The only people who buy records en masse are people who like Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Emile Sande, Coldplay, Mumford and sons, Jake Bugg

There isnt really anything wrong with what these artists do but theyre grown for success, as nice and inoffensive as possible. There is a massive audience for nice people making nice music, but anything or anyone who is too nice is immediately annoying and irritating to others.

If you dont like it you arent wrong, but other people will

As luck would have it, that Naughty Boy track with him on it went to no. 1 a week before the event, so suddenly it felt like an accidental coup. Until he started singing...

I have genuinely never experienced such a boring performance. I don't even understand it, because I've seen his stage performances on TV since and they're not boring, they're fine and he sings well, but at the time I couldn't help but think 'what on Earth are you even trying to do?' Nobody who saw that performance would have believed that he was a professional singer, would ever be given a record deal, was no. 1 in the charts at the time. Perhaps this is why he emerged singing over other people's productions, because the label had to work out a way to actually package him in as a presentable product and come up with songs and arrangements that actually made his performances bearable (clue: not just a cello).

PS Taylor Swift is quality.

i quite like him. If you don't, don't listen to him i suppose. He's just an above average musician, making the most of what he has. Good voice, decent writing ability and decent musicality. At least he's an actual musician though and not someone that sings other peoples songs

Also, think you're doing a massive disservice to both Timberlake and Styles

He sings a genre of music that I find boring, nothing more to it.

Ginger James Blunt.

It's not music that any self-respecting adult should be gravitating towards. Inoffensive drivel for my 13 year old daughter, but not for us.
The main thing is, and has been touched on by a number here, is that it is so incredibly dull.

Quite. More for the V-festival crowd.

I said on another thread but those 3 days at Wembley would be awful and full of the worst type of people on the planet.

It will just be 80000 people telling each other they're having the best day of their lives but they need 200 shit photos on their camera phones to validate their lives. When asked what the highlight of the their day was they'll go through the phone to find a funny selfie while queuing for the loo. Get to **** you dullards.

Just can't figure out why there are no protest singers any more . Why is there no modern day Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger or Judy Collins??
But then what do I know - maybe Ed Sheeran's next album is called "Southern Railway Bastards"...

Exactly! Why do people get so annoyed about these things? I'm not a big fan but see the appeal. He's making money and I'm. Sure he doesn't care too much about what people say, anyone popular and pop gets crap no matter what. He's not the best pop artist but there is not much out there. Timberlake does things best in my opinion as far as pop goes, does everything very well.

Will be interesting to see what Sheeran does with his next album, may try and prove some of the naysayers wrong and go for something more for the music snobs.

Judging by the people I know who go there, yes. It's only got a bit more 'edge' than V, Glasto etc.

Too much pap in pop today

x factor crap


need another punk or similar underground scene to blast it all away

but well done to Ed tho for his success and hard work, not my thing but anyway he must have worked his socks off

I'm more offended by music snobs, than I am by musicians who are inoffensive!

I liked his song 'Sing'. Seems a talented and likeable guy, and it's good he's got more to him than the 1D pretty-boy types.

I expect there are protest singers out there if people want to make the effort to look for them, but they are bound to be less on the mainstream platforms.
