Wait wait wait… a musical about a show that looks for the next big pop star?
We dig it!
And apparently so does X Factor's main daddy Simon Cowell, who attended a workshop of the under-construction project back in January!
The stern judge tweeted:
The X Factor musical — which apparently includes a Simon Cowell-type character played by Alexander Hanson in the workshop — tells the tale of a young African American girl living in a trailer park with her ill grandfather who auditions for The X Factor and, well…
Wins or doesn't win.
We don't want to ruin the surprise!
Soooo… can Britney Spears be in it?!?! PLEASE AND THANKS!
VERY excited to see what comes of this intriguing concept!
