X Factor aka Who will be SyCo's new Bytch?

I love the programme. It doesn't matter who is judging I just love me some X Factor. Cheryl Cole or no Cheryl Cole. Simon Cowell or no Simon Cowell I just love the format. It's for those desparately seeking fame at all costs. GREAT TV!

I hear the same old blah blah blah about how it's a chance but it's also GREAT TV. It's not talent show it's just a huge two hour extravaganza which makes prats of people. They sing and are paraded like performing monkeys in front of an audience and we are asked to contribute and subsidize this debacle by voting for our favorates. Briilant. Sometime we vote for who like or sometimes it gets really tatical. The media and everyone from the office, job centre and school play ground - lets not forget the pub get in on the act. We all become talent judges and critcal. GREAT TV. Then towards the end is the fight for Christmas Number One.  It's also a family show because it's something in which the entire family will have an opinion on. Great stuff. Love it or hate it - X Factor is great view. The bitching between the judges to the gullible contestants who never seemed to asked themselves if they were so talented how come they needed a TV show to get fame.  So they trade their dignity and self-respect to either gain favour with millions or be humilated. Right now people are still getting deals without riding on the XFactor wave.

After the auditions come the live shows and that's where the going gets tough. It's a brilliant piece of entertainment and the best thing on TV. And No I don't watch Strictly Dancing. It's not my thing.

Anyway I digress the live shows are where the judges play sycophantic (brown nosing) droning fans to contestants and tell them how brilliant they are. They too for some reason apart from the really old and mature ones lap it up. The tell them how brilliant they are, my favourite is Louie Walsh who goes on about 'You are born to be on this stage! You are a recording artist.' Okay. Louie is brilliant, old school and a dapper at this bullsh*t - he had being doing it for many years. The others from time to time have to look down - maybe at a script which may show it's not all original.

Tulisa is like 'You are my guilty pleasure. You may not be everyone's cup of tea but you are my cup of tea.' Not too sure I can do Kelly because she justs drawls in Texas. Gary Barlow is just Gary off Take That to me.


Regardless of the contestants, regardless of the winners, each year  X Factor rolls up and I love it! My guilty winter pleasure.  It's great entertaiment and good programming. Note to all contestants - there are two types of winners on X Factors.  Those who win the show and those who get record contracts and win a career. It's nice to be both but better to be in the latter group.

What I love about the show
When they want people to be voted off the show they just give them songs they can't handle or fudge up arrangements so the live show night they look stupid.

Highlights

Misha - the public does not get your style. They should just dress her like a normal lady and not like a fruitcake. Okay it is stylish but only if they you have the limbs of ether Alex Wek or Naomi Campbell. It was all Grace Jones get up - who is also tall and graceful. Just because it screams style does not mean it suits you. 
Vocally - she was brillant but however the song was rearranged for her range and voice. It will be interesting if they ever decided to give her a bad song. If they do - she should pull a Cher Loyd. I respect that chick. No one was going to mess her up!


Jenny Delvin. - she just sounds like every other Celtic folk vocalist. I did like her vocals this time around.


Frankie - you got tripped up boy! Even Louie was right there. That was a rubbish delivery.


The London Girl who fades from memory even though was on second to the last. You got stitched up ont the arrangements. There should have instruments supporting your bridge.  She gave a good perforamance but I can't seem to remember her name.


Kitty - well what can I say? Not really sure.
  
Wow!

Growing Up Hip Hop Episode 6 Season Finale: A Question for Romeo- The Virgin Queen Angela or sexy Kristinia 'The Missing Kardashian Sister' DeBarges.

To my surprise I found this was the season finale, and I think due the lacklustre performance and lack of promotion by any of the investors or stars it may not be commissioned for a second season. Frankly when I found out this was the final episode in the series I thought it was an anti climax. Why? Well the cliffhangers were Angela's stalker who no one really cares about, and also Romeo driving away to have a threesome probably fake with Kristinia 'The missing Kardashian sister' DeBarge and her friend Ashley.
Oh well let's starts with my observations of this show. Will I be watching it again? I don't know. They even seem to having a reunion.

Def Jam and Phat Farm Founder Uncle Russell Gives Angela Simmons A Piece of Mind The show kicks off with Angela Simmons sprawled out on her virgin white bedsheets when Uncle Russ gives her a call for an update on the stalker situation. She tells him she’s made contact with the stalker. 


Uncle Phat Farm Russ goes crazy and yell…

Basketball Wives season 5 - Episode 4: It's all about Evelyn missing wife-headpuncher Chad and Tami seeking drama over what Shaunie said to Tasha Marbury. Suzie Ketcham says jaw surgery was to correct assault on her jaw used as punching bag by some unnamed ex of hers

This was show all about Evelyn 'Will-I-go-back-to-Chad' Lozada and Tami 'I'll-punch-you-in-the-face' Roman.  It's got to be the most boring Basketball Wives I've watched.  And it was so boring so I'll just cover some points and in no particular order. I hope it makes sense in some way?

UPDATE: NOTE: Tami confirms in her blog that her mother died at Tami's home surrounded by her family - that is Tami and her two daugthers who were with her when she died.

Evelyn continues to whines about Chad Johnson Ochocinco


Evelyn goes on and on about Chad Johnson Ochocinco till at some point I start to feel sorry for the man. This is too bad because I can't believe that I feel sorry for Chad Johnson Ochocinco. Never thought I would say this. POOR CHAD. Seriously, Poor Chad Johnson Ochocinco. I really do feel for him because it's like an nightmare that will never end. For him and for us. Evelyn too because she has that horrible gash on her forehead. No …

R&B Divas LA season 1 episode 3: Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Lil’ Mo, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson all go to Vegas, Chante Moore is all about female empowerment and self-marrage, Dawn Robinson reveals more about her hurtful and abusive marrage also struggles to have a child,Lil Mo and Chante Moore save the day singing at Boardway in the Hood.

This show is pleasant, honest and easy to watch. I think they have go the balance right in this case because I can see people like Chante Moore, Lil Mo, Michel'le and to some extent Dawn Robinson not standing for any behind the scenes rubbish - however time will tell since it's still early days.
These women are hungry  in a different way to the ones in R&B Diva's Atlanta. With the exception of Claudette Ortiz- these are very cast full of strong women and know their worth! I say that because Claudette Ortiz is the youngest by a good few years.

So given that the foolery that is Basketball Balls Miami will be starting with Tami, Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neil soon this is a good cool down show.

Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz bond over  'All we have being through' discussions.

It kicks off with Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz all discussing the monologues. Yada, yada, yada they keep on talking.


 For the hundredth time in the show Dawn Ro…
