GS: I'm a judge on the X-Factor here in Australia. We did the first season last year—it was a great success.
SM: How was it being on the other side of the table?
GS: It was interesting, that's for sure. I could relate a lot to the nerves and how much [they] want it, you know? I think on one side, I was really sympathetic because I understood that there's a lot at stake. I know that people are nervous, but one thing I was super hard on was when people didn't take it seriously. I knew what was at stake.
