Brand Cowell’s new talent show is ‘absolutely appalling’

Viewers weren’t impressed with Simon Cowell’s latest singing competition show, Walk The Line, with many calling it “boring”.

Former Take That star Gary Barlow, award-winning performer Alesha Dixon, comedy legend Dawn French and chart-topping superstar Craig David are on the judging panel along with hosting Maya Jama.

The show sees musical acts – be they soloists, duos or groups – take the stage to perform in front of the nation and the judges.

But to win the prize money, talent alone is not enough.

Competitors will need nerves of steel to determine whether to cash in or physically walk the line and risk it all to stay in the competition.

The act that ends at the top of the leaderboard then progresses to the following night’s show, where they will face off against a new lineup of performers.

The longer they can stay in the competition, the bigger the prize pool.

Taking to Twitter, many shared their thoughts – and the comparisons to what was one of the biggest reality shows to come out of the UK, The X Factor, was one of the main points.

One called the show ‘terrifying’ as they slammed the judges for being ‘too scared to be honest’

‘Dawn French is too nice, the singers can’t really sing and the production ALWAYS tries the gory story angle. This type of “talent” show had its day more than ten years ago. Bury him already,” they added.

Another said: ‘I thought Boris Johnson’s address to the nation was going to be the worst thing on TV tonight… Then I saw 10 minutes of #WalkTheLine.’

‘Watched 10 minutes of absolutely disastrous #WalkTheLine TV! Such a boring format, done to death,’ a third tweeted.
