Maybe some other time???
Plans to have a Lady GaGa-Madonna night on X Factor next week have been scrapped, according the show's lead judge and creator, Simon Cowell. He confirmed that he originally thought the theme would attract a lot of eyeballs to the show, but ultimately, he wanted to do something more accessible for his performers.
“I changed my mind. What I like about Wednesday’s show was the idea of someone, particularly Astro, using the whole stage without props. And I thought doing Lady Gaga and Madonna could get a bit too choreography-led and also too restrictive for someone like Astro. Rock music gives you a better chance to use the whole stage like we did on the auditions: just you and a huge platform behind you and make it like it’s your first concert.”
Oh yeah. In case you haven't guessed, that's the new theme: rock music. Not a bad theme by any means, but still not as exciting as watching a night of the Queens of Pop!
But here is the good news. Next week's musical guest will actually be one of the ladies who helped pick the top contestants. Paula Abdul revealed that Rihanna will be returning to the show to perform!
Yes!!!! Love In A Hopeless Place, puh-lease!!!
