Shayne Ward & Kylie Minogue Turn 'The X Factor' Into The Sex Factor

You'd be hard pressed to find a better-looking pair of performers for The X Factor than Shayne Ward and Kylie Minogue, who each belted out their latest jams tonight on the UK talent show.

Grated, I wasn't crazy about Shayne's casual jeans and t-shirt look—I thought the least he could have done for the fans that have been waiting three years for his return is come out on stage completely naked—like this. (Where's the consideration, Shayne?)

He performed his new single "Gotta Be Somebody," which was made available for download on the UK iTunes store today (official release tomorrow).

Kylie did her upcoming third Aphrodite single "Better Than Today," and I effing love the new Pac Man routine/dancers/red dress, etc. Let's face it—we were all ready for some new moves from Lady Minogue after enduring the chair routine over and over for the past three months.

Love how judge Dannii Minogue gives her sister a "10 out of 10."

Two really great performances from two of the nicest UK-based pop stars out there.
