I haven't been watching the whole thing but a friend sent me a link of James Arthur on YouTube, and I'm now officially waiting outside his dressing room with my pants down a fan. Anyone else? DP laughed when I told him. Is he fanciable or am I hormonal?

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Wed 28-Nov-12 20:33:48

I don't fancy him but i do think he is wonderful and i want him to win.

ChestnutsRoastingonaWitchesTit Wed 28-Nov-12 20:40:49

Strangely yes. No idea why. But yes. I certainly would.

YES! He is fanciable. When he sings I melt. When not singing, not so much. it's his epic voice, it has magic powers.

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Thu 29-Nov-12 00:03:59

Good god no. He always looks like he needs a jolly good wash.

LineRunner Thu 29-Nov-12 00:08:11

He has lost his way to the laundrette and public baths.

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Thu 29-Nov-12 00:18:12

definitely fanciable, especially when he plays/sings.

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Thu 29-Nov-12 00:19:16

he's very tall and broad. i like tall and broad.

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Thu 29-Nov-12 00:19:46

And the dentist LineRunner.

Sleepyfergus Thu 29-Nov-12 00:24:05

No. He looks like Sloth from The Goonies.

hatesponge Thu 29-Nov-12 00:36:46

Sleepy my colleagues have been calling him that for weeks!

I think he's absolutely lovely, his eyes are amazing. I definitely would grin

DudeInaTutu Thu 29-Nov-12 00:42:53

he looks a bit of a miserable git.

notice he lost the grandad specs fairly early on. i reckon, if you bumped into him in the pub youd not look twice, fame is a quite the aphrodisiac.

but i wouldnt. nah.

i did used to find jarvis cocker massively attractive though so what do i know?

charlieandlola Thu 29-Nov-12 01:00:21

You must be mad . His voice is ok but he looks like the lead singer of the Pogues with his tatts on fingers and those grim teeth.
Listen to him with your eyes closed is my recommendation, or use lots of Dettol to bleach your eyes

Charleymouse Thu 29-Nov-12 01:06:47

Yes he has the SE X Factor, don't like the tats on hands but would not care as where they would be I wouldn't be able to see them. blush

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Thu 29-Nov-12 01:10:28

i like the tatted hands blush

Sleepyfergus Thu 29-Nov-12 06:29:36

He is a v good singer though, for sure.

I was certain that he would have undergone a little but if cosmetic dentistry work but it doesn't look it!

Jemma1111 Thu 29-Nov-12 06:33:32

Good singer but not a patch on Jahmene's talent imo !,

Growlithe Thu 29-Nov-12 06:45:42

I think he's got a bit of a young Elvis look about him. Have I just made myself sound about 70?

ChestnutsRoastingonaWitchesTit Thu 29-Nov-12 09:50:09

Ummm......I'm not sure about Jahmene's voice... I know its technically acrobatic and moving in a dusty Springfield kind of way but it doesn't make me go all wobbly like when James sings..he's a very emotive performer and very male, grrr i like that. its something jahmene lacks


Kormachameleon Thu 29-Nov-12 09:53:06

Ooooh yes
I would
And once more for good luck

Deffo something about him

I agree with chestnuts I'm finding Jahmene a bit blah now tbh and don't think he has nearly as much talent as song writing, guitar playing, rapping and singing James Arthur. Don't care who wins though because JA has enough talent to not need to.

Yes, definitely fanciable. I've always had slightly odd taste in men though blush

Totes agree with chestnuts and strawberry.

Jahmene is not as roundly talented as James. James can play the guitar and piano, he can rearrange songs and 'make them his own' so well.
Plus, even though it's technically good, the sound of Jahmene's voice is just not pleasing to mine ear. Whereas James-Eyelashes-Arthur has a voice of...not to sound over the top...liquid gold..and its manly, as someone has already said. Swoon. He can sing 'Let's Get It On' or 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You' to me any time, I would happily take a running jump into his bed. What a way to be seduced!

