No singing reality show for super-hit singer Adele
London: Singer Adele refused to participate in singing reality show like `The X Factor` to get a career break because she feared she would make a fool of herself on live television.
The 23-year-old knew she wanted to be an entertainer from the age of 12 but rejected the idea of getting her start through a reality series.
"We`d be watching `The X Factor`, and my family would tell me I should go on. But then you`d see a parent on the show saying, `My child is the next Mariah (Carey),` and the kid would be rubbish. So I`d look at them and think, you just want me to be embarrassed for a good laugh`," contactmusic.com quoted Adele as saying.
