The X-Factor First Look: A New Simon Cowell?!?

by at . Comments

It’s not about me anymore. It’s about them. I want to make people’s dream come true. I even think about the environment.

So states Simon Cowell at the outset of the following trailer for The X Factor, the country's first extended look at the reunion of this judge and Paula Abdul, as well as Fox's hope for a fall version of American Idol.

Don't worry, though, the change doesn't last long.

The preview quickly jumps into scenes from the actual show, set to a classic rock song and featuring Simon at his snarkiest. We also get our first looks at panelists Nicole Scherzinger and L.A. Reid, as well as host Steve Jones.

It's impossible to believe this won't be a mega hit when it premieres in September. Check out the extended promo now.
