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.
Week four kicks off in Liverpool. The City that gave us the Beatles, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, OMD and X Factor's favourite son, Marcus Collins.
What a lovely day for a day dream...for one act, the dream will become a reality. Will that act be on tonight?
Is it really week two of the X factor auditions? I have been reliably informed that this year, there won't be any Novelty acts to, entertain us...oh b...
The holidays are coming to an end, the long sunny days (!!!) are drawing to a close. We grandly celebrated the Queen's Jubilee and cheered on our athletes in the London 2012 Olympics. Time to settle down and get back to normality...
My social life is now officially cancelled until Christmas, the X Factor is back for it's ninth series this Saturday.
The ninth series of The X Factor starts soon, but ahead of that, I am going to provide a brief history of the series starting right at the beginning. This feature will focus on 2004 to 2006.
The X Factor is a major part of my life. I would even go as far to say it is a family member, consuming my waking hours, providing laughter, despair a...
Love or hate her, Cher Lloyd will be around for quite a while yet. Please give this girl some positive support as her success will open doors for other young British artists, not only here but around the world.
It was expected to challenge the dominance of X Factor and sold itself as being a talent show for real voices. Not a show obsessed with the appearance of its contestants or a show which laughed at its singers.
Just over 5 months ago, X Factor crowned Little Mix as the winners of the 2011 show... On May 23rd in Liverpool the search started once again for the ...
These days fans go above and beyond - you only have to look at the likes of JLS, One Direction and The Wanted to fully appreciate the extent that 'fandom' as some people like to call it has really taken over... I will always have time for my fans no matter how busy or tired I am.
When The Voice was launched this year Simon Cowell said 'I would query whether you even need another singing talent show but we have armed ourselves and we are in a good place to beat them'.
There has been a lot of publicity in recent days about Simon Cowell and his alleged fling with fellow X Factor judge Dannii Minogue. Whilst everyone has been busy discussing this, the fact that he is apparently no longer engaged to Mezhgan Hussainy seems to have gone under the radar.
This week we saw The Voice settle into its boots a bit more and start to look, to me, more like the program it isn't, but at least a program I can get into.
Can we all agree we're bored of the budget, that the hashtag #grannytax was definitely not the reason Twitter was invented, and move onto the real story of the week: Tulisa's sex tape. No, of course you haven't watched it! You and everyone else in the office, I'll bet. Except, it's not just about the sex tape now (let's face it, Z-listers punting those out onto the interweb are two-a-penny), it's about a lesson in how to turn utter humiliation into iconic triumph.
