I sort of half agree but also... did anybody who applied after the second or third series pay any attention to the show? The music industry is what it is and it's brutal and not for the faint heart. There's a whole bunch of level-headed people who were clearly crap and needed a reality check. I don't feel sorry for them. The people who were talented enough to get noticed but just put through the ringer from the production team for the sake of TV I feel sort of bad for... to a point. It's the people who had clear and visible issues with their mental health and/or their ability to comprehend the situation who were obviously put through to laugh at I always felt uncomfortable about. I really wish that had been dialled back.
