Who does he think he is?
I liked him on the show but he already thinks he is in some great position to judge talent, god help him if he ever has huge success. If anything he should be supportive of people on the show, having only gone through it himself last year.

Oh James stop being a Hypocrite. You made me cringe (and practically vomit) through his whole series so you have nothing on earth to complain about. Honestly he is a mess.

Wait is his single out this week? Oooh that's your answer...idiot.

It perplexes the mind. The thing I remember about him most was that he was always crouched over to pretend to show passion, but it looked like he was having a panic attack on stage. They called it passion, I called it bad acting.

Maybe this is a ploy to get people to vote for KR

Had the misfortune of seeing him live at a couple of Festivals this Summer.
He was truly awful, croaking his way through abysmal new material.

I agree with him.

I really don't like Kingsland Road.

He's just giving his opinion, exactly the same as 100s of us do on internet forums every day.

And yet when people give their opinion on James Arthur, he has a big wobbly about it and slags them off. That's the main issue here.

His apology was odd...

"Yes I respect Kingsland avenue, 1d, the wanted, Union j etc same as I respect anyone putting themselves out there.."

"Sorry if it's not necessarily my thing musically or if I think some of it is imposed on us.. Sorry if that means I have a massive head lol"

"What ya gunna do about it? Shoot me? Make my day.. Someone who practically brought me up/ a dear relative of mine just died!"

"There's more f**king important things in life than boybands I'm afraid"

"F**k off"

Someone should tell him that twitter is not his friend and sometimes it's best to maintain a dignified silence.

Two major differences:-

1) James Arthur is a former X-Factor contestant/winner

2) When he expresses his opinion, it ends up in the media (whether by accident or design) or if it's a tweet, it soon becomes retweeted all over the place and discussed on other sites/forums

I like James as a musician but the more he talks about how credible other artists are, it makes me dislike him.

Why is he so bothered about Kingsland Road and One Direction anyway, like literally they're not even the same music so they're not really his competition, I don't get how he seemms to have suddenly changed his mind over One Direction now...awkward.

Good Lord he just digs a deeper whole. Eloquence is not his strong point. Honestly as much as I sympathise with his grief, that is no reason for acting like an arse. I am sorry but honestly he is a stupid, silly little boy. Petulant much James?

One day, James Arthur will slag off Jake Bugg, or Jake Bugg will slag off James Arthur, and God will simply shake his head and destroy planet Earth, because mankind will have reached its lowest possible nadir.

He is asked his opinion on things in interview, and gives an honest answer. I quite like the fact he doesnt come across as hellishly over media trained. I may not always agree with him (indeed his constant swearing at birmingham fusion festival - a family festival, was embarrassing), but better him than Leona 'amazing' Lewis.
