A Short History of The X-Factor, Not In Ukrainian
Posted by at 3.49pm | 1 response | Fun, Television

So the X-Factor final is tonight. I’m not particularly interested since the main reason to watch the show exited a few weeks back.

I’m completely over the whole TV music show thing, mainly because it rarely delivers on its premise. For every Will Young and Leona Lewis there is a Michelle McManus, Leon Jackson or Steve Brookstein. Simon Cowell and his mates rake in the cash and everyone else gets trampled in the process (remember when the Christmas number one wasn’t a foregone conclusion?)

So rather than dwell on it, I’ll post this video from the BBC Comedy site, featuring Mr Saturday Night Telly Voice Man himself, Peter Dickson.

    That was totally not who I expected to have given you the most entertainment this series.
