...which is a bit rubbish. Pugsy painted gold was one of the highlights of last year. sad

The theme is 'This is Me'. hmm. So, plenty of scope there for 4th Omelette or whatever they are now called to shoe-horn a routine they have already done , into the theme. The songs are supposed to reflect who they are.

here is the song list

WHITNEY WARNING

Kiera Weathers
Katy B - Crying for No Reason

Alien Uncovered
Jessie J - Do It Like A Dude

Bupsi
Marvin Gaye - You're A Wonderful One

Louisa Johnson

Reggie N Bollie
Sean Kingston - Beautiful Girls

Monica Michael

Lauren Murray

Mason doing 'Sorry' is quite funny.

confused Monica didn't get through did she??

Raahh Fri 30-Oct-15 17:34:56

Blue- she is the 'wild card' apparently!

theredlion Fri 30-Oct-15 17:38:35

Only one wild card?
Haven't they had loads in previous years?

Raahh Fri 30-Oct-15 17:41:03

I think the year they let nanfucker back, they all picked one act they had ditched, and the public voted on the one they wanted back.

Since they have started live shows so late, they can't really bring too many back- or we will still be here at Easter grin

BlueBananas Fri 30-Oct-15 17:43:17

Oh well thanks for that!
Maybe you should've put 'spoiler' in your thread title!

Raahh Fri 30-Oct-15 17:50:25

Blue sorry. blush

It was being discussed on the previous thread, so I suppose I assumed people would know.

Raahh Fri 30-Oct-15 17:53:18

(I've reported it)

nancy75 Fri 30-Oct-15 17:55:40

No Halloween theme? I only watch in the hope of a terrible rendition of thriller or the monster mash angry

Raahh Fri 30-Oct-15 17:58:23

nancy- I know, no 'Thriller' sad.
<brightens> -Someone will probably dance to it on Strictly though. grin

Roussette Fri 30-Oct-15 18:01:16

Fanx for new thread Raahh. I'm in too and it will be all the more bearable with a thimbleful or two of wine grin

The80sweregreat Fri 30-Oct-15 18:17:07

Stritcly is going full on halloween!
Wont be here tomorrow , but hope its fun..be thinking of you! flowers

Xx

Raahh Fri 30-Oct-15 18:19:44

We definitely need to work on the nicknames. grin

BlueBananas Fri 30-Oct-15 18:33:14

Thanks Raahh
I'm a grumpy bugger today so apologies for being a bit short

Raahh Fri 30-Oct-15 18:34:44

Oh, don't apologise, Blue ! I just didn't think.

Of course, it could be Sunday before the thread title gets amended anyway grin

ElderPrice Sat 31-Oct-15 09:45:29

Love this thread! BTW There was an Xtra Factor programme on Thursday where Simon, Grimmy and Chezza revealed who the wild card was - so they weren't bothered about keeping it a secret! It looked to me like they just wanted Monica back and the only way to justify it was to call her 'the wild card'... Also, from Simon's comments, it seemed that he thought the 2 'live chair result' shows were a mistake... Hmmm!

Raahh Sat 31-Oct-15 09:58:00

Elder I did read that he thought he had made a mistake- and the theory that they have made up a wild card sounds plausible- they have always said if they are going to do that in the past.

I'm still sulking about the lack of Halloween- though Rita's outfits have been pretty frightful, so she might make up for it!thlgrin

The80sweregreat Sat 31-Oct-15 14:06:12

Gosh, watching sundays one now. What is Rit ah wearing?
Pink fluffy boot things? She reminded me of fozzy bear in an odd kind of way. Glad Grimmy chose Che. Like him.
Flacks shoes?
The stylists have gone mad this year.
Is this high fashion.. ?not seen this stuff in m and s.
Lol

theredlion Sat 31-Oct-15 19:10:19

Oh I thought it started at 7 hmm I'll just have to glug more wine instead.

Raahh Sat 31-Oct-15 19:11:20

Well, we have returned from trick or treating. There are always a lot of decorated houses around here.

I want to get into my pyjamas. Which would scare any child coming to the door. Oh- Raahhdog is not too happy at the stream of visitors, although he was quite happy when we took him out with us.

Need to sort out booze and nibbles.

Roussette Sat 31-Oct-15 19:23:05

Cheers! wine

Evening! I've been watching from the beginning, although I was determined to boycott due to Flack and Murs.

Looking forward to Rita's Halloween outfit. wine

TheFairyCaravan Sat 31-Oct-15 19:54:35

Evening.

I'm wondering how many are going to go this week, it can't be one can it? It'll never finish at Christmas at this rate!

theredlion Sat 31-Oct-15 20:04:48

I think they should get rid of loads this week grin

Raahh Sat 31-Oct-15 20:05:18

They are definitely going to have to ditch more than 1 on a couple of weeks.

They might get a reprieve this week, with it being the first live show.

Oh lordy- I hope Flack has been given presenting lessons this week. She was dire last week- thought presenting was her 'job' confused
