Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 17:38:47

New thread, mainly to make sure no-one misses the new timegrin

And it finishes at a very respectable 9.20pm.

Which is lovely. grin.

Will Simon have another hissy fit? Will Megan sing an original song?

Will Vinnie be all cheeky chappy? Has Jenny run out of Eurovision songs to sing?

Can I even be bothered with the groups?

Copied from other thread, this is who is left.

Megan McKenna.
Vinnie Jones,
Jenny Ryan.
Max & Harvey
Try Star

See y'all later. I have Cheeselets and Twiglets. It's officially nearly Christmas. wine.

FadingStar Sat 23-Nov-19 17:47:01

I'll be here!!😉

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 18:01:24

I will also be here. Who would have thought that we will only need 2 xfactor threads? Long gone are the days when there was one every Saturday

FadingStar Sat 23-Nov-19 18:05:09's had its day really. I think I've watched every series from the very start. I remember really not wanting Steve Brookstein to win.😂

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 18:19:29

Cheers Raahh.
Guessing that the rugby lot will do a Magic mike number and Megs her own stuff.. Vinnie will shout again!

Mammyloveswine Sat 23-Nov-19 18:35:46

I'll be here! Not impressed with the clash with strictly though 🙈

Vinnies acapella performance last week reminded me of being at a family party when your uncle gets pissed and starts singing whilst everyone has to shush and sway along grin

It's been dreadful, I think this is the end if xfactor.

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 18:37:25

dillite that's true, it's just not grabbed me, this series.

In X Factor related news, I have discovered what Matt Terry is up to. He is performing the Grinch who stole Christmas- the musical- at the Lowry theatre near me. grin. Spotted the posters on a trip to the town centre.

Don't think he is the Grinch grin. (That's possibly Griff Rhys Jones).

We also have the annual lights switch on at our local centre.

Starring none other than Toploader. A host of 'lost in the first round of auditions of X Factor' type people- and some bloke from Black Lace.

Don't all rush here at once.


Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 18:39:32

Mammy that is is an excellent description of Vinnie's performance.

I hope he fakes a sore throat, and doesn't perform. I think Simon was an arse, saying he had to.

Mammyloveswine Sat 23-Nov-19 18:46:08

Thank you @Raahh ! In a month I get to experience similar at my Nanas 95th birthday celebration!

Great when you're pissed, in the cold light of day slightly cringey... especially the Irish accent in there!

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 19:09:32

Raahh, black lace you say? Of Agg a doo fame ?
.. think I'm washing my hair that night! Lol

Panto keeps the money coming in when your a 'has been!' ( or a nearly been)

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 19:14:50

Thanks for the heads up of the earlier time, would have missed it otherwise!

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 19:15:49

Panto pays quite well so I wouldn't be judging any never been for doing them. Those Christmas presents don't buy themselves.

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 19:18:32

True about the 'panto gig' ! I guess it all helps with the bills and publicity etc.
I haven't been to one in years!

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:36:59

80s of Agadoo and Superman fame , indeed grin

I can still do the actions to Superman. Thanks to a holiday in Majorca in 1983. It was popular with the hotel reps grin

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 19:40:02

Superman was good but not as good as ' agg a doo' ! That was a classic novelty song !

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:40:47

Scandal! Dene Michael wasn't even an original member of Black Lace shock.

And was jailed in 2016 for 6 months for benefit fraud- more shock.

Well I never grin.

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 19:41:36

What's with the sudden themed night?

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:42:10

Oh here we go- we have a THEME!

Will Megan have written an 'orignal' sappy movie 'style' song?

Or actually stick to the them and do a cover?

AuntieFox Sat 23-Nov-19 19:42:26

Evening ... obviously rooting for Jenny... (I want to go to the final 😂😂)

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:42:37

dillite maybe they've had complaints re- Megan. grin

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:43:16

Auntie that would be great- fingers crossed .

Nicole looks precarious in that top.

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:44:27

Oh lord.

I thought we were over The Greatest Showman.hmm.

