It seems the population’s younger residents are at last favouring the beauty of the natural world over the wailing of sloppy singers. Planet Earth II’s greatest ratings to this point were for the Mountains centric second episode, which had 1.8 million young viewers compared to The X Factor’s 1.4 million that week.
Planet Earth II presenter, David Attenborough said that he presumes the audience is only, “reconnecting with a planet whose beauty is blemished and whose health is failing, starting to comprehend that their future and that of the planet are inextricably linked.”
What I think
Yes, we may get a laugh while watching some of the singers humiliate themselves, but The X Factor isn’t so important that we have to watch it every single day.
Personally, I feel the time has finally come when our young generation is getting involved in the world’s problems.
Being a teenager myself, I believe that we must lead the future. That’s why we, young people, should focus more on the situations that happen around the world, than on people who want to live with fame and money only.
The X Factor has been around since 2004. For a 17 year old that’s a pretty old, unfashionable and boring format. I’ve stopped watching it because I’d rather be involved in environmental issues than watch attention seeking amateurs make fools out of themselves.
The young generation should focus more on things that we should value in our lives.
