Fox previews first look at ‘X Factor’ (Video)

Fox treated viewers to a preview of Simon Cowell’s new singing competition series “X Factor” Tuesday during the All Star Game, in which a slew of hopefuls auditioned by butchering “Tomorrow” which, yes, we know, is redundant.

“It’s not about me any more – it’s about them,” Simon says in a voiceover. “I want to make people’s dreams come true. I even think about the environment,” he says as he gets into an all-electric Volt car.

Of course, it’s all just a nightmare, from which Simon awakes, then gets into his gas hog guys-overcompensating car, and goes to go meet his fellow judges getting out of their gas hog private jets and choppers while the tune “Live and Let Die” plays.

Cut to a montage of Simon-isms:

“Absolute total rubbish.”

“You are deluded.”

Simon faces the camera:
