Come back, Si­mon!

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY AUGUST 23 -

THE re­turn of The X Fac­tor was a bit dis­ap­point­ing to be hon­est.

I don’t like Ni­cole Scherzinger ( right) –I think she’s in­sin­cere and doesn’t give away any real emo­tion.

I’m not crit­i­cis­ing her as a mu­sic ex­pert – she has worked hard to get where she is and I know she has a lot of knowl­edge about the in­dus­try. But I don’t think she’s got the right per­son­al­ity.

So I’m call­ing for Si­mon Cow­ell to come back and step into her shoes to save the day!

Mel B was aw­ful as a guest judge. She was try­ing to be Si­mon Cow­ell by putting peo­ple down but it just came across as nasty.

I thought she spoilt it all. When she was rude to that poor 82-year-old man who had sung a re­ally sweet song I was an­gry.

If some­one spoke to my dad like that I’d have some­thing to say about it.

And I didn’t agree with them show­ing Pink im­per­son­ator Zoe Alexan­der be­ing vi­o­lent and swear­ing ei­ther.

X Fac­tor is a fam­ily show and shouldn’t be show­ing that kind of thing when kids are watch­ing.

I felt a bit sorry for her be­cause it looked as though she had been set up by the pro­duc­ers – but she came across as a spoilt lit­tle brat.

Luck­ily 16-year-old Ella Hen­der­son saved the show. When she sang a song she had writ­ten her­self I cried my eyes out.

I thought she was amaz­ing. She re­minded me of Adele and I couldn’t be­lieve how good she was. And she seemed like a lovely kid – an ex­am­ple of a some­one who has been brought up prop­erly.

She is my tip for the new se­ries so far. I think she will do re­ally well and I pre­dict big things for her.
