Accusations of beauty.....

Due to being on nights and that you enjoy making the most of your TV License fee, you have been watching Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor. Of the two shows you seem to enjoy the former more than the latter.

The X Factor seems to be a platform for people to broadcast their hard ships and their problems, it also seems to be a launching point for bad tabloid headlines. Owen likes to waste Police time by needing an escort because of the mass hysteria he caused when he returned home to Northern Ireland. JLS or as you like to call them, Aston and his backing vocals, seem to be a waste of air time. How can the judges miss the fact that Aston sings, and then the other three sing in the background. It's hard to believe.

The only part of the show that was actually worth watching was when Alexandra and Diana were on. Diana's style is totally unique and very refreshing, and Alexandra is an amazing singer, powerful, professional, and hard working. She had to win, because if she hadn't, it would have made a mockery of the entire show.

Strictly Come Dancing is excellent, not just the attractive dancers (Lisa Snowdon and Erin Boag) and the actual dancing, but also the banter from the judges, and dare you say it, Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly. And most importantly of all, it is not full of teenagers attempting to get the spotlight by making bad tabloid headlines and storming the stage on live performances.

What seems to have hit you most of all is the improvement of one of the celebrity dancers, you don't pretend to know much about the subject, but anyone should have noticed it. She was slow and wooden at the start, but over the weeks, she has become the best dancer on the show, most likely due to the effort and guidance of her professional dance partner Brendan Cole.

You are predicting that Lisa Snowdon will win, and you hope she does, not because she is beautiful, but because she dances beautifully.

'To dance is to be out of yourself, larger, more powerful, more beautiful. This is power, it is glory on earth.'
