Default The X Factor Celebrity 2019



Honestly, The X Factor UK 2018 was terrible.
I didn't like neither the contestants and the judges.
I'm not surprised that this year are going to change format.
BUT... I have a feeling it could be even worst.
Will someone watch it?

The list of contestants is here: https://www.itv.com/xfactor/news/mee...ty-contestants

I don't know any of them. I imagine they are famous only in UK.
Anyway, I'll give a chance to this show for a couple of episodes but I don't expect much.

Ricki Lake is the only celebrity I recognise, Martin Bashir is a name I have heard, but I've no clue who the others are. Apparently Hayley Hasselhoff is David Hasselhoff's daughter (Baywatch).

So they've had enough of giving regular people a chance of fame and letting D list celebs a 2nd chance?

I might give it a look, could be interesting to see how it works. It's gonna be weird skipping the audition stages.

ugh... so I guess the disabling of comments is actually to stop the feedback, because I can imagine people wouldn't let X Factor hear the end of it once they could express what they feel about this idea lol

I watched the first episode. I didn't clearly understand the rules but... no Auditions, no Bootcamp. They started directly from the Home Visit (Simon Cowell's house in Malibu). It was similar to last year Home Visit, with many musical producers and guests to watch the contestants performances.

The singers are very low skilled, but judges have been polite with them.

My personal winner is Natalie Valerin. Anyway, she doesn't sing as solo. She is in a girl group called V5 (They are 5 web influencers). I don't know the other girls but I watched some YouTube videos of Natalie and... I love her.
Her voice is nothing special but good. Primarily she's really beautiful. She's a kind of Camila Cabello.

Even if The X Factor format is definitely dead, I think I'll keep watching this show. It's somehow entertaining.

I'm not watching the celebrity version but I'm interested in the All Stars version when this is over. Diana Vickers and Leona Lewis rumoured to return.

This is funny: Natalie Valerin, the only girl who worthed to be seen in this show has suddenly been replaced by another one in the V5 group.
The fact was not announced in the show, only few persons realized that.
I said above here she was a kind of Camila Cabello. I was right, and she left her group even faster.

Alondra, Natalie, Sofia, Wendii, Laura
