Listen, people: All I want is a regular American singing competition show with a manageable number of singers where one person is eliminated per week. That’s it. I know it requires a lot of work to get there, but I didn’t know how much work it would feel like. Right now, my world is X Factor and X Factor is my world. There was a moment in tonight’s episode when I honestly said to myself, “What about the old Jewish gangster played by Albert Brooks? What did he perform in the group round?” All is full of X Factor.
Next week, we go from 32 to 16! Then it’s the live shows maybe! But for now, it’s over. It’s over. There’s no pain.
