The X-Factor is still weeks away from its premiere, but there’s already problems with the show. According to The Wrap, exhausted auditioners who were rejected during the Miami audition are so upset with Sim Cowell that they’re suing him.
Eighty-six year old Hyman Marks and his 54-year-old son Stephen made it through several rounds of auditions before Simon sent them packing. Which is usually how it goes, but not for these guys.
They claim that production put them through grueling and discriminatory physical and mental exertion in an attempt to get special footage. The pair is asking for another attempt to prove themselves or, a million dollars each.
