Louis Tomlinson Calls Out 'The Voice' for Bad-Mouthing 'X Factor'

Louis Tomlinson is sticking up for the show that made him a star!

The 23-year-old One Direction singer took to Twitter to vent his frustrations at The Voice UK for seemingly calling out The X Factor.

“Is bad mouthing The X Factor the only way The Voice knows how to promo their show ? #everyyear,” he tweeted.

He may be referring to Rita Ora‘s recent comments about why she chose to be on The Voice.

“The respect levels for this show are really high,” she told The Daily Star. “It is well received and respected by other artists. That is why I joined, because I really respected the format and how it musically connected to the contestants. I don’t know how X Factor works, I was only there as a guest judge for a day. But I watched The Voice a lot, I respected how it came across on TV and I love the freedom we get as coaches to do what we want.”

    Like I’ve said, the Voice has NEVER created a star so I don’t understand what all this preening about ‘being more respected’ is about. How can a show be respected if it never delivers on its promise?

      It’s never been promised, though. And at least The Voice didn’t get cancelled in the US, where it matters. The X Factor got cancelled here and Simon had to go back to the Uk. Its priority is to make a TV show, first off. :) Cassadee has 1,000,000> singles sold (Platinum), which is good for a country artist. And she’s releasing a new album. She’s better than before she did the show.

        Not a fan of either show,The Voice/X Factor, and as to which is better or worse is subjectively a matter of preference,opinion and that’s your prerogative, but firstly they’re both reality TV song contest shows with a priority of being just that ‘a TV show’.
        Of course, The Voice has promised to create a star or at least boost a music/singing hopeful musical career, why else then do people choose to contest in the show if not to benefit their music career aspirations? It truly doesn’t matter where a show is aired, the USA is not end all and be all, there are plenty of TV song contests worldwide but it all comes down to delivering on a promise to make a genuine success story of their contestants long after the show has finished airing. The X Factor (no better/worse than other TV song contests like The Voice) in the least has delivered success stories like Leona Lewis, One Direction, Olly Murs, Ella Henderson, JLS, Little Mix who have managed to achieve music chart success including those in the US.
        I do agree with Louis because from The Voice 1st series 4yrs back they (the show,it’s judges) have drag down the X Factor time and time again to publicize/promote The Voice at the slightest chance.
