If The X Factor was looking for a boost in ratings with the “high school-aged girls who like to crowd around the guy who can play piano” demographic, the show has just struck gold. That’s right: Chris Martin of Coldplay has declared that “I really love [the show] and I think the music’s great.”
Granted, this praise was meant for The X Factor U.K., but is it too much of a stretch to assume that Martin has the same warm fuzzies for the Yank equivalent? Both are anchored by Simon Cowell, after all. And with the recent surge of ultra-popular talent on the USA incarnation, who’s to say that we can’t get Coldplay and their big piano over here, too?
