X Factor moving with the times

For once, I have to commend Simon Cowell. How can you make even more money out of a franchise that's basically already pushing the limit. Well, now you can enjoy the song from every Saturday night by downloading them via iTunes, straight(ish) after the show. And each one for a cool 99p.

I thought this was genius, for one reason. You could have a number 1 song from now until Christmas from any of the acts. Now in my head, that's brilliant. But unfortunately, that won't be the case.

There's a little catch.

"To protect the integrity of the X Factor competition, sales information in relation to the live contestant performances from the current season of X Factor will not be reflected in any sales charts."

Dammit. And there's that great idea crushed. So who's starting another #RATM for Christmas number one instead?
