The “X” Factor USA – Top 17 Preview

So now “The Judges Home” shows are over and the top 16, well actually 17 after the drama of Simon cutting one of the best of his group and then getting her back on the show, we should be ready for the “live shows”.  Even though the previous week was initially billed as “Judges Mentor” Week there was not much mentoring going on as far as we could see.  There were some pretty great performances however and now the judges can get down to mentoring their groups.

We must say also that we were surprised as to how well Nicole did with her group.  We thought Paula and Nicole were the weaker of the judges and now we take that back in Nicole’s instance.  She was very impressive.  No surprises from Paula.

So next week we start the Top 17 performances and it looks like there is some really great talent this first season.

Now we are looking forward to see how the judge’s mentor each of the contestants in their groups.  We think Simon has the edge but we hope to get surprised by the others.

We have nothing else to report at this time except that every time we hear a contestant say “Winning this show will change my life” we just think “DUH!”.  Their life has already changed just getting this far and if they are referring to the five million multiply the “DUH” by a zillion.  If the winning prize was a buck and a quarter their life would be changing. That is a given. (Okay so we stating the obvious so please do give us a “DUH“)

Have a great weekend and we hope to see all of you out there in cyberland next week.
