The X Factor
Advantages: Some excellent talent
Disadvantages: Judges Cowardice!
I have been less interested in this series of X Factor as it goes along as there seems to be a misinterpretation of the point of the show. This is mainly notable in the judges approach to it.
It seems that the only judge who is judging based on the SINGING talent is Gary Barlow. He made a very true remark on last nights show when he said as long as rylan stays in good singers will go out.
So, how does someone like rylan who does not sing well right form the beginning become so popular. His act is not even good. He finally demonstrates an element of singing talent last night, too little too late if you ask me.
How is it that they go on about it being about singing but when it comes down to it it is lost amongst the need to have someone who is the joke of the show.
It seems to me that the problem with this years show is not the acts who are performing but the judges who are paid to judge a singing competition failing to do so. They all say someone is a good singer, has the best voices in the competition but when it comes to the crunch they make the public decide. Cowardice of the highest order! They should have some courage, I would have more respect for them if they said what they thought rather than what they think we want to happen. Maybe if they take it to deadlock they should lose wages! not once has someone gone out on a judges decision this year!
Maybe they should put the sing off to an audience vote then at least it would be reflected by the atmosphere in the studio. There were distinctive boos last night and how a performer like Kye can go out when he is clearly head an shoulders above Rylan in talent I will never know.
I don't;t blame Lucy Spraggan for pulling out, I have more respect for her being the person she is than being moulded into something she is not.
Anyway, Judges, grow a pair and say what you really think. It is a singing show after all.
Next year they could call it "the x factor, don't worry if you can;t sing, if you have entertainment value we will love you even if you are tone deaf!
Summary: Turning off!
