4Sure the second act to leave X Factor 2006

Filed under: 2006 Contestants, 4Sure

Louis Walsh was left with just two acts tonight after Simon Cowell used his casting vote to send 4Sure home and save Robert.

Simon had earlier commented that although he “liked you guys [4Sure]”, he “didn’t like the arrangement” and that they sounded “like a group of 80 year olds”, “wet, a bit ploddy and old-fashioned”.

4Sure commented afterwards that Rod Stewart definitely wasn’t their style of music, but “still wanted to show that we could adapt and prove that there is a different side to us, but, we did have worries about the song choice. We just didn’t feel that it was one of Rod Stewart’s most popular tracks and that may have gone against us.”


  1. Is Rod Stewart appearing in panto this year? He appeared to be dressed as Buttons..

  3. 4Sure weren’t the worst but aren’t RnB harmony groups just as tired as boybands?
    Why is Leona rated so highly, she screeched her way through her song?

  6. For Sure weren’t the worst, but nowhere near how good Robert was. the one who should be out is Kerry. she was SO BORING and ORDINARY! the sympathy card shouldn’t get her so far. I’m sick of hearing about Nikkita’s mum too. shemisses her, why do we have to hear about it and Kerry’s saga every time. this is about having the X-factor, not about the saddest sob story!
    IMO, the best are Ben, Robert, Ashley and Leona.

  8. This whole thing is a fix. Why the hell Louis bigging up other acts I will never know. It’s a real joke. It was so disgraceful to see him do exactly the same thing as he did last year. However, this time he did it on the sly. Why does he but different looking bands through and not faciltate there needs? Can he only work with fresh face British boys.

  9. I was gobsmacked - no way should 4sure or Robert been in the bottom 2. Those who voted for the MacDonald Bros must be tone deaf - they were awful and I’m a fellow Scots!! My heart goes out to 4sure and hope they make it by themselves.

  10. 4Sure weren’t my least favourite in the 1st week, that honour went to Eton Road (who did so much better this week), however 4Sure this week were a complete mess and my other half & I both thought they were the worst performance this week. Voila - They’re gone!

    Mrs O has had 2 of her acts in the bottom 2 so far so I reckon Dionne or Robert will be out on Saturday. BUT …….. you just never know what will happen. :)
