The X Factor 2017

Postby LustForLeith » Sun Oct 15, 2017 3:13 pm

What's everybody's thoughts on this years series?

I like Grace a lot and she's an early favourite but she only sings her own original songs. Cracking as they may be, they're still her own songs!

I noticed New Girl Band were quoted at 25/1. They light not be that popular as one of grit members dumped her former band to be with them but I'm sure I read in The Sun they were put together for a reason.

Going to watch tonight's episode but at this point Nicole has a fight in her hands...

You know I'm usually quite opinionated when it comes to X factor but haven't really taken a solid position this year.

I kicked myself for not taking the 9/2 after the first show on her - but I'm even more disappointed that the cutkelvins don't seem to be favoured (all the hallmarks of a potentially successful group).

With a reduced number of live shows and eliminations on both Saturday & Sunday nights, as a betting spectacle I'll be taking a backseat as far too unpredictable.

That being said, perhaps I should just back Grace and get it done with. They're clearly pushing new material / songwriters as look how many performed their own songs in first auditions this year compared to years gone by.

Are they changing the format or are there still going to be themes i.e. disco week, Louis week etc.

If so surely the original singers are going to struggle although I think Grace is a worthy favourite.

Worth noting in that there's a slight change as to how things will work this year...

I generally don't care about "TXF" now as I've mostly given up on it.

Still not watching it so am not really covering it this year as I generally don't care but Grace Davies won a public vote ahead of Rak-Su (!?) to win a prize.
