After rumours about Simon Cowell to quit the X Factor last month the music mogul has promised to find another X Factor winner who can achieve success on an international level.
In a recent interview with the ITV website recently, Simon predicted that unique talent will have the best chance of winning the competition this year which returns to ITV1 on August 22.
When Simon Cowell was asked to name the qualities he is looking for, he replied: “The X Factor this year is relevance. You know, you should be able to find somebody who there is a genuine gap in the market for.
“And we’ve proven through this process that you can find someone who’s going to sell records all over the world. So not to make that your benchmark is a huge, huge mistake.”
Other judges like Louis Walsh are looking for other strong points in individuals such as stamina and determination.
He explained: “You have to have everything to do well in The X Factor. It’s hard work for these people.
“They don’t realise how much it’s going to take out of them to go out and do the live show. The live show is very stressful, it’s very draining, it’s a lot of hard work [and] you have to be totally into your craft.”
Although The X Factor is usually a good show this year is set to be something more special.
