    The themes have been even worse than ever, and the musical guests below par too

    I actually don't mind the lack of tight themes. I'd much rather there be freedom for an act to do what they are good at than be forced into a Disco or Big Band week.

    The only themes I miss are the artist-specific ones. They always brought out the really good train wreck performances, and occasionally threw up song choices that weren't crushingly predictable.

    The genre weeks were always stretched so thin as to be virtually meaningless anyway.

    Why isn't she pushing the MUCH better 'Bird Set Free'?

    So I'm in tonight feeling like rubbish and was flicking through the channels. Decided to stop and see what X Factor was all about but adverts were on. Couldn't be arsed to watch them live so went through some more channels. Went back to ITV 10 minutes later and it was ADVERTS AGAIN. This was a vicious circle straight for about an hour.

    No wonder people don't watch this shit.

    I was banished upstairs to watch it, but within 5 minutes of it starting decided I couldn't be bothered and phoned a friend I haven't spoken to for a while instead.

    Has Cheryl come as Big Bird from Sesame Street?

    I'm sorry, but in what world has JASON DERULO sold 70 million records?

    He's really terrible live. Looks like he missed a step.

    A nobody who has sold 70 million records and can fill arenas, Ellie. You're just out of touch. Embrace it. It's wonderfully liberating when you do.

    He's definitely a singles artist, his albums haven't sold much, especially in the US.

    I'm out of touch in that once for someone to sell 70m records it would take a genuine superstar a couple of decades to reach that. Now it seems anyone can do it even without a sizeable hit.

    It's just not a very good song :( A shame cos Titanium, Chandelier and Elastic Heart are all bonafide classics.

    I loved how the dancer in the box just stayed on the floor when the song ended. And Olly's chat with her. :D

    Poor Lauren knows she's going back to sleep on the sofa in her overcrowded council flat.

    I'm sure she has enough star power now to speak directly to a middle manager at the council and get herself boosted up the allotment waiting list.

    And whatever changes they bring in next year in another futile attempt to flog the cold corpse of a horse, I hope they go back to three judges or simply the public vote deciding from the outset without this farce of dead lock.

    Sia's interview :D

    Didn't know when the album was out, didn't know if she would be touring, and said her new album is full of rejected songs :D

    Are Reggie & Bollie the most successful novelty act in X Factor History?

    By a long shot, I reckon. Never so much as glanced in the direction of the bottom two, and receiving blanket support from the judges.

    I hope they win the whole thing. Louisa is dead behind the eyes and Che is a charisma-free fat shit, RnB are the only ones who might do something slightly interesting with a win.

    I hope that DEAD-EYED DULL BARBIE gets TITPOX before the final with Ché similarly struck down (preferably with some Winehouse brujería FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE for daring to slobber over Tears) so that RnB may REIGN OVER US ALL (while Mason Noise sleeps with me repeatedly) :disco: :disco: :disco:

    Surely they're not all going to have the same winners song then?

    Are you suggesting that a Reggie & Bollie version of Dylan's 'Forever Young' won't be amazing?

    Leona Lewis has said she's performing on the show on Saturday night. Just FYI.

    Oh dear. It doesn't really reflect well on her or the show, does it?

    I hope she's dueting with Reggie n' Bollie in a mash up.
