Apart from that there wasn't much else to shout about. I'm just getting tired of the way the audition shows are put together, if I'm honest. There's far too much flannel, far too much padding-out of the shows, and not enough time given over to allowing us, the viewer, to actually see enough auditions. I mean, on last Saturday's show it took nigh on ten minutes after the programme had started before we got a chance to hear any singing at all, and I use the term "singing" extremely loosely. There's also way too much emphasis put on the judges. And it shouldn't be about them. Personally, I couldn't give a frig who was doing the judging. It could be four random people off the street for all I care, in fact, I reckon it would be much more interesting if it was four random people sitting behind that judges desk. We'd probably get far more honest opinions, and I dare say we'd get the rubbish weeded out a lot quicker too.
Right, well, there's not much else I can say about last Saturday's show really. It was same-old same-old, and I guess that's pretty much what we're going to get all season. But at least there's one bright shining light out there on the horizon - it's only a couple of weeks until the launch show for 'Strictly Come Dancing 2012'! And I, for one, literally cannot wait! And then ' X Factor Monday' will become 'X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing Monday'. Bring it on!
