The new season of “The X Factor” is gearing up to premiere later this summer, and based on some of the early intel we’re receiving, there is one unfortunate trend from past seasons that is going to resurface: The frequent appearance of Adele music throughout the audition process.
In commenting on this sudden trend further in a new interview with the Daily Star, show host Dermot O’Leary had the following to say about it:
“A lot of people do Adele and you want to take them aside and go: ‘What are you doing? Have you lost your mind?'”
We understand in theory why so many people would want to do Adele, given that she is one of the most-popular recording artists in quite some time and all of her songs show off her range and also her vulnerability. Yet, if everyone does the songs, they start to lose some of their meaning. It’s why today we cringe when people sing “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston or “And I Am Telling You I Am Not Going” from “Dreamgirls.” They may be the two songs done more than any other in singing-show history, maybe other than a few things by Stevie Wonder.
Even with Adele songs being overdone, there will probably be a few who sing them on the coming season who end up going far. We’ll just have to see precisely who some of these singers are, and if they manage to impress with some other songs, as well.
