Intro for September 21, 2012
I still can’t believe the music they’re using as BACKGROUND on X-Factor: Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, P!nk, all original tracks... as BACKGROUND! That’s a lot of money. And, again, as noted yesterday, it adds to the production value. Duana and I were texting each other back and forth during the show about this last night and she highlighted how they’re cutting each episode too; the soundtrack and the editing and the direction all amount to great storytelling which, I dunno, to me is so much more compelling than a swivelling chair gimmick. Yes, of course, Cowell is throwing cash at this thing. But the people he’s working with, they know how to spend it.
Emmys on Sunday! There will be no liveblog but Duana and I will both be tweeting and we’ll have a full wrap-up to follow on Monday. It’ll be a long, long, LONG blog that morning -- come early to get caught up!
If you’re in Portland, Oregon you’ll find me by the food trucks, gorging. Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
