I do watch X Factor, and think there are far more good singers than available places for the live shows. However, Simon was the only one with whose final choices I agreed. I find all the tears and hugs rather tedious, especially as Dermot looks so uncomfortable. I also groan every time a contestant is asked why they should go through and the reply is 'because I want this'! I do enjoy the programme though, and it is nice to have discussions about it with the GCs.
I don't actually watch X Factor but I've seen an exerpt from it twice now on Gogglebox and each time Cheryl Cole has got rid of someone with a fabulous voice. Does this happen a lot? It's as if she's getting rid of potential rivals to herself. Find it a bit confusing.
