Daniel Second Act to Leave X Factor 2007

This week was themed ‘film week’, and the previous bookies favourite Daniel was the second act to be booted off the X Factor.
Daniel Second Act to Leave X Factor 2007
Three judges voted to remove Daniel from the show, with only Louis, Daniel’s mentor, voting to keep him on.

For the second week running Alisha was also in the bottom two, but survived the judges vote.


  1. Daniel was kicked off for 2 reasons:- He was asked to sing a song which was dreadful, like asking Mick Jagger to sing Yellow River!!

    The other reason was that the panel did not want to upset Sharon again and watch her act like a childish little girl. Does it not say it all that Alisha has been in the bottom 2 for 2 weeks. It would be interesting to know who actually did receive the lowest vote.

  2. I totally agree! I think neither Daniel or Alisha actually deserved to be in the bottom 2 because they are both really talented and deserved to go on to the final!! However, I think Daniel should have been saved because he has an amazing voice and the song choice was the only reason he didn’t recieve the votes so it was unfair, plus it’s Alisha’s second week in the bottom 2 so she shouldn’t have got another chance.

    Can’t believe they voted Daniel out!

  3. I agree with Dawn. Aisha should have gone this week. She has come in the last two for tw0 weeks and unfortunately deserves to because just as Simon says we do not really know who she is. Her singing does not come up to the standard that will sell records especiallywhen you look at the previous winner Miss Lewis. There is not comparison at all. She will be gone by next week surely, no matter if Sharon is going to be upset. In my view Sharon did not choose the best singers out the ones that she had to chose from. There again the standard this year has not been anything to write home about.

  4. i agree with dawn, as ive said in a previous post, how many chances is alisha going to get to prove herself. its way too personal with the judges. it should all be public vote thats why we ring up and pay 35p a call. however i dont think alisha was the worst act last night.

  5. I think that if it’s true (which I think it is) that simon and Danni didn’t want to upset Sharon then they should have voted toctically and let the act with the lowest public vote go – That way I’m sure tha Daniel would still be with the show. What is wrong with Louis anyway? all those songs to choose from and he picked that one! Daniel would have sounded great singin ‘Everything I do’ by Brian Adams (Theme from Robin Hood prince of theives Don’t you think??
    Good luck to you Daniel – I thought you were great!!

  6. I agree and if they had have let it go to the public vote i think Alisha would have gone and Simon would not have wanted Sharon down to one act left so soon, but i think it should be less about the judges and more about honesty come on we can all see through it!

  7. yh omg they should have kept daniel on,its obvious the public dosent like alesha(although she has a great voice).i thought daniel could have gone really far.and i think they should reveile the voting scores to the public

  8. The decision to boot out Daniel was a farce. When Danni was asked to chose the camera clearly showed Simon speaking to Danni, probably telling her which way to vote. At least we didnt see Sharons petulance again. Her act, Alisha, was clearly the worst and should have gone. She should have gone last week as well. She has NO TALENT, at least not for singing.

  9. Whatever the reason for the song choice, Daniel didn’t perform it well. It was weak and there’s no escaping it unfortunately, as I would have liked to see him in the top 5 at least.

  11. I like daniel. Simon was to harsh saying “Fire Louis.” Get rid of riddian. He’s AWFUL! I hate him so much. he’s so full of himself. who cares that he sounds good, so does everyone else!

  12. Daniel should not have been voted off. Couldnt believe Emily was the first to be saved she should have been there with Alisha. Sharons choices were terrible

  13. Daniel just had the wrong song and its nice 2 read its not just me who thinks Alisha should have gone home, i think Niki will win this year, Rhydian is great but we all know he can make it on hes own, and can any1 tell me how Emily got this far!.

  14. Daniel had to go instead of Alisha otherwise can you imagine the Osbourne strop? She would have fled the country.I cannot see what she brings to the show anyway. Get Sharon off. Would like to see Rhydian win cos he is in a different league to the rest. the judges simply cannot handle technically good singers cos they do not know anything about the technical aspects of music. Dont waste your money voting, its all set up for the groups of rejects to make the final.

  15. Let’s get real here. Calling this bunch of no hopers great singers is wide of the mark. Alisha should have gone but, let’s be honest here, Daniel was flat (like others) and the voters put him in the bottom two for a reason. What will be the excuse given by the 14 year old this week for a poor performance? 3 hours a day schooling eating into her rehearsal time again?
    Only one person is out of “karaoke quality” here and that is someone who will have a career in musicals rather than the charts

  16. Alisha was great, she shouldn’t have been in the bottom 2, she has a better voice than most acts on the show.

  17. alisha to win, she is fab!!! has a great voice. Only because she has no soppy story to tell, therefore no simphathy vote, she has been in the bottom two. alisha is by far the best singer of the show
