wtf is the x factor?

i dont watch much TV unless its sport or factual documentaries.
it is like pop idol. People sing for a recording contract. The judges are Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell and Sharon Osborne.

She's bloody terrible. People seem to think that being able to belt things out very loud equates to a good voice. Can you imagine listening to 45 minutes' worth (i.e. a CD) of her shouting ?
I concur completely.

I think Louis has to start giving G4 better songs.

And that should start with them singing Bohemian Rhapsody as they did in their first audition. If they sing that again, they probably won't be in the bottom two, at least for that show anyway.

Tabby is still favourite with the bookies, followed by Rowetta just behind him.

I thought G4 were amazing last night, so shocked they were in the bottom two. I'm watching it again at the minute on ITV2, they brought tears to my eyes!!

I was glad VWS went out though, they annoyed me in the first week when they were so ungracious about being in the bottom two. I heard them described as the Weather Girls on the radio the other day, so true!!

Not a big fan of Rowetta, as far as I'm concerned she's had her chance, she was a backing singer for the Happy Mondays, she's had a singing career, give someone else a chance!!

I thought the bottom two last night should have been Steve and Rowetta. I'm not a huge fan of VWS, but they did sound amazing last night, as were G4. I've never been impressed with anything Steve has sung, not much with Rowetta as she just yells her songs out. Steve just gets the bored housewife's vote and Rowetta...well I dunno. I wanted to punch Simon Cowell when he was so smug last night - his are easily the worst 2 acts.

I have to agree with you, I thought at least one of Simon's acts should have gone. They can't win it, who would realistically go and see either of them in concert? The people who tend to go to gigs are young people (yes I know I'm stereotyping) and they are not going to go and see someone old enough to be their parents. The only older artists people go and see are established acts who were fanous when they were younger!!

steve reminds me of my 20 year old flat mates 36 year old boyfriend. Tres gross. They're both (him and steve) really slimey and up themselves imo. Simon's peeps shouldn't win... but then again, i don't care who does really, i just don't wanna watch strictly come dancing lol

Exactly - establishing yourself as an artist when you're that age isn't going to get you an army of young fans - and its the younger age groups that probably put most money into the music industry, buy the singles, go to the concerts, etc. Personally I like Tabby - its nice to see someone different in he competition, who doesn't just sing the usual kareoke hits that have been done 5 zillion times before.

I think i am the only one in this forum that likes Steve and doesn't like Tabby. Tabby just gets the young girls vote, and the wannabe rockers.....if he was in a band, i can't see the logic in entering a pop talent contest.....sure, he wasn't earning no money when he was with his band.....but thats like many bands out there, you just have to keep trying and hopefully be able to make it big one day
rather then selling out and entering a pop talent show.

:rolleyes:

likely scenario :

some immigrant / homosexual / transexual / obese / or other politically correct muppet wins

said winner gets multi album deal from lame ass record company

said winner releases some 5th generation rip off of a "classic" or remixes something tragic released in the last 18 months, or heaven forbid some crap christmas tune which get drilled into our heads in the coming weeks until we pray to christ (should he exist) that he ends their existence.

said winners novelty fades off and they get the sack while the teens and that snide bastad cowell move onto Z factor, lame idol or some other piece of trash television.

has been winner hangs about on talk shows and still thinks they are the best thing since sliced bread.

whatever happened to musicians or people with skill?

end rant

Wow, u no what; that sounds about right. But it's actually wrong. The show has no immigrants, homesexuals, transexual or obese people. However Voices With Soul were all overweight. I know what you are saying in your post but it turns out this isn't the same scenario for EVERY programme, although I know it can seem like this sometimes. I think your narrow-minded views get you through like by dismissing other people when you think they are wrong. The truth is you are probably quite clever and have observed televison, and the same repetative things it shows, throughtout your life.
TV can, I agree, seem to be boring as producers, director, editors, presenters and the suchliek use the same ideas everytime but sometimes they ahev dfferent ideas or slightly corrupt ideas. Please do not think just because the people who have posted in this thread, who have watched the programme, are sad, etc, because it doesn't mean that. It simply means you have different ideas. So by assuming the begining of the programme its contents and what the outcome will be you are insulting the people who have posted. By saying they are too thick to realise the plot of the show altogther or by insinuating that if they do know what wil happen then to still watch the show is stupid. Maybe they will not think so but it is how I interpret your post. Try not to insult people because I don't think anybody likes to be insulted.
By the way i have looked over this post to search for anything you could take insulting and I hope you do not find it to be insulting because that is not how I intended it. Thanx .
