X-Factor this year as always has been shrouded in rumours and one of them has me intrigued.
This rumour is about the live shows including an impartial judge. But does the show really need one and who should it be??
An impartial judge would stop all the uproar that usually follows when the judges decide to go to deadlock. The judges always vote to save their own act so what is the actual point!! We need somebody who is looking at the quality of the act rather than their connection to them in the competition. Enter the impartial judge.
Critiques from an impartial judge may actually be constructive. Why would a judge help out a contestant that isn’t in their group. It doesn’t make sense, these judges are competitive. They don’t want to give their greatest competition the edge. Having some unbiased points that help an act brought into the judging panel at the live shows may stop the constant ‘blaming the song’ complaints every year. Blaming the song you just sung gives no proper direction for what they should do better. They already have to change songs next week?? WHAT ELSE!!

This show needs an odd number of judges to really shake up the show. Who is my choice?? Tulisa, DUH!! She is fresh from a high profile court case and needs to be on our screens pronto. Having somebody who is used to the live shows is essential to getting the most out of a judge. We don’t have time for a rookie getting used to the format, Tulisa would jump straight in. Plus we need somebody to get Louis more involved on the show, we haven’t heard enough from him this season with the cameras on permanent Cheryl watch.
With Tulisa at Louis’ judges houses this year I am doubting she will be involved any further but there is definitely a need for an impartial judge.
