X Factor 2010

Orlaith Hurley gives us the essential guide to this year’s singing bunch.

It’s that time of year again, X factor season, and with every season comes more controversy. From Cher Lloyd’s shaky performance to Gamu Nhengu being left out, tongues are wagging about whether Cheryl Cole is fit to be a judge. Her final three are Cher, Katie Wassiel and Sarah Ferguson.

The official view of X Factor is that Gamu’s Visa was about to run out but many believe it is all down to ratings. On Facebook a ‘’Gamu Should Have Got Through’’ page has over 127500 fans which raises questions as to whether they’re looking for a star or entertainment. However people feel about it the top 12 have been chosen.

In Danni’s camp, Aidan Grimshaw, the hot favourite Matt Cardle and Nicolo Festa will go forth representing the boys. Amazingly both of the Simon Cowell-made bands, Belle Amie and One Direction will go on in the live shows as well as F.Y.D. Louis’ strange collection of over-28’s has been whittled down to John Adeleye, Tesco worker Mary Byrne and aging rocker Storm Lee. In all, it looks to have the bones of a really entertaining season.

However, with the scandalous auto-tuning of this season on top of all the pathetic hopefuls that received air-time, has X Factor gone to the dogs? Can it really call itself a talent show anymore when talentless twins Jedward are more successful than winners like Joe McElderry?

The more the X Factor continues, the more we get to thinking about the music industry in general and how a few select people on top like Mr. Cowell seem to control what’s hot and what’s not. Take the fact Diana Vickers, Olly Murs, Joe McEldery, Alexandra Burke and Cheryl Cole all have top selling singles out at the dawning of the new season.

Taking it at face value, it is undeniable that X Factor is one of the most entertaining shows to grace our TV sets each year. Providing the drama, the laughs and the knock-out performances, it’s the perfect blend for a Saturday and Sunday night in.
