TALENT SHOW, The X Factor, decided to cancel its Saturday public vote due to technical issues with sound during Saturday night’s broadcast.
Viewers complained that the sound during last night’s X Factor was distorted during segments featuring the judges and some of the performances.
Some claimed the audio distortion sounded like “Daleks” from the BBC sci-fi classic Dr. Who.
The X Factor was not broadcast live and was pre-recorded on Saturday afternoon.
ITV have since apologised and have moved the public vote to Sunday’s show, tonight at 8.30pm UK time, instead.
It is thought to be the first time technical issues of this scale have affected the talent show in its 15-year history and marks the first time a Saturday vote has been cancelled.
Viewers started to complain about sound issues during the performance of Benidorm’s Danny Tetley and it is reported that the technical hitch continued through fellow contestant Anthony Russell’s song.
A message reading “we are sorry for the temporary interference in sound” appeared during Danny’s performance of the Queen hit ‘Who wants to live forever’.
Danny didn’t seem to be phased by the distortion to his voice and thanked fans on social media: “Thank you very much for all the love tonight see you again tomorrow”.
Danny also retweeted a video with his performance without sound interference, courtesy of The X Factor Slovakia, with a message: ‘Performance with no sound interference! Please share so everyone can see it.’
