Proof that X-Factor / BGT is crap

Proof that X-Factor / BGT is crap

Postby UFGN » Sun Sep 11, 2011 9:55 pm

Top West End shows have understudies of course for when lead actors are unavailable. When the Understudy is not available either, the "second cover" performs. This is rare, happening maybe in ten shows a year.

At one performance of Les Mis there was no lead, no understudy, and no second cover available for the biggest role in the show.

So surely they cancelled the show because no-one left in the cast was good enough to sing the part, right? Er, no.

A random from the ensemble cast stepped up, never having played the role before. and this is what happened...



Susan Boyle my arse. So many talented people out there already, doing real work for average or crap money.... Instead of being one of Simon Cowell's money puppets.

That is all.

I like anything that gives average Joe's from shit backgrounds that chance to earn (or rather make) millions.

From an artistic perspective, musically the show is shit. They look for people with a decent voice and/or the potential to be marketed (whether it be through looks or if their "style" fits the current trend), it has nothing to do with artistry, and I would say that having a strong voice is less than half of what's needed to be a great artist.

... writing your own damn lyrics would be a step in the right direction!!!

What is this shit you're forcing us to listen to UFGN?

This doesn't prove anything about X-factor.
The whole point of the show is that any member of the public can audition. If this Killian Donnelly person wanted to audition she could, nothing stopping her.

Him lol

The point is its not about who is most talented is it? They had some bod perform the same song as in that clip a few years back on BGT.... the judges were loving it but actually he was crap compared to this Donnelly bloke, who is just a swing in one of dozens of shows currently playing in London. Its all about who will make money for Cowell. The acts on those shows are nothing special

ll those that get to the later stages get a little pay day with magazine/TV interviews etc. Plus they get a little exposure and usually do well enough to start singing at Butlins and cruise ships every summer ;)
