CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WHTZ (Z100)/NEW YORK and syndicated ELVIS DURAN AND THE MORNING SHOW welcomed X FACTOR's NICOLE SCHERZINGER in studio where DURAN asked her, "Is the mission of X FACTOR to totally crush AMERICAN IDOL?"
Her answer, "No."
DURAN pressed on and SCHERZINGER explained, "It’s two different shows, they’re looking for two different things." Co-host TJ said, "That’s the political answer."
Then RYAN SEACREST called in, "I’m just sitting in the car sipping some coffee listening to this conversation about crushing AMERICAN IDOL -- I couldn’t help but call in."
DURAN asked him, "What is it like at AMERICAN IDOL when you have an X FACTOR come on, what is the politically correct thing to say about X FACTOR?"
SEACREST said, "It’s not a tough question to answer because I’ve known SIMON for so long, and we’ve been friends for so many years doing AMERICA IDOL and both shows are on FOX, so I think the idea of both shows working is good for [everyone]."
They went on to talk about a party they were both at in NYC. SEACREST commented on what a big hugger DURAN is, to which DURAN replied, "I was wearing a white shirt and all your bronzer ended up on it."
