The X Factor is the most brilliant thing on television. That’s not to say that it’s well-made or credible. Who cares about the latter anyway? Idiots, that’s who. But it is the most dazzling polarising show on the box. People react to it like it’s a football team. X Factor is the Chelsea FC of TV land that clearly has too much money and ruthless with it. Of course, it’s prone to turkeys, but it’s also likely to throw out the gold.
