My X-Factor Opinion

Given I'm speaking at Oxford University on Friday I thought I'd kick off the next seven days with something high-brow...

The nation is divied between Strictly & X-Factor though iPlayer and ITV Player mean that it doesn't have to be a choice. Two of these shows is too much and we're an X-factor house. Two weeks in, two acts gone (Rikki & Kandy Rain) in here's my guess at where this is all going... Might be proved totally wrong in a couple of months but it's only TV... I reckon:
  1. Jamie 
  2. Joe (probably the actual winner...)
  3. Lucie
  4. Danyl 
  5. Stacey
  6. Olly
  7. John & Edward (just for the sheer absurdity of it)
  8. Lloyd
  9. Miss Frank
  10. Rachel
And the top 6 are streets ahead of the next four which sort of makes the next four weeks a little less than interesting before the real competition starts. Interesting to see the way we begin to root for talent, for total strangers, and feel like we know them... and the way that as a nation we find ourselves draw together by such things. Something draws us in.

What do you think?

Update: Midway through Week 3's live show I'd push Danyl up the list - owned the stage.
