    I watched it. Much prefer the audition stage. Thought the tai chi instructer was brilliant. The blonde girl was clearly a bit mental & i imagine she will not be seen again. Did not completely buy the whole 'i'm from a tiny village & i'm really scared' act from the 16 year old girl but she did have a fairly good voice, & that last bloke was just unbelievable!

    I have a love/hate relationship with X Factor. It's so staged. The bad ones are staged. The good ones are staged. I miss Simon Cowell but I actually quite like the new judges, especially Kelly Rowland :)
    I also didn't think the 16yr old from a ''little village'' was all that. She had a lovely voice but it sounded like a cheap version of Ellie Goulding (doesn't help she sand E.G.'s version of that song too...) hmmm, maybe she will wow me next round?

    I mean, it's hard to tell. I loved Cher Lloyd's audition last year :D now (and throughout the show) I think she is a spoilt little brat too big for her boots and cannot rap! lol oh how opinions quickly change on a show like this.

    Do hope there will be some great ones. Personally, I prefer Xtra Factor - Olly Murs is a nice little presenter, and you get some of the better acts, (and some more of the worst lol).

    Summed up beautifully !

    The blond girl was so in love with herself it will not matter if no one else loves her because she will not notice .
    The rude moron who was on 2 years ago was even worse this time and I loved Gary Barlow's summing up that he had matured like a bad curry:D

    I also thought that rude bloke was either brave or stupid to call the ndubz girl that word - considering she's probably the only one out of the judges with a proper 'crew'. I would not be surprised to see him sporting a black eye in the papers under the headline 'dappy beat me senseless for calling tuisa a ****' :)

    I watched while babysitting. I love the early stages when you get the really bad ones who haven't got good friends or family to be honest with them! There was only a couple last night so I was quite dissapointed :D

    I've got high hopes for Gary Barlow as he seemed to give genuine feedback but when the other 3 put that Tai Chi woman through, it just confirmed how 'fixed' boot camp was.

    I am liking the show altogether and all 3 new judges.

    Though Luke Lucas was brilliant and such a babe.

    I didnt think that i would like either of the girls but i do. i especially liked the way that Kellie stood up for Tulisia with the girl with no talent had a pop at her.

    As a singer (not an X-factor contestant EVER I add), I have a lot of friends that have entered and got quite far. Also however, a lot of really talented, amazing vocalists that haven't got past the gate.

    Apparently, there's 5 sets of auditions infront of panels and producers before you even get to the stage. Obviously they're filtered. The judges could never see 20,000 people or however many audition every year. Because of this, there's obviously a lot of people that get through to the judging stages based on their entertainment factor/really bad audition.

    If you watch the Xtra factor you might have seen her but keep an eye out for Jo Beetlestone. She got through to boot camp last year and is through again this year. Incredible voice. Gary loved her.

    Also, there doesn't seem to be many bands at all this year. A few but not like previous years.
