I concede. A month or so in now, someone was gonna have to make this eventually. I know I'm not the only poor soul out there who still watches these shows.

Anyways, first live performances were tonight. My four favorites were...

  • IMO, Emblem 3 was pretty solid. I think they have a shot at making it really far.

  • Lyric 145 is very entertaining, hopefully they stick around too.

  • Carly Rose just destroys it every time, incredibly consistent.

  • And then the newly named 5th Harmony is very solid too. That first girl that went tonight (Camilla?) is incredible.

Arin Ray and Cece Frey are probably in trouble tomorrow.

Anyone else wanna weigh in? (I'm looking at you, DPantherman.)

Vito as in Vino? Yeah, he's got a really strong voice too. Song choices haven't been great though. Tonight was pretty good.

Honestly, I feel like X-Factor is too gimmicky and horribly produced.

Also, why is Khloe Kardishian hosting? She really isn't selling excitement and you can tell she is reading.

The singers really arn't that great.

I say in the next few years, X Factor will be a failure.

I think what sets X Factor apart from, say, American Idol and The Voice is that they are looking for the full package instead of just big voices.

For instance, someone like Emblem 3 could be a legitimate mainstream radio success. Or Carly Rose Sonenclare, who is incredibly talented, could be selling tons of records and having fair radio success too. And even that girl band, looking at the success that Simon had with the UK's One Direction.

There are chances, they just have to play it right. LA Reid and Simon are executives of huge record companies. They can make it happen if they find the right people.

I do agree that it's really gimmicky and Khloe Kardash sucks. If they could pull their sh*t together, it could be a real success.

    • What separates this mock draft is that The Observer asked other team's newspaper insiders for their opinion. 1. Cleveland Browns The pick: Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett (Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland Plain Dealer) Browns’ needs: Edge rusher, quarterback, safety. Insider knowledge: Cabot calls Garrett the best player who can make an immediate impact, “whereas the quarterbacks are going to take some time.” The Browns will continue to scout Mitch Trubisky, Deshaun Watson and DeShone Kizer, although Cabot believes Cleveland will be able to get one of those QBs when the Browns pick again at No. 12. People’s choice: Given Cleveland’s dark quarterback history, Browns fans seem fine the idea of taking Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick. 2. San Francisco 49ers The pick: Stanford DE Solomon Thomas (Eric Branch, San Francisco Chronicle) 49ers’ needs: Quarterback, wide receiver, edge rusher. Insider knowledge: As much as first-year coach Kyle Shanahan would like to get rolling with a franchise QB, Branch expects Shanahan to use Brian Hoyer as a place-holder until 2018, when the Niners can go after Kirk Cousins or choose from a deeper QB group. In the meantime, Branch sees new GM John Lynch going defense in his first draft by taking an elite pass-rusher from the Bay area. People’s choice: Some Niners’ fans seem infatuated with the prospect of taking a skilled-position player such as Fournette or Clemson WR Mike Williams.
