It has been a really long slog to get to this point. And this one has an ex-girlfriend of Prince William, and someone who sang at Wayne Rooney's wedding.

here is the song list-

'Last Dance' - Donna Summer

'Earned It' - The Weeknd

'In For The Kill' - La Roux

'I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor' - Arctic Monkeys

'You Can Get It If You Really Want' - Jimmy Cliff

'Lay Me Down' - Sam Smith

'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy' - The Andrews Sisters

'Come And Get It' - John Newman

'Heaven Help Us All' - Stevie Wonder

'La Bamba/Twist and Shout' - Los Lobos/The Beatles

'Breakeven' - The Script

'When A Man Loves A Woman' - Percy Sledge

'Anyone Who Had A Heart' - Dusty Springfield

'Ask' - The Smiths

'Glitterball' - Sigma ft. Ella Henderson

'Never Too Much' - Luther Vandross

'Valerie' - Amy Winehouse

'When You Say Nothing At All' - Ronan Keating

The 'Mexican Brothers' are not actually brothers, but are Mexican. A Los Lobos/Beatles mash-up no less.grin

So- there are a lot of acts to get through. Will need wine and chocolate

Ooh an 'O'Dowd' I wonder if that will be mentioned a million times? grin

Raahh Sat 20-Feb-16 14:15:14

Oh it will- Sparkling grin

I have teenage taxiing to do tonight and I am hoping it won't clash.

theredlion Sat 20-Feb-16 17:11:02

I'll do your teenage taxiing sparkling?
I'm not very enamoured with The Voice this year but I'm sticking with it in sheer desperation.

The80sweregreat Sat 20-Feb-16 17:20:25

Hi, bought wine and rocky road chocs ( seemed apt) although i need choc like a hole in the head just now. Winter is good for covering the bumps tho..
If BG turns for the O dowd, then its a

Cheers lion. Ds1 needs taking 12 miles away to a friend's house via a cashpoint and somewhere selling beer and crisps. grin

The80sweregreat Sat 20-Feb-16 17:36:39

Sparkling, i think your teen will have a better time than us..

theredlion Sat 20-Feb-16 17:38:51

Yeah I can do that sparkling, that's well within my normal remit.
DD is already despatched to her boyfriend's for the evening, I don't think they're going to a party tonight otherwise I'd suggest we could just dump them all at the same gathering and let them work it out between them?

Destinysdaughter Sat 20-Feb-16 18:03:17

Hi all, just marking place. This series seems to have gone on forever!

theredlion Sat 20-Feb-16 18:08:23

X-Factor dragged too didn't it Destinys?
On that subject, Nick Grimshaw and Caroline Flack are out of X-Factor this year.

I reckon Louis and Dermot are back.

Raahh Sat 20-Feb-16 18:11:29

Apparently Nick 'quit' but I read something Simon said, that implied he would have liked to have ditched him mid series. grin

As for Flack, well, that was inevitable.

Can Olly be trusted on his own, or will he announce a new 'tour' and they will then get Dermott back?

And yy, this has gone on forever, but mercifully isn't nearly as drawn our as X Factor!

Destinysdaughter Sat 20-Feb-16 18:12:52

Isn't one of the One Direction boys being touted as a judge this year? Slightly cynical way to raise the viewing figures if it's true! Glad Nick has gone, didn't think he brought much to the party.

Raahh Sat 20-Feb-16 18:23:09

Louis Tomlinson- isn't he the one who has just become a dad? Is he the least likely to want a solo career, then grin? I know he has been at Judges' houses before.

The80sweregreat Sat 20-Feb-16 18:31:07

Not heard the Artic Monkeys on any show like this before.. Now, i love this song, so will it be fast or slow i wonder? Alex 'breathy style..'hmmm.
Nice to see a few up to date songs on the list.
I saw about Grimmy n Flack getting the push..a one direction boy would lift the audience and bring the teens and tweenies back i think. If they are any good is another matter!

Fiderer Sat 20-Feb-16 19:15:53

Have missed the last few weeks but assume I haven't missed much grin

Still blind auditions? shock

theredlion Sat 20-Feb-16 19:18:36

Oh let's string this out a bit more.

squoosh Sat 20-Feb-16 19:18:39

Oh I did laugh when I read of the axe falling on Flack et al.

squoosh Sat 20-Feb-16 19:20:00

She's on the wrong show. She should be auditioning for Birds of a Feather.

Raahh Sat 20-Feb-16 19:20:16

Here we go!

Raahh Sat 20-Feb-16 19:21:03

She said she doesn't think she looks 42...

Is she Wilma Flintstones larger sister? Or Fred?

Destinysdaughter Sat 20-Feb-16 19:21:23

Cruise ship!

Raahh Sat 20-Feb-16 19:21:56

She is very orange.

Funny if Ricky turns...

squoosh Sat 20-Feb-16 19:22:18

She'd get chucked over the side of a cruise ship.

Raahh Sat 20-Feb-16 19:22:36

DD1 is gobsmacked by the awfulness of the outfit.
