    I watch it but I've yet to see this weekends.

    I don't think it's a great thing for music with all that annoying warbling and I'd never buy or download any of the people featured, but it does make good watching.

    I used to watch it, in the days before i acquired this computer and the wonders of access to the www.orld.

    Prior to that i was essentially forced to watch it with the mentally deficient people i lived with, along with the sheen of spittle and crisp crumbs accumulating on their burbling chins.

    I quite liked Leona Lewis though.

    Watching yesterdays now, I'm just waiting for that awful phrase "Music/singing is in our DNA"

    I'm sure somebody will come out with it.

    Ok....where to start.

    Perhaps I must be a mentally deficient, spittle and crumb type person because I lower myself to watch the x factor, although when I was in church today at our harvest festival lunch lots of people commented on my slinky figure hugging dress. Yes I was wearing Spankx. Also I was a contributor and made the mashed potato .... ( waste of my talent, but someone has to do the boring bits).

    To you Baldy-rick.....

    You are just "SHAMELESS"

    Am going to bed soon. Watch last night and tonight ( taking out the adverts and the rubbish you can fast forward 2 hours into 11 minutes)

    Then let me know what you think about it all.

    I love X-Factor HHF -- I've seen the auditions but as my TV doesn't go live until Thursday with recently moving I've missed all of Boot camp but I will have TV in time for the Live shows - Yay!

    I've watched them all since Pop Stars, but it's really been getting on my nerves over recent years, I don't understand how the likes of Cheryl Cole and Tulisha could possibly sit there and judge talent, then reject singers who are a millions times better than they are. The standing ovation to Cheryl's awful performance last year (or may have been the year before) still annoys me.

    We were without TV for almost a month when we moved house so missed the early auditions and haven't bothered with it since.

    No comments on the weekends X Factor farce?
    I don't believe for a minute the voting is fixed - ITV learnt their lesson with that years ago but they definitely fixed it to go to deadlock to keep Rylan in - after all he has got lots of publicity for the show and his performances always generate lots of comments, even though he is so awful he's almost as bad as Jedward.
    Carolynne though was one of the stronger singers in the competition and it's not fair of them to sacrifice her chances just to keep the show more entertaining to up the ratings. Then again that's what it's all about and I'm sure she will get offers anyway.
    I think the contestants are weaker this year - half good, half bad.
    So far I really like - Jahmene, Ella, James, Kye and Melanie. All of the groups are rubbish this year and I think as usual Louis will be the first judge to lose all his contestants - which is fine as he is so out of touch and I can't even look at his ridiculous plastic surgery face anymore!

    I'd be surprised if that Ne-Yo wins.

    And Louis was so wrong, I'm not a fan of country music but she had the most talent.

    Rylan should have gone, he's crap.

    and the award for understatement of the year goes to...!

    the guy is a stain on the human gene pool.. that poor carolynne girl - it's bad enough losing to that "rylon" thing, but louis blatantly said he was putting her through, she even did a little jump for joy, then he suddenly remembered controversy = ratings and changed his ruddy mind :angry:

    and on the subject of li'l louis - what the feck was he wearing on sunday?? I'm sure he was wearing a black turtle neck just cos adele's Skyfall song is out atm and he thought it made him look like Bond lol.. what a tit..

    X Factor was dire this week - we were away so taped it - managed to watch almost the entire thing on fast forward! what was the theme? Shite songs?
    As for the results show - Tulisa actually said that 3 piece boyband who won the sing off had the best harmonies she's heard for a long time. Reckon you need to get your ears syringed love - they are dire, they sing out of tune and they all have weak voices. It's a joke they went through over Melanie but I guess the majority of voters are teen girls - sigh :(
