'sup, any X Factor fans watching this season of the UK version?
The judges for this season are Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow, Tulisa and finally Nicole Scherzinger replacing Kelly Rowland.
First episode premiered yesterday and I must say that it was quite a good one. It had all the right ingredients: a top 5 of all time audition, the best original song ever sung in the audition phase, the most controversial audition ever, a "don't judge a book by its cover" shocker audition, the typical funny-bad auditions, hilariously bad judging and most important of all - no sob stories.
Only one episode this (last) weekend? I'm not in the UK so I don't watch it live.
That At Last guy is one of the absolute top talents to emerge from all of these talent and singing competitions ever, wow. Even makes me kinda suspicious a bit, given that there's no tweaking to be done on his voice at all (at least to my ear; I've sang in choirs a little and I rarely get to that point where I feel my voice is at its best) and he insinuates he doesn't sing that much.
The girl singing an original for her late granpa is very good, too, but a bit overhyped maybe.
As for the rest, some pretty good so far but none that've made a big impression on me.
LOL @ this Asian guy. He can't be real, right? A pretty good singer but he probably won't make it to the judges' houses (but if he will they'd better put him in Tulisha's team ). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-HBzI_5Sos
