Right before his vacation, Sam performed on X Factor UK and voiced his opinion on the show.

“I feel that X Factor is perfect for singers who sing, and that’s all they want to do. They don’t care what they sing, they just love singing. I always say to people: ‘If you’re a singer, go for it.’ It’s an amazing platform. But if you’re not, and you’re a songwriter, I think it’s actually quite damaging for you to go on there,” Sam shared to the Mirror.

He added, “You’re singing other people’s music, so then when you release your own stuff, people might not like it.”
