The Malcolm X Factor

Dannii Minogue, showbiz’s Lauren Booth to Kylie Minogue’s Cherie Blair, is looking over auditions for the TV talent show.

“One girl, a Muslim, was shaking,” says Daniiiii. “We said, ‘What’s wrong?’ she said, ‘My parents don’t know I’m here. If they find out they’ll throw me out and never speak to me again.”

Is this because she is a Muslim, Dani? Does anyone know what percentage of X Factor contestants are Muslim? Is this girl the first, the rebel who leads the way? And be assured that a contestant’s religious beliefs are relevant.

It cannot be long before the creators of reality TV talent shows create a Malcolm X Factor for Muslims, featuring a veiled Dannnniiiii in a skin-tight, peek-a-boo PVC burka?

That for later. For now, Danii is compassionate.

“We said, ‘Well, is that what you want?’ she said it’s my dream to be a singer. I’ve got to do it even if it means I’ll never speak to them.”

Without a thought, Dannnni, says: “So we said, ‘OK, let’s go ahead with the audition.”
What’s a parent’s judgement compared to the views and opinions of Simon Cowell?

And we can look forward to seeing the wannabe singer on our screens. Says a show “insider”: “She did have talent but don’t expect to see her in the final stages as her voice wasn’t strong enough.”

Even if she has spoken up for an entire religion…
