Let’s Talk: Why are Singing Competitons Dead?

With the meteoric rise of social media over the past years with the likes of TikTok and Instagram, and with X Factor not coming back for a successive year after initial falls in rating from past years come up trump, why are singing competitions dead?

It may be down to the fact that social media has allowed anyone to become famous and the distinction between celebrity and the general public is more becoming a fusion of the two! Or it may be down to the fact that these singing competitions like the X Factor do nothing but segregate us from such a corrupt aspect of the music industry, and is ludicrous Saturday night TV. Whatever the reason, let me know your thoughts.

You make some good points, Alex, but I’m not sure singing competition shows are completely dead, at least in the U.S. Long-running TV show “The Voice” is still alive, and even “American Idol” returned for a 19th season, which just ended in May.
