interesting 6 of the x factor uk finalists were selected, bit of controversy, though that is nothing new for the x factor uk, this year 6 out of the 12 finalists had been asked to audition by the x factor producers.
though to be fair, tey were not guarrenteed to get to the finals like they did, but, 6 of the finalists had made it through the finals last year, after being asked to audition by the x factor producers.
well over the years it does seem that the x factor uk, has got more and more, formulated, i wouldn't say it is staged, but it is directed by the producers, to try and appear a certain way, well that is there jobs to direct the x factor, and make the show to a certain formula.
but if they over do this, it is going to look fake, because it will end up like everyone is acting, and it is turning into more of a popularity contest, rather then a singing contest.
whereas when x factor first started about 10 years ago, the acts seemed to be a lot more natural and real talent that had just decided to give it a go, whereas as now some of the acts appear too over produced at times on the uk x factor.
