X Factor UK Headlines for 04/14/13

Union J to reveal their debut single soon! BGT crushes The Voice UK.

Popjustice: The Union J single. It’s good.
The X Factor often fails to deliver fully-formed popstars, but what it sometimes does rather well is push new pop acts to the brink of something big. At the point when acts reach the pop precipice – when The X Factor ends just before Christmas – the act’s destiny changes course, and lies in the hands of whichever Sony label picks them up.

Sometimes the labels get it right and sometimes they get it wrong, but this knowledge that the story hasn’t even really started yet is why it’s often so hard to support a potentially brilliant X Factor finalist – or condemn a potentially bad one. The singers you see on Saturday night TV, singing songs for a Saturday night TV audience, just aren’t finished yet. (Although we still love this Beyoncé cover.)

It’s strife on Murs
OLLY MURS has revealed that he could still have stayed on the X Factor even if he had gone to his twin brother’s wedding.

The lads haven’t been on speaking terms since Olly skipped brother Ben’s nuptials to perform in the semi-finals of the 2009 show. That decision tore the family apart.

But the Thinking Of Me singer, who finished runner-up to JOE McELDERRY in the sixth series of X Factor, now reckons that he could have done both.

Olly said: “I wouldn’t have been eliminated from the show by going to it but I would have missed a full day of rehearsals.

“It was the semi-finals. It was shame but you have to move forward.”
