4. Singers Have To Audition In Front Of Large Audiences

Unlike Idol, which holds auditions in front of the judges in a room usually at some a convention center or hotel, The X-Factor did something a little different for its auditions and held them in front of a live audience, in a stadium of sorts. Seeing people embarrass themselves in front of an audience is always better than seeing them embarrass themselves in front of just a panel of judges. Collective cringe!
