If there’s anything Simon Cowell is great at, it’s talking about how great he is at things. And of course how not-great other people are at things. This 8-minute X Factor featurette gives us a taste of Cowell’s typical prickly manner as well as a few words from his cantkerous match, L.A. Reid, and his lovely lady judges, Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. It’s certainly not a cookie-cutter copy of American Idol, but it looks like it packs plenty of excitement.
See for yourself and don’t forget to catch the premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
