So after two weeks what X Facts have we learnt? Well, for starters, Mel B is the harshest judge ever. She behaved as if auditioning for Wicked Witch of the West rather than passing an opinion on whether members of the public could sing. Secondly, among the usual array of deluded and deranged attention–seekers, there have been some outstanding performers with Ella Henderson already being widely tipped for the final.
Expect more tantrums, triumphs and shocks, all of which will be signposted by heavy-handed editing, startled grimaces and dramatic music, just in case we’re too dumb to work out what’s going on.
Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger, Tulisa and Louis Walsh continue their tour of six major cities, giving their verdicts on another line-up of would-be chart stars, from genuine hopefuls to the completely hopeless. Mel B joins the panel in Manchester and Anastacia is a guest judge in Glasgow as hundreds of hopefuls try to prove they have what it takes to be the next pop sensation. The judges have already spotted some great potential this year, such as songwriter Ella Henderson and shy supermarket worker Jahmene Douglas, while other contestants have entertained for all the wrong reasons. Dermot O'Leary offers words of encouragement backstage as well as a shoulder to cry on for those who fail to impress.
