Simon Cowell, the creator and also a judge on X Factor USA, has stated that he believes he has already seen a few acts which will make it into the live shows. This came after only two days of auditions last week, "I saw two, maybe three people on the first two days who I already think are going to be finalists in this competition,” said Cowell.
He added "Interestingly enough, they come from the very, very low age range, One girl was 12 or 13 and the one girl was 42 years old and they're both in their own way, incredible. And the audience loved them and I'm happy with what we've got so far." Cowell did however admit that getting the audience to be over responsive to judges comments was a bit much.
Simon said, "The audience was brilliant in Los Angeles. I may have gone a bit too far what I told them to do 'whatever they like' I mean they really took their role seriously as the fifth judge, and there were one or two times where somebody did get a no and the audience went nuts and they got through because of the audience - not every time. But if you say they're the fifth judge, then they're the fifth judge." Simon Cowell recently revealed his fears after receiving death threats.
