X Factor UK : Shayne Ward Accuses Simon Cowell Of ‘Erasing History’

He may have won its second season, but  Shayne Ward‘s career since the X Factor has been anything but a walk in the park.

Indeed, after exhausting its machine to spawn one #1 single and an LP to just chart just as high, recent years have seen the ‘Breathless’ singer’s career take a rude turn for the worst- with his 2011 single ‘Obsession‘ peaking at #97 on the UK Singles Chart.

Now, in response to a new commercial advertising ‘Factor’s ninth season, he has hit out creator Simon Cowell for ‘erasing’  what he calls its ‘history’.

Find out what he means below…

In the above ad, a number of the series’ brightest alumni, Alexandra Burke, One Direction and Little Mix  and JLS can be seen reminiscing on their experience on the show.

However, despite winning his season, Ward was not asked to shoot for the campaign while non-winners Olly Murs and One Direction and JLS were.

On the matter, Ward claimed:

Cowell is yet to respond.

      Omg. I do too. It’s like breaking up with a guy and then have him say “But Why?, I still love you”.

  3. Wacky O July 30, 2012

    Sadly you don’t have an relevance to the show any more! Don’t worry they will all flop eventually!

    Oh so that’s how the likes of a Leona Lewis & 1 Direction came to be the annoying pains in my eardrums that they have been! This is why they are trying to CHASE TRUE TALENT OUT OF THE MUSIC INDUTRY so these cut our cardboard characters can have a space. LOL


    I’m glad this guy (I’ve never heard of) spoke out. I say the same crap with loser Clay Atkins vs AI winner Rubin Studard (sp?).

    Why is this guy complaining? He was given 3 albums and he screwed up his third by botching up one of the most iconic alternative rock songs. He has no one to blame but himself. Please save us from your drama Mr “I only won X Factor because I’m good looking”, people are so over you. NEXT…

    • MusicB July 30, 2012

  6. Black kupid July 30, 2012

    • Pop Royalty ( F*** Yo Fav) July 30, 2012

      cuz he is not a sell-out maybe and make music that may have some meaning ? not like JLS !

  7. NewF*YorkBabe. July 30, 2012

    That really sucks. I feel bad, man.
    Simon is known for putting the dollar first, but look at what’s he’s got to show for it. X-Factor. Ahaha. Leona Lewis is the only actual ‘star’ to come off the show … and yet, she’s Leona Lewis (beautiful voice, but not star presence). Simon’s starting to make a career on burning bridges (beep beep Justin Timberlake & Madonna). Why wouldn’t he stand proud behind his acts, and proud behind his show.

    • Pop Royalty ( F*** Yo Fav) July 30, 2012

      this !

    Why do you think you weren’t included Shayne? Unfortunately, people are more likely to remember Steve Brookstein. Sorry, but that’s show biz. Let’s promote a show and highlight our “failures” – are you for real?

  9. Just Google Kelsnetwork and see what happens! July 30, 2012

    just waiting to see the ratings..
