MarcelineTheVampireQueen Fri 30-Aug-13 13:50:34

I think she is pointing at the part of the body Nicole Shitzinger speaks out of..

V Excited for tomorrow!

Also v excited over here. Do we really think there is going to be a 5th judge? What is happening there?

P.S. OP - I loooooove Cool Whip

I think the 5th Judge will be Sharon O's dog or something.

Though they say on twitter that it is Simon by sattellite.

Can't wait. Am ridiculously excited.

And am convinced I will miss the finale by being in labour pmsl. Am due 20/12 and have seen every final so far. But it would be a nice reason to miss it I suppose.

Have said alway through this pg that once x factor starts I will begin shopping properly for him.

Just hope that the winner isn't called Sebastian as that is what we are calling baby lol.

Going to start watching again now Mrs. O. is back and that dreadful Tulisa is gone.

SayCoolNowSayWhip Fri 30-Aug-13 14:28:28

Definitely looking forward to Sharon's return. Think this may be the final series so hopefully they'll pull out all the stops!

SayCoolNowSayWhip Fri 30-Aug-13 14:29:15

And congrats Froubylou! Hope you get up see the finale in all its anticlimactic glory

Get *to see

Saw an article in the paper tonight saying there will be something they're calling the "cruel factor" where people at bootcamp stage will think they are safely through and then find someone else has been chosen instead. That sounds horrible if it's true.

Hurrah! X Factor!

You know this means <Christmas> is just around the cornergrin

Am I right in thinking they have knocked the live auditions in front of an audience thing on the head, and it's back to just being in front of the judges? I'm glad if that is the case.

Glad Sharon is back, not sorry to see back of Shitsinger. Has Tulisa been booted off too, after the drugs thing?

grin

Oooh I'm excited smile Always feels like Autumn is properly on its way when X factor starts.

I read on digital spy that Simon will be on the live shows as an impartial 5th judge with no category to mentor. Hope so!

I'm sure they've said EVERY year since Simon left that he was going to be there in some capacity.... I'll believe it when I see it.

Of course, they can always ask Robin Thicke to step in....

Raahh Sat 31-Aug-13 11:19:44

ewww- Robin Thicke. Just his name make me feel uncleangrin.

Of course, Cowell has the added distraction of pregnant girlfriends and pissed off ex-husbands. He might be busy. grin

I don't really like the audition bits, and every year say I won't watch, and every year I get sucked in from the off.

Jahmene was promoting his album in the big Asda the other week. In fact, I think he did a 'tour' of a few Asdas, pmslgrin

SayCoolNowSayWhip Sat 31-Aug-13 12:32:44

Oh me too Raah. Last year DH and I said determinedly 'We shall not watch the auditions!'
And yet there we were, glued to the goggle box. <sigh>
This year will be no different!

DH is going out tonight, and actually said 'Shall I cancel so we can watch X Factor?!' grin

<pokes head round door>

Every year I say I'm not doing it. And yet here I am.

And also <helpful> the fifth judge is YOU <points>, the great British public. They're launching a free voting app or something.

Dumpylump Sat 31-Aug-13 13:39:35

I'm in! Ridiculously excited...have already got special snacks and bottle of prosecco for tonight!
Dp is away so I'll be here looking for company - he pretends he doesn't like it, but he doesn't fool me smile
Am really looking forward to seeing how Mrs O behaves, and I wonder how Gary feels about having his head judge title taken off him by her

Raahh Sat 31-Aug-13 14:10:41

Sue! knew you wouldn't be able to stay away...grin

I wonder if this year will produce anyone creepier than Nanfucker?

grin

Boffles and I deliberated long and hard about giving it up as a bad job, but we caved.

Raahh Sat 31-Aug-13 18:11:55

It's probably the last year- then we'll only have 'The Voice' (gawd help us!)grin

I need to dust off my bingo card...

They've made the auditions even more complimacated this year - something like audition for the panel on the Sat and an audience on the Sun - presumably same song? Dunno. But sounds too much for me to follow.
And I shall miss Shitsinger, I liked her by the end.

Whatever happened to singing in a conference room in Birmingham in front of screens with past winners on, with Dermot hovering in the lobby? And the judges sitting in front of a big window, pretending to drink Coke? I miss that. The good old days. T'were all fields and fighty toothless wannabees.
