If you live in the UK, you're more than aware that it's extremely hard to escape the X Factor at this time of year. Multiple TV shows, adverts, radio, The best thing to come out of the X Factor was Rage Against The Machine getting to number One on Christmas day last year thanks to a campaign against the whole reality TV show. But that's a whole other essay we could write. This weekend Simon Cowell's money making machine came to a close and on the finale they roped in a performance from Coldplay. They rolled up to lay down a a two track set featuring Mylo Xyloto cut "Charlie Brown" before running straight into their single "Paradise". Peep the footage at the top and I'll say this: Got to give it to them for the spectacle they put on. I really like the wristband idea they've employed on their recent UK arena tour, it's beautiful to watch on this scale.
