So here we are. The competition is really hotting up now. The finalists have been chosen. Who will do well, who will fail, but most importantly who will reach the X Factor Final? Here are my own personal views on the final 12.
Our first treat tonight, following my roast beef and Yorkshire pudding dinner, was the singing Russell Brand, aka Eddy String. Annoying, yes, can he sing no, was it entertaining, a little. Not for me. Too soon for another Frankie.
