You know how X Factor works. First, there are the auditions, which feature mad people, a few truly jaw-dropping singers, and folk who can do un-nerving tricks with their body parts. X Factor is full of fun and laughs.
Then there's the X Factor bootcamp. That's all about hopes raised and dreams dashed, and weeping on the sofa. And finally - yes, finally - onto the live X Factor shows.
