To think reality music shows should quit with the sympathy vote attempts

Just watching The Voice- so far we've had:-

My brother is in a successful band and I'm not

And

I'm only on here because my sister, who has cancer, said I should do it

What relevance is any of that other than to go for the sympathy vote?

To be fair, it's not working as they've both been outed smile

I don't think Danny-from-mcfly's sister should have been eligible. If she wanted introductions to agents etc I'm sure he'd have helped her. She's taken a place from someone with zero connections.

Blimey, now we've got 'Adele's my cousin'

What has that got to do with anything?

Yes yes yes it's so annoying.

Gave up on them all a while ago for that reason.

Yanbu. There's one on it atm whose sympathy vote story is a load of shit so I can't take the rest of the sob stories seriously anymore.

I like those. I play bingo with them. There are so many drinking games you can play watching reality tv.

Tell me more hotpanda- Saturday nights might never be the same again!

The winner of the voice is usually never heard of after the hoo-ha on many many saturday nights. I dont care now and I wont care later.

Yanbu. The set up serenade of Kylie by the one with the sob story about being homeless when he was 19 made me feel sick. The guy has a beautiful voice but the constant reference to being homeless and living in east ln

Dam phone.

As I was saying; and living in east London in a 'woh is me' tone just undermines his obvious talent. Although the one who is basically just jealous of her own brother is worse. It's basically sibling rivalry .
