It began on Saturday 18 August. We enjoyed tears, tantrums and some blooming awful singing, but after 16 weeks, we made it to the end and Dermot O'Leary announced the winner of the X Factor 2012. Congratulations... (pause for the tension) ...James Arthur.
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.
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...
I still vividly remember going to watch Scream at the cinema. It blew my mind. I also remember the man who was sat in front of me, who before the film started was all loud and cocky but once the films terrifying opening with Drew Barrymore got going, he quickly sank down in his seat.
