The real sadness was that Tesco Mary was infinitely better than Cher Lllllloyd who - as per bloody usual - dissolved into tears. Not one of the judges came out with the line "I have to base my decision on what I've just heard..." because Mary was sooooooooooo much better. Hypocrites.
Still, Rebecca and Matt are through. Cher will be binned first up. One Direction will go next. Then Matt to give Rebecca the crown.
The only real talent (Rebecca) is still there. Matt struggled through tonight. Tesco Mary was her usual clubland self. One Direction were, as ever, one-dimensional and Cher Lloyd again demonstrated that she was a one-trick pony. Two go out tomorrow.
Please, God, let four be kicked out to cut short the misery.
Dimly Lit Corner is my soapbox. I stand on this whenever I get the urge to fulminate in public about something that genuinely irritates me. All my career I have worked as a teacher. For much of it I taught Chemistry and Physics. In the last year or so I have switched to teaching Mathematics and Statistics. I welcome comments. Anything you like. If they are bad, I'll remove them. I have no problem with censorship, especially my own.
