Will Young has spoken out today confirming what everybody else already knew. The X Factor contestants mime their group song on the Sunday night live results show.
But he has questioned why they are not criticised for miming, and why they’re even aloud to mime it in the first place? The Pop Idol winner made his remarks in response to the controversy surrounding Cheryl Cole’s decision to partly-mime her performance of Fight For This Love on The X Factor last month.
He said: “I think there’s a very mixed reaction to different people whether they mime or sing live. Some people get away with it – I’m not entirely convinced the contestants sing live on the Sunday shows in the group thing, but people don’t comment on that.“
He added: “I think Cheryl can do no wrong in my eyes. So it’s just different people for different things. But Cheryl did a great performance. I don’t think it really matters. It’s showbiz.“
What do you think fans? Should The X Factor contestants be allowed to mime their group song on Sunday nights?
