‘The X Factor UK’ Brings Back Eliminated Singer After Contestant Drops Out
The thing that sets The X Factor UK apart from many of the other reality talent competition shows we cover is the fact that it is highly unpredictable. You never know what’s going to happen or what the judges and X Factor tsar Simon Cowell have up their sleeves. Sam Black, who had previously been eliminated after boot camp, received an unexpected call after fan favorite Anthony Russell dropped out of the competition.
Anthony charmed both the judges and the fans with his raspy voice and unconventional performance style. Unfortunately, he had to leave the competition after being chosen to go to the judge’s houses. It is unclear exactly what happened. He cited personal reasons and it must have been pretty serious for him to give up his big break. That left an opening which Sam Black is happy to fill. So, it is Sam that is going to the judge’s house.
I can’t imagine the pressure that these singers are under and it is strange and unfair that they have to pause their whole lives to go on the show. Their families and jobs have to fend for themselves on the off chance they might win. And what if they don’t? Then what?
