Advantages: light hearted tv
Disadvantages: A little cheesey at times
This show has been running for years now and is basically a talent contest for members of the joe public to audition for a singing contest. As with other telent competitions, you have to audtion in front of a live audience (which can be cruel at times) and not only the audience, but more importantly your singing in front of 4 judges also. These judges vary over the years from Simon Cowell, Danni Minouge, Sharon Osbourne, Gary Barlow, Tulisa but most importantly the one still standing judge throughout all the years is Louis Walsh.
Once the judges have decided whether they are through or not, they then have another audtion which is just infront of the fellow contestants, usually it involes singing from a choice of pre-selected songs, and even being put into groups also. From this point then if they make it through here then there through to the judges houses. This is were the catagories are divided and given a mentor (which is also a judge from the previous rounds) Groups, Over 30's, girls & boys; once at the judges houses they get training and guidance from them and a final song to be sang in front of their judge (and a fellow collegue within the industry they trust), if they make it through this final chapter then their through to the live shows.
In the live shows they sing a song each week, to which there is a public vote off and finally the winner, gets a winning single that will hopefully achieve the christmas No1 in the charts. The benefit to being on the show is it gives you coverage and exsposure; you also benefit from a free holiday if you make it to the judges houeses, and if luckily enough to get through to the final, you get a lovely makeover also.
The TV Show normally gets massive coverage, and you find most people are normally watching this on Saturday nights. It's light hearted tv that you know it's best to watch as it's what most people will be talking about. The show airs late on in the year, therfore timing it just right so the winner is announced christmas week in time for the exclusive christmas no 1
Summary: One of the top reality shows that we all love to watch / hate ... but still talk about it either way
