Surely they can't have that much longer left in the competition? Every week I hope they manage to make it through a couple more performances because the fact remains, everyone else on The X Factor is so, so dull there'd be little point in watching if Jedward weren't about to come on. There was a possibility that they might get pipped in the car crash stakes in "movie week" by Lloyd, who was rumoured to be doing "Footloose" - yes, dammit, I want the boy who can't sing or dance to sing and dance! Unfortunately he did "Stand By Me" instead so rather than be entertainingly shit he was just shit.
Not to worry, Jedward did "Ghostbusters." So as well as the now-traditional treats of being out of tune despite the whole song being basically spoken word, the constant forgetting they're on camera and the dancing that looks like an epileptic fit, this week's special extras include: Backpacks! Talky bits! ("John, save me!" "Ah stop being a baby!" "Aaaargh!" "Scary!") The car! The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man! Name badges! Floating ghost women! And a really awkward bit of waiting for the right moment to knock over the long-armed zombies. And then La Cowell decides that since slagging them off every week hasn't got rid of them, he'll try the reverse psychology approach and try praising them to see if that'll shift them.
