The XY Factor
ITV 1, 2007
Kate Thornton hosts this special gender realignment based edition of The X factor where the judges, Simon Callow, Louis Walsh, and Sharon Osbourne, determine which of the singing stars in front of them are pre-operative, which are post-operative, and which are neither. This week the theme is the work of Dana International, with each artist having to perform one of Dana’s songs. Both Dana and Dana International are in the studio offering in turn moral condemnation and advice to the contestants.
Watch out for The MacDonald Brothers bringing tears to the eye with all kinds of everything; and Raymulus – the child raised by wolves – singing his swing version of Diva.
The final decision is for the viewing public who will follow their usual X Factor practice and systematically vote off any artist that is not white.
The XtraY Factor – an in depth study into Klinefelter Sydnrome accompanied by The Killer Question and interviews with Callow, Walsh and Osbourne, follows on ITV2 presented by Jeremy Kyle.
