    a couple of the guys in What About Tonight can sing , but many of them havent sung more than 3 0r 4 words solo in the whole bootcamp and auditions. While loads of really talented singers were sent home. The group category was the least competitive by a long shot, which is why they had to make more groups to make the category bigger. What About Tonight - were only good in the first audition only, good energy and stage presence but the vocals were as flat as pancakes , especially that blonde kid ( flat as anything) screaming teenage girls can get people through , even when their not talented , and heaps of amazing singers dont get through some people in the group are carried all the way by other members and still go through because its a group . Not fair really What about Tonight should never have got through as only a couple of them can sing and not the whole group

    Most disappointed with judges, Guy and Rohan who I thought were talented apparently have gone towards the media hype and not with contestants talent, Mel B ummm you were with Spice Girls (band) for a few years but what have you done lately? Certainly not singing as a soloist so how can you judge someone else! This season is ridiculous and not fair on true talented artists who due to rejection may never sing again

    Bella should not have got thru - not fair on other contestants - this is all fixed from the start - all my colleagueswhere i work in sydney have decided not to watch any more - why should she have got through when others got sent home - they already know who is going through and who they can make money out -
