There are so many mysteries this show has yet to solve for us–Is Louis Tomlinson studying to be a judge? What did Stevi see in Chloe? Why can’t I tell all of Stereo Kicks apart yet? When will Andrea’s performance be as precious as his personality? Why does nothing move me anymore?
Well, maybe they don’t have to answer that last question for me. I have been really sick this week–strep, I think–so honestly, I did not pay much attention to this week’s episode. I apologize to my queen Cheryl Fernandez-Versini. The contestants going home–Jack Walton and Lola Saunders–could not compare to Simon’s mighty overs or the groups in performance and song choice for the past several weeks. I will not miss them at all.
Lola caused her own demise
Best field trip
Andrea went to an adorable Italian delicatessen, which you can visit when you go to London.
Best gossip confrontation
Stevi talked about his relationship with Chloe a lot. He even admitted to kissing her!
But then he and Fleur were shocked to hear that Chloe and her boyfriend were back together.
I like that Jay James
He said being in the X Factor house was like being in a “youth club.”
Most likely to give me nightmares
Creepy contacts, as seen on Lauren Platt
and Paul Akister.
I would never touch my eye just for a Halloween costume. I am a dedicated glasses wearer.
Mel B said she liked what Jay James was wearing. I did not like it as either a modern outfit or as a costume. It did not know what it wanted to be.
Creepy contacts aside, Lauren Platt looked AHMAHZE.
Cutest flashback costumes
Awwwww, Stereo Kicks!
Best costume, judge edition
Best costume, contestant edition
While my girl Fleur East did a formidable “Thriller,” Only the Young really charmed me with “Monster Mash” (with a little “Crocodile Rock” thrown in). This is why I love the groups category–so much fun and creativity here!
I also loved Paul Akister’s “Bat Out of Hell.”
