The X Factor has been in trouble all season, getting a huge whipping from The Voice. But the lackluster ratings may see a bigger hit after the loss of Vino Alan this week. The blow does not soften, with the most hated contestant CeCe Fry not only hanging on, but ranking #5. Seriously? This seems ridiculous.
But the war between Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell is also heating up. She has been riding him all season and while he laughed it off early on, her stabs at his “old age” may be wearing on him now. Anyone who paid close attention to their interaction this week could see that behind his smug smile, he was not laughing anymore.
Clearly the 20-year-old judge may also be hitting a nerve with viewers. Who wants to hear a smart and sassy young know-it-all continuously remind us of how smart she is? Not me for sure. Demi’s attitude represents many annoying twenty something’s who believe life owes them something and they’ve learned all they need to know within their short life. Give me a break!
Early on I liked that she gave Simon a dose of his own medicine, but now she is getting under my skin. She really pissed me off when she kept putting down the very talented singer Vino Alan and now she has rubbed me the wrong way all around. She acts as though she has been in the music business for years. But a chick born in 1992 who just got her break in 2008 has nothing on an experienced multi-millionaire.
While typically it would not be in anyone’s best interest to protect Simon, especially after the low blows he has given contestants in the past, I would definitely support him if he popped her in the head one week. He looks as though he just may explode at any given moment, and would have good reason to snap.
Although Britney Spears is also useless and has nothing of substance to say when it comes to critiques, I would take her over Demi any day.
What was Simon thinking when he decided on a new judging panel? Demi dresses like a grandma, has no style and is clearly immature. Britney is weak and makes ugly faces like she is in pain. Simon may have thought he had his hands full with Paula Abdul, but he has now truly met his match. I bet he wishes he could bring Paula back now…at least they are about the same age.
In the end, this season is turning out to be a disappointment. It was definitely my favorite show when it came to singing competitions, but with Vino being voted off, CeCe staying and the addition of Demi and Britney…what a downer. Even the new hosts Mario Lopez and Khole Kardashian-Odom don’t work well together. Hopefully they can get it back on track.
On another note, it is sad that Jennifer Lopez is no longer a judge on American Idol. She was actually the real deal…being more than a triple threat. She can sing, dance, act, dress with style, give intelligent critiques and is beautiful. Demi could have really learned what being a true judge means from an expert with experience. Maybe she should review old footage and take notes.
