Hope becomes 5-piece after Sise Ejected

Filed under: 2007 Contestants, Hope

As seems to now be traditional, the naming of the 12 final contestants last night didn’t pass without controversy.

Shortly after being told they were through to the live stages, the members of Hope were told that one of their number, Sise, was ineligible for the competition. Sise was convicted earlier this year of assaulting a worker at her local McDonalds, but failed to complete her community service. X Factor producers feared the police could potentially come to arrest her during the live shows, and as such had no option but to expel her from the series.

Hope was formed as a ‘best-of-the-rest’ group with solo singers from the girls 14-24 category, and the girls were unanimous last night in their decision to continue without Sise.

  1. I think she deserved to be kicked off the show nobody has the right to attack people and not do their time, she seems like a bully to me.

  2. Well Im glad to see that it appears to be a decision taken for practical reasons (ie fear of her being arrested “live”) rather than a moral judgement because of her past. The fact that she hadnt completed her sentence requirements gave them no option.

    Initially I despaired, because I feel todays society is very unforgiving very quick to bring up a persons past. If a person has done their punishment it should be left at that, and let them move on. But obviously she hadnt, so fair enough.

  3. For the attention of Sharon Osbourne.

    You do not have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning after choosing the three contestants you favoured. Kimberly has the worst vocal tone I have ever heard and to send that young girl home instead of her was the most ridiculous choice ever. Come on, why??? And why do you need someone else to help you with your choice? It’s obvious from the choices you made that you are lacking in the tone department.

  4. I totally disagree with Tom…sorry mate…I think Kimberly has a fabulous voice her tone is lovely and she has personality aswell…I think out of the younger ones she would conquer her nerves and give a strong performance…I think Simon was a complete moron not to put Ghostt through, vocally they were the most talented. As for Sise…as they say in good old Belfast ’slap it up ya!’ she should have done her time…very bossy and too much ego to be a team player…not a great singer either… :)

  5. I THINK THAT FROM THE START SISI PROOVED HERSELF TO BE ARROGANT AND A BULLY. YOU ONLY HAVE TO WATCH HER BEHAVIOUR AT BOOT CAMP.THE WAY SHE ACTED WHEN TOLD SHE WAS BEING BOOTED OFF SHOWS SHE THOUGHT THAT NOONE WOULD FIND OUT ABOUT HER PAST!!
    I DONT KNOW THE DETAILS ABOUT HER ATTACK ON AN INOCENT PERSON IN MCD’S BUT CLEARLY SHE HAS A HOT TEMPER AND THINKS SHE IS ABOVE EVERYONE.IF SHE HAD STAYED IN WOULD WE HAVE ANOTHER B**** LIKE CHERYL TWEEDY SETTING AN EXAMPLE TO OUR KIDS????

  6. i totally agree sise is a bully and should be mature enough to serve her punishment as awarded by the courts. lets all hope this is the last ever series of x factor. and we can all put this horrible money making programme out of our lives for good. and spend our money on great bands and musicians that dont need reality tv to earn that 30 seconds of fame.

  8. love x factor nice to see good come from it with singers who would not normally be found and good that it publically humiliates law breakers and bullies who think they can get away with their actions so good on both accounts I think

  9. This is a complete joke. Hope is a very hopeless group and the name it self sucks!Futureproof had a better shot.Danny was right but Simon obviously has a hidden agenda
