SPOILER: X Factor USA brings nudity and the best audition Simon Cowell's ever seen
X Factor USA premiered in the states last night (September 21) and the first round of auditions brought some great surprises to the stage.
Simon Cowell introduced his panel - Nicole Scherzinger, L.A. Reid and Paula Abdul - to the show and they all welcomed in the debut stateside season with both some unusual and incredible contestants.
During the first show music mogul Cowell declared to 42-year-old Stacy Francis, "I've done this for a long long time, that was one of the best auditions I have ever heard in my entire life. Loved it, loved it, loved it. I love you."
In addition to her jaw-dropping audition, 13-year-old Rachel Crow blew the judges away with her energetic rendition of Duffy's 'Mercy' and Geo Godley decided to get the panel's attention by dropping his trousers mid-performance.
