10 Reasons to Boycott X Factor

This is not an opportunity to jump onto the bandwagon that is diverging away from the car crash TV that is X Factor, but it is me honestly and faithfully turning my back for good… I promise! Having not being an uncompromising fan of the show I can always dip in and dip out, year on year, although not without any emotional attachments. These feelings that are boiling up within me are not excitement for the acts on the show, but instead for my complete loathing of the acts that are obviously just wannabes. I know you say ‘aren’t they all!’ Okay yes in essence they are. But having an appreciation for naturally gifted artists, that make music that is sweet to ones ear, I believe I am not asking for the impossible from these reality audition shows. Or am I? Is it not just light hearted fun and can everyday people not have opportunities like this to showcase their talent? Hmmm… I disagree! Success and achievement is hard work that may take months and most likely years. But 12 weeks to mould somebody to have that X-FACTOR is unrealistic and deludes the youths today in thinking that celebrity-dome and success can be easily attained.

So now my list is compiled after a concoction of last nights live show, previous series and past contestants.

1. Apart from Leona Lewis, who has actually been the international star that they promised?

2. Two words… Katie and Cher! Need I say more… They are both highly talentless wannabes that have analysed and imitated performers like Lady Gaga, Keri Hilson, Gwen Stefani and Pixie Lott.

3. Cheryl Cole/ Tweedy/ Whatever is a wannabe herself that feels that her looks and styling will further her career. Okay it has done so and her personal relations to stars like Will I Am and a premiership footballer have too bumped her up on the celeb ladder. But not to diverge away from the point I have to question her presence on the panel for a show that is supposed to find the worlds next top performers. Her experience and talent are not viable reasons as to why she is there. Well I have to leave this point now otherwise this will turn in to an uncontrollable rant.

4. Everybody is drunk on some special juice they are supplying at the X Factor studios. Why are the audience cheering on Cher and Katie like they are something special and even worse Simon…? Yes, Simon is hailing these two as the next Lady Gaga, calling them different and current! Argh… the frustration towards the words that spilled out his mouth when I was thinking the opposite can’t be explained. Dated, dreary and clone is the words that came to mind when I saw them.

5. And on that note… What has happened to Simon Cowell? Where is the scrutiniser that knows what genuine talent is? Well he has left the building and has returned with his pound sign shades on. I haven’t heard a bad word come out of his mouth this season. Well, this could be down to him protecting the integrity of his show after the Gamu debacle. The old Simon would have been able to spot phoneys like Cher Lloyd.

6. Sinitta! Why is she on the show? Is there a need for a show clown? Don’t many of those who auditioned tick that box already?

7. X Factor is well past its expiry date. Do the honourable thing like Big Brother and walk the plank and jump off into the abyss.

8. The use of paraphernalia and extravaganza is put in place to hide the fact that an act is talentless. Case 1: The camp dancers in neon spandex cycling shorts throughout Diva Fevers performance! Case 2: Katie’s rainbow coloured daft punk style helmet in this case did disguise the fact she is talentless.

9. X Factor is making us into a nation of couch potatoes that accept any program that is thrust into our faces. Isn’t Saturday’s for socialising? I thought we are country that live for the weekends. So lets get off our butts and socialise at a bars, parties, gala bingo… Not on twitter #hassing X Factor!

10. Jedward. Proof the the show is fixed.
