LAST week it was Austin, and now Laura has left The X-Factor. No doubt Diana – absent from this week’s live show because of an attack of laryngitis – will be voted off next week, making sure that the top three talents of the whole competition will be missing from the final stages.
I had such high hopes for this season, too. Now, unless Diana wins, we’ll have an average so-so winner like Owen or Alexandra.
And how on earth did Rachel survive? She was positively flat in her murdering of “Against All Odds”. Still, no accounting for taste, I suppose. But after the last two weeks, you’ll have to go some to convince me the public knows best when it comes to The X-Factor.
And finally, a word of advice to Mariah Carey: it’s pronounced “with you”, “th” as in “thing” and “you” as in… well,, “you”. It’s not “whitchoo”; there’s no “ch” sound. Honestly…
