X Factor: Girl group claim producers set them up
All the latest news and gossip from The X Factor...
Girl Group Tae Blondo claim that X Factor producers 'set them up' to be laughed at in their teeny tacky hotpants.
The trio told The Sun that bosses told them what to wear and forced them to sing 1987 Guns ’N’ Roses track Sweet Child O’ Mine so that Mel B could slate them. The Spice Girl branded them as 'dated' and their outfits as 'Playboy mansion' during their audition on Saturday night.
The girls also claim that footage of them chatting about Mel B was edited to make it appear that they were scared of her.
Lead singer Beth Wilson, told the newspaper that the staff “kept asking” if they would perform in their hotpants. “Mel told us ‘You look like you belong in a Playboy mansion’ and said the song was dated. Yet they were the two things they knew we would do. The producers also asked us to talk about Mel B, then edited it to look as if we were scared."
“They’ve obviously done it to make Mel B live up to her reputation as Scary Spice. It was clearly a set up.”
An X Factor spokeswoman said: “Contestants make their own decisions about what to wear and what to sing.”
Pink tribute act Zoe Alexander was slammed on Saturday night's show for choosing a Pink song. She also claimed that producers told her what to sing.

X FACTOR IS SO OBVIOUSLY FIXED.......STOP! ......HAVE YOU GOT ANOTHER SONG... SAME OLD LINES EVERY TIME.
SIMON COWEL KNOWS WHO IS GOING TO WIN FROM THE OFFSET. ONE DIRECTION COULD NOT HARMONIZE SO THEY DROWNED THEM OUT WITH BACKGROUND HARMONIES TO MAKE THEM SOUND OK . REAL SINGERS DON'T GET THIS OPPORTUNITY.
The whole show is a set up by the producers. Those who cannot sing are deliberately paraded out to make fools of themselves for our entertainment. Simon Cowell always knows who is coming on and how good they are before they arrive on stage. Thats why he keeps looking down at his notes. They may not fix the voting, but they do their best to sway public opinion towrds or against certain contestants. Can't believe anyone still believes otherwise.
I am getting to like the show less and less just like the rest of the viewers if the current viewing figures are to be believed
I was never fussy on mel b anyway She is only trying to do a Simon Cowell and not doing a good job at it
As for Simon Cowell why am i thinking rats and sinking ship.
At this stage although it's a shame it seem's to be fixed, it is not costing you money.
Once the phone-in starts, that's when the public that phone in pay for the show and there £1000,000 wages and that is the only reason for the phone-in, because as it has already been stated the powers that be have already decided the out come, the answer DO NOT PHONE IN and let's see how long the show last's.
I am one of the biggest fans of X Factor, but I have to say the producers this year have gone beyond the pail.
It is quite clear, not from what Zoe said, but from her facial and physical reactions, that she had been set up. Her dad was the biggest clue as well. You could see in both their eyes what had happened. She had done what was asked, thinking that she would get the nod through, but because of the judges reaction to what Zoe gave them was adverse. I think the producers knew what would happen.
There in no excuse for what Zoe did but it was the fault of what the producers told he to do. They can claim innocence as much as they like but they are quite obviously lying. If it was a court scenario they would be convicted.
Producers stop telling the contestants what to do you are killing the show. As for bringing the police into this sordid affair you got what you deserved that was a big bite on the backside. The public are not stupid.
I cannot comment on tomorrow nights show as I have not seen it, but it isstarting to look like a pattern of lying from the producers.
