X Factor goes Euro-trash in the weakest series yet

By Jim Shelley 11/10/2010

Week one of the Live shows and X Factor turned into Eurovision.

Italy's Nicolo, Ireland's Mary Byrne, Germany's Wagner (Bill Bailey), zany Euro-trash Diva Fever, girl group Belle Amie, boy bands F.Y.D. and 1 Direction... this is the weakest X Factor yet.

Overnight it became a procession of novelty acts: Katie in her Roman gladiator hat; Storm and his purple hair; MC Cher, the mini-Cheryl "rapper" from the mean streets of, um, Malvern.

An interminable parade of holiday camp charisma and weedy drivel, there were only a handful of performances you could actually say had serious pop star potential or talent: Matt, Rebecca, Treyc, and Aiden.

Ironically, the weaker the candidates, the harder they find it to evict anyone.

They've expanded the categories, created bands out of rejects, rewarded "characters" who fall apart and handed out wild cards.

Other irritants: Dermot O'Dreary's trans-adlannic accent; Grannii Minogue's hair; the judges talking to the acts as if they had styled themselves when it's pretty obvious: they're all puppets.

Agreed, also Dannii misjudged how to pitch Nicolo BIG time and it showed in that we lost him over shit acts like Wagner and Storm 'Desperate' Lee. Also agreed with Cheryl (she put it clumsily though) that Nicolo wearing sunglasses throughout the performance lost him his much needed 'connection' with the audience. It distanced himself from them and at a time when Cher and Katie were getting all the PR he lost out as we only knew him from his 'diva' label.

Also hated the 80s vibe (did Sinitta do that?) Simon gave Diva Fever. I know they're as camp as tits but still, no need to throw every gay stereotype at them
