A new season of X Factor UK has just kicked off and, as expected, there was enough of drama to go around. Just check out the video above to see what we mean.
Zoe Alexander earns her living as a Pink tribute artist but she insists she's out to make a name for herself as Zoe, to distance herself from the pop star.
If that's really her aim, she's not about to see it come true thanks to X Factor: she was rejected during auditions and caused quite a scene, storming off stage shouting obscenities and trashing camera equipment.
Even though the moment was pretty intense, it failed to register with audiences as producers would have certainly liked it to: the Daily Mail
reports that the new season marks the worst opening ever for the show, way behind the competition.
“The launch of the ninth series of the talent show recorded its worst audience figures for six years. An average of just 8.1 million tuned in to ITV1 for the first episode on Saturday night – down more than 2 million on last year’s debut, which attracted 10.5 million,” says the tab.
“It was the worst start to an X Factor series since 2006 and a dramatic contrast to 2010, when a record 11.1 million viewers switched on for the first episode,” the same publication adds.
To make matters even worse, Zoe left the show feeling terribly cheated: she claimed producers and the judges disqualified her after deliberately setting her up by telling her which song to sing.
