X Factor don’t deny that all successful acts were invited by producers

X Factor don’t deny that all successful acts were invited by producers
It’s long been known that X Factor scouts and producers invite acts to appear on the show, and recently some figures floated around the media, mainly that 2/3 of all finalists were invites, and the Daily Star’s claim that every successful act was invited. 
 
Well, NME asked X Factor to comment and… they gave the worst denial ever. In fact it’s basically agreeing. Here we go: “It’s no secret, like many other TV talent shows, we approach people to make them aware of the auditions… Anyone who applies goes through the exact same process and no one is ever guaranteed that they will go through to the next stage. All auditions are judged on the performance on the day.”
 
So the whole ‘come along and audition’ thing is pointless because the show has already invited all the best acts, although we use best loosely.
