Awesome / The X Factor

  • After The Risk's shocking elimination during week 5 of the 2011 live shows, Little Mix became the first girl group of the British version to last longer than any boyband from their season and only the second (the first being Hope) to last longer than a month period. They took a further step by becoming the first group, let alone a girl group, to win the competition.
  • In the American version, a contestant getting eliminated said that he'd worked too hard for that to happen. Demi Lovato tells him that a lot of people work really hard for their dreams, but it's not for everybody. The man responded with "that's why you use Auto Tune and I don't." Even Simon started laughing.
    • Britney got one right after by putting the guy in his place for saying that (For record, Demi doesn't need Auto Tune - just look up her singing the national anthem). However, the bit where he burned Demi is often shown out of context; knowing what he did, one can't help but side with the judges against him since Demi's "dreams" comment came right after his mediocre song-&-dance performance of a really creepy song that was apparently about a young stripper. When you have Britney Spears telling you you're a creep, that's saying something.
