We were an audience that had sat through endless ballads and grown women in bridesmaid dresses and The Wanted doing their Westlife impression, so when Dermot said the words ‘Lady Gaga
’ on this weekend’s X Factor results show
, we stopped whining on Twitter for a few minutes and paid attention.
Except...was that Lady Gaga, one of the greatest pop stars of our age, or was it someone crawling around the stage in their M&S nude bra and pants? Pants that don’t say “pop star” so much as they say “time to put a wash on.”
