OH and I thought we'd tuned into X Factor last night when we saw the opening dance group All modern contemporary dance
I simply cannot understand why the show features a dance couple when a singer is on. Very distracting.

Then there's those of us who don't understand why the show features a singer when a dance couple is on. (Good performance from Janette and Aljaz by the way).
For a kick off, these singers have to pay the BBC to appear on Strictly. That's why we get some totally unsuitable performers.
The show has little resemblance to the original format. This is due to the changes made by the Executive Producer, Louise Rainbow, who I call "The Rainbow Worrier," as she seems more concerned about ratings than presenting a "proper" ballroom dance show.
She's been chasing the X-Factor viewers for years now and has been successful in doing that, by turning it into a "Dog and Pony Show."
The introduction of some of the more contemporary music, examples of that were apparent on Saturday night do nothing for me and all the flashing nights and increased screaming by the dumb audience who are told to do it is distracting. The judges have got increasingly unnecessary camp attempting to draw attention to themselves.
For me it's gone from a "must watch," programme to a "must record," then watch later and fast-forward through the annoying bits.
