xfactor - a hard to describe influence or quality, important element with unknown consequences, also written x-factor
the x-factor of this show is you have to be black. how else can you explain that of the final 32,of which 15 were black and 16 where white (one was that mixed group of 10), 10 out of 15 blacks made the live show and only 6 of 16 whites made it. Dexter, Simone, Astro, Stacy, Tiah, COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!! Simon would have laughed them off Idol. Simon is the biggest culprit , putting all 4 black girls through and only 1 of 4 white girls. LA put 2 of 3 black guys through and 2 of 5 white guys. Nicole put 1 of 3 white people through and 3 of 4 blacks through. not being racist, just pointing it out. maybe X-Factor should be on BET network.
