x factor to allow artists with management contracts to audition

This is HUGE!

Today, Fox sent out a press release in which they made the MAJOR announcement that artists with management contracts will NOW be allowed to audition for The X Factor!

Here's what Simon Cowell had to say about it:

"We wanted to change a few things this year, so starting with the auditions, we’ve torn up the rulebook again. Even if you have management you can still enter, and we are making it easier by extending the online auditions and taking the MyStudio booths to even more cities. You can enter as many times as you want and come to any of the cities, too. We’re here to discover stars from all music styles including groups. I really believe a group can
win this show!"

And here's more from L.A. Reid:

"In the music industry, when you’re looking for new talent you can discover it anywhere. THE X FACTOR is opening this up to go further than anyone has before, and that’s what it takes, so I can’t wait to see what amazing talent we might find. I urge people to go out and audition, this is the real deal."

According to the press release, there are "limited restrictions" with regards to this new rule…but it definitely sounds like up-and-coming artists who already have managers should have no problem auditioning!

How do U feel about this? Do U think Simon is making the right move here???

    Great, now this show is going to be all about the battle of the professional singers. I want to see the unknown make it to the top, not pros. I predict a flop next season.

    They Eliminated Terrel last season and that was a big mistake for the ratings…. Simon you should think from the viewer perpective too and drop your ego and blind self-righteousness cause you re losing it if not lost it already!!! and whats up with eliminating what would have been the winner "Tora Woloshin"!!! if you re still the same the show should just be renamed the Simon Cowell Flop-Factor.
