So, I think it’s safe to say, everyone will have heard about this week’s X Factor by now! No matter how hard you may try to escape it, this year X Factor is THE ultimate water cooler topic, and to think, 95% of the viewing public said it was over after the new audition format was revealed, how wrong they were!
For those of you who may have been holidaying on the moon for the last few weeks, this weekend saw the scandal that was Jedward being favoured by their biggest hater, Simon Cowell. After weeks of criticism, telling them they were making a mockery of what the show was about, he had the chance to remove them from the competition but chose to take it to DEADLOCK once again.
Some say it was a tactical vote to rid the show of the talent to help his own contestants; others say it was all a big publicity stunt to up the ratings, which it do doubt will be successful in achieving. One thing is definitely becoming more evident though, what IS the point of these Sunday shows? The bottom 2 doing a sing-off is less than pointless if it’s just going to be left to the public vote, lines for which close before any result is announced! Anyhoo, that’s my rant over, it’s still a great show and one that no doubt we’ll all be tuning into on Saturday night to see what happens next!haha:)
For those of you who don’t follow him already, you should add popjustice to your twitter lists as his commentary on X Factor each week is absolutely hilarious! Then after the show, there’s Matt Edmondson’s weekly blog, the latest of which can be found here (rock week)
So in other news this weekend, Craig Kelly was booted off Strictly on Saturday night. I’m glad they’ve moved the timeslot so that we can fit this and X Factor in, that’s what autumn/winter Saturday nights are all about!:) When it started and they tried to compete with one another, I found myself favouring X Factor week after week but now I can do both, I love it!:)
Finally, the adverts have started for I’m a Celebrity this weekend and rumours are rife about who’s going in. One name that seems to be going round and round the rumour mill is Katie Price! Now, as much as she annoys me, I think will make for pretty interesting viewing, at least she better do considering she’s getting £450k for it!!
