“The judges will all compete with each other, ” Reid told Access Hollywood on Monday in New York of the big twist that makes “The X Factor” different from “American Idol.” “We’ll all mentor talent and then we’ll kind of compete with each other, so you take the likes of me and I’m competing with the likes of Simon Cowell and that makes for interesting television.”
Reid confirmed that, like the British version of the show, the judges will each “pick categories” of singers and “then they compete and we compete.”
The former Def Jam Recordings boss said he’s very aware of how to spot someone who has “The X Factor, ” thanks to years of experience.

L.A. Reid: Leaving Def Jam For ‘X Factor’ Is ‘Still Difficult’
“I loved the artist roster that we created at Island Def Jam and I love the company and yes, it was difficult. It still is difficult, ” he told MTV News on Monday (April 11). “This morning I heard about a remix that Rihanna did with Britney Spears [for ‘S&M’] and I was like, ‘It’s the first time some music has been done that I wasn’t involved with and I don’t know if I like that or not.’ I don’t know.”
It wasn’t so much that Rihanna and Spears hooked up on the track as that someone other than him made that decision. “I don’t like anybody tampering with my Rihanna, ” he joked. “Doesn’t matter [what the song sounds like]! I didn’t do it. No, I think it’ll be great, but it was very difficult to leave. It wasn’t difficult to decide to do ‘X Factor, ‘ it was difficult to walk away from this amazing roster and amazing staff of people and all the executives that were there that was tough.”
