Because the song is called I’m Still Standing, and one of the things that sometimes stands is a bowling pin, that’s what all the dancers are dressed as. It’s obvious if you think about it. You have to think about it for a really long time, perhaps several hundred years. But in the end, when you’ve spent so much of your life thinking about ten-pin bowling that your career and relationship and health have all become distant memories, and you’ve turned into the sort of person who lives in a bin and sneaks up on people just to shout “BOWLING PINS! DON’T YOU SEE?” right into their faces, then it’ll probably become quite obvious.
I’m still liveblogging X Factor for The Guardian. Lucky me.
