The X-Factor USA is quickly building to a deafening crescendo while we closely resemble smiling morticians, especially when an emotional audition is used as a lead-out for the episode. Tonight will be no different. We’re already plastering on smudge-proof make-up and water-proof guy liner so that no-one would see us weeping in our hands. We blame Jillian Jensen and Jeffrey Gutt for this emotional reaction!
