Stacy Francis and Wendy Williams Bond Over Wigs and Get Emotional (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 23rd 2011 9:00AM
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."

Stacy FrancisLast night's 'X Factor' (Wed./Thurs., 8PM ET on Fox) elimination show proved shocking for all the wrong reasons; while Stacy Francis had given two lackluster performances over the past couple of weeks, it was Astro's petulant behavior that stirred up controversy. Despite being chided for his attitude by the judges, Astro was spared to sing another week, while 42-year-old Francis was sent home.

Today, Francis appeared on 'Good Day New York' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox) to discuss what's next for her career -- and far from shedding the mascara-streaked tears we've come to expect from the singer, Francis seemed poised and confident.

"I had some people approach me last night immediately after the show," she admitted, when asked about her next move. "I'm hoping America will still support me even though I'm not on the show."

The X Factor JudgesAfter weeks spent shaking our heads at the judges' questionable contestant choices, the power is finally in America's hands this week, with the Top 12 'X Factor' finalists competing for your votes to remain in the competition. And, since the show was officially renewed for a second season earlier today, expect to see a whole lot more of those questionable contestant choices to come.

We got a taste of the production value and format last week, but that was just a dry run, and this week, a mediocre performance could score any act a one-way ticket back home.

Which acts brought their A-game and which were content to coast on audience goodwill in the first week of voting? Will Stacy Francis' negative press affect her chances, or are audiences more likely to target Astro for being the only rapper in a singing contest?

Join us after the jump for our verdict.

'X Factor' Contestant Stacy Francis Accused of Lying About Past Success

by Laura Prudom, posted Nov 2nd 2011 9:00AM
Stacy FrancisWe've witnessed it for years on 'American Idol': as soon as audience voting begins, past scandals concerning the contestants start rearing their salacious heads, and it appears that 'The X Factor' will continue that trend.

According to Perez Hilton, popular "Over 30" contestant Stacy Francis hasn't been entirely honest about her musical past as she's progressed through the competition.

During the audition rounds, the single mother of two told the judges that she'd been unemployed for 12 years, but further investigation has reportedly uncovered a solid musical career that saw Francis singing alongside Madonna, Chaka Khan and Prince, as well as appearing in made-for-TV movies and Broadway shows.

'The X Factor' Recap: The Judges Choose The Top 12 (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Oct 26th 2011 3:00AM
X FactorThere were some controversial choices made during the judges' houses round of 'The X Factor,' but our mentors had the chance to right many wrongs with this week's live elimination show, as each category had to narrow their finalists down to three in order to proceed to America's vote next week.

Up until tonight, the groups seemed like the weakest category by a mile, but smart song choices and confident choreography helped Paula up the ante and raise her category to the standard of the soloists -- though I doubt even the smooth moves of the Stereo Hogzz can compete with the likes of Drew, Josh or Stacy.

Join us after the jump to find out who made it into the top 12 to compete for your votes next week.

Stacy FrancisIt's been a series of ups and downs for 'X Factor' contestant Stacy Francis. First, thanks to the lack of an age limit for contestants, the 42-year old was allowed to compete despite an almost crippling lack of self-esteem.

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 FrancisSingle mother Stacy Francis blew 'The X Factor' judges away with her audition last month.

However, just two weeks ago, the Brooklyn native received the devastating news that her father had died. TMZ reports that Francis strongly considered quitting the show to be with her family but ultimately decided to stay because that's what her father would have wanted.

Stacy Francis Proves It's Never Too Late for Dreams on 'The X Factor' (VIDEO)

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.
