Ok, I've pretty much watched every series of the X-Factor, and really enjoyed it. However, I'm not enjoying this series as much. I know we've only just started and only just passed the audition stage, but I've been quite disappointed so far.
I know we have to go through all the silly acts first, but there is simply too much emphasis on this and not enough exposure for the good acts. I got bored! All these over dramatic X-Factor crowd shots and obviously scripted scenes coming from the judging panel just made me cringe (more than normal).
Hopefully we can get on with the show now, and actually concentrate on the good singers instead of showing 30 seconds of a good singer, compared to an hour's worth of rubbish. It's a new format granted, but I think personally it worked better when the contestants had their first audition in front of the judges and not a large audience.
