Sam Smith Says the ‘X-Factor’ is “Damaging” for Singers


Chart topping singer, says the X-Factor' is “damaging” for singers

Sam Smith revealed that he would never consider auditioning for TV shows like  because they can be “damaging” for songwriters.

Sam Smith recently spoke with Mirror, and said it “was a very conscious decision for me not to . It is for , and it isn't for people.” The “Stay With Me” singer-songwriter added that X Factor was “perfect for singers who sing, and that's all they want to do,” but that ultimately “[y]ou're other people's songs. People are judging you on other people's music.”

Sam Smith described how he knew X Factor and similar shows were not for him as soon as he started writing his own music. “I want people judging me on my voice and my songs – that's what's important to me,” adding: “I always say to people: ‘If you're a singer, go for it.' It's an amazing platform. But if you're not, and you're a songwriter, I think it's actually quite damaging for you to go on there.”
