I thought it was a bit off that that crazy guy (from sharons group - the one who got her flowers) got through because all he seemed to do was mess about.

I felt a bit sorry for Michelle Thorne, she obviously wants to get away from the porn industry but what else can she do?

She should stick to what she is good at.And that is not singing.

She is a very talented lady :o

Imagine if the cerebal palsy guy got through. He would have won by default even if there were better people there, like Michelle McManus did.

to be honest i didnt think he was very good to start with.

I wouldnt say he would have won by default. There was a blind guy in the first series, and they didnt win.

Look, time for a bit of reality. Or cynicism.

The reason McManus won was a) she could belt a tune and B) the sympathy vote.

The mistake was in the format, in that the judging panel had left the field too wide open for the "wrong" person to win it. The Great British Public decide the winner and it became obvious too late that she was going to win - Waterman knew this and thats why he was pissed off at the end. Remember Rik Waller on the original Pop Idol - they were only saved from him winning that by his 'flu/sore throat. Javine was absolutely conned out of being in Girls Aloud because if she made it to the final five she woiuld have stood out a mile from the other four in terms of ability.

So the format is rejigged and we get The X Factor. The various judges each get to choose their final contestants knowing that each one of them is suitable and not particularly caring which one wins. Any of them can win because all the production is done in the studio, and they can weed out the ugly, unsuitable, cocky, precocious or just plain independent of thought until we end up with a bunch of vacuous shelf-stackers.

Basically, the public is presented with a fait accompli - and everyone gets to rake in the text message voting money.

Yeah I just watched it now, and whilst i thought most of the overal decisions were alright, i was a little upset that James didnt get through and to some extent the other 16 year old lad, although id agree he didnt look the part.

Is cheeko really any good? All we ever see is bits of him messing around and making up the words to songs. I pressume Sharon has seen more of his singing then.. because otherwise thats one i wouldnt have agreed with.

But the thing with Chicho is even with training he'll still be a bit rubbish he has no 'range'. His only good at big shouty numbers and has a rather worrying thing of opening his shirt when his running out of breath to raise a cheap scream from the girls.

see also Tom Jones :(

I have to say, I found it incredible that Louie just flat out said, at the start of the discussions with his advisors, "I only want one girl in my four". Be damned how good or bad they were, or indeed how good or bad the guys were, he knew he wanted three boys and a girl. Pretty pathetic IMO.

And the Chico thing - my oh my, what does Sharon see in him? The guy has a negative amount of talent. Even Cowell could see that in his first audition. Sharon, who puts out this caring front, sent some people that could actually sing home for that guy. I'd be flipping livid if I was one of them.

Exactly - though some of them seem to be deluded enough alone too.

What gets me is if they were so serious about singing - all this 'music is my dream' crap - wouldn't they have done a bit more to actually make a go of a career of it?

Maybe like - being in a fucking band or doing some actual professional singing for money or something if they love it so much... rather than just expecting to turn up, be discovered and being handed everything on a platter.

Good point.

How come none of them have any instruments?

to be honest, i think most of sharons choices were wrong. The large-ish lady - she isnt gonna get further than a couple of weeks on the show. The black guy - he could sing really well - but he isnt gonna stick around that long, and i dont think x factors audience will pick him.

I would have said the top four should have been.

That guy who sharon said "couldnt decided whether he was a solo artist or in a band"

The girl with the kid

The black girl (who did get through)

and probably the black guy just so that there was an older one.

I was really surprised that Louis didn't keep one of the two 16 year old lads. They were both better than that bland bloke with the dark hair. Glad he kicked out that Alexandra - she was arrogant.

The whole Chico thing is a farce. As other have said, it must a pisser if you can sing and he was selected instead of you. Sharon seems to have the best set so her choice was the hardest anyway - stupid to waste one slot on someone who makes Darius look sophisticated and talented.

Cowell has a pretty crap selection but I think he made the best of a bad job with his choices.

I normally watch this on Saturday and end up seeing it again with the repeat on Sunday, however I missed the saturday AND sunday showings this week.

Don't suppose anyone knows if there's any torrents about for it?

Uknova normally have them every week.

I thought that little black kid was rubbish (cant remember his name). He had a lisp and I was cringing listening to him. That said I was cringing with all of them. Was he better in other weeks?

I felt sorry for both the 16 year olds though, although someone needs to tell the milky bar kid to get rid of the bracelets and rings.

I really felt for him though when Louis said "The problem I have with you is you dont look like a pop star" then knocked him back. I was waiting on him saying "But you can sing, so you are going through"

Way to go Louis, tell the guy he is ugly, then knock him back as well!

i wouldnt be surprised if he either topped himself or had radical plastic surgery and re-appeared next year.

To be honest i didnt think he was too bad, surely they could have done a makeover on him.. he did have a good voice.

He's the perfect excuse for some of that banter that 'we all love so much'., for example - 'Louis Walsh you're a joke' or whatever it was Simon Cowell shouted at him.

The girlfriend is an X-Factor addict. She watched it three times over the weekend. Problems, she has.
