Shure has still got The X Factor
Whatever your opinion is of The X Factor, it is still the most watched program on UK Television and last weekends final is reported to have pulled in over 21 million viewers on Saturday and 17 million on Sunday. Matt Cardle was eventually crowned the winner and at the end of his winning song, threw his Shure UR2/BETA87 wireless microphone on the ground in excitement when he was mobbed by the other contestants. Obviously, because of Shure’s durability it worked perfectly when he picked it up again, only for him to then accidently smack it in Dannii Minogues face. It’s still working!!
Shure has always been the choice for all the contestants on The X Factor, and this year was no exception. The UR2/BETA87, part of the flagship UHF-R series was the mic used by everyone, and we even got to see the very limited addition SUPER 55-BCR vintage style mic which was used by Mary and Rebecca on occasions over the past 10 weeks. There are only 100 of the SUPER 55-BCR for sale in the uk and is very distinctive with it’s striking black and red design.
