Whataya have to say to that, Simon?
During a recent interview, Randy Jackson opened up about X Factor and flat out said that it's COPYING American Idol:
"Simon and Paula are dear friends of ours. They started this whole Idol tradition with us. I think that Idol's still the best TV show that's come on anywhere. We're the original, we kind of invented this whole game that everybody's now copying, and I say that they're copying it, right?"
"So, I mean, listen, I mean, Simon's done well with his show, probably not the expectations that he wanted, but you know, we wish him well and you know we've gone on with this and done well."
Ouchie! Between this and Randy's comments about The Voice from back in May, he's clearly having issues with ALL singing competition shows that aren't Idol!
Do U think that X Factor is copying Idol???
