It's nearly time for Burrito Josh!
That's why we're all watching Thursday (November 29) night's "The X Factor," right? Burrito Josh!
He was like Vino Alan, only instead of tattoos everywhere, he had a huge beard! And instead of entertaining the troops for a living, he MADE BURRITOS!
Oh right. Alicia Keys is gonna perform also.
Oh right. We're sending home two musical acts.
OK, fine. Let's get down to business...
I was out of the continent last week and, thus, missed both Wednesday and Thursday installments of "The X Factor."
Somehow, the roar of buzz failed to inform me that Beatrice Miller and Arin Ray were sent home until now. I'm not shocked. Beatrice was incredibly talented, but her insecurities were worsening as the glare of the spotlight grew brighter. This show wasn't helpful to her. I think we'll see her again in a few years, but it's not an insult to say some people shouldn't be forced to become stars at 13. And as for Arin, he was only an OK version of an archetype that doesn't do all that well on FOX singing competition shows.
So it goes.
We've got performances from the Top 8 coming up tonight. I have no clue how the time will be filled beyond that. Lots of Khloe Kardashian-Odom reading cue-cards?
Let's find out!
