X Factor semi-final  
Niki - has an amazing voice, but honestly? I can't see her in the charts. We're seeing a resurrection of the 80s (which scares the crap out of me 'cause it was bad enough the first time around) but I don't think the 80s power ballad is coming back. And Niki is a power ballad singer.

Rhydian - definitely has a future ahead of him in musical theatre, but really, he is a gimmick. But then, what do I know, The Darkness made a fair bit of money from being a gimmick.

Same Difference - Is this a sign that I'm getting old? I don't get them. I get a creepy vibe off them. They're too bloody cheerful and hyper all the damn time. I'm with Louis Walsh here.

Leon. Ah, Leon... he's got a good voice, he can hit bum notes now and then but I really think that's because of bad song choices. He's singing at his 'breaking point' a lot of the time because of the choices, and he comes through all the time. He is a sweetie, he's doing this to give his mum a better life. He's talented. He's cute. He's a sweetie.

Vote for Leon.

I can't believe I'm actually making a post supporting a bloody reality TV show...

btw, I was listening to this song in the ad break because I think Leon would nail it if he ever got the chance. I was a Wets fan in the late 80s and early 90s. Marti Pellow has an awesome voice and Leon could match it.

Dude. Seriously? Leather trousers? WTF? And crediting "How Sweet It Is" to Michael Buble? *sigh* You're young Leon, I know this, but seriously...

People - he is better than this. Trust me.

Hey now! I love 80's music...

Ah 80s music like Ultravox and some of the New Romantic stuff (Adam and the Ants for me!) is awesome, but Bonnie Tyler et al? *shudders*

Okay, just as long as there's no hatred of The Dead Kennedys or Altered Images going on...

well... Claire Grogan (or C.P. as she called herself for a while) played the original Kochansky in Red Dwarf. How could I not like Altered Images? (Although if I hear that 'Happy Birthday' song once more I think I might break something!)

Admittedly, Happy Birthday blows, but See Those Eyes will always be a favorite of mine. And how can you not love Dead Pop Stars?

I havn't really been watching X-factor this year, but from what I've seen of Same Difference I completely agree! However. I quite like Niki.

I'm wondering if the Same Difference thing is part and parcel of the whole package of me not really getting the whole High School Musical vibe either.

Niki does have an amazing voice, and I think she will be in the final, but past the show I don't think she's got much of a future.

Ditto. I loathe that movie. It's completely pointless and not to mention annoying. Wayyy to perky for my liking.

I was very surprised by the results tbh. I don't think I've seen enough of the show to pass judgment on her future career. We'll have to wait and see what happens ;)

Thank god I'm not the only one who was picking up on the creepy incest vibe there. Not that I think there is anything to it, but the preponsity to sing love songs to each other... I just don't get it.

She's crying to get votes (replying here 'cause I read the comment whilst replying...). I don't get it. The whole thing focuses around her and she's got an annoyingly nasal voice. He's actually a decent singer when he gets the chance, but she dominates.

Leon really should get through. I honestly don't know that he will, but you're right. He'll get a record deal out of it no matter what - even if it's from Elliot Davis...

(D'you know the Wet Wet Wet song I'm talking about in the post by the way? Leon would nail that song.)

I have no idea what you're talking about and this is a GOOD THING. This reality TV thing... it's EVIL. EVIL! *hangs garlic*

That being said, I'm not listening to Journey South or anything... *whistles*
