Oops, I was quite amused by them all. I can only compare it to Viva Forever so it won't take much to be a success in my eyes - simply be a little bit better than awful. Even though I really hate X Factor sometimes, I've watched every episode for 10 years so I will be wanting to see this. I still can't believe it's going into the Palladium.

I think it needs more added to it in order to move the plot forward, as it starts in the same place it's ended.
At least it's musically *quite* interesting!

I loved the line about quavers.

It will be fascinating to see if this is a success or not. It could go either way. Certainly Simon Cowell has enough cash to ensure it gets loads of marketing and PR and prop it up if necessary. So perhaps we will never know if it's a success or not. But the Palladium is a HUGE theatre to fill 8 shows a week with a completely new show. All the other musicals there have been revivals or stage to screen adaptations with a proven box office appeal.
