The X-Factor

so who's been watching it then?

Are Emily and I the only people who just don't like the afro guy????? I think he's over rated and pants!!!!!
The Irish twins are just ........ well ......... shocking! No, that doesn't quite do them justice, they're putrid!

We're liking Olly and Stacey the gorgeous girl from Dagenham with the brilliant personality. :D

Jamie Afro - what a t1t (What's with the three foot scarf hanging from his back pocket every week - is it supposed to be his tail or something :-? )

And the Mcdonald Bros. (Okay Timmy and Jonathan - whatever they're called) - the worst act ever to get through to the final. I reckon Louis is using Steven Gatelys premature demise as an excuse to stay away from the show and to avoid his embarrassment at having made such an almighty cockup with his choices (have I taken this too far :-? ).

Stacy is brilliant. Daft as a brush but thoroughly likeable. (Though I do worry if she can handle the fame and pressure. She's so nice and down to earth , I'm not sure that she will be able to cope with it all).

As for Cheryl - is she a great actress or is she really sincere? Will she sing live tomorrow? I doubt it.

Johny Lonely will end up just that! Don't like him at all - reminds me of the Joker in Batman.

And the singing teacher - what's his name? - Great talent and technical ability - but not my cuppa tea. Too over the top - and even when reigned in a bit - still too much for my taste

All in all - at the moment Stacy is my favourite :D

Stacey from Dagenham is my choice too.

Johnie Afro is great, if you turn him upside down and use him as a mop plus he always has a duster hanging out of his trousers :D

The Irish twins? WTF :o

And don't remember his name but one of the lads desperately needs his left eyebrow trimming :roll:

I have to admit to being a regular watcher. Of course, I like the Welsh contestants :) The hi-light for me are the twins, Edward and whatever his name is. They are just so appallingly bad, they entertain, I mean NOTHING is right with them.

In a way, they remind me of Tommy Cooper. None of his magic tricks went right but that's how he intended it to be. The Irish twins just seem to think their so good!! It's just plain funny and maybe they've got something in that and most people who watch the show are talking about them!

think the scarf is an attempt at him trying to look 'rock' and cool .......... but he just looks contrived! I just find him annoying.

The teacher is good Phill, but there's something just a bit annoying about him too, he can certainly sing tho.

So who's out tonight then? ......... I've got a horrible feeling the toxic twins will live to fight another week ........ compulsive viewing for all the wrong reasons aren't they. :-?

I just cant believe Rachel is in the bottom 2 again she is brilliant really talented and totally stunning.

Think Olly was brilliant this week after being pretty poor last week.

Just hope Rachel doesn't go tonight.

Don't Like Jamie either conceited and as said contrived - pretends to humble but he thinks he is great hes just a good pub singer.

The Irish twins - the worst thing now is they have had so much exposure no matter when they go now they will be everywhere even if it is just to laugh at them. Louis has a lot to answer for.

Exploitation...? I dunno. Everyone that puts themselves up for that knows the score, they know what they're letting themselves in for and for some they make mega bucks!

It's entertainment.

The twins....what can I say? And Whitney......she's supposed to be off the crack......and she was......way off it. Seriously this shows supposed to be something for the younger generation to look up to. It's about time they sent it to the knackers yard.

These guys (& girls) i.e. the contestants all want to be famous - fame = exploitation that's what they want that's what they will get! - watching the process is good TV in fact TV heaven!

If i want facts ill read a book. TV for me is about putting your brain in neutral after a hard week!

Now there's an irony John........ a moving queue of very fast cars following the leader round the track in single file for an hour or so... with the most exciting part of the 'race' being when they come in to fill up with fuel is your idea of entertainment ??? :P

Hey Phill, Cheryl did not too bad didn't she.

My friend Ashley was there in the audience, sitting in front of Girls Aloud LOL! She said it was awesome seeing it live and that Whitney was truly wasted!

Anyway, everyone has their own opinion as to what is entertainment and as Glenn says I don't get why people really want to bash it? I can't stand soaps, Corrie and Eastenders etc drive me into a coma induced state but I don't get annoyed when people say how much they like it.

For those who like to watch it, it's all good fun! Simon Cowell is brilliantly sarcastic.

I'm with Glenn on this,

As a family we love it, it's just throw away TV that passes an enjoyable hour or so on dark cold Sat & Sun Evening.

I think Leona Lewis was a rare jewell found and they will probably never find anyone that will have a sustained career in the industry.

As for this series, same ol same ol, but still good entertainment.

Jamie afro, I don't mind him and think he is the only possible one that will go on to sell records after their Xmas No 1.

Olly (Essex Boy!! who is from Witham just 10 mins away fom us) is pretty good, bit of a Will Young.

