If you're a fan of reality singing competition American Idol, then you might be one of those people who tuned in to The X-Factor after it made its debut on US television (and local cable channels). Unlike on AI, judges on The X-Factor also serve as the contestants' mentors, guiding their group of candidates every step of their journey to becoming the first ever X-Factor US winner.
If you were a judge on the show, whose mentoring style do you think you would adopt? Would you be more like sweet Paula Abdul, blunt Simon Cowell, intense L.A. Reid, or cheerful Nicole Scherzinger? Take our quiz to find out!
