serie: the x factor

Video: Zoe Alexander’s audition - Pink’s So What - The X Factor UK 2012

I want Deborah to go on The X Factor, get told she’s average at best by the judges, and then throw the biggest hissy fit on stage, maybe even get a little destructive back stage, and it all goes viral. I imagine watching that video would be certain students’ favorite pass-time.


Everywhere Styles goes, a screaming pack of One Direction fans follows. But, now that the shaggy-haired singer is set to make his feature debut in Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated World War II film “Dunkirk,” his fans may well start screaming for a different reason. With no screen track record save for music videos, TV series like the U.K.’s “X Factor,” and a cameo in “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie,” the question remains: Can Harry Styles act? Certainly that looks like a good bet, and he’ll be surrounded with a host of A-plus British talent including Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, and Kenneth Branagh. Styles might well surprise fans and critics in “Dunkirk,” and, perhaps, launch a burgeoning film career.Will Thorne (x)
