    :yikes:

    Bit of a shit week for Gamu. :(

    Kind of hard to believe that the X Factor production team didn't know this was coming potentially.

    I just wanna slap Cher. I hope the nerves will get the better of her asap!

    Nicolo reminds me a bit of Johnny :shuffle:

    Does the house husband have a husband or a wife?

    The over 28s is really a crazy category. Poor Sharon :rofl:

    Yep, he does. However since he did not look at the audience/judges that much I thought that he wasn't going to be picked. When he performed in front of Dannii & Natalie I thought that Dannii was going to crack up when she glanced briefly at Natalie. That song was a brutal choice for him, but I love it when he belts it out in falsetto (most people struggle just to reach falsetto).

    Glad he made it, and damnit I hope he looks at the camera!

    Does anyone know who the wild cards are?

    Will.i.am had chosen four and I can't believe that Cher or Katie were in his four cause he certainly didn't buy their drama. How did it all go so wrong?

    A wife apparently. :eek:

    I'd feel sorry for Sharon, but she's got so much plastic in her face now it really isn't her any more. :p

    As for being rid of Diva Fever.... :shuffle:

    The producers have been so lucky so far with all the drama and scandals.

    Mental ilness, prostitution and cocaine use, deportation to Zimbabwe...

    Poor Gamu and her family. They are already settled in the UK, her mother is trained and working as a nurse (that UK is really short of and needs) and they are going to be deported... So upsetting. :(

    I looked up Matt on youtube and wished this showed air here in Canada! But...I'm glad he likes the clothes he wore for his painting job. Will he change out of those clothes at some point during the series? :slinkaway

    I am so disappointed with the girls. Well done, Cheryl, you'll be down to one contestant in three weeks.
    And if Cher were eating at least a few calories per day she wouldn't be ill and didn't look like a granny!

    I am very excited about the other three categories :cheer:
    However, I wish someone had told Bel Amie (ouch, it hurts to write) how to spell correctly :shuffle:

    ITA about the girls. I was totally PML when they announced the name of the girl group as belle amie. However if you google the correct spelling you don't get info on a girl group, more to do with boys ;)

    Oh they ARE called Belle Amie? I thought it was Bel Amie. Then it is actually correct, my mistake.

    Bel Ami has definitely nothing to do with girl bands :p

    NON! :drama:

    I thought their first audition was sort of fun, but that's about it.

    Me too. What made the song work back then was the four different voices plus Scary Mary. Just one voices doesn't work.
    But hey, this song was no. 1 in New Zealand! :D

    I like them, they're cool. And compared to for example the Geeky boys, they are so natural and don't seem to try to be something.
