I'm underwhelmed. Were you underwhelmed?
The final guys' night of the semi-finals featured only one really terrible performance -- by a person who, unfortunately, won't be going home -- but also lacked a single performance suggesting any of these eight men deserves to be in the same competition as most of the remaining women. There hasn't been anything close to "the 'WOW' factor" that Simon keeps talking about, as if each guy is just trying to play it safe and hope to impress people after squeaking into the final 12. The producers' insistence on an artificial gender split for the finalists isn't looking so good this season.
