The X Factor: Season 2, Week 1:: Season Premiere!

Sep 13, 2012

This week on The X Factor it was the second season premiere, and audiences got to get to know the two new celebrity judges, Demi Lovato and Britney Spears! Find out more about the season premiere of The X Factor, Season 2, Week 1 which aired September 12, 2012 in the Kidzworld Recap! 

New Judges

There are fresh faces this season on the X Factor judges panel with veteran pop star Britney Spears and teen queen Demi Lovato replacing Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul. Both women seemed excited and nervous to be stepping back into the spotlight, but once they settled in they found their groove in no time. Britney Spears may have built her name on being a sweet Southern girl next door, but she surprised everyone by giving Simon Cowell a run for his money when it came to dealing hard blows and telling the straight up truth about someone's talent. Demi adds a youthful, fun element to the panel to spice things up and Simon and L.A. tell it like it is like the industry professionals they are. 

Auditions

This week auditions took place in San Francisco, California, Austin,Texas and Providence, Rhode Island and there was no shortage of talent crooners and straight up crazies - in fact one wasky old man spitefully told Demi Lovato that at least he doesn't use auto tune when she told him his bizarre act wasn't working!

The show started off with a gorgeous 21-year-old Paige Thomas, a nursing student and mother, singing an outstanding rendition of "I'm Going Down" with Simon calling her "the full package." She's in! Skater band Emblem3 surprised the judges by killing it with an original number called "Sunset Boulevard" and also received green light for boot camp - although their snickering about the previous boy-band failure contestant seemed less than kind-hearted. As soon as Reed Deming walked in people were calling him a Bieber-lookalike and his voice didn't disappoint either, sending him to the next level. Janell Garcia tapped into her inner rock goddess and wowed the judges when she belted out her version of Grace and the Nocturnals "Ooh La La," which also got her a whole panel of "yes."

Memorable Moments

Not everyone who got through this week was a standout singing talent - Quatrele Da'an Smith walked onto the stage in a bridal getup and sang "Born This Way" and was so entertaining they all said yes! And one singer had a special connection with Demi when she talked about her own "stay strong" tattoo and problems with bullying, Jillian Jensen channeled her emotions into a heartbreaking version of Jessie J's "Who You Are" which left everyone in the room in tears - and sent her to the next round.

Demi wasn't the only one to have a connection that night, a former duet partner of Britney's auditioned after years out of the industry, and despite their history together she had to tell him no although it was clearly difficult.

Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon – Ek Baar Phir 23rd April 2014 The episode starts with Astha telling Shlok that she came to get a pen. Shlok looks in his laptop. Employee comes and asks him to come for the board meeting. Shlok leaves from his cabin. Shlok gives the presentation. Astha smiles looking at him. Shlok is surprised to see I love you Astha with Astha’s photo on the projector. He gets shocked and asks his employee to go. They smile. Astha tells Shlok that he confesses his feelings infront of everyone. Well done. Shlok gets angry at her. He says, those three words are not important for me. Astha says, it matters to me a lot. When you don’t know these three words then how will you know my feelings. Shlok says, it is waste to talk to you. Astha says, ok don’t tell me anything. She says sorry and leaves. Astha is walking on the road and thinks to take an auto. She says, he won’t confess his feelings. She is about to take an auto. Shlok comes and takes her in his car. Astha says, I don’t want to go with you. She gets sad thinking he will not say I love you. Shlok looks at her and stops the car. He gets down and Astha follows him. Astha asks him to come. Shlok shouts Astha I love you……………….. I love you so much……………………Astha gets surprised and happy. Shlok smiles. Saiyaave Ab Raasta Dikhade Tu…………………plays. Astha gets shy. Shlok asks, why are you feeling shy? Astha hugs him happily. Shlok too is happy and smiles. They close their eyes while the hug continues to be everlasting. They are standing on the middle of the road while the song Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon plays……….. Anjali is waiting for Astha. She wonders where they might be stuck. Sojal says, Astha don’t care about time. Anjali thinks to call Astha. Shlok is driving the car and holding Astha’s hand. Astha gets Anjali’s call. She asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, no. You won’t talk to anybody and switches off the phone. Anjali gets annoyed as she thinks Astha rejected her call. Shlok gets romantic and says I hold your hand for life. Astha gets shy again. Shlol says, you looks cute when you gets shy. Iss Pyaar Ko Plays………………………………………………… Shlok looks lovingly at her. Astha and Shlok come home. Shlok holds her again and gets romantic. Astha asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, I didn’t hold your hand to leave you. What is your problem. When I am loving you, you are not liking it. He says, I am loving you infront of everyone. Astha says, not infront of everyone. Shlok asks her to give him a book about the dos and donts. They come inside. Anjali asks Astha where is your phone. Astha says it was lost. Anjali looks at her phone. Astha says, battery was low. Niranjan asks Anjali to do the rituals first. Anjali asks Astha to do the grah pravesh. Astha looks at Shlok. They enter together while Shlok holding her hand. Anjali makes her wear veil and asks her to be in veil until morning. She says, everyone can see you except Shlok. Shlok gets angry. Anjali asks her to change her saree and wear the given saree. She asks her to stay in the guest room tonight, to be away from Shlok. Astha says ok. She goes inside with Anjali. Astha gets ready and thinks what is this ritual. Today Shlok confessed his feeling and I have to be away from him. Shlok looks at Astha’s photo in his laptop. He recalls saying I love you Astha. He comes out of his room. Varad stops her. Shlok says, I want to see Astha. Varad says, Aayi said you can’t see her. Shlok says, I will see her anyhow. Varad says, all the best. Astha is in the guest room and is restless. She thinks to send voice message to Shlok. She messages him I miss you Shlok. Anjali comes and asks her to come for the Moon Puja. Shlok thinks how to see Astha’s one glimpse. Astha looks at moon in the water and do the puja with Anjali and Sojal. Servant comes and informs Anjali that Niranjan is calling her. Anjali goes. Astha is doing the puja and prays for Shlok’s long life. Shlok comes there and says I will see my moon. Astha covers her face under the veil and runs. Shlok runs after her. Astha veil gets removed. Shlok is standing behind her. Astha hugs him and says you can’t see my face. Shlok says, I came to meet you alone. I will see your face at any cost. Astha runs. Precap: Shlok sees Astha’s face in the water. He says I am happy. Astha smiles. Neither your ritual have break nor my wish.

Intentionally bad intended to be comical.  Me and my brother watched that and stopped about 30 minutes in. Ever watch Metal Tornado. We watched that all the way through but not Sharknado. It was worse than it intended to be.
