KT Tunstall Hates Simon Cowell's Talent Shows


KT Tunstall


The self-proclaimed real artist said his singing shows like 'The X Factor' is actually pure entertainment which clogs artists from getting chart positions.

Scottish singer KT Tunstall despises the way Simon Cowell has "clogged up" the music industry with TV talent show contestants - insisting it prevents other musicians from hitting the charts. The music mogul has created a TV phenomenon with his string of talent hunts on both sides of the Atlantic, with "American Idol", "The X Factor" and "America's Got Talent" all producing several recording artists every year.

But although Tunstall admits the shows make great TV, she is adamant they are having a negative impact on new artists. She tells Britain's Daily Mail, "I hate what Simon Cowell has done to the music industry because he's clogged it up with all these people and it's stopping real artists getting deals."

" 'The X Factor' isn't about music, it's about entertainment, and in that regard it's remarkable, because it brings families together in front of the television. Personally, I'd rather have stayed on the dole (welfare) than audition for a show like that, but I would perform on it because I want millions of people to hear my music. It's something I have thought long and hard about."

    Kudos to Tunstall for telling it how it is. These shows are a joke and are slowly suffocating the real music industry. Today's generation has no clue what real, good musoc is thanks to the likes of Cowell and these idiotic shows.
