What do Louis Walsh, Danni Minogue, Cheryl Tweedy and Simon Cowell all have in common? Not one of them knows a single thing about rock music. I have to admit, for me, X Factor is a little like a horror movie… You know it is terrifying to watch, but you cannot help peeking through your fingers not to miss any of it. Is there anything more painful to watch than a Brazilian Peter Stringfellow murdering Radiohead, a middle-aged woman jiggling her arse in trackies to The Pretenders and 5 teenage boys singing about a summer that not even their parents are old enough to remember?
Tonight, 14 classic, respectable rock songs were slaughtered live to the nation and somebody should be fucking stung up for it!
