X Factor: What Joe McElderry Fears, Lucie Jones Naked And A Fight

by | 7th, December 2009

x-factor-hugX FACTOR: Danyl Johnson is departed. The greatest microphone juggler in the business is no more. Olly Murs, the man with the name that’s as contagious as his itchy dancing, Lucie Jones naked, dull Joe McElderry and Carry On X Factor Stacey Solomon go on. The news round-up:

The Sun (front page): “XSTATIC – Olly, Stacey and Joe in final as Danyl dumped”

Daily Star (front page): “X FACTOR STARS’ FIGHT NIGHT – Signers at war as cocky Danyl is booted”

War! Is there much blood? The Star:

Nerves were really playing havoc with them all. There was a lot of bickering

The War of Bickering, eh. It’s brutal stuff. Want to hear what “cocky” Danyl says?

“I might have gone out in the semi-final but I’ve gone out to some of the best people I’ve ever met. I’m looking forward to spending time with my friends and family and hopefully I’ll get a couple of gigs if anyone wants to come along.”

The media narrative is that Danyl is cocky, because Cheryl Cole said so. But he isn’t. He’s just confident. Do you want a performer who lacks confidence? What news of the rest? What news of Joe McElderry, the safe option and now a shoo-in to win:

X FACTOR favourite Joe McElderry stormed into the final last night but fears he might lose because viewers think he can’t DANCE. While the other two finalists have shown off their moves, 18-year-old Joe has concentrated on his voice.

Joezzzzzzzzzzzzzz voice…. That’s Joe. What of his so-called mentor, Simon Cowell’s winner-in-chief Cheryl Cole:

Daily Mirror (front page): “CUT! Secrets of Cheryl’s new hair”

The secret is… Cheryl’s hair is shorter than it was when it was longer. Her hair looks like it’s been cut, possibly with something sharp scissors or her tongue.

In Local News news, the singers are always local:

South Shields Gazette – “SOUTH Shields teenager Joe McElderry is the hot favourite to win the X Factor after storming into next week’s final… Danyl Johnson, a 27-year-old teacher from Kent, became the latest contestant to be voted off the X Factor last night, missing a place in the final.”

Get Reading: Arborfield teacher Danyl Johnson is out of the X Factor final.

As for life after the X Factor, well, Lucie Jones has news:

“I don’t think I could ever do anything naked but I’d love to do something like FHM, it would be great to look sexy! Imagine me on the front of a magazine!”

More X Factor news all week until the final, at which point the music dies…
