Anyone watch the premier last night?
I just got done watching it, I kind of loved it and love love love Cheryl as the new judge. I think she's still a tad awkward but from the previews it looks like she gets into it rather quickly.
I loved Rachel, I hope she wins it, but from what Simon said in the helicopter it seems like she'll get a recording contract regardless of where she places so that's good.
LOVED the 4-piece boy band as well - they were great. I didn't understand that one girl Alexandra or whatever who's sob story was something about suicides in her home town? How lame is that? She was so mediocre, everything about her. The one girl who sang 'I'm Your Lady' was gorgeous and her voice was pretty good.
The end was heart-breaking. I watched Popstars: The Rivals and remember Nikk from back then and it's so weird seeing how different him and Cheryl's lives have become since the show. When they played the video of Cheryl on the Tangled Up tour in front of thousands of people and then cut to Nikk performing infront of a room of old people it was crushing. Loved how angry Cheryl got at the situation and how she told the judges they were awful.
