Sharon Corr Slams The X Factor

We reckon it’s safe to say that Sharon Corr is NOT a fan of The X Factor.

The musician, who was a mentor on The Voice of Ireland, has slammed Simon Cowell’s talent show for giving aspiring singers the wrong impression.


Sharon Corr was a judge on The Voice of Ireland.

During an interview with Magic Radio, she said: “I think reality shows are dying out.

“The reason I did The Voice was because I rated it. I felt like it was the antidote to The X Factor which I think is appalling.”

The Corrs star added: “On The X Factor you’d almost think that these judges could put these bands together and somehow they have this amazing foresight and they know how to make people superstars.

“They don’t. Superstars are born. They work at it. They work at their job. They make music. They sing brilliantly. They play brilliantly. You don’t make that.”
