I didn’t really pay attention to the tenth season of The X Factor UK, but I probably should have. First, cutie Sam Callahan showed his “sex factor” in a sizzling photo shoot for Gay Times magazine and now it’s the act that placed eighth to take their clothes off.

Boy band Kingsland Road posed for photographer Joe McCormick in underwear and out for the publication’s sex issue. The band was formed by college pals Joe ‘Connor’ Conaboy and Josh Zare. They found the remaining three members, JJ Thompson, Jay Scott and Matt Cahill, on YouTube. Little did they know months later they’d be putting their hands on each others bare butts.

Just how close are these guys? They revealed in the accompanying interview, they’d be able to recognize each other in a penis parade. YOWZA!!! One Direction has nothing on these guys. Check out a couple slightly NSFW pics from their editorial below.

Alex & Sierra Tease New Material On Instagram

Well, this is a pleasant surprise. With FOX and Simon Cowell putting The X Factor to rest and Restless Road losing a member (Colton Pack), I was worried that Alex & Sierra would fade away into the sunset as well. It appears, the lovable duo are forging ahead with their debut album. Oh happy day!!!

They teased a new track they’re working on via Instagram. Based on the brief sampler, I’m loving the direction they’re going. It’s a bit different sound from what they showed on the FOX show but still very much Alex & Sierra. Check it out below.

Simon Cowell Returns To The X Factor UK

For the first time in four years, Simon Cowell will sit on the judging panel of The X Factor UK. Both Cowell and ITV confirmed the news in a press release. With the last season garnering the lowest in years, all parties involved definitely want to reverse the downward ratings trend. Hopefully, Simon’s return can do exactly that.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be returning to The X Factor UK. It’s been three years since I last judged the competition and I’m excited to find a global superstar again. The UK X Factor has set the benchmark in finding worldwide superstars over the years – including One Direction, Leona Lewis, Cher Lloyd, Olly Murs, JLS and Little Mix. Despite all the rumours, ITV and the producers have not decided on the rest of the judging panel quite yet. You’ll just have to wait and see….” – Simon Cowell

With exception to a couple of performances I caught online, I skipped Series 10 of The X Factor UK. Based on the latest cover of Gay Times magazine, I probably should’ve paid attention. Sam Callahan is one cute little twink. From what I read he wasn’t the best singer, but that could’ve easily been remedied with the mute button ;)

Even though the Essex-born singer is 100% straight (so he claims), he’s very open to showing off his assets for his gay fans. In the issue, he even reveals a couple of man crushes which include Olly Murs and Tom Hardy. He also states he’d marry Robbie Williams. I wonder who’d top on their wedding night. Check out Sam flaunting what his momma gave him below.

The X Factor Season 3 Winner Is…

In: Donovan, Music

Is it me or did this season feel especially long? Even with lackluster ratings and questionable judging, I hope FOX renews the show for another season. My advice is to keep Kelly Rowland. She was my favorite judge this year. Even her “greatest hits” judging clip on the finale was the best. Perhaps, it’s because it featured all the cute guys she hit on during the audition process.

Speaking of the judges’ clip, departing judge Demi Lovato wasn’t impressed with her “annoying juice” segment. You can see her mouth “that’s f**ked up” to Kelly and Paulina Rubio in the bottom corner while it played out. Personally, I think she overreacted. No one believed for one second that she was actually drinking alcohol.

Since I have plans immediately after the finale, I’m going to make this recap short and sweet. Find out the winner below along with some of the performances. Sadly, there was no number as epic as Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera’s surprise duet on The Voice, but still a few standouts.

Apologies for the late publish of my recap. With only a week before the big day, I finally started my Christmas shopping tonight. Sufficed to say, I needed time to decompress and relax after braving the malls. In other words, I fell asleep ;)

Before we get to the performances, reports surfaced earlier Wednesday that Demi Lovato was leaving the judging panel after two seasons. During the red carpet preceding the show, Simon Cowell confirmed the “Skyscraper” singer was indeed exiting stage right. No wonder, the acerbic judge recently began talking about his dream judging panel which included Miley Cyrus. Keeping wishing Simon. I don’t think that’s going to happen for Season 4.

To convince America they deserve the title, each act took to the stage three times. First a brand new original song, then a duet with a superstar performer and lastly, a reprisal of their song of the series. Surprisingly, Alex & Sierra didn’t walk away with it tonight. Maybe the nerves got to them because they weren’t at the top of their game. On the flip side, Jeff Gutt gave it his all and then some. It’s going to be closer than I previously thought.

HOLY FILLER BATMAN. With no “Save Me” songs this week, Mario Lopez draaaaaaaagged out the results. No lie, it took until half way through the show before Lopez announced the first person to advance. Up until then, there was an extensive recap of the previous night’s performances and a group number. For the latter, the Final 4 teamed up to cover “Stronger” by Kelly Clarkson. Find out who was eliminated below.

Before we get to the eliminations, congratulations to Alex & Sierra for having three tracks on iTunes Top 20 list. “Little Talks” and “Gravity” peaked at #14 and #2 respectively, while last week’s epic “Say Something” cover still sits at #9. Ironically, the original version held down the top slot. Props to Jeff Gutt as well for hitting #5 with his “Hallelujah” rendition.

It’s do or die time for Season 3′s Top 4 acts. Which act will fall just short of making The X Factor finale next week? Surprisingly, it’s a tougher prediction to make. After stealing the show with their chart-topping “Say Something” performance, Carlito Olivero, Jeff Gutt, and Restless Road raised their game to take on Alex and Sierra.

Had you told me at the beginning of the season that Jeff and Carlito were still in it while Demi Lovato’s girls were all gone, I would’ve called you crazy and asked you to share whatever you were smoking.

I love how Demi acknowledged the fact she was the first (again) to have her team completely wiped out. If Simon loses one of his acts tomorrow, then all the judges will have a shot at still winning, with Demi not invited to the party once again. I’m shocked Paulina has anyone left, let alone the fact it’s Carlito. Without further ado, check out all the performances below.
