Misunderstood
1 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I only started watching Xfactor last year, and then mostly only the auditions. This year (2010 Xfactor) was different.

I was like all the other haters out there, believing it to be some stupid money-making scheme by Simon Cowell which shames terrible singers then praises slightly better singers.

This year I found myself mistaken. The auditions are still the same, it's just the audience laughing at bad performances (don't get me wrong I'm not saying it's bad to laugh at some freaky old lady screaming down the microphone) but this time, when it came to the live shows, I actually liked the contenders. Not only could they sing well like I believed no-one really could on the Xfactor, most seemed to have nice personalities, only shown further on back-stage shows like Xtra factor. You can choose your favourites which would for me be the good singers with good personalities, and then choose your most hated. (Some one you just don't like the look of or a bad singer, it's your choice) and then from then it's listening to them sing and hoping your favourite stays in.

It can get tedious and boring at times, I often left half-way through once my favourite act had performed, but it's much better than I expected.

It may just be this year, maybe next year it'll be packed-full with boring generic singers. Either way I know I'll have to check it out at least.
