  • RT @libdemvoice New post: The LDV Friday Five (ish): 4/12/09 http://ldv.org.uk/17072 <- with new ACT groups top 5 specially for @jamesgraham #
  • Olly a bit insipid; Joe vv soulful – amazing voice – but Stace's giving the knockout #xfactor performance tonight. #
  • @christopherward hmm, but what's wrong with a bit of 'amateur cabaret'? Spiced up #xfactor for me. #
  • Danyl better than I was expecting – but why does he always perform as if he's in front of a mirror rather than an audience? #xfactor #
  • based on those 2 performances, Olly's in trouble tonight – vv bad choices of song by Mr Cowell. #xfactor #
  • ahh, lovely Joe. He well deserves to win, tho I don't wish being managed by Simon Cowell's label on him. Hope he goes the Will Young route. #
  • gotta love Stacey – but think she should record an audiobook rather than an album – I'd definitely pay to hear her speak out loud. #xfactor #
  • Danyl just sent me into a coma: DULL. #xfactor #
  • are ITV2 really parading Michael Jackson's glove as some kind of trophy? Why are people cheering a dead guy's fashion hand-warmer? #xfactor #

  • Olly lucky to survive, but Danyl a too-slick, one-trick pony. Oh, and Go Joe. #xfactor #
