Victoria has been encouraging me to to audition for Simon Cowell’s new American version of the British show X-Factor. The nearest auditions will be held in Miami on April 7th, and that’s close enough to make us think seriously about it.
At the moment I’m kind of “iffy” on the whole thing. Given the realities of our culture, it’s likely the only people who have half a chance are either the young and sexy or old farts with incredible voices. I’m not young, sexy or in possession of an incredible voice. So… what do I have? Do I have that “X factor” that could make up for other shortcomings?
