Poor old John Lennon. The former Beatle, who would be seventy years old today had he not been shot dead in the entrance way of Manhattan's Dakota building by deranged fan Mark Chapman on December 8th 1980, was last night cruelly murdered all over again.
By Aiden Grimshaw on the X-Factor.
Aiden, who had hitherto shown some degree of potential in the contest, elected to serenade us with his rendition of Lennon's 'Jealous Guy'
It was an unmitigated disaster which undoubtedly would have had the former Beatle spinning in his grave. Even Aiden admitted that his performance was disastrous.
"I was right proper shite out there tonight," he allegedly confessed to friends.
Indeed he was. Here at Skoob Entertainment News we're not renowned for being brutal, but the best way we can describe Aiden's dismal semi-hysterical performance is "fucking crap"
Now that's what we call constructive criticism.
Lennon's music is best performed in a laid back, ultra relaxed manner - not like a fucking screech owl on PCP.
More as we get it.
