Viewers unsure whether X Factor gets Motown


Well, it wouldn't be The X Factor without a Motown-themed week, would it?

Going into week two of the live shows, the "totally random" show jukebox selected the fan favourite genre for the contestants' song choices, opening up stacks of potentially winning tunes to choose from.

It may be a tried and tested format for the ITV singing contest, but that doesn't mean we were sorry to see it back again.

However, there was some question as to whether all of the song choices actually fitted the theme.

But one thing we could all agree on was that 5 After Midnight did a brilliant job, with Simon Cowell telling them: "I only have one criticism - I didn't want it to end."

Now we're just waiting to tick Abba week and UK vs US off our X Factor theme list.
