The X Factor Recap: And That’s a Wrap

Simon Cowell, you stole two hours of our lives with the X Factor season finale.

  • S.02
  • Ep.21
  • 'Live Results Show #4'

Between Mario Lopez, Khloe Kardashian, and Britney Spears, The X Factor is the world’s leading producer of fixed, joyless smiles. 

  • S.02
  • Ep.16
  • 'Top Finalists Perform Live Show #2 '

Let me grab my X-Factorese-to-English dictionary. Oh, here we go; that means “songs sung by people who have sung songs.” 

  • S.02
  • Ep.12
  • 'Wildcard - Part 1'

Fate has never been kind to The X Factor, but in the last couple of weeks, it’s just been straight-up cruel.
