Which X Factor judge has “virtually zero contact” with their acts?
X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne “barely sees [the] contestants” that she is supposed to be mentoring on the show.
It may come as no surprise considering Sharon has on numerous occasions forgotten her own acts’ names, but it has now been revealed that the mentor has little to no contact with her contestants.
According to The Daily Star, Mrs O has “virtually zero contact” with Saara Aalto and Honey G despite the show’s claim that it is the judges who are responsible for looking after the singers in their category and in charge of selecting their song choices.
The newspaper reported that neither of the contestants in the Overs category even saw their mentor until Saturday’s rehearsals last week.
A source revealed: “Sharon barely sees her contestants. She has a team to look after them while she flies back to Los Angeles every week.”
Well, at least the singers aren’t completely abandoned then!
This isn’t the first time Sharon has received criticism on the show. The 64-year-old has been already been accused of being drunk live on air. She has forgotten the name of the song Saara was singing, despite it being the most well-known and iconic tune in Titanic, and has also drawn a blank on Saara’s name and nationality in the past.
Yet, she must be doing something right as she is the only judge left with two acts remaining in her category.
Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh are now all in the danger zone and if either Matt Terry, Emily Middlemas or 5 After Midnight leave next week, one of the judges will be officially out of the running.
Will Sharon’s good luck continue?
X Factor continues Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
