I got a twitter from Samantha (below). Thanks Samantha!
@clairemurray haha that is so so funny! Xx thanks lol! Xx
Well done Matt blah blah blah…I just didn’t care about the final this year. It took too long to announce and I was bummed One Direction didn’t get through to the final two. Now that Dannii has had a winning act, does that mean she will still be a judge next year? There are rumours that Simons replacement next year will be James Corden (who is as qualified to judge singing as Alisha Dixon is to judge dancing). I will miss Cheryl if she goes to the US next year, and I hope Louis stays on- he is a dafty but a sincere dafty.
The duets section on Saturday was so cringy! Xtina/Rebecca looked very akward and Matt looked like he needed a cold water hose-down within 20 seconds of Rhianna appearing on stage. Robbie did a good job with the boys, and it was nice to hear from Simon that he had made an effort in rehearsals to put the act at ease.
Sunday was boring, a series of tedious re-caps interspersed with an appearance from the now ubiquitous Take That, finalist songs and mental outside broadcasts (face pizza anyone?!). By the time the results were shown I was finding it hard to care, in my view Matt and Rebecca will release the same sort of bland music that Leona/Burke/McElderry have done in the past. I will be looking forward to seeing what Cher releases, hopefully something genuinely current and exciting (maybe with a little help from Cheryl?).
I didn’t enjoy the parading of the ‘wacky’ auditionees, that felt exploitative and unnecessary.
Did anyone catch The Xtra Factor where Konnie revealed that at the Bootcamp stage, 2 out of the 4 judges thought that Gamu was going to win…Ouch.
I am beginning to grow fond of One Direction, they have embraced the One Piece Tracksuit (Click for amazing pic!) and seem nice enough young men. My only issue is with Liam, who doesn’t seem to fit very well in the boyband mould. I think he only made it for his vocal ability, rather than his charm or stage presence, which I think is why he didn’t get past Bootcamp before. The rest more than make up for it, and I think they will defo be in the final.
I am a bit worried about tonight, I hope that Mary leaves! I will be really annoyed if she doesn’t get the boot. None of the others deserve to go, but I really mega hope Cher doesn’t get the bullet. She is aggressive looking and talks like a simpleton, but I would much rather watch her do the ‘celeb duet’ part of the final than Rebecca or Matt. Imagine her rapping away with the BEP or Alicia Keys!? Wicked, innit!
Mary sings like a town crier. Surely she can’t make it to the final? I laughed at the sing-off when Wagner tried to hold her hand and she pulled it away from him. Creepy man.
Katie has gone! Shock horror! (not). Even her haircut couldn’t save her after that awful version of ‘Sex on Fire’, it didn’t suit her voice and she looked like a child playing at being a rockstar. I think the shock of leaving must have given her a case of amnesia; why else would she be thanking the public for ‘all their support’?
Durrr Katie- everyone hates you!
I like her cos she is tall and has a similar jawline to myself (non-existent). She is such a total dafty: She farts in front of potential boyfriends, sings Elton John songs uncontrollably and has Heather Small’s head on a stick . She is my hero!
Did you notice that they went to a Premier this week? It was a real ‘blink-and-you’ll-miss-it’ moment.
Please can everyone vote Aiden out please he is so boring and he keeps pulling stupid faces. I am also fed up of Marys bellowing, I also feel like telling her to stop going on about her daughter all the time- am I the only one that thinks it’s weird that Mary calls her 3 times a day?
Loved Cher, Wagner and Matt. Paije was alright too but I have a bad feeling that he might be going tonight…unless he is against Katie who I really think has stretched her luck as far as it will go.
One last thing- was Dannii wasted last night? I think she may have hit the sherry a bit early.
I got this lovely message from Kate- how ace of her to take the time to email me?!
Congratulations Kate on being my first celeb fan!
What a weird show it was last night; sink or swim for a lot of the contestants. Mary totally tanked, but I doubt she will be in the bottom two as I think that older women will vote for her out of solidarity. Other sinkers in my opinion were Aiden (still boring) and Wagner (it’s getting too late in the game to tolerate Louis token ‘wacky’ entry for much longer).
Matt deserved his standing ovation- what a great performance. He is managing his image well too, you know he is hungry to win but he is also very humble and grateful. I like that. What makes me cringe every time he is on telly, is that thing he does when he presses his hands together like he is praying and points them towards his mouth or whoever is talking at him. Oohh..That makes me rage!
Katie was so dull and flat. ‘Don’t Speak’ was a really was a terrible song choice for her she just couldn’t make the pain and hurt in the lyrics translate through the song. I am really fed up giving her the benefit of the doubt when she just throws it back in my face. She doesn’t deserve to go before Wagner, Mary, TrayC or Aiden… But if she does go, I won’t bat an eyelid.
Louis called Paije ‘A little Lenny Henry’, and refused to pronounce Wagners name correctly, despite a direct request from Wagner to do so. I don’t know what goes through Louis brain, but I am guessing it’s not much.
