Don't get me started on the X-factor!

Extracts from this document...


Don't Get Me Started On...! A review of The X Factor (ITV) So....The X Factor is back on our TV screens yet again, for our Saturday night viewing pleasure. Or is it pain I wonder? Back with the same old format of pervious series, we yet again have to sit through three million, OK possibly a slight exaggeration, of the most terrible performances from people who know somewhere deep down that they should JUST NOT DO IT! All to find one or two possible gems, for "Simon" to put up for sale in the Christmas chart battle. Let's not forget about poor Dermot O'Leary.

He has the results (feel the tension folks will I drag this out as long as possible and cue that dramatic music, whilst we all wait, and wait and wait). And the glorious moment is here! Oh, no. That would be the adverts. Again. Wait! We're back and still waiting. Is Dermot's ear piece broken, a technical problem? No just the producers in the wings like evil controlling monsters of show biz. AND THE WINNER IS....JAMIE!!!! (I bet Goldie is smiling down from that big fishbowl in the sky) There are cheers, applause, tears, tissue things raining down... a day that will surely go down in history. Not. Or, is Simon really the winner. I wonder? ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
