X factor, bun n chesse and the delusions of wannabe singers
Sunday afternoon catching up with the x factor and by far one of the worse groups I have seen was called bun n cheese! I grew up eating bun and cheese so although I thought the name choice for the group was not really a good one for a wannabe female pop group I knew what the name was about! So I was I thought this is weird but cool at the same time.
So as I geared myself up for them to actually sing I felt like although the name was slightly off key, the singing hopefully would not be so bad.
I had hope for this group of 3 black female 19-23 year old's, they seemed so confident.
The backing track started playing and it soon became clear that no one had bothered to learn the words to the song and or the arrangement of the song who would sing what part and when. They stood on stage discussing who should sing “let's just all sing” or “I don't know the words” I heard them whispering while the track played and others hummed trying to start singing.
Needless to say they did not get put through and I am not sure if its a case that they could not sing at all (as no one started singing properly) what I do know is that they seemed to be very happy to go up on telly with a dodgy name and give all the big talk about how great they are, but they clearly never prepared for the actual singing.
Its got me wondering what makes these individuals who can't sing, think that they can sing?
And also what's with the whole bravado thing "we are so great" etc. Who told you that?
And also wa gwarn for the people who come out to support them, standing behind the stage with Dermot on camera! Myself personally I would not be seen anywhere near an x factor audition with a relative or friend who can not sing a decent note to save their life! Hell no! Far less appear on camera giving the impression that I believe in the singing abilities lmao!
I don't know if I am alone on this one.....lol!
Show's like the x factor always seem to draw out these crazy kooky characters! which is great for my sunday afternoon viewing due to the jokes I get. But I do wonder about how in touch peps are with reality lol!
What is your opinion bdss'ers should you support someone no matter how ludicrous their dream? If yes how far would you go? Would you allow yourself to be caught on camera? Lol!
