What I hate more though is the show itself, and the fact that its a given that if you win (or come close to winning) you are automatically a "popstar".....but the general public accepts this knowingly, and buys all their music.
What??????! Am I missing something?
Now a good singing voice is important obviously, and there's no denying that the top 5 contestants all have good voices.
Then there is the 'X-Factor' ie. the 'fashion and beauty factor'. Fine, the top 5 contestants are all good looking, and have had a professional dress them so they "have the X-Factor".
But surely these are just tools of the trade. I have a spanner...I know how to use one....I even have a denim dungarees.....but I'm not a qualified plumber! Surely the real talent is in the song writing.
Now, I know my point couldn't be any less original, but I feel shows like the X Factor are just taking the piss now. To me, record companies who sign these people say,
"Look! This persons got a good voice, looks good, has survived the mental torment of the competition and Simon Cowell.....they are a Popstar!.....right quick....somebody write a quick song for them to sing on the back of a fag packet, and we'll make millions."
