The new season of the popular singing competition show The X Factor started with a bang. However, Simon Cowells’ revamped show with the addition of younger judges, has two huge problems. The first issue is the amazing singers with heartfelt stories and the other is Britney Spears.
This year the talent has peaked so the fans and judges will have a big challenge when the serious cuts come to fruition. From the amazing young single mom, to the talented girl living with 23 relatives, to the single dad with the raspy voice, the 550 pound man with a heavenly voice, and the girl who was bullied as a child, they are all just so darn good. It’s surprising to see just how much untapped talent is all around us. Many of their stories are painful and moving. I just cannot get enough of their singing abilities and could watch the show for hours….it is incredible this year! The big problem is…who will they have to let go? That will be tough.
But what I can get enough of is Britney Spears. While she has a huge following and has reached a level many other artists have been unable to obtain, she is completely useless on the show. Hold on all you Britney fans, this has nothing to do with her personal talent or accomplishments. It’s just her lack of constructive feed back and bland inarticulate phrases. Judges: “What do you think, should we vote them in?” Britney: “Definitely yes”.
I truly hate to burst the bubble of all the Britney follower’s but she sucks as a judge. And it probably has nothing to do with the recent “Meth” rumors being spread by her past manager Sam Lufti. Simon Cowell would have done better keeping Paula Abdul…at least she sounded as though she had at least an 8th grade education.
And what is up with the ugly faces? Seriously, I do not mean to bash Britney, but she looks far beyond her years and those frowns she constantly makes are not becoming. She seems like a nice enough girl, but there is no hope for her as a judge. I am truly sorry to have to say this and was rooting for her too. But I have to keep it real.
The producers should seriously consider sticking a earpiece in her ear and feeding her comprehensive words to share with the contestants. I really believe Honey Boo Boo could do a better job.
How many times do I have to ask Simon to call me? This video was already done last year…I would be a lot cheaper and I guarantee the words “Definitely yes” would never come out of my mouth. So the video is not the greatest…but I know it beats Britney:). Seriously Simon…call me.
If not, at least bring Paula Abdul back…she is greatly missed!
On another note…I originally was not sure of 20-year-old, Demi Lovato, due to her lack of experience, but she actually is a great judge. Demi seems natural and has far more to say than expected. Now that WAS a good move.
