The X Factor auditions are over and that means only one thing. I must name my Midas Act for the 2012.
Will trio Rough Copy get the final show off to a great start? Well, they certainly know how to work the crowd, in and out of the arena. Four nods from the judges and they sailed through to bootcamp.
The opening round up montage shown tonight, made me realise what great talent we've had so far this series, a lot more than 12, so the choices are going to be interesting. The live shows will be fab.
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?

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.
