I also lived with my manager for a year during the time I was recording the first album (for the second time! While the pair of shows were edge-of-seat stuff, as we waited with baited breath to discover which of the twenty-four acts would make it through to live shows, somehow it felt as though something was missing.And there was - the distraught tears of the contestants!Saturday night and we face the last of the X Factor auditions.
Unfortunately for Ireland's Nicky Byrne, he's going to get a lot of stick for not making it through to the final.
It was a good song compared to some of the ones that went through and I thought he did a good job but he was up against it.
Signing The X Factor up for another 3 series' as reported is a big mistake.
Give it a break, a long, well deserved break and if you really REALLY must Simon Cowell, bring it back in a few years' time when we've had time to perhaps miss it. At one point in 2014 I was living on £25 a week, struggling to pay rent and to be quite honest battling some inner demons while doing so.
victory, Sam has unveiled her first ever original song. The last winner, Louisa Johnson, was the first EVER winner not to make it to number one... Gaming has always been popular, but this has increased exponentially over the last few years.
First off, 'Sing My Heart Out' is strikingly more current-sounding than you'd expect, and certainly more modern than anything Syco stuck her with on her debut album.The reality is, X Factor is losing momentum as well as it's impact on the charts, so it'll be interesting to see if Simon can turn it around. Whereas gaming was once seen as 'geeky' and 'uncool,' nowadays, geeky IS cool.You can blame the huge rise of comics and 'cosplay' conventions such as Comic Con for contributing to this massive change in perception.On a serious note, as I mentioned before, this years' talent has been amazing.Will anyone follow on from Leona Lewis, One Direction & Little Mix.....?Since its launch in 2004, ‘The X Factor’ has become the biggest talent show in the UK.
