The series has divided opinion among music legends. Paul McCartney called it "not a bad thing" which "gives some people an opportunity, it gives them confidence, it gives them work". However, Elton John, despite appearing on it in 2013, described it as "a cruise ship show" which is "cruel" and "no way to find talent". Similarly, Sting called it a "soap opera which has nothing to do with music" and had "put music back decades". See more »

This series (2015) has shown that the X Factor has run its course, that the death knell has rung for Mr Cowell and co. and that it's time to end this misery. The nose dive in viewing figures has shown that people feel the same, it's been done to death and enough's enough.
I'm not saying that there aren't great singers on the show, but it's not about them, it's about the egos of Mr Cowell and co. What gives Cheryl the right to comment on people's singing abilities when she's mimed more times then Marcel Marceau.
The crying, grizzling, sob stories, 'it's my dream' thing ruins the show, they didn't have it on the U.S. series, what is the point, is it a singing competition?
Plaudits for giving us Leona Lewis, the one saving grace of the show, but otherwise I'm one of the millions that have switched off.
Please end it and give us a good drama on a Saturday night!! 1/10
