Simon Cowell has promised that the U.S. premiere of The X Factor is going to be "way bigger" than the biggest TV event you can imagine.
But now it's time for you to be the judge of that.
Check out the two-and-a-half-minute promo that just premiered during the 2011 MLB All-Star Game on Fox , and fill us in on just how excited you're getting for the return of Simon and Paula Abdul, all that fresh talent, the unforeseen twists and all the joy you get from watching American Idol cutthroat singing competitions.
Or as Simon puts it...
"This is everything you would dream of doing if you were making a TV show," he says. "There is nothing more I could want. In fact, today I was thinking, is there anything else I need? Then, literally, a helicopter was transported past me in a truck, and I think I said we've got it all. This is why you make TV shows. This is everything I've always dreamt of doing."
But is is what we've always "dreamt" of watching?
