    I don't need to educate myself, because I knew who it was. What I'm saying is is that a quick glance of the X-Factor judging table looks like the American Idol judging table, even down to the seat placement.

    Loved the 18 year old who sang the Beyonce song.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I'm about to watch the repeat on ITV2 Flo, I don't think I'll last after Cheryl's gone, she was about the only reason I was watching it.

    For some of the acts, I keep waiting for the buzzer to go off.

    I was over the reaction. Has she never seen a penis?

    I actually think the UK X Factor has a better judging panel this year.

    The Soup had some fun with "Siameze" [ really? Siameze?] ... laughs at his singing, at his dancing, but mostly at the grapefruit he apparently had stuffed into his tightie jeans.

    Same here. But they do have a buzzer - Simon just holds up his hand when he wants the music stopped. So he just chooses not to use it.

    Do you mean of the contestants, or otherwise?

    I think that was me. She's fabulous. Sincere, enthusiastic, straight-talking, totally committed to the project and so funny. 5 minutes watching Kelly on UK XFactor holds waaaaay more entertainment for me than the whole two hours of the US version had to offer.

    Hmm, apparently one of the contestants is a little less of a struggling wannabe than X Factor would have us believe.

    The second biggest crock of this new TV season is The X-Factor (Wednesdays on Fox and CTV, 8 p.m.). The first episode the other night climaxed with the “discovery” of Stacy Francis, an African-American, 42-year-old single mother of two with a spectacular voice. She explained that a guy she was involved with told her she didn’t have talent and pushed her around. Part of her story is no doubt true, but the suggestion that Francis is an unknown, a mere aspirant to singing stardom in her 40s, is nonsense. A reader here in Toronna, a performer in musical theatre, wrote to let me know that she watched the staging of the Stacy Francis segment with some astonishment. The reader pointed out that Francis is a veteran of Broadway musicals and originated the role of Rusty in the first production of Footloose, in 1998, to considerable acclaim.

    Francis also starred in Broadway productions of Street Corner Symphony and Smokey Joe’s Cafe. It took 30 seconds on Google to verify this. The X Factor feels like a con as well as a crock.

    That is ridiculous. It is fine to allow whomever you want to audition but don't pretend she is some middle aged woman who was never given a break. She got on Broadway for goodness sake! I would say she has had more than a fair chance to become rich and famous. Some of the contestants have already been doing media rounds which I find really unfair. They shouldn't be allowed to do this until the finals are decided. It gives them an early advantage and plus it pretty much tells us who the production is picking for the finals.

    Did she conceal her background from the producers?
    If not, they might as well admit a "set-up".

    At least, the public could then decide how they feel about it, with their votes.

    So the inference is that reality TV...is not real?

    I was when she said that she'd seen all of China after Goldie flashed her lady garden at the judges the other night.

    Even if she did conceal her past it isn't as if the producers didn't bother to look up who she was. The audition was filmed long before and if this is anything like American Idol, only a select few get to audition in front of the judges on the main stage. Her audition process started before she ever got on that stage and they should have done a complete background check on her first. They knew.

    One of the best judges I've ever seen on music shows.

    I can believe that. I watched part of the US version debut show. So staged and the judges are boring, particularly the female judges.

    Paula´s reaction to the penis was fake. At one point she is shown peeking through her ponytail for another look and next she´s puking in the bathroom? I say someone started to pick up some of the audience were annoyed and she played offended

    Also not surprised to read that 42yo with the oppressive ex is a seasoned pro. This has also been done on the UK version that you recognize the signs. Most of the oppressed downtrodden auditionees who come out and amaze with their "hidden talent" have an old career or years of theater schooling behind them. When it's too good to be true it usually is. One of the things that confused me at the time about her was the age of her children. They were really young and yet presumably were the byproduct of oppressive ex so it seemed to me that that whole situation came about in her mid to late thirties so who was oppressing her the decade or so before that?

    I also think the US is too flooded with singing reality shows that I don't see this having the success it has in the UK.

    I thought last night was a bit better... fewer train wrecks and more folks folks with a glimmer of talent. Wonder if they re-cut the show after last week's reviews?
