Anyone who has the slightest interest in the X Factor (not me!) will have noticed that there has been a big change in the proceedings for the new series. There is a new lineup of judges! Now, in order to give you lovely people a link it to vending somehow, I had to think hard.
Before you groan and get on with your day, bear with me here. Every Saturday evening for the foreseeable they will be on our TV screens providing their thoughts and entertainment and sipping on a mug of…something. What that ‘something’ is, though, could make for some pretty interesting predictions!
New judges for us to judge.
Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh had been part of the X-Factor panel for so long that we felt like they were part of the family. Now, though, Robbie Williams, his wife Ayda Field and Louis Tomlinson will be sitting alongside the wolf of the pack that is Simon Cowell. All of a sudden, we have to create new thoughts and opinions on these fresh additions. I’ve always seen Simon Cowell as an ‘earl grey’ sort of guy, what with his calming attitude that instantly emphasises the father figure he has not long became. The other three, however, are somewhat wilder. And I reckon it’ll show. So, what about these?
Drinks that have the X Factor! Do you agree?
Louis – is a new kid on the block so how about one of the latest trends – a speciality water infused with spices of his choice?
Robbie – is known as much for watching his weight these days as his chart-topping hey-day so a skinny latte could get a ‘yes’ from me?
Ayda is an unknown quantity – so something unpredictable could be in order. A refreshing fruity tea in an exotic flavour maybe?
On a side (and pretty hilarious!) note, the only time I have really been interested in the X-Factor is the auditions. It is here, I feel, that the entertainment really shines through. I’m not sure whether it’s the same format this year so you’ll have to help me out, but I’ll always remember the time when Sharon Osbourne chucked a glass of water over Simon Cowell in the first series’ auditions. Sure, I didn’t watch it at the time, but it’s always doing the rounds on YouTube and social media for our pleasure.
