Maybe it's been BBC'd compared to the American version but it was painfully awful. I switched off after a while, it was dull as dishwater and the same old crap but lacking the energy of it's ITV rivals.
It was packed full of manipulative sentiment, hugs and tears, singers who were fat, had cancer - the usual sob stories. The bottom line of this show is now we can#t see your face even ugly people can be stars.
I hate the contrived format of X Factor, the judges arguments and all that but I found this somewhat worse.
