Kaiser Chiefs don't rate TV talent shows 'X Factor' and 'The Voice' because they are suspicious about where the contestants come from
Kaiser Chiefs don't rate TV talent shows 'X Factor' and 'The Voice'.
The 'Ruby' band don't believe in reality TV shows anymore, because they are suspicious of where the contestants come from and whether they have been scouted to audition.
Drummer Nick Hodgson exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "The thing is, they have gotten a bit suspect now. It's like, 'Hang on a minute - these people haven't even just turned up to auditions!' So you sort of stop believing them."
Despite being wary of talent shows, Nick admitted he would consider sitting in a judge's chair on such programmes alongside stars such as Simon Cowell, will.i.am, Tulisa Contostavlos and Gary Barlow if he was offered enough money.
He said: "It depends what the money was like. Seriously, if they want to pay me £1 million to sit there and s**g everyone off then I'd do it."
Bandmate Nick 'Peanut' Baines then quipped: "He does it for free most days."
Kaiser Chiefs support Xbox and international children's charity Right To Play, in a Guinness World Record attempt over Xbox LIVE at 6pm BST on 16th June to raise much needed funds for the charity.
