X Factor long past its sell-by date
I SEE the X Factor has been holding auditions in Dundee again.
No doubt another batch of starry-eyed, young (and not so young) wannabe pop stars will have attempted to “own” or “smash” a timeless classic in the futile pursuit of stardom.
The X Factor and other similar so-called talent shows are now past their sell-by date.
The millions of viewers who tune into these programmes are almost as gullible as the performers whose misguided dreams will quickly turn to dust.
Yes, the production is slick but it’s a sad indictment on society that we fall for this type of stage-managed hype.
