I have to be honest and say that I DO NOT watch the X-factor, one of the few in the UK on a Saturday night.......
So I didn't see the 'final' but heard about it and the winner......

My curiosity though peaked when I heard about the dance routines of two of the professional 'Acts' namely Christina Aguilera and Rihanna..... The media, (Daily Mail et al) are getting their knickers in a twist over the routines namely because of the number of complaints of the clothing and suggestive dancing at a time in the evening where there would be a Significant Child Viewing audience....

I'm curious of the general feeling / opinion of members to this........ Was it too much ? ,, Is it an erosion of standards and morals? Does it not really matter ? Was it Simon Cowell imposing his 'might' on society ? Is it a complete distraction to all the other ill's in society ???

Being a red-blooded male then the Blonde in the pictures (attached link) is certainly ''interesting'' but I would have expected to buy a magazine or do some dodgy internet search if i wanted images like that !!??

Thoughts ?

More and more of this is quickly creeping into the mainstream. I remember when you had to be 18 to pick up a Playboy with this kind of stuff in it. Now Playboy is as explicit as Hustler. What the deuce?

edit: Not that I'm a prude, mind you...

I dont like to think of myself as some kind of prude. But I found the whole thing a little OTT, very in your face and very sexually charged. This all before the watershed too. It's not good, this is meant to be a family show not an introduction into pornograohy. There is a moral decay in this country, with the media being to blame for much of it.

omg, just re read my post, I'm starting to sound like a daily mail reader

Any 14 year old boy with a laptop can turn his bedroom into a hardcore porno masturbation factory, the X-Factor is not contributing to this.

However I do think that our young people in society are being overexposed to sexuality form a young age but unfortunately there isn’t really much we can do about it. the X-Factor final is only a small part of a much bigger problem, so big its negligible. It might just be that I am used to seeing this on TV but I didn’t find it similar to soft-core porn. I really wouldn’t be taking the world of the daily mail on this.

That should not be shown at any time that has children viewing, and it should have a Adults Only disclaimer at the start.

A 14 year old with his laptop in his bedroom is quite a different story then the same 14 year old sitting with his parents, when this comes on tv. I don't know about you, but even as an adult (at 27) I wouldn't feel comfortable watching that with my parents.

Oh so would I, I was just pointing out that there is worse material out there for people to get all red in the cheeks over. I mean facial cheeks just to be clear in the context of this thread.

Every X-Factor episode is pornography.

Pornography - obscene writings, drawings, photographs, or the like, esp. those having little or no artistic merit.


I didn't see the episode you're referring to though.

OFF WITH THEIR HEADS I SAY !!

Apart from the fact that this show is a total blasphemy to the real gods of music in this world owe
THE WAR ON SOC = Sexualisation Of Children has reached another level.

The X-fixfactor hollowheads have gone one step too far.
This abomination and dumbing down of our children is already too much to put up with with fake voting and fixing at the top of the agenda.

But trying to manipulate kids into thinking:

"it's really cool to jump around on stage in knickers and bras over sexually gesticulating like your performing at a cheap red-light district, dark sleazy underground illegally run Soho nightclub for an audience of primitive and sick and sexually deprived perverts"

THEY ARE WRONG
They should be ashamed of themselves and owe the public an apology before they finally disappear into a black hole where they belong!

I am musician and producer and I am and
I DON'T WANT MY DAUGHTER who loves and actively performs, sings and dances too,
GROWING UP BEING MANIPULATED INTO BELIEVING IT IS "COOL OR "IN" TO PERFORM UNDER THIS KIND OF SCANDALOUS SEX SCENARIO. AND I@m NOT ALONE IN FEELING THIS WAY!!

I AM LIVID AND FURIOUS AT THESE DEGENERATED TV FIX-FACTOR IDIOTS WHO FEEL THEY HAVE TO SUDDENLY AND WITHOUT WARNING SIMPLY SHOCK TINY AND FRAGILE MINDS AND SOULS WITH OBVIOUSLY BLATANT PORNOGRAPHIC CHOREOGRAPHY DURING A PROGRAM THAT IS SUPPOSED TO CREATE IDOLS AND ROLE MODELS FOR OUR YOUTH.=CHILDREN IN MOST CASES, YOUNG ONES AT THAT!

BY THE WAY I AM NOT PRUDE IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER AND VERY OPEN TO HAVING LOTS OF SAUCY FUN BUT....CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE EXPOSED TO THIS "POINT"...GAME OVER AND NO EXCUSES FROM ANYBODY.

THIS IS SICK


THEY SHOULD CALL THE PROGRAM SEX -FACTOR AND BROADCAST AFTER WATERSHED IF THEY WANT TO USE THAT KIND OF CONTENT WITHOUT A DECENT AND FAIR WARNING IN ADVANCE
UNACCEPTABLE
OFF WITH THEIR HEADS

I was well p**sed of when i saw it. I have a young daughter who loves x factor, and i watched it with her. Christina augilara's routine, well ok, it was in a burlesque style routine which i suppose does have some 'art' to it, but it was WAY TOO MUCH for a family prime time tv show. My daughter giggled when rihanna came on and did her open legged dance routine, and said ' mummy thats so rude' These dance routine should have been toned way down, simon cowell should remember its not the music stars who have the power its the consumers watching the tv programme. Incidentally, i thought id point out the other thing that happened saturday night, (british members may know about it). The boy band Take That were due to perform their new single 'kidz' but it was pulled at the the last moment because simon cowell wouldnt allow them to perform the dance routine. It apparantly involved the x factor dancers dressed as police in riot gear holding shields. He thought it was inappropriate considering the student protests that are currently taking place. Pity he didnt think rihanna and christinas routine were also inappropriate.
Also Rebecca should have won. Conspiracy.

I felt really p'd off to cos my daughter "was" areal big fan too ut now even she says it's all a fix and that final show was disgusting and anyway

Let's be VERY HONEST
Simon Cowell only has money as does Louie Walsh and Cheryl well
1.
Cheryl Cole CANNOT sing and should not be in the position to JUDGE other really talented young individuals in front of MILLIONS because she does NOT QUALIFY for the job!
ALL her vocals are recorded with a software tool called "AUTOTUNE"
(for people who sing OUT OF TUNE!) and she NEVER SINGS 100% LIVE without a baking track to cover and uses AutoTune because she CANNOT!
I and other professional producers CAN HEAR IT! CLEARLY!
I DARE Cheryl Cole to sing UNPLUGGED.
2.
If you look closely into Cheryl Coles' eyes when judging REALLY talented Female singers who CAN SING, you will see PURE ENVY and that is why she puts them OUT!
3.
I am a very experienced (for 25 Yrs) International music producer, singer writer and composer working with many TOP Stars and unknowns and I'm VERY disappointed and deeply concerned about the negative impact unqualified "JUDGES" like Cheryl Cole have on young talented individuals who are more talented than herself!
X-Factor is a BIG FIX

Couldnt agree with you more. Danni and Cheryl are in no position to make these calls. Cheryl mimed when she did her single on the show, ( i also find her music dull and uninspiring) Danni has had about 3 hit singles, if that, and your right, Cheryl is envious of female singers who can sing. I knew something was rotten in the state of Denmark when Gamu Ngengu was booted off, that little girl really had something. Theres a part of me that wishes now id got my daughter into the BBC strictly dancing thing, it think it might have a little more integrity.
