'The X Factor': First promo hits, 'Glee' cast on U.K. show



Behold the first promo for FOX's version of "The X Factor," which has been running on the network for several days now. There's no show yet, so the network can't really show you any footage, but the X-ified version of the Brooklyn Bridge is a pretty nice visual.

And in an interesting bit of cross-contintent cross-promotion, the cast of "Glee" will perform live on the U.K. show's semifinal episode on Sunday (Dec. 5). Their performance will mark the first time cast members have appeared on stage outside the United States.

Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer and Amber Riley are making the trip overseas, according to several reports.

The "Glee" cast will be doing a five-city tour in the United Kingdom in June, and their "X Factor" appearance will help hype the summer dates. "X Factor" broadcaster ITV may be giving a little inadvertent help to a competitor by booking the cast; the show airs on E4 in the U.K.
