GAME 4 THROWS A CURVE BALL AT FOX
Fox fans didn’t get to see the X Factor that we saw on CTV last night. Rain at Game 4 of the American League Championship Series caused the cancellation of Wednesday night’s X Factor episode.
As a result, in case you missed X Factor- Wednesday’s episode on Fox will now air tonight and tomorrow night’s episode will air on Sunday. Huh?
CTV however aired the Wednesday episode last night although without the Fox feed, CTV was as confused as a fart in a cane chair and aired the same cluster of commercials three times at 8 o’clock before they got it right. Now, I’m REALLY looking forward to that Mentalist episode that they kept promoting..haha.
LOVE THAT LAWN FURNITURE
Basically, contestants got to hang with their X Factor coaches ( Simon, LA Reid, Paula and Nicole) at their homes and sing for them.
We had a good group on Facebook blogging live about the X Factor shenanigans.
We are SO mature. But ti was a great time dishing, laughing..and oh ya, enjoying a glass of red wine or two.
DOES SIMON SHOP AT RONA?
The X Factor judges homes were, of course, stunning.
“Forget the singing, I want LA Reid’s back deck and lawn furniture,” blogged Dianne.
Yes, LA Reid gets the award for best backyard but it was in the Hamptons. I kept expecting Barbra Streisand from The Mirror Has Two Faces to walk around the corner and ask for a cup of sugar.
Simon had a beautiful home in the French countryside but he looked like he had some sort of pressure treated wood surrounding his pool.
THE X FACTOR SINGERS
Then of course, there were the nervous auditions. Rihanna sat in with LA Reid but a lot of the time, she looked like she was filing her nails and flipping through magazines, waiting for it to be over.
There was boy band The Anser which had Sabrina asking what was the Q’estion?
But they brought their game faces (sans Sally Jessie Raphael red glasses) and did a pretty cool job.
Anna wanted to know if Mormon boy band ‘The Anser’ knew how many drinking references were in the Pink song that they covered?
I’m guessing they didn’t but one of Mitt Romney’s people or X Factor handlers probably called them and told them afterwards.
James Brown impersonator Dexter didn’t have a stellar X Factor performance but he had all of us on-line wanting Hollywood to give him some sort of a break. I honestly think he would do extremely well in Vegas. He just needs to stay on the show a little longer to build up a following.
DID SIMON GET IMPLANTS?
We all agreed that Simon is kinder and gentler and god forbid, almost sexy this season.
What’s missing this season from Simon are the man boobs- the Moobs. I think he’s got implants or something. Seriously, or he has been working out ferociously with his Abs of Steel DVD.
Paula looks calm and mellow. I think Simon is taking her pills.
BACK TO THE X FACTOR SINGERS
Stacey Francis did an amazing version of Purple Rain- so much so that it was a group consensus that we would buy the CD if she were to release it tomorrow.
Elaine the wedding singer blew it out of the park. She was so confident and calm.
Duran Duran/ Elvis impersonator Nick Voss blew it. Tears for Fear would have been both Tearful and Fearful if they saw his X Factor rendition of their song.
WHERE DID THIS GUY COME FROM?
X Factor surprise of the evening- LA waiter James was amazing and really rocked it which made Kim blog that she wished that Rock Star and Dave Navaro were back on the air. I agree.
Finally 14 year old Drew calmly sat down and sang a soulful ballad to Simon. Simon almost looked confused. He had to re-adjust his sunglasses and fake pecs a couple times.
X FACTOR REALITY CHECK
X Factor may not be the best show on tv but trust Simon to find contestants that have raised the American Idol bar!
Stay tuned next Wednesday at 8 pm for another LIVE Reality Check with X Factor.
