VFTW has known for ages that the mentoring premise on X Factor is bullshit; I even wrote an article about it two years ago. Cracks on the American version have been appearing over the past couple of weeks, first when Simon changed Emblem3's song 24 hours before their performance (5:18 mark), and this week when he did the same to Lyric 145 (at start of video). This begs the question: Where was mentor Simon all week while his acts were flailing around? As it turns out, it doesn't matter as it's the producers, not the mentors, whom decide what songs the acts are going to do, how they're going to look and everything else on this show. And now X Factor may have gotten more than they bargained for when they revealed the voting totals as the contestants at the bottom of the rankings and their mentors are letting their rage out on the Producers, the true controllers of this show.
Read on to discover all the rage and deception...
X Factor debuts tonight and there's about as much excitment as there is for your grandmother appearing in the quarterfinals of her lawn bowling tournamnet. Simon's world is falling apart as everything he's touched lately has been a massive flop and, in a last desperate attempt to save his show, he's totally sold out to the tards by bringing in Britney Spears and Demi Lovato as judges. And if you think lip syncer Britney and 19-year-old Demi judging singing is as low as you can get, you're wrong as one of the hosts is very likely Khloe Kardashian.
While X Factor was a big dud last year, it had its fair share of VFTW moments, including Asstro's awesome run as our pick, and a look at VFTW's list of this year's spoilers for the finalists suggests there may be more.
I'll be blogging starting tonight as we watch Simon completely fall apart as his final chance at salvaging the most important project of his career is surely going to to fail. And just to make sure, The Voice is intentionally going directly against him tonight, just to drive the final nail in the coffin.
It's official: Demi Lovato has been named as the fourth judge on X Factor. If you're like me, you're asking yourself: Who the fuck is Demi Lovato to be judging a singing contest? All I know is she's a 19-year-old from the Disney machine and she likes to cut herself.
I get what Simon's trying to do but how will contestants like Stacy Francis and Leroy Bell feel about being judged by a 19-year-old? In any case, this is Simon's last chance because if this doesn't work, nothing will.
By the way Simon, next to your two new judges, you're suddenly looking very old.
