Everyone knows or at least most know of the Xfactor. But very quickly for those who don't. Xfactor is talent contest for wannabe singers. The show is an elimination process. After auditions 12 acts are divided into 4 categories groups, boys, girls and the overs. Each group is mentored by 1 of the 4 judges. Every week each act performs and is then the public vote to keep there favourite act in the contest, 1 act leaves every week.
Now 2011 the shows 8th successive year running is well underway. This time with a new judging panel consisting of Tulisa (Ndubz) Kelly Rowland (Destiny's Child) Gary Barlow (Take That) and Louis Walsh (Music promote from Ireland) Louis is the only remaining judge from the original panel. But I personally feel this will be his last year.
In my view this show should be about one thing and one thing only; the talent and watching the acts develop each week.
Unfortunately the 2011 show has completely forgotten this! What is in the papers everyday the antic of the judges and the off screen behaviour of the acts. Nothing about the on stage performance.
We have seen groups split up an reformed, we have seen a group member drop out and replaced by someone already voted off by the public. Sorry but I think this is wrong!!! The next thing you know we will have an act chosen on appearance to mime alongside an act with a fantastic voice.
Frankie left of screen, which really I can't blame the lad or the show producers it really was not going well for either parties. However I not being a Take That fan but still I feel that Gary Barlow has been treated unfairly. He is the only judge not to have lost a single act to the public vote yet he has lost an act.
Kelly Rowland lost Sophie to the public vote and has gained another act, what a joke!! No disrespect to Amelia Lilly... What a sensational rendition of the show must go on. You must put this into perspective the girl is only 17 and that was incredible.
The worse part of all this was Kelly Rowlands behaviour towards Garry once Amelia was voted back in. Garry had the rite to be a little cocky and smug having 3 acts Kelly did not and I felt it was an unprofessional kick in the nuts to Garry.
The show has provided some shockers with the departure of Johnny ahead of Kitty Brucknell. Seriously what is that all about? Credit were credit is due Kitty can sing but realistically you need to have the likeability factor which she does not and Johnny did. Johnny has a fantastic unique voice and is a wonderful character.
But the issue I have with this year's Xfactor is the judges!! If I wanted to watch a soap I would watch Corrie... The only way to explain it is petty arguments only seen in a school playground. These are adults yet none can handle critism and take it ridiculously personal. I mean really Kelly flew to America than could not fly back because of a sore throat? I will let you all judge that one!!
Louis Walsh... were do you start with Louis? I really believe a lot of what he does is put on for camera. There is no way anyone could be so dam idiotic. Louis launched a vicious attack on Frankie after a bad performance. This is the man who brought the world Jedward, Wagner and attempted to bring us Goldie!!!!!. He has no rite to turn around and tell anyone they can not sing.
Kelly Rowland, I really don't want to stero type but I don't know how else to explain it. I can not stand all those American isms she uses, completely ridiculous and not necessary. I know she is passionate and credit to her but please stop with those stupid sayings!!
This is only my opinion on this years show. It has a huge fan base which evidences that people enjoy. But the fact that Strictly Come Dancing beat the show on viewers this year for the first time in 4 years really shows how the show is going down in credibility.
I am sure a lot of people won't agree with my thoughts but like I say this is my perspective.
The Xfactor ITV 1 Saturday and Sunday nights.
Summary: 2011 show has been ruined by the judging panel
