X Factor Judge Wants Ban on Adele and Lady Gaga Songs
Take That’s Gary Barlow is the latest judge to join ‘The X Factor,’ and he has wasted no time in voicing his opinion about the choice of pieces performed by the contestants. So sick of them, in fact, that he actually confronted pop star Adele over the matter.
Barlow went on to say that he confronted Adele personally about ‘X Factor’ contestants covering her songs.
“She was in Wembley and I said to her, ‘I’ve got to be honest, I’m really sick of your album because it’s all that’s been played at X Factor,’” Barlow recalled. “We’re sick of Adele.”
“Lady Gaga,” he continued. “We’re really sick of those two.”
Barlow admitted that he didn’t bother to watch his televised debut of the show last week, which draw nearly 13M viewers. Instead, he was enjoying an evening out with his wife at a friend’s birthday celebration.
During an interview with Chris Moyles of Radio 1, Barlow pointed out that he was trying to shake the show loose of Louis Walsh’s poor choice of contestants.
“They can’t sing,” Barlow said. “Louis would put anyone through. They wouldn’t have gotten through under me. There’s a little change and twist on the boot camp this year.”
