It is this time of year when I find myself hooked to the X-Factor again! Yeah I know. But this year is a little different, as there is an act from Reading, in Danyl Johnson, that I can really support. In fact W has made our first phone vote just now. We both feel that he’s talented. So it’s not just blind support for someone local.What is rather unfounded after today’s live performance was some of the judges kept attacking him for being over-confident, cocky and not likeable, despite a wonderful performance from him, and the last act to perform as well! Particularly coming from Louis, who put through an act in John & Edward who exhibits all the above attributes, barred the fact that they can’t sing! Come on, if they weren’t Irish, do you really think Louis would have put them this far? I very much doubt it. Louis is such hypocrit, and the other two judges obviously think Danyl is a huge threat, as he’s talented and is able to give a great stage performance. Other talented acts in comparison are good but just aren’t ready to give that kind performance yet. In a way it’s unfair to acts like Stacey, whom I like because of her personality, on top of her fabulous voice, but appeared to be struggling just to be on the stage. She reminds me of Phoebe in Friends, who I thought is just a fabricated character. So I find it funny, a bit surreal at the same time, to actually to see Stacey exhibiting the kind of qurkiness that Phoebe was acting :)I fear that the twins might progress to next week, considering that their performance was actually not as bad I hoped it to be. I think the girl groups and Jamie are vulnerable this week. I hope the twins won’t stay at the expense of Jamie, as I trully think he can do better than his performance this week.