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Thu 29-Nov-12 18:34:51

yes chestnuts. it's that GRRRRyy maleness james has.

someone upthread said you wouldn't fancy him if you saw him in a pub. if he had his granda glasses on i would. blush

Well put porkus

JaceyBee Thu 29-Nov-12 19:11:21

I don't know. You'd probably pity fuck him but then he'd get all clingy and do your head in. Plus when you were shagging he'd probably be all earnest which can be a bit of a turn off.

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Thu 29-Nov-12 19:29:01

oh no i definitely cant see him being the clingy type at all!!

He's been seen whisking women (two at a time) in and out of his hotel room, so I don't think he'd be clingy...I can imagine him looking all earnest though, through his long eyelashes. That's part of the appeal when he sings for me though. Me likey.

*errrrrr, I mean part of the appeal for me when he sings. I don't think he sings for me. (cough)

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Thu 29-Nov-12 19:46:28


i was all ready to get envy there!

blush grin

SinisterBuggyMonth Thu 29-Nov-12 22:15:06

I'd definately opt for an earnest shag

mirry2 Thu 29-Nov-12 22:20:31

He needs his teeth fixed. Give it 6 months and he'll have lovely white, straight knashers. His singing is a cross between heavily sexual and
constipated groaning.

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Thu 29-Nov-12 22:26:34

grin@ mirry!

i agree i think he'll get the teeth fixed. i dont think he needs them done though. too many simon smile clones about in cleb world.

sinister haha!

nooo, his teeth are part of his scruffy charm. You know, pretty blue eyes to win you over, but shit teeth to remind you that he's manly.

SilveryMoon Thu 29-Nov-12 22:36:06

I'm a little in love with James Arthur. I think he's great. So so would.

BambinoBoo Fri 30-Nov-12 21:52:44

Frank Sidebottom.

sailorsgal Fri 30-Nov-12 21:57:11

Noooo! I recognised his dad and wondered whether we used to go to the same clubs in the eightees!

I did vote for him on Saturday though. grin

Celticlassie Fri 30-Nov-12 23:29:08

He has an oddly small head. Like a cotton bud.

LineRunner Sat 01-Dec-12 17:56:44

I find it creepy when you see women like Cheryl Cole whose heads are bigger than their actual bodies.

Clawdy Sat 01-Dec-12 18:13:15

Yes,it's the small head and the terrible teeth. All that nodding too.

aPirateInaPearTree Sat 01-Dec-12 18:17:09

yes he is fanciable. i like. my dd likes. she is ten. she likes him in a similar way to me, but not quite the same way blush lol.

he's also bloody talented.

NotWankinginaWinterWonderland Sat 01-Dec-12 18:20:24

Oh no, yucky teeth!! I'm sure he has facial hair some weeks also...yuck!

SinisterBuggyMonth Sun 02-Dec-12 11:54:38

His teeth are fine, not black and falling out, just a bit sqwiffy. Jarhmain has a wandering tooth. I think his head just looks small because his shoulders are so broad, due to his big manly tatooed arms and his shoulders are large enough to support my thighs, should he ever need too. Oddly I feel as if I know him, this may be due to very affective marketing and good mentoring, not me being a stalker type. But then I want to cuddle and protect Louis when he wears his onesie so I may just be needing sleep...

SantaIAmSoFuckingRock Sun 02-Dec-12 15:17:49

is it just me or does he now have shaped eyebrows and brighter blue eyes?

NotWankinginaWinterWonderland Sun 02-Dec-12 15:19:07

His teeth will be fine next week (power of x factor). grin

BornInACrossFireHurricane Sun 02-Dec-12 15:26:47

It's his voice, I think. I don't like current music born in the wrong era but even I go a tad weak at the knees when he performs. Especially last night. Hmmm.

FanjoForTheMammaries Sun 02-Dec-12 15:31:11

I wouldn't even with someone else's!

FanjoForTheMammaries Sun 02-Dec-12 15:31:30


Tigerbomb Sun 02-Dec-12 15:48:40

except for the Tats he is the image of my DexH around 20 years ago. I can't watch him as it upsets me

CindySherman Sun 02-Dec-12 16:32:29

Not my type - a bit quasi modo ish but hugely talented guy I how he wins.

