X Factor uproar!
Even Philip Schofield has been giving his verdict on last weekend’s X Factor and more specifically Nicolo Festa’s performance and sartorial choices. Speaking on This Morning, Philip said,
“Well I think it was a mistake to put glasses on him. If anyone ever comes here as a guest and has sunglasses on, we try very politely to ask them to take them off, because you don’t get to see their eyes. There is a real barrier there.”
As much as we love the look, there’s a very good point there. Why put up barriers to the audience when you need them to vote you through the show? Strange choice in hindsight and probably not one that any more of the contestants will be trying anytime soon.
What do you think?

While us busy bees at the WantSunglasses offices reserve judgement on Nicolo Festa’s X Factor 2010 one and only performance over the weekend, we can unequivocally say that we love Nicolo’s choice of Red Ray-Ban Wayfarers that he was sporting during his rendition of Lady Gaga’s ‘Just Dance’.
Italian born Nicolo Festa was the first X Factor contestant to be ejected from the live finals after polling the lowest number of public votes. FYD were also harshly booted off the opening live show as the judges chose to save the wacky Katie Waissel thanks to her rendition of the classic tune ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ by The Beatles. Just as Nicolo’s sartorial choices were a hot topic in the WantSunglasses offices this morning, Katie’s choice of outfit on Sunday’s show found much more favour than her futuristic, Gaga-esque look we saw on Saturday’s show. What a difference a night can make.
Who’s your favourite contestant? A quick straw poll in the office suggests that Aiden Grimshaw, Matt Cardle and Treyc Cohen are our ones to watch.
