[Video] X Factor Final Press Conference and Duets Revealed!…

The X Factor final Press Conference which took place yesterday, revealed all the exciting plans for this weekend’s X Factor final at Wembley Arena!

The one aspect of the final I tend to look forward to the most each year is the duets – but this year it is set to be an all new format. Instead of the finalists performing a duet with various artists, this time they will be performing with their own mentors! So no pressure Gary, Kelly and Tulisa! Ironically I think it’s the judges that are going to be judged – a taste of their own damn medicine – and it would surely be shameful if they get upstaged by the amateurs! (hehehe)

So which songs will the duets be performing…

Well Gary has confirmed that he and Marcus will be singing Billy Joel’sAlways A Woman’ which is said to be dedicated to the finalist’s mum. (They’re gonna shut it DOWN!)

Tulisa and her “little muffins” will be performing a mash-up of Alicia Key’sEmpire State Of Mind’ and ‘If I Ain’t Got You’. (Yep they’re sure to bring the house DOWN with that one).

And finally, Amelia Lily and Kelly Rowland will be performing Ike and Tina Turner’s classic ‘River Deep, Mountain High’ – and in the words of Kelly Rowland, they’re gonna “put it DOWN!”.

So can comeback kid Amelia Lily take the winner’s crown? Can cutie Marcus steal even more of the viewers’ hearts and become the X Factor champion? Can Little Mix win the competition and make X Factor history!?

And to top off the weekend’s events, Coldplay, Michael Buble, Leona Lewis, One Direction and JLS will be gracing the stages on Sunday night! I for one cannot WAIT for the phenomenon that is the X Factor final to commence!


Beyonce Reveals Her Life’s Lessons, Personal Achievements and Her Future Plans On “Piers Morgan Tonight”…

Piers Morgan meets up with Beyonce in London for an intimate interview for CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight”. The singer speaks on her glistening and thrilling performance at Glastonbury, empowering women through her music, and NOT retiring any time soon which was the tiny part of the interview that was hugely wonderful to hear :-D. Beyonce also discusses her appreciation for her achievements, as she took time out of the spotlight, allowing time to reflect on her career to date, and enjoying her success.

As a major fan of the feisty singer, I admire her highly for fact that she has remained humble throughout her career and it was real intriguing hearing all her personal stories 🙂

Check out the full interview below…


NEWSFLASH! NEWSFLASH! Cheryl Cole Sings LIVE !

I watched Alan Carr ‘Chatty Man’ last night and I was surprised to see Cheryl Cole perform her latest single ‘The Flood’…LIVE! This is a track that I instantly adored from first listen and this was the first time I personally saw her perform this single. I must say I hated her acoustic performance of ‘Promise This’ – her voice fails to shine over a stripped down composition, what were they thinking!? Her voice is not bold enough to carry this kind of minimised sound – definitely was not feeling that one AT ALL…but ‘The Flood’ was nice. It was pure and it was decent. It was just refreshing to hear her LIVE vocals rather than hearing the pre-recorded version – she has finally proved that she can ‘sing’ LIVE therefore her critiques can finally rest themselves!


Rihanna and Christina Aguilera Receive Over 1000 Complaints for “raunchy” X Factor Performances…

Following the sexually enticing routines from Rihanna and Christina Aguilera on Saturday’s X Factor Finale, both ITV and Ofcom received over 1000 complaints from viewers. They were said to be unhappy with the revealing and suggestive nature of the singers’ performances considering the fact that the talent programme is a family show.

Christina Aguilera’s performance of ‘Express’ wasn’t really to my taste, not that it was bad or I thought that her dancers wearing revealing lingerie was inappropriate – I just didn’t get excited. But she undoubtedly has one of the most incredible voices which she uses so effortlessly. Rihanna definitely heated up the stage with her performance of ‘What’s My Name?’ which I personally enjoyed (not sure about her taste in bikini though). Yes she exposed a lot of skin while she was grinding to her latest single which was maybe not suitable viewing for a family show, but I just saw it as a fun performance which took me right back to the Caribbean – I found it hugely entertaining so I certainly was not one of the many who were complaining!

The entertainers are hardly going to be bothered by a few complaints though as they’re not really doing their careers’ any harm; infact the singers’ “raunchy” X Factor performances positively contributed to both their careers and even boosted the demand for Rihanna’s ‘Loud’ tour, leading to the addition of two extra concert dates in the UK. So I think they can handle this little negative press they have received don’t you?



The X Factor Finalists’ duets revealed! This will be an Exciting Show… :-)

So the four ‘deserving’ X Factor finalists revealed in a press conference earlier who they will duet with in Saturday’s big finale. This is the part of the competition that I specially love the most and I am always looking forward to so it was great to finally hear which guest artists will be gracing the X Factor stage alongside the contestants this year…

I am particular excited to hear that Matt will duet with Rihanna – I can totally imagine that being an incredible performance! The gorgeous Rebecca will duet with Christina Aguilera who I believe is an amazing vocalist with one of the most powerful voices – a voice that may over-shadow our Rebecca’s? Hmmm. Then we have Cher who will duet with Will.i.am, as expected – looking forward to seeing how that will turn out – It will be extremely good, or really terrible. Lastly we have One Direction who announced that they will duet with Robbie Williams – the fact that the boys felt the need to repeat their duet at the end says it all – that is so dead. But I’m sure the boys will still do well.

But anyways, I am definitely excited about Saturdays X Factor final weekend and watching all of the performances, and of course, finding out who will be crowned the winner of X Factor 2010!


X Factor’s Cher – ‘Turn My Swag On’…Definitely one of my favourite auditions yet !!

This girl surely got people talking with this one boy – I truly believe she has huge potential to go far in this competition…


X Factor’s Shirlena Johnson-axed due to mental health problems…well who woulda guessed it!?

Here’s the woman herself with her ridiculously nutty rendition of ‘Mercy’ by Duffy if you missed it last Saturday…(or if you just wanna have a great big laugh all over again like me :-D)


The Return of the Factor! :-D

this is my show people! love it love it! -From the amazingly talented to the ridiculously dumb acts…pure entertainment 🙂

..and to celebrate the new series I thought I’d show some vids from the most successful acts that came out of the biggest talent TV programme ….. enjoy 😀
