Now that The X Factor is over, Guy Sebastian has been quick to lay the blame on the show’s failure this season.
He told the Daily Telegraph: “The ratings were a huge struggle, but I think there was a lot against us. (The season) was brutally short. We said goodbye to four people in one episode. I mean, come on. And it wasn’t the right chemistry on the panel.
“It’s time to evolve the show. People aren’t stupid,” Sebastian said. “They know manufactured television, and they know when something has run its course and people are clutching at straws.”
He also took aim at fellow judge Iggy Azalea, describing her as “a bit of a weirdo.”
“You’ve got to be invested and she didn’t turn up,” he noted referring to the time given to mentoring acts.
Seven is yet to confirm the show’s future but after disappointing numbers is not expected to renew the show.
