Cold Weather and X-Factor Finals

Hi Everyone,

The mind is a powerful thing, in the Summer it is difficult to imagine it ever been cold and as I huddle over the fan heater I wonder what it was like to be warm. I may also be lamenting the loss of the moustache as a heating aid.

I genuinely enjoy the snow so I’m excited for some snaction (snow action) not to be confused with snacktion (snack action).

The BBC Song of 2012 long list is out which proves some interesting reading, I need to have a few more days with some of the acts before I can decide who my favourite is but the Superbad track from Flux Pavilion and Doctor P is immense.

As I’ve covered X-Factor once or twice I should probably reference the final which is this week. Prepare yourself for the hype machine and the fact that it is totally irrelevant who wins as they will all be pushed to see where money can be made.

The criteria of what makes someone successful is by no means scientific so no need to analyse at any depth

Most Successful (position)
Steve Brookstein
G4 (Runners-up). They were on the radio for a bit with some dodgy covers
Shayne Ward
Andy Abraham (Runner-up). He represented England in the Eurovision song contest (and came last).
Leona Lewis
Leona Lewis (Winner). A couple of really successful albums and making it in the US.
Leon Jackson
Alexandra Burke
JLS (Runner-up). Now onto their third album.
Joe McElderry
Olly Murs (Runner-up). Number One album in the charts this week. Stacey Solomon (3rd) and Jedward (6th). Both presenting in some capacity.
Matt Cardle
One Direction (3rd). Mass hysteria tends to follow them around.
Marcus Collins*
Misha B (4th)*


Whatever happens expect a jump in sales from all guests that appear and some over the top indoor fireworks.

Time to defrost my feet!
