Well, we are still in the audition process on TV of the Xfactor this year & no idea if any of these have been posted anywhere else...but here I go!

I won't mention Danyl or Stacey, I know we discussed these.

Few I have liked though..

Jamie Archer (why am I thinking of the Hair Bear Bunch?)

I found the last episode where the auditions went to Scotland and London online the other night and decided to watch. I really enjoyed quite a few of them that made it through. I'm going to try and keep up with the show if the site I found it on continues to put them up.

AH you would have seen Rikki Loney..the young lad that didn't make it through to the live shows last year (his mum was in the audience...but he hadn't told her he was auditioning again)
Hope you manage to keep up with it Teddy :D

A short "reality" show I have really been hooked on is called "The Choir -Unsung Town" (4 episodes & I watched episode 3 tonight)
The write up for the first episode was
South Oxhey in Hertfordshire got off to a tricky start. An estate the size of a town, it was built all of a piece just after the war to house Londoners displaced by bombs, but the newcomers were greeted with a certain amount of hostility from the surrounding villages. Plans for a "cockney utopia" never quite came off. These days an air of despondency hangs over the estate, and the shopping precinct is awful.
Not to worry. Here comes an unlikely saviour in the person of choirmaster Gareth Malone. I shouldn't really say unlikely, because Malone has two series of The Choir behind him, in which he convinced state-school kids to sing, even the boys. If he couldn't get South Oxhey singing, then The Choir: Unsung Town (BBC2) wouldn't have filled its first hour.
We are immediately reminded, however, how unlikely a saviour Malone looks. He's small, slight, prissy and never knowingly underdressed. He certainly stands out in the boxing club, where he has gone to enlist the help of Matty, a professional boxer and the closest thing South Oxhey has to a PR spokesman. "It's a lovely place," he says. "We got the disused golf course . . . " (If the nicest amenity you can name has the word "disused" in its title, you're in trouble.) Matty says he wouldn't move away, "even if I had my six numbers come up". All the same, he doesn't fancy Malone's chances of launching a community choir. "What you gotta remember is, no one round here does any singing."
Few mission-style programmes pin quite so much hope on the public's co-operation. If you attempted to improve school dinners you might well fail, but at least there's some footage of you trying. The struggle is the show. With community singing, there is the plain and simple danger that people just won't turn up, even for TV. And South Oxhey does not appear to be falling over itself to join the choir.
People in the windswept shopping precinct actually run from Malone and his leaflets. "There's suspicion," he says. "I'm a bit posh. I mean, let's face it I'm a bit middle class." He's also a bit pissed, after an evening trying to rope in recruits at the pub's karaoke night. His duet with Matty (Don't Go Breakin' My Heart) may have been counterproductive. He reckons he'll be disappointed if only 20 people are interested, and he's willing to bet a fiver it'll be under a hundred. He needn't have worried: more than 200 South Oxheyans turn up at the primary school, instantly making the community choir one of the biggest in Britain.
Among them, of course, are some characters worth zooming in on. Dee is black, sings in a gospel choir and has found South Oxhey to be deeply unwelcoming. Fred is a retired engineering manager whose wife died four weeks previously; his voice wobbles with grief whenever he speaks. Matty, for his part, seems to be moving to the sidelines; he's stopped coming to rehearsals because he thinks the choir is "unrepresentative" of South Oxhey.
The real star, of course, is Malone, who remains one of the most strangely beguiling presences television has ever uncovered: impish but laconic, funny and yet still resolute, reserved but shameless, camp but dignified and clearly a bloody good choirmaster. The choir loves him, kids love him, old women love him, young women love him, Matty loves him, and I am going to be him for Halloween.

The choir has "formed"...& tonight's performance..I really wish I could show you (will post as soon as available)..this was from last week though.It's amazing how music CAN pull a community together

:D

Just caught up with the last two episodes from this past weekend. Some other really good picks, but the one that stood out most in my mind is Scott. He brought me to tears. What a beautiful and brave soul. Such an inspiring story.

Adrift who is the blond guy they keep showing in the previews? I want to know what he sounded like.

I mention the show "The Choir-Unsung Town" a supposedly "grotty" housing estate brought together by choirmaster Gareth Mallone to form a (very very initially reluctant) community choir.Tonight was the final episode with the estate arranging for a musical festival on the local playing field which was a massive success :D

For me...the best performance they did was last week.
The incredibly moving & amazing Barber's Adagio for Strings (Agnus Dei).The choir was a cross section of the estate, elderly.. to kids from the local school & they all had to learn latin too.What amazing proof that community spirit can be revived grouphug

Yes that's him alright!!!

Awww, he's such cutie. What a doll! He did look very nervous, but I'm glad he got another chance from Cheryl. I hope he gets those nerves worked out otherwise he won't be around for too long. That can't happen because I wanna see more of that sweet face!

Cheryl Cole is lovely :D She can empathise with the contestants because she was one herself a few years ago.She isn't a nicey nicey judge either, does say what she thinks.Hmmmmm...can't say I'm that keen on Danni!.Louis can be like a little kid at times with his supposed insults, but my hat goes off to Simon...he cracks me up at times! One contestent..after being asked "Tell us something interesting about yourself"...announced that his brother had shot him once...but it WAS accidental.After a truly horrible audition, Simon asked if he had been singing that song just before his brother shot him lol!

One I did like...& he's from over the pond (do you know him??? LMAO)

Cheryl was in the series " Pop Idol- The Rivals".. a reality show that "found" a group of girl singers & boy singers, each having to fight for a place in the final groups.The band formed "Girls Aloud" have been one of the most successful UK girl groups & the only group from the 2 series that are still releasing songs. It was the intial series that spawned Pop Idol (which then spawned American Idol Wink ) ...errr I think!!!

Cheryl & Girl Aloud in action....
The Promise ....Trust me...you hear this a few times....lol & you can't get it out of your head!!!..reminds me of 70s type songs for some reason :D

It's only been the choir ones I couldn't open.............

Cheryl can sing! I was meaning to google Girls Aloud, but haven't had the chance, so thank you. There is a guy on another board that is all 'hot' for her! I'll have to take this one over for him! Too bad she's kind of hidden behind the mic though. It is a catchy tune!
