For the first week of America voting on “The X Factor,” Paula Abdul‘s call for the Stereo Hogzz was Janet Jackson‘s 1989 hit “Rhythm Nation.” How do you think they did?

We thought this was a fantastic way to kick off the show. The costumes, the harmonies, the dancing – everything was great. We didn’t love the very beginning, with the solo, but the rest of the song was so top-notch that we forgot all about the opening we didn’t care for.

The judges were complimentary. Simon had to begrudgingly say his good mood was ruined because Paula was so happy about the Stereo Hoggz, and she totally was. She was bursting with pride.

Will you be voting for the Stereo Hogzz?
