Here’s my red carpet interview with The X Factor‘s host Steve Jones. I asked him to compare Kelly Clarkson winning the first season of American Idol to Melanie Amaro winning the first season of The X Factor. I also asked him if Amaro’s win means that we have moved past the idea of reality singing shows only being about young girls voting for the cutest guy.
