Simon Cowell Introduces New Four Chair Format on ??The X Factor?

Its no secret that there are too many talent reality shows on television, and The X Factor introduced a new format last night (October 2) in hopes of boosting their ratings.

Described to be like The Hunger Games by one contestant, the Four Chair Challenge definitely upped the drama, given that Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell, Paulina Rubio and Kelly Rowland could all oust anyone at any time.

Cowell told the hopefuls, You have got to do the performance of your life, before each contestant was relegated into one of the newly-designed categories.

And in the end, the mentors had to decide on the four final survivors that would make it through to the live show round.