ChestnutsRoastingonaWitchesTit Mon 03-Dec-12 10:36:58

If he gets those big white 'off the shelf' teeth they minor slebs get I shan't be interested any more. So there.

No. He looks like Sloth from The Goonies.

Ha ha yes. He just irritates me full stop. He needs to crack a smile for once

picketywick Mon 03-Dec-12 13:18:39

I like James Arthur , and now Ella has gone, would like James to win

He does seem to risk a breakdown with each song. Intensity is his game.

Not just singing emotively. Sing till you burst into flames/Good luck james.

SinisterBuggyMonth Mon 03-Dec-12 21:38:43

such big manly arms and sensitivity, he is strong but gentle, like a beekeeper.

vigglewiggle Mon 03-Dec-12 21:48:31

sinister - grin

He's taken on Frankie Boyle, so he's alright by me!

StopPickingYourNose Sat 08-Dec-12 00:27:55

Place your bets. James Arthur will win XFaxtor.

ProgressiveLoweringOfStandards Mon 10-Dec-12 16:28:13

Did anyone else have a ahem - rather erotic dream about him last night? I did and I thought - I bet I'm not the only one.... He's got that quality in his singing like Thom Yorke that gets women all a flutter...

ThursdayWillBeTheDay Mon 10-Dec-12 16:33:23

He looks like the child I never had with my favourite ex. So the fact that I even clicked on this thread and am sat here thinking "god yes I so would" makes me a perv.

Still. I so would. After all, I still dream about shagging his double all those years ago...

SinisterBuggyMonth Mon 10-Dec-12 23:32:05

no erotic dream last night, but I'm hoping it will turn up sometimr this week. I think the nation voted with its knickers, and rightly so. The only Xfactor contestant ever that I would. And he won. Double whammy.

ProgressiveLoweringOfStandards Tue 11-Dec-12 12:27:27

Argh - help - I've just looked at a couple of his performances on Youtube... I'd better stop before this turns into an age-inappropriate infatuation- I'm 12 years older than him ffs!

ThursdayWillBeTheDay Tue 11-Dec-12 12:43:57

Fear not. I think I'm about 25 yrs older than him and I still would.

I have d/l him all morning grin

ProgressiveLoweringOfStandards Tue 11-Dec-12 12:57:12


SinisterBuggyMonth Tue 11-Dec-12 13:30:16

How old is he anyway? I may have to start trawling You Tube too, now there will be no more weekly fix of Grrrrr on a Saturday night.


Manly man with his big manly tatooed arms

Grrrrrrr blush

littleknownangel Tue 11-Dec-12 17:56:41

think he is 24.

MisselthwaiteManor Tue 11-Dec-12 18:42:23

I love him, but if they fix his teeth and make him all shiny he will lose his appeal.

SinisterBuggyMonth Wed 12-Dec-12 08:41:24

13 years younger, I think I can get away with that, although I am just about old enough to be his mum!

ThursdayWillBeTheDay Wed 12-Dec-12 08:44:47

I knew it. I am a creepy stalky Mrs Robinson. I was his age when he was being born shock

I agree they must leave his dentristy alone. Otherwise he risks looking like Jimmy Osmond. <shows age again>

ProgressiveLoweringOfStandards Wed 12-Dec-12 12:31:12

I'm glad I'm in good company here smile

I agree about the dentistry thing too- it keeps him down to earth to have slightly crooked teeth. I imagine he might end up disappearing up his own behind if he gets that 'sleb polished' look- he'll have trouble remembering where he's from- especially with all the women throwing themselves at him (those who are fortunate enough to be within range).... wink

SinisterBuggyMonth Wed 12-Dec-12 15:01:38

Do you think he likes the older ladies? I get the impression he would. In a filthy way.

Not like Nanfucker though! Nanfucker should have no penis, like Ken.

ThursdayWillBeTheDay Wed 12-Dec-12 15:14:40

Urgh at thought of Nanfucker's penis.

We'd have seen it sticking out of his forehead surely?

DebK2012 Sun 13-Jan-13 13:56:48

I'm so glad that he has won!!!! My daughter (13) absolutley loves him so we are going to the live tour!
