It is being reported that last night’s season 2 premiere of The X Factor was the most talked about premiere ever on social media!

Mashable.com is reporting that last night’s season 2 premiere of The X Factor garnered 1.4 millions posts and comments across Facebook and Twitter.


In comparison, Mashable is also reporting that The Voice, which also premiered last night on NBC, managed 202,000 comments during it’s premiere. However, The Voice may have come out on top as it did better in the ratings than The X Factor, bringing in 12.5 million viewers while The X Factor brought in 8.5 million.

Everyone seemed to be talking about the emotional performance of Jillian Jensen, who performed Jessie J’s “Who You Are” after connecting with judge Demi Lovato on being bullied throughout her life. Not only that, but social media was abuzz to Simon Cowell’s emotional reaction to her story and her performance as well.

If you missed Jillian’s performance and Simon’s subsequent reaction to her story and performance check it out here:

Did you have anything to contribute to last night’s social media commentary on The X Factor‘s season premiere? Who was your favorite out of everyone who auditioned and made it through?

Don’t forget to check out The X Factor every Wednesday and Thursday at 8/7c on Fox!

      Especially on Tumblr… a social network for people who are bullied but are usually aren’t on the site… from my experience and close friends of mine who do have/use it on a daily basis

        Tumblr isn’t a “social network for people who are bullied.” It just has a wide range of people who use it and you can easily find people who HAVE been bullied. I use it on a daily basis, way more than Facebook or Twitter. I’m sure there’s a lot more people on Facebook/Twitter who have been bullied.

          Well I guess the people who I follow generally all have been bullied etc. Tumblr is used for many things I’m aware of that, I just happened to notice that most of us Tumblr users have been bullied and after seeing that video on there, it just showed us even more to “stay strong” like what their tattoos say and prove them wrong that we aren’t losers and all. For me Tumblr is an outlet to get away from being bulled and communicate with people who have been as well…

            it’s an escape from that for sure, I agree

      And let me add that I love Britney and Demi on the show.

    I feel like they Demi and Simon are carrying the judging panel so far. (In fact, Demi is huge in social media a it is. Her fans live there.) I have seen flashes of Britney’s personality, but it looks like she’s guarded most of time. Not impressed by her performance so far. Hopefully she gets more comfortable as the shows go.

    I started watching this show because I love Britney, Simon and Demi. And I just…I wish I could find the words to describe Britney. She’s been so completely different than I remember. Obviously, she’s older and going to be different…but the way she is on here is just so weird to me. I’m glad she’s being honest–that’s great. It’s not that. I just…I don’t know!! Her facial expressions and some of her reactions.. it’s all very weird to me.

    …I really wish I could explain what I’m trying to say better, lol. BUT I’m loving the show and Jillian’s performance was great. It made me cry.

      I get the same vibe! I don’t know how to explain it either, lol
