I called my grandparents this afternoon and got into a conversation with my gran about the X-factor and made a shocking discovery.
My granny, a woman in her 70s with a very dodgy hip is a serious Chico fan.
I just don't know what to say...but hee hee.
For the Americans and people from other countries on my blog (or those who consider themselves too cultured to watch the X-factor)...the X factor is the UK equivalent of American Idol. You know the set up, two judges gush and coo over the participants, Simon Cowell sneers mockingly, 'Really, it was like a very bad karaoke performance. I don't know why you are in this competition, ' and the audience boo.
Chico used to be a stripper, in the run up to the show he performed in Ozzy Osbourne's house and ran into the pool with a microphone. Even the prince of darkness himself said he was mad. He has a certain cheesey charm about him. Simon described last week's performance as, 'Horrifically brilliant.'
He is fun and I enjoy him being on the show - but my gran, a fan?!?!
