If Simon didn’t get to your question, you can post it on his Facebook wall.

@TeamCherylCher what kind of winner are you hoping for to kickstart the series?
Simon: We hope 2 find an artist who can compete with people in the charts. Would love to find the new Lady Gaga. No Rules.

@AlexBellizzi what are you most excited for about XFactor USA?

@ajwooster Andrew J Wooster Simon, what makes X-Factor different or better than AI, so it’s not “just another” talent show. Besides you of course… LOL

@shelliow Shelley K. Would you like one of my After Eight choccies?!

@Ibeawuchi Ibeawuchi: Are ‘Covers’ To A Song. Safer Than Singing An Original

Simon: September 2011
