    X Factor UK 2011

    Anybody else watching?
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Since it seems no-one else was , here are a few of last night's auditions:

    Janet Devlin from Norn Iron

    Frankie Cocozza Avoid if you don't want to see male bum

    Kitty Brucknell This year's Katie Waissel minus the likability.

    Goldie Cheung

    I'm determined not to get drawn in this year... but saw the Tyrone girl's audition on youtube - wasn't that impressed.

    Too early to make any judgements on performance or how they'll do but
    Frankie what a big head He reminded me of a young David Essex
    Girls love him already
    Kitty I disliked immediately .Great voice but there was something about her .She seemed over confident .Telling people they could sell her autograph on Ebay
    Little Janet what a sweetie Reminded me a little of Diana Vickers but better.

    Thanks for posting.
    Couldn't watch last night but have mixed feelings about this year's show. To be left with Louis out of all the four judges is a bit

    Did Goldie make it through by the way?

    Even though I think Gary Barlow is totally I think he is completely as a judge. It doesn't help that he speaks slowly and sounds like a simpleton. Also he's apparently a really nice guy in real life, so trying to play at being Simon Cowell really doesn't suit him.

    Kelly Rowland was a surprise - she seemed brilliant as a judge.

    Tulisa seems nice enough, but i had to laugh at a scene from a "coming soon" where she appears to criticise someone's singing ability and they reply with something like "that's rich coming from you" as I'm inclined to agree

    I have to say that overall I really liked the show, the audition stages are the most boring episodes to me, but they seem to have dedicated the larger part of the show to the good people, especially the ones that are mentalists that seem like the will be utter crap and then have a passable voice (I'm think the mental blonde girl whose eyes are scarily close together) rather than the car crash awful ones which just annoy me.

    I may get sucked into this series yet.

    I'm going to enjoy watching Janet grow in confidence.
    They are right...she doesn't know how good she is, or can be.
    She will, though, by the end of the process.

    It was a pleasure to hear her.

    What do you mean by this? Not available in your country or you're purposely not going to watch this season?

    Louis seems slightly likeable this year, and Gary seems like he has a pickle stuck up his you know what.

    Kelly Rowland is the best judge evah!

    I just wish they got rid of Louis.

    And if there was still anybody who didn't realise that Gary Barlow is an ass, there's your confirmation.

    All the contestants on the first show (other than the amazing Goldie Cheung ) were so annoying.

    Frankie and Kitty seemed like total assholes and Janet's heavy breathing, that she wasn't controlling whatsoever, made it impossible to focus on her singing. Yes, she has potential but needs loads and loads of work. She should come back next year.

    I've watched a bit just to see how Kelly Rowland is doing as a judge and I think she's great so far. She should replace Jennifer Lopez or Randy Jackson or both on American Idol.

    Four weeks into the show and I finally managed to catch some of the action.

    I'm surprised at how quickly I got used to the new judges. Kelly is a natural and she's completely taken over the panel. I'm also rather amused by the constant smirk on Barlow's face.

    Here are some of the high (and low) lights of this week's show.

    Rumours of Cheryl coming back to the judging panel (possibly in Tulisa's place) emerged a couple of days ago:

    I do too which means we're probably both wrong.

    Love, love Kelly Rowland.
