X-Factor 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," the "Impossible" singer tweeted. "Has anyone from X-Factor ever played it?"
As Gigwise 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.'"
Its sad that I'll probably never play Glastonbury because of the format I was discovered.. Has anyone from xfactor ever played it?
