If you thought the crazies only flocked to American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance auditions, think again. According to X Factor USA judge, Steve Jones, the XF crew had its own pretty scandalous audition moment. Apparently, a male contestant flashed the judges and the audience during his first audition! And Steve claims he had a nasty feeling that craziness was about to go down.
"We did have a guy expose himself. Before he went on, there was a look in his eye and I knew something was not quite right," he told Heat (via Digital Spy).
And You'll never guess who LOVED this stunt. Yup, Simon Cowell. The producer and judge ate the gimmick up (for ratings purposes, obviously, not for any actual display of talent). Steve dished of the boss-man, "I told him we'd just had the best audition ever and he said, 'I agree. It was awesome.'"
Isn't this a family show? Weren't there little kids in the audience? Or young'uns auditioning? How is this okay? In an effort to prevent future "wardrobe malfunctions," we suggest they hire Ryan Seacrest to wait in the wings with a trench coat, ready to tackle anyone who decides to get nakey.
