Getting Down With The X-Factor
It’s always a pleasure working on a show that’s fun; it’s AMAZING to work on a show I’m actually a fan of! A few weeks ago, I got a call to host the official pre-show of the US version of The X-Factor, and could barely contain my crazy-teen-fangirl-esque excitement.
Not only am I obsessed with the British version of the series, but I’ve always had a thing about wanting to work as a host or judge on a talent competition series (psychologically speaking, probably to minimize long-term damage from my own terrifying experience as a former American Idol contestant.)
Anyway, enough babbling. Every week though December, I am hosting the official Pepsi pre-show with the hilariously awesome Dan Levy and Jim Cantiello. And if you don’t blink too fast, you might occasionally catch me hosting a segment for The X-Factor network broadcast on FOX (last week I explained the interactive elements of the X Factor app to viewers.)
So if you’re an X-Factor fan, you can tune into the pre-show every Wednesday night, 7pm EST/8pm PST on www.thexfactorusa.com. You can also download the X Factor app on iTunes and watch the pre-show on your iPad or android device. If you’re not a fan of the show, you…owe me a marshmallow.
