Do you like spinning chairs?
3 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For years the BBC have watched as ITV have had hit reality show after reality show and now they've decided to ditch half their comedy programmes in favour of spending loads of money on this reality show.

The gamble nearly paid off, the initial auditions did well in the ratings but this was purely based on novelty factor - judges in spinning chairs with their backs to the audience. It was something we hadn't seen before so people watched it.

Then they put the contestants in a boxing ring for a 'battle'. This again was something we'd never seen before so the ratings were still good.

But then the show just became like every other talent show and after being touted as something 'totally different that would change the music industry' we realised that no, this was just a talent contest like the many others we've seen come and go.

Nice gamble by the BBC but the ratings tell the story.
