Just seen first X Factor episodes for this weekend. Have to say it’s really strong. Much better than last year. Mrs O makes HUGE difference.

Having the room auditions back makes a really big difference. And the boot camp twists looks very exciting too. #thexfactor

The Guardian has a snarky article about X Factor’s “changes”.

The X Factor: 10 glorious years

How is X Factor 2013 planning to stop things from getting stale after a decade on air? It’s hired Sharon Osbourne as a judge.

But she’s already been a judge. That’s not exactly keeping things fresh. Fine then, the contestants must now audition in a small room with no audience.

But that used to happen too! They’re refreshing X Factor by making it exactly the same as it was in 2004! Are they bringing Kate Thornton back as well? No. She’ll be spending her Saturdays in the traditional manner, angrily jabbing pins into a high-trousered voodoo doll.

At least Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh are being reunited. Perhaps we’ll see some of their old chemistry again. This is true. Osbourne and Walsh are the Statler and Waldorf of X Factor, except not quite as realistic-looking.

What else can we expect from the new series? Oh, the usual. Singers singing 12 notes when one would feasibly do. Sporadic outrage from people who don’t understand how public phone votes work. The inescapable sensation that you’re wasting vast chunks of your precious life.

So you’ll be watching on Saturday? God yes. Don’t judge me.
