The X Factor Begins...

I told myself I wasn't going to bother with the X Factor this year after three of the judges left the show, making the new line up almost unrecognisable. It was always going to be either a really good move, and make the show better, or a really bad move and mean a lot of loyal viewers switching off...

The New Panel:
From Left: Louis, Tulisa, Kelly and Gary

In my opinion, it was better. I absolutely cannot stand Cheryl Cole, so the fact that she was missing was a huge bonus to begin with and I actually really liked Tulisa and Kelly Rowland on the panel. I was less keen about Gary Barlow, as I found his Simon act way too forced and scripted, I think he will be getting on my nerves a lot in coming weeks. I don't really like Louis Walsh, and would have preferred Simon to him.

 Overall, the first show was a good start, I loved the 16 year old Irish girl who sang Ellie Goulding's version of Your Song especially, and I look forward to watching the rest of the series. As a mummy, I don't really have much of a 'social' life at the moment, so an excuse to stay in of a Saturday night is perfect! Great feel good TV and an excuse for a cheeky glass of wine and some yummy pizza, mmmm....

What do you think about the new X Factor? Are you a fan? Or are you switching off? Let me know!


  1. I was the exact same hun, I wasn't going to watch it but me and Liam settled down on Saturday and watched it and now I feel hooked!

    I wasn't to sure about the new line up, as I loved Simon and Dannii, I agree that it is better without Cheryl - ick! But after watching the first show I do rather like the new judges, I found Gary really witty and cheeky with some comments but I did like him before the show anyway.

    Cannot wait to see what talents come from the show this year :) I have already said that I think it may be a guy, but who knows hehe! xxx

  2. I can't wait to see they all gel with each other and the arguments start lol!

    shel xx

  3. ahh totally, it gets better as it goes on so I am pleased with the start :) xxx
