I know this is on tomorrow night but since I had such a good time watching The X Factor on here, thought it would be good fun to start a thread so we can enjoy the fun together! So this year we have both Boy George and Faith Paloma as judges ( both of whom I think will be great fun! ) as well as the bonkers Will i am and the lovely Ricky ( can't remember his name ) from Kasabian.

So, if you have nothing better to do on a Saturday night, come and join me for an hour of fun and frolics!

( and remember it's now on ITV!)

Apologies, I thought I'd read that it had been bought by ITV but just checked and it's still on BBC1! 7.30.
See you then!

Ricky wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs. He was on with Sara Cox on radio two this morning. He is ok usually, but seemed a bit twatty on that. He was Paloma Faith's boss when they worked in a bar together years ago. He said George and Paloma are very loud.
Shame they dropped Tom Jones. I felt a bit sorry for the way he was dropped.

I'm game Destinywink

Kaiser Chiefs, yes thanks for the correction! blush . I agree it's shitty how they treated Tom Jones but guess it's a ruthless business. Let's see how the newbies get on...

The80sweregreat Fri 08-Jan-16 21:42:06

Yes, should be some interesting clothes going on..

Raahh Fri 08-Jan-16 21:51:51

yay! theredlion has just messaged me- or I would have forgottenshock

Am not sure about Boy George- but he might be ok.

I will miss S'Tom. sad

Hi raahh, glad your on board!
Can you remember any of the ones that won? neither

Raahh Fri 08-Jan-16 22:10:43

remember the winners? Hahahahahahahagrin

Although last year's did better than most- and I can't remember who it was!Was it the fireman? I hope he is still a fireman.

The only act who has had much of a career is Becky Hill, who was annoying, but has had a few hits as a 'featured' artist.

Hi Raahh ( interesting user name btw), with you on board I know this will be lots of fun! And think Boy George will be bloody good value
( was a big fab of his in the eighties so not biased at all...) smile

I played 'Karma Chameleon' on the recorder in a school concert.

sounded like a group of strangled cats

bit like Voice contestants

Hopefully The Voice will cure me of my Januaryitis.

Raahh Fri 08-Jan-16 22:24:36

(And I've been Raahh for about 9 years, bar seasonal name changesconfused)

Cocolepew Fri 08-Jan-16 22:31:20

Is it this time of year all ready?

Helloooooo Raahh smile

Raahh Fri 08-Jan-16 22:34:02

(sorry, Destiny that reads as a bit touchy-didn't mean it to!)

And I will apologise now that my laptop keyboard is messed up, so my posts may end up making no sense. I have no space bar, and half the keys are missing.


Raahh Fri 08-Jan-16 22:35:15

Hellooooo Coco

Today, I found myself wishing 'Dancing on Ice' was back on.
I need a hobby.

Cocolepew Fri 08-Jan-16 22:36:51

Fireman bloke is no longer a fireman. He has an album (cd?) coming out this week.

The80sweregreat Fri 08-Jan-16 22:37:39

I dont know why the Beeb have carried on with it really. Once the chairs are spun its the end of the fun!
See you all tomorrow.
Watching Amy now. So sad.

Cocolepew Fri 08-Jan-16 22:39:35

If there are namechangers from the previous threads I wont know who you all are sad

Cocolepew Fri 08-Jan-16 22:40:28

I wonder how many people will be shitter than Shenton?

Samcro Fri 08-Jan-16 22:42:41

im an looking forward to it

Raahh Fri 08-Jan-16 22:43:31

Shitter than Shenton!

Ahh, the memories. grin

I wonder how many failed popstars from the past there will be? I still remember when they all pretended to have been Cleopatra's (coming atcha)biggest fan.

She was a nightmare.

The80sweregreat Fri 08-Jan-16 22:44:31

Totally random, but just see an ad for Adele's latest stalker album and thought of Duffy,, whatever happened to the Welsh Adele?
( not been drinking either)

Raahh Fri 08-Jan-16 22:46:19

And <shakes head> silly fireman bloke. Does he not remember the fates of previous winners? -- nobody does--

Should have stuck to firefighting, mate.

Big question- now there is no S'Tom, will the Welsh quotient go down?

Cocolepew Fri 08-Jan-16 22:48:37

I heard Duffy the other day, remember the ad she did for coke? <cringathon>
She always reminded me of Carmel. Remember her?

Raahh Fri 08-Jan-16 22:48:39

Welsh Adele grin

I bet Duffy HATES non-WelshDuffy Adele. The days when all auditionees sang 'Mercy' are long gone.
