Tonight’s live episode of The X Factor will borrow an idea from The Voice -all four judges will perform on stage together.
That was how The Voice first opened in the US, and it set the scene for judges reminding us all of their talent.
Mel B., Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Ronan Keating and Guy Sebastian will all perform a song together tonight.
Of course, The Voice has arguably borrowed from X Factor by having judges mentor contestants anyway, so I guess that makes it even. Ronan Keating also performed on the show last year.
Meanwhile, what’s with the promo for the live show? It sounds like it was made for Today Tonight.
“This is it. No second chances,” an ominous voice booms.
“One stuff up. COULD COST THEM EVERYTHING.”
The tone is hardly embracing of their talent. Nothing about how talented they are?
I guess this is where we are reminded that the show’s format now begins to see judges get snarky about the other acts on the show, and that’s where Australia’s Got Talent outshines it. It’s more common for all the judges on AGT to support an act, than the more divisive X Factor.
