We may not like to admit it, but nothing makes great television like a feud between judges.
We saw it on Australian Idol, we’ve seen it on The Voice and we’re seeing it now The X-Factor with the very carefully constructed and crafted feud between Iggy Azalea and Mel B.
Obviously, there’s no ratings gold for networks if two successful, high-profile women just get on well.
But it appears home-grown talent and fellow The X-Factor judge Guy Sebastian has blown the lid on the alleged fued between Mel B and Azalea, telling The Advertiser that Mel B isn’t the only one who struggles with Azalea.
In fact, they all do.
“Yeah we clash. We’re just not similar people at all and I definitely have to bite my tongue,” Sebastian admitted.
“I’ve said a lot of things in my head,” he added.
More than that, Sebastian lamented the fact it seems Azalea is on his case more than the other judges.
“She’s at me all the time and I don’t know what it is because she doesn’t go after Mel and Adam. I think she thinks I’m an easy target.”
Despite Sebastian’s sense that Azalea is on his case more than the other judges, he is not the only one coming out swinging about Azalea’s role on the show.
Fellow X Factor judge Adam Lambert has blasted Azalea’s professionalism more than once in the last week in the public domain Guy Sebastian.
