The X Factor

X Factor’s Tate Stevens Replaces American Idol’s Phillip Phillips on FOX’s NYE Live!

Nothing against the American Idol winner so hot they named him twice, but Phillip Phillips is no Tate Stevens. And, it seems FOX felt the same way. As X Factor wrapped up, it was obvious that Tate had converted the whole world to one big Tater farm. And Tate Nation has spoken: WE WANT MORE! It’s all very scandalous, considering the American Idol winner was the one originally slated to help the balls drop.

The ten-gallon hero will perform on FOX’s New Year’s Eve Live! special on December 31 (which airs from 11PM - 12:30 AM ET), broadcast from the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The whole shebang will be hosted (mind-bogglingly) by Marlon Wayans, who apparently lives outside of ‘90s slapstick comedies.

And Tate isn’t the only X factoid who will be involved. Simon Cowell’s lady friend Carmen Electra, who recently released her single “I Like It Loud,” will also be performing. Five bucks and a candy bar says Simon had something to do with getting her on that bill. Oh yeah, and Lifehouse... They’re playing too. Because, why not. The world didn’t end yet.
