‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Snubs Adele’s Top Hits?
Adele will not be pleased. Her songs are reportedly banned by “Britain’s Got Talent” because they are overused. Judges reportedly got tired of listening to contestants one after another singing the Grammy award-winning singer’s hits.Advertisement
According to The Daily Star, the producers were no longer happy to hear the same piece from their contestants so they did something about this. “The producers were sick of hearing the same songs over and over again,” an unnamed source reportedly revealed over the weekend. “They had to start telling people to sing material from another artist.”
Producers of the singing reality show, whose auditions for the new season have just started, allegedly told the singing hopefuls to not bother trying their luck anymore if they will only be performing Adele’s songs. Several contestants were disappointed upon learning of the directive. “Quite a few weren’t happy,” an insider alleged. “A lot of them had only prepared one song properly so it completely threw them.”
The source reportedly continued by saying, “They were told to sing something else, which didn’t go down well with everyone.” It was further pointed out that “producers didn’t really have a choice because it was getting so repetitive and ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ is all about variety.”
On the other hand, The Age dished that Adele and her songs are keeping Australia’s music industry afloat. It was reported that the 27-year-old singer and songwriter’s third project, “25,” helped the country rake in a five percent growth rate.
Based on the records gathered by the news site, the singer’s newest album became the top-selling album in 2015, making it the “main driver of physical sales.” It was learned that “25” was able to remain on the second spot in the ARIA album charts as it achieved platinum sales eight times more than the required number of copies sold.
