ok my honest thoughts here, and i dont generally give them that often as i shy away from it all, but as you asked here goes..
why change something if its not broken............... why does it seem to similar to gbt??
i dont like the live audience!!
and the great performers are already great...... i like to see it when they are shy and to watch them grow, but they have soooo much confidence and are already great performers, i realise i sound ridiculous, but its how i feel
and as for the sob stories....do we really need to hear them before we judge there performances??
