SINGER BEVERLEY KNIGHT BLASTS X-FACTOR
“A lot of my friends say that I should go on that show, but I don’t think I could get into bed with that monstrosity,”.
“I couldn’t ever stand there and effectively tell them how to become a superstar. They won’t be, and a huge amount of money will be sunk into them that could have gone to someone who has worked hard for it. I love to give my advice and expertise to artists who are putting in the groundwork, but that show requires a level of fakeness that I couldn’t give.
“I’d want to get deep – talk about annunciation and posture – but the TV wouldn’t want that! They want pantomime.”
Beverley speaks the truth!
Last years X-Factor was the worst. An arrogant Simon Cowell didn’t even try to hide the fact that the show was a complete and utter farce, and treated viewers/voters who tuned in each week like idiots. He just didn’t care. All he cared about was taking the show to America and Cheryl “now jobless” Cole.
