    Dannii’s laughing throughout Rachel’s critique from the other judges. :D

    I'm still a bit baffled by what happened with Fleur East's career. It's like they didn't even try.

    Did the follow-up to Sax even get a video? I vaguely recall a performance on the National TV Awards(?) and naff all after.

    Not sure if this'll be a popular choice, but I really loved this one.

    I feel like I am only submitting B list examples, but I always had a soft spot for Sophie Habibis. The announcer introducing her name is the closet the X Factor has gotten to high art. Sometimes I feel sad that she's still pulling pints in an unremarkable part of (Zone 3) North London.

    I love playing that clip in the company of others. It never fails to lift spirits

    I think she was one of the earliest victims of Syco essentially recognising that they'd made their £££ out of Sax and cutting their losses, rather than fritter away more money on a campaign that had already peaked.

    It's a shame, I really liked Breakfast as well, but she was always going to be chasing Sax / Uptown Funk under their guidance.

    I never watched the American show but that clip above is gold! It looks like something from a spoof.

    The full version is even better but it seems to have been removed from the internet.

    Steve: "Nicole, anything to say"

    Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOO!

    *Nicole emotionally crumples*

    Steve: "Nope!"

    This Saara sing off just kills me every time. I mean look at the expressions on the girl group's (4 Diamonds or something like that) face! They just know they're gone.

    Ok, not even close, the rest are more or less decent auditions... except for Christopher Maloney's, the 7th most watched video with 64 millions. WTF!?!? :D I bet he has the video on repeat in several computers since it was uploaded.

    Christoper Maloneys audition video is probably so popular because people want to see what he looks like before his erm transformation :side-eye:

    I don't know why but the moment stunt queen Katie Waissel debuted her DRASTIC hair cut during her most desperate live performance (HELP by The Beatles) after weeks and weeks of press hysteria and scrutiny.

    It was like watching a very desperate woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown. This year of Xfactor was such an EVENT looking back, every performance was a MOMENT no matter how shit.
