X Factor vs The Voice – will it ever end? Probably not. Christina Aguilera is the latest mentor from the NBC talent show to bash her rival talent competition as she thinks the X Factor is purely based on bashing other people’s dreams on becoming a star, before adding that most of it is just done to amuse people so that the ratings stay high each week.

The Voice on the other hand is the complete opposite, the singer says. She explains that the show finds genuine talent without mocking someone by their looks and appearance — Christina is fascinated by the genius idea of not being able to see a contestant when they audition. If she likes the way someone is singing, she has the option to turn around which will then result to the contestant choosing whether or not they want that particular person to mentor them through the competition.

“We’re not there [on The Voice] to bash talent,” Metro quotes her as saying. “We’re not here to tear people down just for ratings or just for fun or just to make ourselves look good. The whole concept of the blind auditions is truly genius. There are no stereotypes that you can judge someone on, other than their genuine talent and raw vocal skill.”

Aguilera announced last month that she will be leaving The Voice for its forthcoming season to focus on her music career, while she also plans to go on tour to support her new album, Lotus. “Since this year NBC and The Voice have decided to tape back-to-back seasons, requiring a full-year commitment, it is important for me to take season four off, allowing me to support my music that my fans have been waiting for,” she said in a statement last month.

    Are you kidding me? This woman who has a reputation for being a HUGE b*itch- now, I understand people talk crap and may be jealous of her. She’s beautiful and talented! But when you have legions of other famous people saying they had negative experiences with her, there’s gotta be some kinda base to it. She has a horrible reputation for being snobby and she is saying this? LOL give me a break. She makes up for not bashing on her show, in real life.

    Also, it’s THE X FACTOR- you gotta have the right personality, the Factor that makes you worth the $5million. NOT just a VOICE. Isn’t that obvious in the title of the show? It’s clearly BASED on personalities….. AND talent. Not just raw vocal skills. I don’t see any bashing. I see sweet people, talented people and douches. I doubt editing make Tara Simon and Cece Frey seem as bad as they have proven themselves to be, however talented.

      I agree with both of your points — they are two completely different shows.
