Because of the holiday weekend and my drinking activities, I didn't really pay as much attention to the X-Factor fallout from Britney Spears' performance as I should have. Take That which is a great UK group made a really good point when they called Britney's performance crap. X-Factor like American Idol is all about the singing abilities of the performers. Can you imagine if on American Idol everyone was allowed to lip synch? What would be the point of the show? It would be to find the best looking person who could pretend they were singing and they would always win. So, Britney, who is a superstar and thus should have the best voice is allowed to come on and not sing, it kind of ruins the whole point of the show.
"The truth is all the contestants on X Factor are so talented and were able to sing and dance live, so why couldn’t Britney do it? It’s the whole point of the show and her miming looked stupid."
I couldn't stomach the Britney documentary, but FW watched it and said that it was just one long plug for her new album and that Britney said that everyone shaves their head at some point in their life. Uh huh. Larry Rudolph of course said Britney was totally fine and normal and great. Ummm yeah. Larry? You were the producer of the show, had final cut and make your living off her. I doubt you would say anything other than that. Britney said she has seen life on earth at it's hardest. Oh, while she was shaving her head did she head off to Darfur and check out what was going on there? I would venture to guess that Britney couldn't even tell you what continent Darfur is on.
I wonder if it is possible if Britney is taking some kind of medication and they are interfering with her ability to sing and dance at the same time. Everyone I spoke with yesterday who watched that Good Morning America appearance all said she looked lethargic. I would too if you woke me up at 3am, but maybe she is taking medications. I do think though that until she actually goes out somewhere and sings with no backing track at all that anyone will really take her seriously. Right now she isn't any better than a Solid Gold dancer.
