Oh, hang on, just incase you have no idea what I'm going on about, let me remind everyone of what happened over the weekend on X Factor - which is now not just a singing competition. Apparently. Quick recap here - once again Jahmene and Ella stole the show, James was alright although not as good as he has been, in my opinion, Union J are still a cardboard cut-out boy band, District 3 need to have a word with Louis and tell him they're not playing second fiddle to Union J anymore, Christopher Maloney can undoubtedly sing but still sounds like he'd fare much better doing a turn down the local Haven Holiday Park, Kye was really good, and Rylan was, well, Rylan.
So, with the usual suspects through to next week, it was no surprise to finally see Rylan back in the bottom two last night, but a total surprise, for me, to see Kye there. In my opinion he's been getting better over the past couple of weeks, but there's obviously something about him the public aren't clicking with. Fair enough, I thought. I mean, this is the second time Rylan's been in the bottom two, and although the fiasco of a few weeks ago managed to save him from the boot, surely they wouldn't be stupid enough to do it again? Would they? Well, yeah. They would. But this time it wasn't Louis who'd had his orders to go to deadlock - it was Tulisa. And I just knew, I knew the second it went to deadlock that Rylan was going to be the one to be saved. And yes, I know that Kye got the fewest public votes, but, once again, as what happened with Carolynne back in week 1, it should never have gone to deadlock. I mean, come on! Clever ploy to wheel Rylan out at the sing-off with a slow ballad, but it was still screamingly obvious to even the most tone deaf that Kye sang a hundred times better. But, according to Tulisa, this isn't just a singing competition. Isn't it? Have you got your shows confused, love? Britain's Got Talent isn't just a singing competition, but I was under some quite obviously mis-guided illusion that X Factor was, actually, a singing competition. Am I stupid?
