If they don’t practice the ritual of snake handling, they believe they are destined for hell.

The X Factor, season premiere at 8pm on FOX

– The award-winning international phenomenon The X Factor is back. In Season three of the hit competition series hosted by Mario Lopez, the judges will travel the nation searching for talent 12 years old or over – both solo artists and vocal groups; who are willing to brave the panel for a chance to make their dreams of becoming a superstar come true. Contestants audition in front of the judges’ panel: Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland, Paulina Rubio, and an audience of thousands. This will be the ultimate test to prove they have the vocal ability, charisma and stage presence it takes to become a global superstar or breakout music act and win a recording contract with Syco/Sony Music. Those contestants who survive the first auditions will be divided into four categories: Boys, Girls, Over 25s and Groups. Each category will be mentored by one of the show’s judges. Not only is it a competition between the hopefuls to stake their claim for the coveted win, but it’s also a showdown among the judges as to whose acts will dominate the competition and make it to the finals. The judges may have their say in how the competition progresses, but it will be up to America to decide who ultimately has The X Factor.

On the home front, Sarah and her kids live with Sarah’s larger-than-life, headstrong father, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson, “Family Stone,” “Coach”), and pillar-of-strength mother Camille (Bonnie Bedelia, “Heart Like a Wheel”), who are dealing with their own marital issues.
