despite loving all things tv, i have never seen a single episode of any version of x factor.
this is also true for caitlin.
so...we knew exactly what to expect.
and it was all in italian, of course.
there were six singers remaining at the start of the night and there was a cheering section of sorts for each of them.
it was awesome to see the 'behind the scenes' stuff that you never see at home. like how just five feet from the host, live on camera, they're hauling in huge props for the next performance.
here's a short clip from the show opener, where each act was singing a portion of one song. each act then performed and the audience at home voted. then they sang again and there was more voting. the two lowest from each segment of voted had a sing off at the end and the judged had to vote to send one home.
the judges were fighting throughout the night and it was kind of amusing to try and follow exactly why they were fighting. i think we had the gist of it. by the end, i figured we understood about half of what was said. considering the pace of what was going on, i was pretty satisfied with that!
live taping of tv shows? #twothumbsup
