Sharon Osbourne says there is "no more talent" to find on reality TV shows like 'The X Factor'
Sharon Osbourne says "there is no more talent" to find on 'The X Factor'.
The 61-year-old music manager quit her judging role on the singing competition after guiding Sam Bailey to victory last year, and she claims talent shows have become an oversaturated market, leaving little undiscovered talent out there.
Sharon told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I feel it has been overfished. There is no more talent out there. Any serious musician is not going to go on a show."
The outspoken star previously insisted her reality TV judging days were behind her after serving on the panel of 'The X Factor' for five years - including four series from 2004 to 2007 and again last year - and 'America's Got Talent'.
Sharon blasted the number of sob stories seen on "contrived", "boring" reality shows.
She said: "If one more person stands up in front of me and sings ... I've had it with people singing at me. I have had it with people singing on TV.
"And they've all got something wrong - they have either got one lung, one kidney, or they've all got somebody sick in the hospital."
