I don't have much to say about the US X Factor. Most of the contestants are pretty forgettable to me, other than the girl who was the first to sing on the first episode of the Audition show, the guy who just got our of rehab and the 17 years old girl who doesn't look 17 at all. Oh, and the girl with HUGE lips. However, as memorable their performances were, I don't remember their name and I don't want to be bothered searching for their name.
I wonder why Cheryl Cole backed out; but Nicole is a nice addition. She's fun, energetic and very funny. Nicole and Paula got the categories that they didn't seem to care about... I wonder how they deal with their categories. With that said, I want team Cowell to win.
I found myself watching the UK version so many times; one time is simply NOT enough. My early favorites are Janet Devlin, Johnny Robinson, Craig Colton, Marcus Collins, Sami Brookes and The Keys. Janet and Craig didn't disappoint me with their performances so far; I've mixed feelings with the others.
I loved Craig Colton's performance from the Judges House. I found myself listening to it again, and again, and again... and his other performances too.
Sami and Johnny could have done better; their voices are fine, but their outfits are NOT and it's a distraction.
I think Gary Barlow did great so far. He's opinionated and very honest. I found myself annoyed with Tulisa who got offended easily. I'm always looking forward to Gary and Kelly's comments... the other two; not so much. As much as I love Kelly, I think she's showing an obvious admiration towards Janet and it's not fair for the other girls. Maybe it's just me... and like Kelly, I want to thump Louis, for different reasons though. He CHOSE Goldie over Sami?!!!! and Jonjo over TERRY?!!! I was dreading the fact that Sami got in because Goldie backed off. Seriously, I think Louis is DEAF. After the initial decision he made, I found myself not caring about him OR his understudy...
I love the time set for these two shows. In my time, I get to watch X Factor UK on Monday and Tuesday... then I get to continue watching X Factor US on Thursday and Friday.
