Hey, Kimberly, you weren't THAT bad...

...you were bleedin' AWFUL!

As were most of the acts on the first studio shows of X Factor. First night nerves got the better of everyone, but more than that, why the big, staged numbers? Obviously, it gives Brian Friedman a reason to exist. I think he thought he was on the wrong show... It ain't The Krypton Factor, honey! (A bland 80s quiz show with a legendary army assault course finale). He not only made one act, Alisha, step through a hoop, but she had to come down stairs on the other side in six-inch heels. And he was so supportive: "If she even thinks she's going over in those heels, she will. It's a disaster waiting to happen". Gee, thanks, Bri. Break them in gently Simon, Dannii, Sharon and Louis, why dontcha... And Kimberly's song chosen by Sharon? It's Raining Men. *the sound of the wind whistles through the room with a lonely bell tolling mournfully in the background*

And why has Shazza had Kimbo styled as Kelly? Did she really think that would help her GAIN votes.

For what it's worth, Kimberly Southwick seems Teflon coated. On GMTV this morning, (go here), she explained why it went wrong, (not that hard, love), but is quite sanguine about the whole experience. Thankfully, she isn't going down the "This is just the beginning, you haven't seen the last of me" route. Next week, we'll have forgotten anyway. C'est la vie.

I have all these episodes of X Factor backed up on my computer waiting to be watched, I'll get around to it on the weekend I reckon. If hours of Dannii pleasure isn't enough to convince me to do that come Saturday, thoughts of that picture of Dermot working the suit should tip me over the edge.

Check out Nikki, the favourite so far. They all kind of pale in comparison to Leona and that voice though...

Will do. I know that I have to report back to both yourself and Paul with my X-developments once I get into it, so I'll be expect an email at some point...