I liked Stacy at the beginning, but is just getting scattier and scattier as it progresses, good voice though, Monkey Boy is also good.

haven't read the full thread so excuse me if i repeat what someone else has said...

I watch and enjoy it.
Some are crap, some are great... its entertainment at someone elses expense, i agree. but folk put themselves up there, not us!
have you never sat in a pub watching and laughing at a karaoke night? same thing...

same could be said for any TV gameshow type programe really... "cracker-jack", "blanketey blank", "its a knock-out" like marcella said, even "The Word", "dancing on ice"... people compete to win, but there are always losers regardless... we watch for the entertainment value.
i dont like "dancing on ice" but many do... i dont knock them for it or say your all scoffing at that poor bugg£r that keeps landing on his backside, because its all part of the game.

As much as i think the guys ok and enjoy some of his music, Robbie Williams made backside of his comeback and was clearly out his face.
Same goes for whitney, i thought she sang well and out perfomed all else, but she was constantly getting her heels caught in her long dress and thought she was going to trip over it. by the end she did look out of it and well ravaged by the drugs. bit like sam mitchell. :lol1: :vomit:

cant stand the twins... they do my head in. no talent and up their own backsides... ive yet to see them do anything good. even their one on one session with the mentor they messed up.. but im guessing they are being put through to keep us watching and for a bit of controversy.

not sure who will win, the welsh girls pretty good.

Dear Grim Reaper,

So far this year, you have taken away:

My favourite celebrity Jade Goody.

My favourite dancer, Michael Jackson.

My favourite actor, Patrick Swayze.

And now my favourite singer, Stephen Gately.

Just to let you know, my favourite twins are John and Edward.

Thats just the point. These morons will not sell records . But the welsh lass just might have been a massive money spinner.

Cowell does not need the money but he needs his EGO . He needs one of his guys to win.

Thats just the point. These morons will not sell records . But the welsh lass just might have been a massive money spinner.

Cowell does not need the money but he needs his EGO . He needs one of his guys to win.


I hope your right Andy but I personally think they will they will sell millions to kids just as MR Blobby was a hit these guys will be all over TV selling records by the thousands.

Well, if the public didn't vote for her then why is everyone complaining? Without question she is a superior singer than J&E but at the end of the day the people paying a quid to vote are the ones most likely to run out and buy the winners song!

I don't think Simon is to blame - The public are, no one else.

It's what the show is all about, but usually the best singer wins in the end - she wasn't it, I don't believe she was ever going to win anyway, so if she didn't go this week she'd be gone before the final anyway.

Good hype tho! :wink:

Well it seems to justify the way this country is going. If you have talent you get overlooked for some cretins who have neither talent and cant even sing!

Perhaps thats the same logic used to elect this current Government. lol

Whilst I agree with you Marcella to a degree, - if this is a talent contest (which Simon always says it is) and that the bottom two's performance - he says its about the performance on the night - he then goes 2 weeks in a row and doesn't do what he has previously said he will. No integrity just greed.

I think you will find the votes were fixed again!

And Simon was 100% to blame, unless you missed him saying I PROMISE WE will judge you only on this performance and NOT what has gone before. Then he went and used the public vote. Do you honestly think he does not know the result before we do??

There are only 4 singers in the contest. The two girls (one gone now sadly) and simons cocky arrogant lad. His mouth puts me off..even I could crawl inside it! And finally the best singer but they dont like him as he is trained........doh. Take my word for it lucie would outsell the twins by a 100 fold given 6 months after the final. Flash in the pan and not even a good one at that!

JEDWOOD to win!
Is signing the only 'wow-factor'??? a number of artists in the chart's cant sing live but they are entertainment indeed. Thing is, next Saturday/sunday will you stay in and watch the program, yes you will, you are hooked.

The Twins were kept in imo, simply to keep the veiwing figures up and to keep the X factor in the news, must say it has slipped and becoming a tad dull and without the twins I'm sure would loose viewers.


Leona Lewis lat night was very good, not really my kind of music but what a voice, she must or will have the best songwriters in the world begging her to sing their songs

Leona Lewis was brilliant whereas Whitney Huston's performance a few weeks ago was shameful by comparison and shameful if you had nothing to compare it to.

Yep I'm the same now want Ollie to win from a talent point of view but......would like to see Cowell have to give the twins a £1,000,000 record deal what a sickener!

What annoys me about Cowell passing the buck is that he is a judge that what his paid for that is his job - he has no right letting the public decide because he has been paid to judge the competition!

I wont be watching any more the good ones are going dont make any sense.

Twins to win - Cowell to lose the best outcome!
