X Factor 2012: Another group, Tae Blondo, claim to have been set up by producers as a laughing stock!
A girl group who appeared on last Saturday’s X Factor have come out and claimed that they were told by bosses of the hit ITV reality talent show what to wear, and what to sing, just so they could be slammed by guest judge, Mel B, and publicly humiliated in the name of entertainment!
The Group, Tae Blondo, who Mel B was particularly nasty about during their audition, claim they were told to sing Guns n Roses’ Sweet Child O’ Mine – and to squeeze into matching hot pants in the style of the American flag, just so Scary Spice could slam the performance as dated.
Speaking to the Sun newspaper, Beth Wilson said:
“Mel told us ‘You look like you belong in a Playboy mansion’ and said the song was dated,” Beth told The Sun. “Yet they were the two things they knew we would do
“The producers also asked us to talk about Mel B, then edited it to look as if we were scared.
“They’ve obviously done it to make Mel B live up to her reputation as Scary Spice. It was clearly a set up.”
However, an X Factor spokesperson has insisted this is not the case: “Contestants make their own decisions about what to wear and what to sing,” an official mouth commented.
