X Factor, which of the judges could we give four yeses to?


By John

There is a new talent show on Sky, the title is X Factor. Originally invented to discover singers in possession of the “quid” that can project them into the musical panorama, now in its edition no. 17, aware that potential talents are now increasingly rare and dispersed in the thousand thousand programs of the genre, X Factor is looking for the most argumentative, quarrelsome and self-centered juror. The competition, therefore, is more behind the jury’s desk, which is showing all its explosive potential.
At the moment, the one who appears out of competition is Fedez. His attitude, indifferent and bored in the first episode, unusually composed and moderately critical in the second, arouses suspicion. He will be annoyed by the presence of Morgan, who, a few weeks ago, during a show in Selinunte, told the spectators «You deserve Fedez», or has the repetitiveness of the program actually weakened it? It could also be a Moretti-style tactic like “Will you notice me more if I come and stay away or if I don’t come at all?”, which would bring him back into the game with a more sophisticated calculation.
Then of course, there is Morgan and here, we understand that Marco Castoldi’s (re)call into service did nothing but multiply his ego exponentially. Now, given that we have always admired the musical culture of the former Bluvertigo, in this edition he is more overflowing than usual and does not limit himself to showing off his knowledge, but would like to be the sole and supreme judge.
It is mainly the one who pays the price Ambra Angiolini, with whom tension had already risen in the first two episodes. A fairly evident level of conflict that the editing of the episode only partially managed to keep under control. If Morgan doesn’t miss an opportunity to silence Ambra about his musical abilities, in the last episode he also added himself Dargen D’Amico, who, however, was promptly asphalted given that Angiolini responded in kind. Ambra, more aware of her empathic abilities after her past experience, is not available to play only the part of the pink quota, but takes the stage like her colleagues. As for Dargen D’Amico, he focuses on humor and fooling around and aims to get noticed also for his outfit that is more bizarre than imaginative.
At this point it is understood that those who pass from the stage, despite their naivety in revealing which juror’s opinion they care most about, by antagonizing the others, have the possibility of moving on to the next phase if they are unquestionably good or if they enter into the dynamics of spite among the jurors. In short, if this continues, it will be better to select singers with a written multiple choice test.
