It's kind of a shame. I used to enjoy AI for seasons 1 through like 4 and that is long gone now. The Voice I acutally find irritating. The X-Factor, while not a show I watched because I'm too busy watching other terrible shows , was at least a fresh take on the singing competition. I like the inclusion of groups. I think that Fifth Harmony came from the show and my understanding was a group of girls that were not chosen for singles. I can't help but bring that back to how Danity Kane came together on Making the Band, who I do like, and I just think it makes sense to find the next big pop star that is just as likely to be group. Oh well. I hear CBS already ordered some kind of Nigel Barker singing competition. So there will be another.
