The X Factor – Does Simon Cowell Need To Fly In?

There is is all this talk about how The X Factor is tanking and the format is tired, but with the show just hanging in there in the ratings should Simon Cowell fly in to give it the boost that it needs.

Any visit or guest appearance of the charismatic Cowell on the Australian version of his show would guarantee viewers tuning in, and generate interest in the performers and judges.

His appearance needs to occur before the negative media talk sucks the life out of it,  turns the viewers off from checking it out. Also he would guarantee to a flurry of excitement from media and viewers.

If this is cannot happen ASAP, then Kyle Sandilands and Tamara Jaber need to show their gratitude to Channel Seven for reviving their TV careers and have a stoush on the show tomorrow night. Now THAT would guarantee people would tune in.

However according the Sunday Telegraph, Tamara says things will be fine between the two of them. So don’t expect her to scream into the microphone that she has not received her monthly alimony payment and that he has a small appendage. Now that would be great TV.

“that he has a small appendage.”
I’m sure Kyle would leave no expense spared in correcting this, were it the case. Size obviously matters to the Donut with Eyes as evidenced by his comments about Julia Gillard’s modest suburban home being a “rat hole”

As i posted a few months ago, it would have been in Kyle’s contract to have her as part of DWTS and now obviously X Factor. They are both professionals and don’t doubt they both know the value of people tuning in to see if something will happen.

Personally i think their marriage was one of convenience…he at the time was a noone when he took over from Ugly Phil on Today FM and she was living her 15 mins from Scandalus and was quite attractive. It was clearly always one of those relationships that they lived very separate lives and he tried when he could.

As for Simon Cowell on the show. A big YES please from me! I adore Simon and he is truly the best media marketer in the world today…should have made him a permanent judge for at least the 1st series…even he should have seen the value in this!

he does have a small appendage- his brain. unfortunately, far too often he uses his very large appendage- his mouth, before engaging his smallest one- his brain!!!!

scruffnkelsmum – LOL that is so true and so hilarious.

Bella Vita – I think Simon would think this market is too small to be a permanent judge. Christ if he had been a judge Jnr Masterchef would be struggling.

Anon – Sorry couldn’t resist.

CB – Did he really say that sounds like something he would say.

reality raver- yes, I am quite proud of that particular effort :) and yes, I know they say that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, but dammit….sometimes it is just such fun!!!!!!

and oh God, he is being such a twat…as I speak…re hayley…

Kyle is just unlikeable. And not super witty. sometimes he says what people are thinking, or would like to say, but often he is just mean for shock value, and it is getting a little old.

Kharizma were obviously kept until last tonight because the producers are fearful of those gels falling through the stage floor.

The black leggings aren’t working. It’s asking a lot from the viewer to believe them to be singing “I’ve got honey in my hips” with their appalling saddlebags bouncing around up there.

AGree BDD the latex leggings on Kharizma were not great.
