FOX 25 interviews X Factor judges Simon Cowell and Kelly Rowland

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Singer and X-Factor judge Kelly Rowland showed some love for the Sooner State with her rendition of "Oklahoma!"
But show creator Simon Cowell was not impressed.
"That was embarrassing," said Cowell.  
"Yeah it was, because I was being silly," replied Rowland.
FOX 25 spoke with the X-Factor judges Tuesday night.
Kelly and Simon got down to the serious business of this week's X-factor competition.  The theme this week is the 80's, promising big hair and lots of fun.
We asked Simon who he would bet wins this season's show.
"Based on what I've heard them sing this week, we were at rehearsal yesterday, Alex and Sierra, who are amazing," said Cowell.
Viewers will decide which 3-acts get cut this week down from 13 leaving, what these judges say, is the best talent the X-Factor has ever had.
The performers aren't the only ones making waves.  
This season mixes it up with Simon and Kelly joining  Demi Lovato and Paulina Rubio as mentors.
Simon wouldn't talk about switching up judges for next season just yet.  
He says the talent makes the X-Factor so successful.  
The show is now produced in more than 40-countries, and has launched the careers of artists like One Direction, Leona Lewis and 5th Harmony.
