Robbie Williams has slammed the X Factor claiming it's not really a singing competition and the 'boring' acts will 'go nowhere'. Is his Sunday night appearance in question?

Speaking to ShortList magazine this month, Robbie claimed The X Factor wasn’t a real singing contest and suggested this year’s acts were too boring.

“Somebody will come on and do an audition and sing their arse off, but they can’t project and they’re boring and they’ll go nowhere."

Is this another statement aimed at annoying Gary Barlow?
The Rock DJ singer enraged Barlow when he took to Twitter on Saturday night to back Rylan Clark, despite Gary's dislike for him.

Writing in his personal blog on his website Robbie reiterated his feelings: “TEAM RYLAN ALL THE WAY, VOTE RYLAN X”

Gary Barlow was the first to blast Rylan's club classics performance on Saturday. “My problem is that for every week you’re here another talented contestant will be going home."

“You always say you’re a dance act, you should have been the best performer tonight but you were the worst.”

Speaking on Xtra Factor about Robbie’s antics, Gary quipped: “It was going so well between the two of us, 20 years knowing each other. We did an album together and it’s all over in one tweet. In five letters it’s all over!”

Is it really all over for Bob and Gaz?

This weekend Robbie is booked to appear on the X Factor to perform his new single, Candy. After his cutting comments and rift with Barlow, will he even be there?
