Britain’s Got Talent: Simon Cowell addresses ‘Fix’ backlash

Simon Cowell claimed so Britain’s Got Talent is “fixed” amid controversy surrounding one of this year’s nominees.

Loren Allred is one of the acts appearing on the long-running talent show this season and won Amanda Holden’s Golden Buzzer during the audition round.

While many viewers were impressed by her singing, others expressed outrage when they discovered who Allred is – the voice behind the popular track “Never Enough” from the 2017 musical film The greatest showman.

Some fans of Britain’s Got Talent have suggested that Allred is too established to be a fair candidate on the series. However, Cowell offered a defense of her inclusion in the semifinals.

“I know you’ve been held up a bit in the media — ‘It’s a fix because you were on another show,'” Cowell said.

“That’s the whole point of shows like this, you give someone another chance.”

Alesha Dixon also stated that Allred has “as much right” to compete as anyone else.

The singer herself has addressed the controversy, saying in a statement: “Even though I’ve spent many years in the music industry, people don’t know who I am. Over the years I’ve fought for my chance to be known and make it.”

Britain’s Got Talent continues tonight (May 3rd) at 8pm on ITV.
