I see what you did there


The Daily Mail spies trouble brewing between X Factor judges Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue; A double plus good observation if only for coining the term "Tron-esque".

Tensions on the X Factor judging panel could be a little higher when Dannii Minogue sees the video for Cheryl Cole's first solo single. The promo for Fight For This Love, which was released last week, bears an uncanny resemblance to the Australian star's 2002 video for single Put The Needle On It.

Both videos see the X Factor judges posing in front of a black and white, Tron-esque, grid background.

There is only one way to be sure.

I am not convinced the Daily Mail even watched the videos.

Ms. Cole spends about 15 seconds in front of a black-on-white grid, and Ms. Minogue spends the vast majority of her video in front of a white-on-black grid. Monochrome grids are IP-worthy constructs now?

I am no Tron junkie, but calling that visual effect Tron-esque is like calling "My Humps" Kipling-esque. Bit of a stretch, that.

I confess I may have had an ulterior motive.