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 19:45:58

Well DD is in live with these 3 now. She's there singing her little heart out along to them.

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:46:16

Is this the Greatest show though?


Sagradafamiliar Sat 23-Nov-19 19:46:15

That was shit!

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:47:09

dillite I am still recovering from dd1 tormenting me the film for months on end.

She has moved on to sweary hip hop acts she won't let me listen to.

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 19:47:16

Nick about to lose a boob or two

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:47:58

Don't hold back Sagrada grin

Yes it was.

Simon made 'for your Country' sound like they had been on a tour of Iraq .

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 19:48:49

raahh swear music isn't allowed in my house. Or anything really that I don't approve of.

Nicole's horny. She's going after my man. FUCK OFF NICOLE. HE'S ALL MINE!

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:49:02

dillite when she walked on, it was touch and go.

I hope there is some industrial tape there.

But by the end of the show, she will be away with the fairies, as ever, with her boobs on the desk. grin.

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 19:49:38

Is it just me or are those two pricks trying to slut shame Nicole...?

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:52:14

Destiny oh probably.

Good on her, I say, if anything is going on. Last time I looked , they were both consenting adults.

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 19:54:20

Have they changed the rules yet again? I swear I don't change knickers as often as Simon has changed the rules this year.

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 19:54:55

I do hope she doesn't sing This is Me.

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:55:27

dillite he just doesn't care anymore.

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:56:29

dillite grin

On no- worse. Sky fowl, tumbowl.

At least she can pronounce the words properly grin.

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 19:56:37

It's worse, she's doing Adele doing Apple Crumble!!!

AuntieFox Sat 23-Nov-19 19:57:33

I thought it was amazing

Sagradafamiliar Sat 23-Nov-19 19:57:33

I like Jenny but she sings like she's doing a big yawn.

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:58:03

See, I thought that was one of the worst Bond themes.

And then Sam Smith did his. Famously took 20 minutes to write. Really should have spent mpre time on it.

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 19:58:51

That dress would look so much better without those fancy dishwashing gloves

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 19:59:35

She has that weird voice like the woman from M People, not sure how to describe it...

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 19:59:43

Auntie I did like that (despite not liking the song- Bet she'd have done a great 'Diamonds are forever'). She looks great too.

Simon- it really isn't the best . At all.

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 20:00:30

That red hair suits her so well. I love it- the commitment to the maintenance as well.

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 20:00:47

I do quite like her tho tbh

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 20:04:31

I have almost finished my first pint of G&T

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 20:05:32

Everything that have done in the past? They only finished shitting in their nappies yesterday, how much is there to go over?

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:05:35

I had to go out on an emergency alcohol dash- even though I told myself we really needed dishwasher tablets.

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:06:45

Ooh, now those facial expressions.

That wasn't a great start vocally. But hey, it's the Wandies. grin.

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 20:07:42

They're going for the 1D nostalgia votes methinks!

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:08:44

That's a lot of distraction people on stage.

Is Simon going to end up dominating the final with his acts?

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 20:08:46

Do kids these days put posters up on their walls?

TheFairyCaravan Sat 23-Nov-19 20:09:16

Hello everyone. I've just turned over from Strictly. I haven't seen a full episode for weeks.

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:09:19

Well that is a very tenuous link, Simon. But hey- rules, eh?

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 20:09:58

Is it the same smiley blonde behind Simon this week as last? Wonder how much they pay her to sit there and smile every Saturday?

Sagradafamiliar Sat 23-Nov-19 20:10:45

I wonder who that woman is behind Simon?

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:10:54

dillite mine do- dd1 has mainly Billie Eilish and Stranger Things stuff on her wall.

DD2 has a large unicorn - that is scary in the dark. grin.

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 20:11:16

I guess if you were a 12 year old girl you wd love them

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:11:33

dillite I hope it's a lot. And they provide alcohol and ear plugs.

Sagradafamiliar Sat 23-Nov-19 20:11:35

Cross post dillite

TheFairyCaravan Sat 23-Nov-19 20:12:37

OMG! Please make it stop.

