Jones Talks Seacrest, Cowell and 'The X Factor'


Sitting down with Nancy O'Dell on the ET stage, The X Factor host Steve Jones is opening up about his new hit show, working with Simon Cowell and being compared to American Idol's Ryan Seacrest.

Jones talked about the inevitable comparisons to his hosting competition from Seacrest. "I mean the only person who would be annoyed is Ryan," Jones said. "He's probably thinking why my name is being mentioned around this guy. I don't mind the comparisons at all. He's an incredible TV host. He's an institution here."

Check out the video above to hear more from Steve Jones about The X Factor and the host's special talents.

The X Factor
airs on Fox tonight at 9PM.
