x factor 2014 news so far

So last years x factor 2014 might have finished already but there is still a few news stories about regarding the 2014 x factor, one all too familiar x factor story, is about simon cowell's syco dropping x factor winners, sam bailey has been dropped from the label since signing with then in december 2013 and dropped around the start of this year.

another story is that the x factor 2014 house is up for sale for more than £2 million, now that would be the ultimate x factor fan purchase to buy and live in the x factor house, would need to be a rich fan though to afford the cost of buying such a house.

and it is a very stylish house as well, with 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a swimming pool, and a gym and sauna, see if i can put up some pictures of this house.

the x factor 2015 uk auditions application form is now online

the x factor 2015 uk auditions application forms are now back online at the xfactor.tv website, it says that filling in the application form is simple and only takes a few minutes to do, it gives 2 main options for applying which are as either a soloist or as a group, though with either option the application process is still pretty much the same.

before applying online you will need to make sure you are eligible and meet certain guidelines, for example there are age restrictions, you need to be 16 years old or over by april the 30th 2015.

you also have the option of uploading a recent video of your performing as well, this can help with your application, but it is optional and not essential, what you will need to do though if you want to upload a video with your application form is have the video ready in advance, because it needs to be uploaded as you do the application form process.

other then that the process is quite easy, but also make sure read over all the terms and conditions as well, because you will also need to make sure you meet all the other eligibility requirements as well.

This is the youtube video of Fleur East singing Mariah Carey’s (christmas song) All I Want For Christmas Is You!, The X Factor UK Live Semi-Final.



Then onto Fleur East second song of the night with Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk.

is simon cowell leaving the x factor uk to relaunch x factor usa auditions in 2015?

if you have read some recent news stories you might wonder, if simon cowell is leaving the x factor uk to relaunch x factor usa auditions in 2015, yep, that is basically the recent rumors in a nut shell, it does sound unlikely though and simon cowell has denied these rumors outright as well.

the whole rumor seems to have started in regards to fox tv, and it goes whether true or false that fox tv america is considering relaunching the x factor usa for what would be a 4th season.

also the rumors say that simon cowell is in talks with fox tv about relaunching the x factor usa, this would be a very quick turn around if it did happen, with simon just completing one season on his return to the x factor uk and then returning back to the x factor usa after it only being cancelled for 1 year, though all this does seem unlikely.

x factor funny auditions two stages of the singing competition

so with the x factor 2014 auditions over you are kind of into stage 2 of the competition, the serious stage, whereas what could be called stage 1 was more the funny and random part of the competition the audition stages, it could be argued that the auditions section is sometimes the best part of watching the x factor to see what kind of funny auditions people will do.

who got voted out halloween night show result Jack Walton

who got voted out on the halloween themed night 1/11/2014 x factor the result?, it was Jack Walton who left on saturday night's halloween x factor, was mel b's act jack who received the least votes tonight, he did sing a leona lewis song with bleeding love, but this was not a true out and out halloween song by any stretch of the imagination, and i think that was a mistake, to get more votes he would of been better choosing a out and out halloween song.




1/11/2014 Stevi Ritchi singing the Phantom Of The Opera's Music Of The Night

1/11/2014 Stevi Ritchi singing the Phantom Of The Opera's Music Of The Night video, this is more like it to the halloween theme with this song choice, it needed to be good tonight because there is a kind of double elimination going on, with one act getting voted out tonight, and another tomorrow, so in the next post we will see who got voted out on the halloween elimination round, and then there is tomorrow as well, where another act will be voted out on sunday as well.

Stereo Kicks halloween song video Backstreet Boys song Rock Your Body

Stereo Kicks halloween song video Backstreet Boys song Rock Your Body, so another one that i am sure that it really fits tonight's saturday night theme fully, some of these song choices are not out and out halloween
songs, they are more like adaptations, should really be bonus points for those that stay true to the theme.

Only The Young singing a Monster Mash and Crocodile Rock Mash Up for halloween on the x factor 2014

Only The Young singing a Monster Mash and Crocodile Rock Mash Up for halloween on the x factor 2014, keeping well in the theme with this mash up for tonight which i think is important because some acts seemed to use there own artistic licence and sing songs that were not really of the halloween theme, they should get bonus points for sticking closer to tonight's themed show, and not trying to adapt like some of the acts have done.

week 4 Paul Akister singing Meat Loaf's Bat Out Of Hell halloween live show saturday night

x factor week 4, and Paul Akister chose to sing a Meat Loaf song, with the classic Bat Out Of Hell on the halloween live show saturday night, this is a bit of a x factor classic song as well, i think it always pops up at least once each season.


x factor halloween 1/11/2014 themed night videos Lauren Platt singing Katy Perry's song Dark Horse

x factor halloween 1/11/2014 themed night videos Lauren Platt singing Katy Perry's song Dark Horse, have to do there best tonight, because there is a flash vote which will see one of the acts leave at the end of tonight's saturday live show.


the xfactor halloween themed show videos 1/11/2014 Andrea Faustini singing Take That's song Relight My Fire

the xfactor halloween themed show videos 1/11/2014 Andrea Faustini singing Take That's song Relight My Fire, would of been good if he could of had the duet with lulu like in the original version that take that did, but i guess we cannot be too picky.

Jay James sings Gary Jules' song Mad World 1/11/2014 halloween themed x factor live show video

Jay James sings Gary Jules' song Mad World 1/11/2014 halloween themed x factor live show video, so another kind of strange song for the halloween show, some of these songs that some of the acts have chosen are not exactly totally halloween, so i guess they are using there artistic licence somewhat, think it would be better if they all had to sing out and out halloween songs really.
