By a weird stroke of fate (courtesy of Your M&S), I was given tickets to this year's X Factor Live Final. I used to number among the many X Factor critics who did not enjoy the show for various reasons, and religiously avoided it.
However, when this year I heard that two of my favourite girls were to be judges, I had to reconsider, and have watched most episodes! Kelly Rowland is a long time girl crush of mine, and Tulisa is fast becoming a firm favourite. I'm a sucker for a strong woman!
Dream of Paradise
The highlight of the whole night, yes, even better than seeing Kelly Rowland, was seeing Coldplay live. Hailed as the biggest band in the world, they lived up to the hype and, quite literally, lit up the whole arena. It was a beautiful thing to be part of and now I'm a bigger Coldplay fan than ever!
