X Factor Musical Closes After 2 Months
13
It has been announced that "I Can't Sing," a musical based on TV talent show the X Factor, will close early after just two months.

AsĀ NME reports, the West End musical, which was co-written by comedian Harry Hill, will see its final performance at the London Palladium on Saturday, May 10th. While the show was a spoof of the program, which reportedly portrayed Simon Cowell as "a money-obsessed, shiny-toothed control freak in high-waisted trousers," it was co-produced by Cowell's Syco Entertainment.

Nigel Hall of Syco has issued the following statement regarding the closure:

"Alongside Stage Entertainment we'd like to thank the cast and crew who have worked so hard on this show.

"To everyone at Really Useful Theatres and the ever supportive staff at the London Palladium, and everyone involved in 'I Can't Sing!' I'd like to say a huge thanks and the very best of luck with their next venture."

    While the show was a spoof of the program, which reportedly portrayed Simon Cowell as "a money-obsessed, shiny-toothed control freak in high-waisted trousers," You mean he's not?

    They should just cancel the real show as well. Everything about the X factor and shows just like it or garbage.

    I know - who on earth is interested in watching untalented idiots ripping off other peoples material? Incidentally Kerry, how come the riff in the new Slayer song sounds a lot like Metallica's Damage Inc.?

    Thank god, the numbers have spoken that we don't give as much of a shit about these stupid programs that they think we do.

    The fact that Simon Cowell "helped" make a musical that makes fun of him does support a little the money obsessed implication

    Cowell's involvement is just a sign that this was really just an ego-trip for him.
