Im sorry but i have to say that im a dedicated X Factor watcher, however i only really like watching when it gets to boot camp as i dont like watching the not so good people get booed, it makes me cringe!! I did watch the first episode and there were a few characters but noone amazing...yet! I do love it when u get someone who is amazing and blows u away, every year it suprises me that theres so much hidden talent still out there! I know many people slate the show but i think it gives everyone the chance to show off their voice that they may not have got elsewhere, its luck and who u know in this business and not everyone is lucky or knows someone! The only thing that really bothers me is that parents, friends etc tell people who really are not good that they are wonderful and give them false hope. The audition process is such that u will only see the judges after 2 or 3 prior auditions so obviously if u have got through these u will assume that u are talented and then the judges tell u the truth which often breaks hearts. Sometimes youve got to be cruel to be kind and i think it would be kinder to tell people who are thinking of auditioning if they can sing or not before they get there! Encouragement is great but outright lies are not!!!
On another note, i will miss Holly Willoughby on Xtra Factor (yes im sad enough to watch that too!!) and i dont think Konnie Huq will be a patch on her. Thank goodness we've got Holly and Phil back on This Morning soon
