big step up from Paula Abdul as far as star power for the X Factor? At first glance, you would say yes, but then you realize that Paula Abdul has been doing this judging thing for awhile and has a huge built in audience and does Janet have more of that going for her than Paula? As far as musical talent, Janet blows Paula away, but I'm not sure if anything can just fix the fact that audiences just do not seem to like the format and in The Voice have already found their second favorite singing show. Between The Voice and Idol four nights a week, I think people are exhausted by the time X Factor comes on.
Oh, and good job to Anderson Cooper for sandbagging Janet on the question. We need more of that in celebrity interviewing.
