X Factor: It’s coming Back

August 22, 2009

Tonight’s the night. Saturday night entertainment for the next few months, X Factor. I’m excited.

The audition shows start today, which is the funny part. There are so many losers who think they’re better than what they really are. And hearing Simon Cowell slag them off – the man is pure honesty, sometimes a bit to harsh. He is a big part of the show and it wouldn’t be the same without.

I do like that Cheryl Cole stepped in for Sharon Osbourne. Not as crazy and she speaks up to Simon and then there’s the fashion war between Cheryl and Dannii Minogue. I prefer curvaceous.

So last years winners, JLS, made it to number 1 with their debut single Beat Again. They didn’t actually win the competition. They came second. Alexandra Burke won. Are they holding her back until the live shows?

If everything goes right she can be big or just be another one in the bunch of pretty girls that can sing but you can’t really make out who it is.

The acts were good last year, really good. Spanish Ruth Lorenzo had an amazing voice and the energy of a bull. Diana Vicars, the blonde fairy with the very distinctive voice and funny hands. Laura White, who unexpectedly got the kick out early in the process even though being the bookies favourite. There were some good boys too, but there’s no doubt JLS were the best amongst them.

So it’ll be interesting what they’ll find this time around. Who gets what category. Who’s put through to the finals. Will the live audience at the auditions will make a difference (they’re hired shrinks to make sure no one ends up at the Priory, taking precautions that is). I heard Dannii’s getting help from sister Kylie… and Louis Walsh, doesn’t he always skip to put through one or two the best acts in his category.
