The X Factor
At around this time last night, I was watching the X Factor Australia Grand Final!! After three weeks of following it (I know, not that long) and a whole season of my dad being completely obsessed, the final three went head-to-head with performances for two whole hours, until FINALLY a winner was announced.
The three voted into the grand finals were Dean, Marlisa and Brothers 3.
Now let's back track a little...
I really didn't want Brothers 3 in the final. I mean, they could hardly hold a candle to the unique artistic Dean, and the amazing vocals of Marlisa and Reigan. But no. Reigan got kicked out, and somehow Brothers 3 made it through. I'm so glad they didn't make the final 2 though.
So Dean is a previously homeless guy, who is an AMAZING artist that can make every song his own. He's labelled as a mysterious rocker and seems to always forget to wear a shirt. He does wear a jacket though.
And Marlisa's a Filipino 15 year old school girl, around my age!! She's very shy and says that before the X Factor, no one in her school knew her name. Well, now they do ;) She's actually pretty relatable, seeing as she goes to a private school in Australia, just like me, and would have therefore dealt with the same environment.
Now, I'm not going to bore you with anymore about the contestants, seeing as most of you probably don't watch the X Factor Australia, so I'm just going to say it. MARLISA WON!! This caused lots of screaming, she may be too young, instagram posts, snap chats, the second place person is the one that ends up going places anyway... And yeah..
So let's talk about Taylor Swift. She performed, and sang Shake It Off just as amazingly live. I don't really feel like talking about that though, since we all already know she's amazing. I wanna know if you guys have heard her new songs, Out of the Woods and Welcome to New York. In my opinion, I'm crazy in love with Out of the Woods. It's definitely about Harry Styles ;). Welcome to New York is pretty okay too. It sounds autotuned though, which is okay for artistic effect. I could imagine it in the Carrie Diaries or something.
Oh, and also to do with the X Factor, is my newly discovered Twitter! I know. Twitter's been around for a while, but I only just found out what it actually was. You see, on the X Factor they put some of the tweets up on the screen, and that got me thinking about Twitter. Now, being the weirdo I am, I decided to try to get a tweet on that screen. I didn't get my tweet on TV, but The X Factor did retweet one of my tweets, which was pretty cool. So yeah, I've decided to use my Twitter account, which is also useful since I am now in possession of my dad's old iPhone (yes I have an iPhone!!).
Come follow me! @lyfoflittleme
Now, to end this post that has gone slightly off track...
Yesterday morning Taylor Swift was on Sunrise and here's something she said:
"Being an over-thinker and over-analyser can make you a hard worker, but don't let that stop you from taking chances."
