I promise not to do too many off-topic posts, but how much fun has the X factor been this year? I've been twittering with like-minded souls during the shows, and it's much more fun with company (Mr London barely looks up from his iphone and grunts at me during the show.)
My favourite act this year has undoubtedly been the Irish Twins, John and Edward. Like two identical malevolent little bundles of ambition they cartwheeled onto the stage, sang over the competition and completely charmed Louis despite having no discernable singing talent by being...well, Irish.
I think this week is as far as they can go though; despite the comic genius of them singing Britney Spear's "Oops I did it again!" in red plastic suits last week, I fear that Big Band week will just be too much for them.
I have grown oddly fond of the boys over the weeks; I blame the absolutely lovely Jenine Creaney on Twitter, who is the first person I remember expressing an "Ahhhh, but they're oddly sweet" for them. If I ever need a PR, I'm hiring her.
If they do go, I hope they go with a bang, singing "Somethin' Stupid" to each other...
