THE X FACTOR UK Is Back! Comments (0)

X-Factor-Louis-Walsh-Sharon-Osborne-Nicole-Scherzinger-Gary-Barlow-2233292Featured post written by Sarah Fielding.

It’s back, back, back! Saturday and Sunday nights are now off limits for any kind of social life in the UK—The X Factor is bringing its ever popular formula of talent show, reality TV, sob story-fest and pantomime to our screens once again.

The X Factor UK is the most popular TV talent show in Europe, and the most watched. That’s pretty huge, and even though it’s now been going for what seems like aeons, the juggernaut is showing no signs of slowing down.

This year sees yet another judges panel switch with the shock return of Sharon Osbourne. One of the original four judges from the show’s very start, she has fallen out spectacularly with colleagues over the years. She apparently made Danni Minogue blub just before the live show cameras rolled and she managed to throw water over Louis Walsh on live TV twice. He did accuse her of being on drugs though, so it’s probably fair enough,.

Along with Sharon is, of course, Louis himself, Gary Barlow (a sort of lukewarm Mr. Nasty in Simon Cowell’s place) and Nicole Scherzinger who actually brings some life to the show in a nice, sparkly way.

How this particular panel combination will work throughout the series remains to be seen but, so far, the indications are that they’re gelling well. We are, of course, only in the preliminary rounds which this year start with an audition in front of the judges followed by a live audition in front of 4,000 people. Then comes boot camp, judges houses and the coveted live finals.

So far, we’ve had a prison worker who stunned the panel and various acts who are coming back for a second, third, even fourth bite at the X Factor cherry. Even though a lot of past winners have actually faded into obscurity pretty quickly it hasn’t stopped tens of thousands of wannabes auditioning, begging, crying, talking about their dead grandparents and, occasionally, singing in a bid to get a spot on the show.

So popular is the series these days that betting on The X Factor has become a huge thing - if you’re a big fan and good at analysing the odds early on (try sites like Freebets to give you a good rundown of the odds offered by different bookies to help you decide) then you could potentially be in line to make a decent wad of cash out of this series.

It’s a bit early perhaps to be calling out likely winners but Sam Bailey, the previously mentioned prison offer, wowed the panel so much that she was immediately boosted to 6-1 odds to win by various bookmakers. It’s up to you to decide whether the recent press regarding her secret professional singing past will affect her odds—it could be worth hanging on and waiting for a bit before deciding who to back.

Mika-2
Two exclusive shots of Mika in Italy, just after completing judging duties on X Factor in Genoa. Wish he were a judge on an American show; I'm sure he has a lot of insight and would charm audiences.

Britney-spears-the-x-factor
According to RadarOnline.com, Britney Spears has to share a cellphone and her Internet usage is monitored (with blocked Web sites to keep her from reading negative articles) as part of her never-ending conservatorship.

If she's this fragile, how is it okay for her to tour and now to sit on the panel of a stressful, at times emotional show where she is criticizing others? I'm not a shrink, but this all seems counterproductive.

With thanks to Brad: The above, apparently real gif, speaks for itself. I wonder if her conservator gets to call in and override Britney's input? At least Britney is a bona fide star, one in possession of whatever the legendary X factor of her new gig's title is.
