For those who do not know what the X-Factor is, it is Simon Cowell's UK version of American Idol. For those who do not know what American Idol is, sorry I cant help you unk: So there is a debate ongoing at the moment that the show is being ran in a sick manor. They are delibrately putting rubbish acts through to see the judges instead of filtering them out. These people then think they are good, get in front of the judges and are laughed at by thousands in a live audience and millions on tv. Some of these acts are people who are clearly quite ill, damaged or have dangerous delusions that could set them off down a bad path. Last night for example, someone who thought Michael Jackson was talking to him came on, he was awful couldn't sing, but everyone got to laugh at him. A week ago they showed a woman who pretty much screamed, she acted as if she was possessed, the judges put her through, God only knows why, anyone with a brain knew she couldn't sick and was awful. A few days later doctors decided based on her performance that she wasn't mentally well enough to actually go through. I think it is sick that X Factor are exploiting people just to get a laugh.
