The new X Factor is going to be an interesting show. One of the judges, Gary Barlow is reportedly hoping to be realistic with this year’s batch of X Factor finalists and is open their eyes for the positive and negative aspects of today’s music industry.
The star has experienced the highs and lows of fame as part of his popular man band Take That. The group have ruled the charts, won awards and performed on sell out tours, but when they split in the mid nineties, Barlow experienced rejection and the press turned on him so viciously, that he retreated from public life entirely.
In saying that, many music stars believe that The X Factor IS the darker side of the business, so perhaps, by the time the singers reach the live shows, they’ll be well aware of the hard time they are about to face!
