L.A. Reid to the X-Factor

L.A. Reid is about to make himself a household name. Many of you who may follow the music industry know him famously as the president of Def Jam Records and the guy responsible for Kanye, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Usher, Mariah Carey and many others. But now, Reid has been named as Simon Cowell's first judge/mentor for his new talent show rivaling "American Idol" and "The Voice", called "The X-Factor" which will be debuting this fall. As part of the deal, Reid will also be leaving Def Jam to become president of either Jive Records and/or Epic Records, both owned by Sony Music, the co-owner of "X-Factor" and record company that the winner will be signing with.

Talent show competition is getting fierce, American Idol has still held their ground and J.Lo, Tyler and Jackson have found chemistry quick. The Voice has not disappointed in their choices for judges/mentors either in Cee Lo, Adam Levine, Christina Aguleira and Blake Shelton (who? Country fans know who he is). The rumor mill seems to be noting that Paula Abdul and Mariah Carey could round out the judging panel on X-Factor. Let the talent show competitions begin.
