Music Lovers Baffled As To Why Olly Murs ‘Still A Thing’


MUSIC fans across the British Isles said they were unsure why Olly Murs is ‘still a thing’, it has been revealed today.

In an online poll by Music Lovers Magazine, a staggering 98% of of participants chose the ‘no idea’ option when asked why the English singer-songwriter was still making it to the charts.

“He must be buying the albums himself,” suggested long-time music fanatic Darren Jacobs. “Seriously though, why is he even still on television? Why? His face annoys me so much that I sometimes contemplate grating my eyeballs with a cheese grater. He needs to be stopped before someone gets hurt!”

Olly Murs first rose to fame after finishing as the runner-up in the sixth series of The X Factor in 2009, following on with his debut single “Please Don’t Let Me Go”, which debuted at number one on the UK Singles Charts.

Five years later, the 30-year-old is still managing to secure a career in music and television, despite public opinion.

“Maybe it’s some sort of sick joke,” posed one commentator. “Hopefully the punchline will come soon.”

After an extended search for an actual Olly Murs fan, WWN asked 78-year-old Anna Perkins what it was exactly that attracts her to the Essex boy.

“He’s such a cheeky Chappy,” said the self-confessed fanatic, and distant relative. “I just love those little Teddy Boy hats he wears. And those boyish features are to die for. He’s like a young Norman Wisdom.”

Murs released a new album called Never Been Better last week, much to disgust of music lovers nationwide.
