X factor is axed

ITV has announced that the X Factor is to be axed. 

As ever, the Daily Mash have it spot on:

Fears for future of music as X-Factor axed

29th July 2021

 
THE greatest era of British music ever known is feared to have ended forever with the cancellation of The X-Factor

ITV’s legendary music show launched the careers of the most gifted stars Britain has ever known, including Olly Murs, Fleur East and Sam Bailey. Fans are now afraid that a future Rak-Su could go undiscovered. 

Music journalist Jules Cook said: “We’ll never know another golden age of British music like this one. The world weeps. 

“The 2010 series alone brought us the matchless Matt Cardle, the unforgettable Cher Lloyd, global titans One Direction and the magisterial Wagner. That’s better than every band that came out of the 60s put together. 

“Are we really ready to deprive the world of the next JLS or Joe McElderry? Doesn’t the government have a moral duty to subsidise young, exciting artists like Reggie ‘n’ Bollie? 

“Without the X-Factor acts will have to hone their craft playing live, write their own songs, and sell themselves on nothing more than their music. It’s like going back to the Dark Ages.”

Not exactly "axed",  though- just not recommissioned.

Not the slightest hint of sarcasm.

Good riddance.

But I think we've got to expect it's going to be replaced by something as equally puerile?  Either that or another run of all the James Bond films followed by all the Harry Potter films, AGAIN.

There's still "the rap game" on BBC 3 - which sounds so awful I can hardly acknowledge it. If ever there was a genre ill-suited to the x factor treatment, it's rap music.

I'm glad this show has come to an end, no more silly Louie Walsh  putting complete rubbish talentless acts through , two spring to mind, Rylan Clarke and Jedward,  the most infuriating thing about this is good talented acts were sent home whilst  the Idiots mentioned romped to fame and a big  fortune, Scandless. :gag:
