The insider also alleges the voting order is predetermined “well ahead of time” and audience votes don’t count for anything. “It’s a complete gimmick,” they reveal.
“They don’t actually count [the votes]. That’s why they never bother to show the percentage of votes.”
Last month, host Osher Günsberg confessed to news.com.au that none of the reveals are recorded in front of audiences, despite what viewers of the Channel Ten show are made to believe through editing.
“There were maybe only eight people in the room when it happened. No one who wasn't supposed to be there was there,” he said.
“In the control room, they basically hit record on the machines and walked out. We didn't even have a photographer!
“Every entrance and exit was guarded by security… we protected it really well and I'm really proud of how we did,” he said.
Furthermore, fans of the show are convinced that the celebrities aren’t performing their songs live.
“Every single one of those performers was lip-syncing. There is no way they could sing so clearly from underneath that big heavy mask,” said one Twitter user.
