Simon says top 24 were selected for personality, not talent:
"Simon Cowell admits that the judges and producers selected people who will make good TV rather than make good records. “When we made the decisions about who was going through, we tried to mix it up as much as possible so that there would be people who the audience would genuinely be interested in,” he said."What do we learn from this statement?
1. Not only Judges, but Producers also decide who goes through to the next round.
2. Contestants are picked based on who makes the best TV.
3. Reality TV is not real.
