Something We Really Need to Discuss

I have something very important I need to talk to you about.

The X Factor.

As for me and my house, we love.

I love that it is open to groups.  It is an inspired idea to have an audience for auditions.  So much can be read from their reaction.  And I really love that it is open to old people.  Who are, you know, over 30.

So far my favorites are Young Homie. ( And you’ll have to excuse me for calling them by their songs because I don’t remember any of their names yet.)  Greasy Burrito guy that sang ‘At Last’.  Didn’t see that one coming.  The girl Justin Beiber fanatic who re-styled Baby to the piano.  Even though I am not a fan of Justin, I LOVED her version.  Very risky.  (Sydney, who is the only 9 year old girl on the planet who doesn’t like JB, said, “I wish she would change all of his songs.”) Hi five to that.

And my favorite.  My favorite…


I told the boys someone had finally written a song they could sing about me.  And they gagged and said things like, “Whatever” and “Your mom has to be awesome if you want to sing that song”.    But seriously, that kid was amazing.  I would love a son forever who would write about me, “She looks so young, you thought I was her brother.”  Classic.

I’m also loving the judges.  Nicole S. (what is her last name anyway?) is surprisingly witty and classier than I expected.   And L.A. Reid?  I am determined to master his facial expressions when he is really in to it.  He’s the truth.

Are y’all liking the show?  Better or worse than American Idol?   Who are your faves so far?
