X-Factor is the national phenomenon that has captured the Saturday night of so many people. The public vote for their favorite acts each week to finally un-veil the latest music star to hit Britain. On paper it sounds exciting but the actual show itself is average. Of course i’m only talking for myself.
Last week I read an article in the paper which expressed concerns over the polling system at the end of every show on Saturday night. According to this article in the paper last week the phones were dead for over four hours on one Saturday night yet no one had reported that they had troubles getting through or placing their vote. This leads me to assume that people were voting yet the votes were not being counted??
This is not the first time that x-factor has been under the spot light. In 2006 it was reported that the x-factor competition was fixed so Leona Lewis could win. The rival contestant, Ben, stormed out of the show on the last week of the competition stating that he thought the show was rigged. Yet 2006 was not the only year that this accusation has popped out. The 2004 and 2005 competitions were both plagued by claims that the show was rigged in such a way that the last three contestants are always one for each judge therefore making it as even as possible and keeping people as entertained as possible right to the last minute.
Again, this is only my opinion but you have to ask yourself if the show is a little dodgy!?
