Stacy Francis' chance at a music career took a major blow when Simon Cowell sent her home from 'The X Factor' last week. On Thursday, she came on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) show to talk about things, but inevtiable, the conversation was sidetracked by wigs.

Wasting no time, Wendy asked, "So what is this first, before we talk?" Stacy was wearing her side-swoop bangs, and Wendy definitely approved. But that hasn't always been the case: Wendy showed a photo from 'The X-Factor' when Stacy wore a bangs-less wig, showing off her rather large forehead. Stacy explained the choice, saying that she chose the wig because of its color, which was a few shades lighter than normal. "I had to go back to the swoop because people were tearing me up!" she said. "I didn't realize me forehead was that big." And Wendy agreed, responding "Yeah, it's huge."

Then, the standing ovation for her knock-out audition was followed by judge Simon Cowell telling her to tone it down after her next performance. To cap it off, the day Francis arrived at boot camp she had received the devastating news that her father had died.

Last night she revealed that she'd missed her dad's funeral in order to stay in the competition. Was her sacrifice worth it?

Stacy Francis, 'The X Factor'Already an international sensation, Simon Cowell finally managed to bring 'The X Factor' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) stateside, and while it's expected to get massive ratings for this premiere, featuring the returns of Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul together, along with L.A. Reid, Nicole Scherzinger and ever-so-briefly Cheryl Cole.

But as much as Cowell might wish it weren't so, it's about the contestants they manage to find. And while Chris Rene, who was 70 days sober and trying to turn his life around, blew everyone away with a heartfelt original performance, it was another contestant who perhaps best personified what makes 'The X Factor' different.
