Judges strike a bum note

ONE has to wonder about the credibility of the X Factor judges.

On the Elton John themed night, Cheryl Cole admitted she was "not familiar" with Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting. Why? It's one of his biggest hits .

Even worse, Louis Walsh chose a song on The Beatles themed night – Hippy Hippy Shake – that they did not officially record (it was released posthumously on a Live At The BBC CD); it was a hit for The Swinging Blue Jeans, not The Beatles, and even that was a cover version.

Get your facts right.