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:12:37

Is he deliberately making this crap?

Because he has sung better.

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 20:12:58

Oh fuck.

Booze. I need more booze.

I knew he would attempt to sing this week to ensure that he gets voted off and Simon's unable to force him to perform one more week.

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 20:12:58

Im sorry Vinnie lost his wife but my god HE CANNOT SING!!!

Sagradafamiliar Sat 23-Nov-19 20:13:05

I've never felt personally embarrassed watching someone before!

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:13:26

They've paid this rent-a -crowd a lot, haven't they?

FadingStar Sat 23-Nov-19 20:13:37

This is horrific. My poor ears!

Newjobnewstart Sat 23-Nov-19 20:13:40

Omg wtf is he doing

AuntieFox Sat 23-Nov-19 20:13:41

The blonde behind Simon is his PA

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 20:13:49

Ha ha The Sex Pistols dong Dirty Dancing!!!!

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 20:13:50

I feel like I will need some PTSD treatment after this "performance".

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 20:13:49

He is dreadful!
Dearie me

TheFairyCaravan Sat 23-Nov-19 20:13:55

This is awful

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:13:59

I think his dancing is better than his singing.

NoisyBrain Sat 23-Nov-19 20:14:04

Ooops! Totally missed the early start time.

Jesus tapdancing Christ wtf was that Vinnie?!!

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:14:39

Oh, Auntie thank you!

Oh shut up Louis. It was terrible.

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 20:14:40


The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 20:14:38

Louis says the same thing every blooming week!

TheFairyCaravan Sat 23-Nov-19 20:15:02

I wasn't having the time of my life. Trust me

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 20:15:47

Louis has his catchphrase bingo card and he's not allowed to go off script.

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 20:16:22

I remember when hebwas a genuine hard man. WTF happened...?

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 20:16:22

I missed a few as dh likes strictly!
What did I miss?

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 20:16:50


Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:16:54

I'm glad I've never experienced Megan before this.

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 20:17:10

Destiny, ok!

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 20:17:58

What did max n Harvey do?
Megs doing Christmas ! Bit early ..

Roussette Sat 23-Nov-19 20:18:19

I've just come on to say that VinnieJ is absolute crap. Can't sing, can't dance and I could say worse here, but I'll restrain myself grin

It's no wonder that I watch SCD instead grin

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:18:32

She's making it as yawnsome as her original stuff.

NoisyBrain Sat 23-Nov-19 20:18:35

And here we have Megan's attempt at a Christmas number 1 I suppose

dillite Sat 23-Nov-19 20:18:54

That slit is so unnecessary. One wrong move and we get to say hello to her flappy bits (there's a story there behind the flappy bits)

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 20:18:56

Rou, strictly is much better but the thread on here is much better!
Megs is very annoying.

Destinysdaughter Sat 23-Nov-19 20:19:03

So tired of these sob stories. Prince, Madonna, George Michael, Michael Jackson all had troubled backgrounds but they didnt bleat about it, they just put that into their music. I DONT CARE HOW MUCH YOU WANT IT!

Matilda2013 Sat 23-Nov-19 20:19:18

I haven't watched this since the first episode and turned over to vinnie Jones... I miss the days of my Shayne Ward obsession!

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:19:31

Max and Harvey did One Direction.

I've already forgotten which song.

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 20:20:02

Nicole, if you walked the streets looking like that.. I dead to think! Just don't

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 20:20:46

A hit record? Never ..

Roussette Sat 23-Nov-19 20:20:52

Rou, strictly is much better but the thread on here is much better!

Oh yes. I can't go on SCD thread, I just drink instead haha

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:21:12

No it doesn't- that version wasn't in a film.

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Nov-19 20:21:34

Don't go near the SCD thread. They are scarier than Vinnie J in a pork pie hat.

Raahh Sat 23-Nov-19 20:22:01

Oh Megan- you've been ear marked for the final since Simon signed you up.
