I was trying to work my way back, as I know they usually release the winning single around the beginning of December, hoping for it to be the Christmas number one, then there are 9-10 weeks of live shows before that, then 'judges' homes' (ha!), boot camp and auditions before that.
I know I need to get out more, but this is one of the very few telly progs that I watch!
lol! Ahhh, the memories, Saturday nights mumsnetting about the crap singing- you have to join in with the x-factor drinking game, too. Spot the clche- 'you made that song your own' 'you owned the stage' 'you picked the wrong song- but it was your mentor's fault' 'you remind me of a young mariah/westlife/michael buble' etc etc I need to get out more , too...
I was in the audience of the Bootcamp show which was at the hammersmith Apollo last Saturday. The level of talent was already so high, I've heard this year has been the most talented so far (lots of real singers entering now they've seen Leona Lewis' success).
I think they normally televise in Sept to have finals @ christmas...apparently there is a young man whos tipped to win who sings Westlife and he has Aspergers...GOOD LUCK to him if he can stand the pressure x
So excited!!! It's on this Saturday. Wondering if my DSis will feature in the first episode. I didn't see her in the promo for it, so hopefully they're saving her for 'later' on in the series.
Now, anyone who's watched previous series... Do they usually 'big up' contestants who make it to the lives in the earlier episodes or do they generally gloss over their earlier auditions only to bring them to the fore closer to the lives?
