Boy George has suggested he was offered a role as a judge on 'The X Factor' and although he is a fan of the show he doesn't have
Boy George has hinted he turned down a judging role on 'The X Factor'.
The flamboyant pop star is a big fan of the pop star search show and watches every week, but he could have been on the panel critiquing the acts.
Speaking about his favourite acts on the programme, he said: "I think the young girl Lauren Platt is amazing and obviously the Italian guy, Andrea Faustini, is very good. But you have to remember it's a TV show so there is only ever going to be one winner and I just think a lot of the acts this year, like Chloe Jasmine, I think she's great, she is such a natural star, but all the songs they gave her were just wrong and that's why she went. She should be singing jazz, she's jazz singer. They should get me in there and I'd show them what to do. I think a lot of the singers have been really badly advised because at the end of the day it is about TV it's not about music necessarily."
When asked if he'd like to be a judge on the series, the 53-year-old singer replied: "How do you know that I already haven't been asked?"
He added to BANG Showbiz: "No I'm not telling you. I mean at the moment I'm a bit too busy for that but we'll see, if it's still going. Maybe I'll do it on another type of TV show but I do find 'The X Factor' entertaining."
The Culture Club star admits he can't resist taking to Twitter whenever 'X Factor' is on to air his grievances and give praise where it's due.
He said: "I suppose like everyone else, if I'm in and I'm watching it I get carried away with the decisions people make and I'm like,' 'Oh come on!' So I get on Twitter."
