I can only assume ticket sales have been poor and X Factor offers last minute marketing. Even then this doesn't sound like the Mannies. Perhaps they'll take the opportunity to denounce the evilness of the Cowell empire? Fingers crossed. Regardless, it'll be fun thinking of me mum watching them belt out say "Motown Junk". Saw them in Melbourne 3 years ago and they were brilliant. Best moment was the look on my wife's face when Nicky came on stage in best frock - she had no idea of his cross dressing tendencies. Now that will be a great look for X Factor.
