Recently, I was lucky enough to attend one on my own
Newark Macaroni Kid events. I was so excited to find the event
and even happier to check it out with my two sons. We all went
to the audition taping of The X-Factor! The X-Factor is a reality television singing competition created by Simon Cowell. It will premiere in September 2011 on FOX network.
The competition is open to solo singers or groups and has n
o upper age limit. You do have to be 12 years old to compete. Tonight we did see some groups, like the great two person group called Ausem! There was also a 12 year old girl that was super talented! Of course there were a few people that slipped through the cracks and some that gave us a real laugh.
The panel of judges on The X-Factor consists of four people. Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, L.A. Reid and Nicole Scherzinger. What a great mix of personalities. I have to say that Simon Cowell was really much nicer in person and Paula was just as sweet as she appeared to be when she was on American Idol. She was even nice enough to tweet me later on!
The audience of The X-Factor audition taping was very energetic and got a little loud at times. For the most part everyone agreed on what talent was good and what was not. Thank goodness there were a lot more good than not. I personally cannot wait for The X-Factor to air. If it turns out to be half as entertaining as the taping, I don’t think I will miss an episode of it!

little girl playing dolls.
From the moment the Dollie&Me box arrived in the mail my 4 year old daughter was hooked. Dollie & Me dolls are designed by the Alexander Doll Company, Inc., the same designer and manufacturer of Madame Alexander dolls. The 18 inch dolls have beautiful flowing hair for easy styling (which we do a lot of around here), jointed bodies, and sleep eyes.
My daughter loved the doll immediately and
could not wait to free her from the box!
The matching outfits made especially for the Dollie&Me
Dollie & Me (dolls- as one featured in this review)are available in many department stores including
Kohl’s, Sears and online.
Sweet Heart Rose for Dollie & Me (apparel shown in this review)
is available exclusively at Dillard’s and online at dillards.com and macys.com
Disney was not a part of our family. My husband and I got married the year the Little Mermaid was released and my
first son was born the year Beauty and the Beast was released. My youngest daughter is four, so we have and
still are big into the magic of Disney.
