The circus comes to town
15 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In about July when we are bemoaning another wash out summer or a heat wave over the hill to greet us comes The X Factor and the circus rolls in to town.

From sob stories to people deluded about their own talent for the last 10 years the show has brought us everything. The judges have come and gone but the hunt for talent seems to have continued regardless despite the endless claims that it ruins the music industry or is making people a laughing stock.

Sure, not everyone who has won it has gone on to great things and the ratings seem to be on the skid but for pure Saturday night entertainment The X Factor has delivered year on year.
