Thanks for the replies so far.
You guys have already nailed it on the head. It's exploitation and manipulation of easily swayed people. The whole thing has no substance in music,
and the producers and publishers are soaking up the profits from a greedy, manipulative and sterile business venture. Not only is it affecting those
who do wish to make something of themselves, but they are single handedly diluting an already troubled industry, by preventing anyone else from
reaching the top spot, by literally flooding the charts with garbage and then dropping in psychological hints and clever media manipulation and
allowing humility and sympathy to cast the deciding vote.
Sadly, Cowell is smug enough to keep doing this, although I genuinely cannot think of anything that he's been responsible for that I could ever class
as musical, he's nothing more than a manipulative leech.
