X Factor – The Sticky Fix
So, having not blogged in a long time, I find myself coming on to blog about none other than the X Factor.
I hope you all know it’s a fix by now. I’ve been watching it for too many years to think otherwise.
Sticky Problem Number One: Tonight’s Eviction
Aidan VS Katie
Okay, so pushing all thoughts of Wagner aside, why on earth was Aidan in the bottom two?
His intensity and presence on stage is just mind-blowing, while Katie just sits with her legs crossed crying trying to sing, ‘JUST PLEASE DON’T GIVE UP ON ME..’ (cue dramatic shot of her eyes and the tears falling from her tiny frame).
Time to Face the Facts:
Katie has been in the bottom two for four weeks. FOUR WEEKS.
Let’s be fair, this should be an automatic elimination for the contestant.
It is the first time Aidan has been in the bottom two, and also the last time.
Katie always sings better in the sing off.
I think she has perfected it now.
Simon and Cheryl are best friends.
Is Cheryl giving Simon the ‘I’m going to throw a massive temper tantrum if you don’t stick with me’ look?
This is blatantly a fix, especially with the Twitter leak tonight confirming that Aidan was in the bottom three. (Apparently by a guy named @markmeets).
X Factor bosses tried to cover that up quickly saying it was ‘uncorraborated’.
I think it’s safe to say that Katie is disliked by the public. With many groups now appearing on Facebook and so many Twitter feeds commenting on Katie’s persona, it’s highly unlikely that anybody will feel sympathetic towards her now.
Sticky Problem Number Two: Katie’s Panic Attacks
It was reported in the press a week and a half ago that Katie Waissel had been suffering from many alleged panic attacks. This included her holding up fellow contestants recording a charity single for SIX hours.
Now, I don’t know if this is entirely true, but I can understand why this has been reported.
For one thing, it’s a charity single. If you had a panic attack over bad press, it would for the very least not go on for six hours, but nevertheless I would definitely get back up, pull myself together and perform the single for the greater good.
No wonder Katie Waissel rubs people up the wrong way.
Sticky Problem Number Three: Cop-out Cheryl
Last week Cheryl ‘bottled out’ of sending one of her acts home. The choice was between Treyc and Katie, both receiving the lowest votes. Cheryl refused to vote for one act to send home saying that she would rather it go to deadlock.
Fairplay, she acts the princess and she gets her royalties with it.
But after two against one, Treyc was sent home – the producers obviously trying to overrule Cheryl and booting Treyc out of the competition.
But was it the producers?
Katie is generating so much revenue for the X Factor at this moment, what with all the press coverage she’s receiving she could buy a house!
So Cheryl, has this all been planned?
Let’s make this a fix. Wagner stays in week after week, (numerous amounts of my friends are asking who the hell is voting for him?) And Katie, although can sing perfectly well, is generating public hatred with her attitude and attention-seeking panic attacks.
Don’t get me wrong, I think Katie has an amazing voice – but she needs to sort out her attitude pronto.
What’s that saying, ‘keep your friends close and your enemies closer’?
Clearly, at the moment, her enemies outweigh her friends.
