X-Factor, Nov. 16 – Searching for a Definition of Rock

Well, Paula Abdul only has one group left in her category on X-Factor, and being that the one remaining group was in the bottom two last week, it’s not looking good. Then again, it will be between her group and another act, so maybe the other judges will take pity on her and eliminate the other person. Nonetheless, if I was Lakoda Rayne, I’d definitely be worried. I’d also probably be fed up, as Paula was probably on their ass 24/7 since she didn’t have [...]

X-Factor, Nov. 10 – Weaker Category Takes Second Hit

It seems like it’s only going to get harder and harder to eliminate contestants on X-Factor. The talent there is just that good. There wasn’t anyone who performed last night that I thought … ehhh. There were a few who were a little less great than others, but no one was ehhh. I do worry for the performers who sang in the first few slots of the night, because since everyone did well, they might be easily forgotten. The final 11 take the stage for [...]

X-Factor, Nov. 9 – A Night at the Movies

It was definitely not a big surprise to see one of the groups go home last week on X-Factor. It’s their weakest category. Unless one of the soloists does really badly this week, I could see another group going this week. I think the soloists inspire way more votes. It’s Movie Night tonight, with all the performances coming from movie soundtracks. To go along with this theme, the finalists went to the premiere of Adam Sandler’s new flick, Jack and Jill. He seemed very gracious [...]

X-Factor, Nov. 3 – Will the Show Suck Without Them?

This is one of the fun parts of watching the X-Factor. It’s new to us, so we really don’t know what to think. It has Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul as judges, so we really want to make comparisons to American Idol, but it doesn’t really work the same way. For results shows, we know what to expect on Idol, a lot of fluff and a lot of drama and fakeouts, and only about seven minutes of actual results. What will we have tonight on [...]

X-Factor, Nov. 2 – The “Real Deal”

Simon Cowell announced tonight during the show that X-Factor has already been picked up by Fox for season two. That must mean it’s doing well. It’s understandable after last week. They have some stunning talent here, and while all the judges claim the category they mentor is most talented, the one that seems to blow everyone away each time is the Over 30, mentored by Nicole Scherzinger. These are people who wouldn’t ever be allowed on American Idol because of their age. X-Factor is showing [...]

X-Factor, Oct. 18 – Simon and His Plus One

Determining the top 24 or the top 20 is always a tough decision for the judges, and there always seems to be some audience favorites left out of the mix. But to take the final 32 and pare it down to the final 16 like this just seems like an impossible feat. I cannot think of 16 singers I want to get rid of tonight. Regardless, it’s going to happen. The judges will be paring down their groups, eliminating half of them. There’s going to [...]

X-Factor, Oct. 16 – Day Late and $5 Million Short

It’s been hard to find this episode of the X-Factor. It aired on Sunday night after the episodes were juggled last week due to baseball playoffs on rain delay. I knew it would be on Sunday night, and just assumed my DVR would catch it. It didn’t, and that’s because either UVerse or Fox didn’t change the programming lineup to reflect the change. The DVR listings still said Simpsons, Family Guy, et al., would be aired. I realized that eighteen minutes into it, and hurriedly [...]

X-Factor, Oct. 13 – Showing Up a Day Late

If you’re a contestant on X-Factor this week, are you more excited  to still be in it, making it through the auditions and Las Vegas, or are you more excited to be going to the home of one of the judges, the person who will serve as your mentor throughout the competition? One week they’re someone who has always had the dream to be a recording star, but has been living an everyday existence, and now they’ll be spending time at Simon Cowell’s home, or [...]

X-Factor, Oct. 6 – “From Skid Row to Here”

So far, the X-Factor is seeming like a mix of American Idol and The Voice. They’re being put in ensembles to narrow down the finalists, yet after that, the judges will act as mentors to them. My only complaint is that some of the “chosen ones” don’t have “it,” and just have a good voice. Tonight we’ll see the last of the ensembles and find out who the final thirty-two are, and who their mentors will be. The first ensemble up tonight is comprised of [...]

X-Factor, Oct. 5 – Looking for an “All-Arounder” 

One of the best things about watching the X-Factor is that it’s all new. That’s the problem with watching American Idol, Survivor, Dancing with the Stars, etc. We’ve seen it all before and know exactly what’s going to happen, save for a twist here and there. However, X-Factor is all new. We’re done with the auditions, Tonight is Boot Camp, and we have no idea what that entails. That’s exciting. The contestants are split into four categories – the Boys, the Girls, the Over 30s, [...]
