The X Factor Already Has Its First Hit Single

Luke O’Dell the 18 year old from Perth has given The X Factor its first hit single this year, with news his song Introvert Extrovert  has hit number 51 on the itunes charts. Hopefully that will help console him because he was not put through to boot camp by the judges.

For the record I thought they should have.

Even if the person in question can’t sing, it is pretty harsh for the judges to splutter “You’ve seriously been singing for TEN YEARS?”. He wasn’t great, but he also wasn’t the worst. Often the judges will tell the contestants that singing may not be their forte, but perhaps songwriting is?

Also, Luke O’Dell was on the Morning Show and seemed to have the support of Larry and Kylie until he had to watch Larry Emdur paying tribute to his song:

He wasn’t the worst, I agree and truly thought he was going to get through. Ain’t showbiz cruel? He seemed to be squeezing too many styles into his initial audition.

His single hit is a shocker,however.

That sounds like a Captain Beefheart lyric to me ,Boner.

Bdd, unfortunately not Beefheart.
Instead the ironically named Divine -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TXoGjYO7TY – and I don’t mean Divine Brown.

Honestly, i thought my ears were going to bleed, so i don’t think Mel B’s comment was that harsh. After he did his little moves and his little walk, well…i had nightmares that night.
