Dominic's Blog - Week 5

     

Well this week on the show we’ve seen the star wattage lifted a peg or two, with Justin Bieber, Joe Jonas, Marc Anthony and Will.I.Am lending their names and talent to the show. Overall I think they all offered a really unique voice to the conversation. Not sure about Bieber's tight leather pants but other than that, it was great to get other successful artists point of view on who they thought had star potential.

Simon might have to be a careful moving forward though. He just announced that Beyonce will perform on the grand finale, making it, in my eyes, the show with the most star power on television. Cowell was very vocal at the start of the season, that it was going to be all about the performers not the judges or guests but we have had some pretty big names join the fray since it all kicked off just 2 months ago.

I think everyone here in LA just cant wait to get to the LIVE shows, not only as the focus will hopefully shift to the talent but to see who will rise to the challenge and who will fall to the perils of live TV. Who goes which way will be fun to watch.

Also, it's now official regarding the hosts, Simon revealed that Khloe and Mario will be running the show and in typical Cowell fashion the announcement was surrounded by controversy. Supposedly, both hosts are at each other’s throats already. I very much doubt this is true but its quite funny. Apparently Mario thinks Khloe is an airhead and she thinks he’s a "muscle-bound stuffed shirt" said the insider. Got to love those insiders!

They are each getting $1 million to host the show - not bad for a day at the office! We'll have to wait till Nov 1st to see if we can pick up any real drama between the duo. Just another reason to tune in, if you needed one!

No Real Surprises Here

The first act to be sent home saw the whole crowd booing and seemingly quite surprised, but at this stage of the game, seriously is anything really that much of a shocker?

They're Dropping Like Flies

There was a festive theme last week, as most Americans were celebrating Thanksgiving but there was nothing to celebrate for two acts, as there time on the show came to an end.

A Shock Double Elimination

It's been an eventful few weeks on the X Factor USA, with Simon Cowell mixing things up with a dizzying amount of changes to his beloved show and then of course the rather embarrassing voting graphics errors this time last week. Could there be anymore drama in store?

That's Embarrasing!

For the first time in X Factor history thanks to a graphics error (sure someone got in trouble for this one), the wrong numbers were put up after each contestant, so none of the votes from America were counted and the pressure lifted as all the acts had a do-over episode, the following night.

Does Cece deserve to be there based on her performances? I don’t think so but as Demi's last chance in the competition, she sure believes in her.

Divas

It was Taylor Swifts turn to wow the crowds last week on the show but it was Cowell’s biggest creation, One Direction that has been the real highlight I think so far this season.
