2012 winner James Arthur
posted a brief rant against Glastonbury
festival, calling this year's performers mediocre and complaining about not getting a chance to rock one of the stages."It's sad that I'll probably never play Glastonbury because of the format I was discovered,"
" singer tweeted. "Has anyone from X-Factor ever played it?"
reports, James had also added a second tweet, saying, "Especially sad when you see how mediocre some of these acts are live! #VeryBitter,"
only to delete it afterwards.
Following a series of media reports, the vocalist decided to clarify things a bit, tweeting, "Me saying some of the acts at Glasto sounded mediocre live has now turned into 'James thinks he's better than all the acts that played.'"
