Fleur's Uptown Funk performance was the moment X Factor became relevant again

8 December 2014 4:09 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

In the biggest talent show moment since Susan Boyle’s I Dreamed a Dream, Fleur East trounced the competition with her version of Uptown Funk and woke everyone – and the format – up

Something unexpected happened on Saturday night. Something huge and magnificent that came out of nowhere and blasted a hole straight through our flimsy walls of perception. Something so sudden and enormous and completely unprecedented that it doesn’t seem like hyperbole to suggest that life itself may never be the same again.

That’s right: The X Factor wasn’t terrible.

Susan Boyle Confesses Asperger's Syndrome Makes Her Feel Like 'King Kong's Mother'

15 November 2014 11:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

On stage she feels "safe," but it's life out of the spotlight that's difficult for Susan Boyle. Boyle's been described as eccentric all her life, but last year she was finally able to put a more precise label on the reasons for her volatile behavior: Asperger's. The singer was diagnosed with a mild form of autism in December 2013, but her mood swings - including unpredictable tantrums preceded by a "hooded look" like clouds descending over her face - are still very much a work in progress. The unlikely star, whose 2009 audition for Britain's Got Talent brought her international fame, admits that because of her condition, »

10 Wonderful Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do On Spotify

11 November 2014 11:45 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Spotify

The day Spotify entered this world was the day we saw our friends for who they really were. Suddenly, musical libraries once kept within personal storage were now on public playlists for the world to see… and then there was Facebook. Ah yes – like everything, the Zuckerberg machine was eager to get it’s finger in this pie; and to the shock of us all, our friends could see every single track we listened to announced on social media.

We now know that there’s a “private session” setting on Spotify, but unfortunately for some it’s too late: the world and their aunt are already aware that your top-played tracks are by Nickelback and Susan Boyle. Of course, some of us have inexplicably excellent musical taste, and Spotify is just a source to show that off. Whatever your ears find pleasing, there’s plenty of fun apps, tricks, »

11 Things That Only Amateur Footballers Will Understand

5 November 2014 5:32 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

shutterstock.com

Is there really anything more glorious than falling out of bed — perhaps not even your own bed —on a Saturday or Sunday morning, only to go and voluntarily chase a spherical bag of air around an unkempt meadow?

Anyone who has ever played football at a competitive level (and we do use the phrase lightly), will appreciate the full spectrum of joy, exasperation and humiliation that amateur 11-a-side brings with it. Not uncommon are 10-0 scorelines, ten-man brawls and referees who are actually just the opposition’s reserve keeper, a reserve keeper who is actually just one of ‘the dads’.

This footballing version of Inception may appear shambolic to the uneducated eye, but the ordered chaos which envelopes grassroots football is actually a facet integral to its survival. When match officials don’t turn up, for example, you’ll see the absolute best of our utopian little society. »
