Simon Cowell & The X Factor Hijack Myspace

The X Factor, the singing competition reality series featuring former American Idol judge Simon Cowell as its executive producer, may not be coming to Fox until this fall, but Myspace users got a taste of it starting Tuesday, as the show hijacked the social network’s homepage.

Other celebrities to participate in Myspace Hijacking include The Black Eyed Peas and Jack Black in December 2010, Russell Simmons in January, and National Basketball Association All-Star Blake Griffin in February.

Exclusive content to go along with the Myspace Hijacking includes: comedian Ben Gleib interviewing potential contestants in Los Angeles; Cowell’s top five movies; and fashionistas from the Los Angeles auditions.
