ROUND 1: The Auditions
In the first round, each of the contestants must audition for the 3 judges. They either go through to the next round or go home . . .
ROUND 2: Boot Camp
In the second round of the contest the judges are each assigned a category to mentor. Each judge will then get to assemble a team of people to help turn their wannabes into stars! The contestants will then be put through a boot camp and afterwards only FIVE will remain in each group!
ROUND 3: Judges' Home Visits
Next, the remaining contestants will get to live the life of luxury with their mentors! But it won't be all fun and games as the mentors must whittle their teams down to just THREE each . . .
ROUND 4: Live Shows
The nine remaining contestants/groups will now get the chance to showdown live on ITV1. Week by week more contestants will be voted off the show and we will eventually find out who Britain thinks has got The X Factor!… Expand

He is neverI'd just like to express my frustration to all of these X Factor, American Idol, etc. **** This Simon Cowell dude pisses me off. He is never hesitant to completely embarrass a contestant, in fact all of the judges are like that. It doesn't matter if someone comes on stage and completely sucks, it doesn't give them a right to insult them in front of live television. But that's not a big factor that causes me to abhor this show. Alright so maybe they just need some entertainment and they think it's funny to be rude to contestants, but HOLY **** I don't even know how to explain how stupid this show is and afhiwuuifrgoiraugv. Ok, sorry just let me get myself together. ITS ALL ****.. Anyways, this show isn't even about the singing it's all about one's image. I was shown two segments from this show where people were rejected because of the way they looked or dressed! These judges are so "judgemental", they'll have their mind made up before you even sing. One man who came on some American Idol or X Factor show had a really good voice. And although I admit he was kinda of weird because he came in with some pink fluff and a plastic glittery microphone, he was still darn good! Simon rejected him of course, YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY? He said something like "I mean just look at the way you dress look at what you're wearing" ------ he rejected him because of what he was wearing (in that case miley cyrus shouldn't be famous... just kidding she shouldn't be famous because of her ****ty music not her clothes) Another girl who was also pretty good got rejected because Simon didn't approve of her hair--COME ON!!! (oh and also because she didn't sing a pop song). In addition, the judges on these types of shows are always looking for a specific voice. They know exactly what they want. They want the same "beautiful" pop music voice. Uhh news flash... there are other genres and types of voices which means that just because someone doesn't have that Britney or Beyonce whatever voice doesn't mean that it's not good. All of this being said, there is honestly no point of these shows and people take it too seriously. WHY WOULD YOU CRY OVER A FEW PEOPLE SAYING THEY DIDN'T LIKE YOUR VOICE? These judges aren't god and just because they said no doesn't mean you are bad at singing or that your whole life is over because Simon Cowell doesn't like your voice. Why would you care what that sad old man has to say. He probably has the saddest life ever because he's so grumpy all the time and enjoys pissing on others. In fact, we should all be crying for the all the arrogant **** that we have in this world like Simon. Yeah so basically this show is a piece of ****… Expand

Isn't it awfully nice to have a penis?
Isn't it frightfully good to have a dong?
It's swell to have a stiffy.
It's divine to own a dick,
From the tiniest little tadger
To the world's biggest prick.
So, three cheers for your Willy or John Thomas.
Hooray for your one-eyed trouser snake,
Your piece of pork, your wife's best friend,
Your Percy, or your cock.
You can wrap it up in ribbons.
You can slip it in your sock,
But don't take it out in public,
Or they will stick you in the dock,
And you won't come back.
OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH THANKYOUVERYMUCH.… Expand
