  2. when watching ex factor i want to judge the contestants
    by their talent. not by the fact that they turn on the tears it’s not fair to get votes on who feels sorry for you.

  3. I have never heard so many songs being ruined on xfactor before especially the one sang by Rhydian tonight he should have not got past the auditions

  4. i like beverly but what is with the sob story, first she acts like she works in a school for underpriveledged kids, now she was aboandoned as a child. she might have been but what the hell has that got to do with a talent competition!!
    louis really started to do my head in, hes so pathetic and petty. hes only slating same diff every week because of last year with the mac brothers and simons bad comments. sad.

  5. Rhydian is walking it! I don’t easily turn into a blubbering mess – that was amazing! I agree with Simon, the best version ever!

  6. I’m a great fan of Niki but the song choice wasn’t right for her, she fell flat tonight. Just didn’t pull it off ….shame. :-/

    Beverley was great! :-)

  7. Rhydian: WHAT a PERFORMANCE!! fantastic, they might as well finish the series cause the winner is this man. I really disliked him in the beginning, his arrogance was too much however you can not doubt his talent and he is realising you cannot be so arrogant and i feel is toning it down. However You Raise me up WAS QUITE SIMPLY EXCEPTIONAL. I do feel Nikki will give him a run for his money however.

  8. i really think that this year the x-factor is ok, about the contestants everyone is really good but the group hope is not worth the effort i dont think they are good enough to even be watched on t.v no offence they cant sing

  11. Rhydian moved me to tears this week. How can anyone think he ruined this song is beyond me. But Andy was the right choice. And Beverley’s song was a bad choice for her voice which is why she was probably in the bottom two. It’s a man’s/tenor’s song, and women always struggle singing those. Alisha, and Hope were better, but as Dannii said, Hope were flat in the beginning, and there were some awful stray notes in their performance.

    As for the judges, is Simon really trying to rub Louis up the wrong way? What was the staging about for Same Difference? Pantomime at it’s best? Poor SD are being used as a weapon between these two idiots.

  12. how come same diffrence is still innit?

    Comment by Dolly — Sunday, 11 November, 2007 @ 11:21

  13. I agree with the majority of right thinking people on here – Rhyddian is streets ahead of the competition. Dannii should give him a Josh Groban song to get his teeth into, “You Are Loved (Don’t Give Up)” would suit him perfectly.

  14. I believe Andy leaving the X factor was the right choice.He sang that song like he wanted to go home.No much personality expression, no strenght and projection in his voice.He’s qiute too soft and laid back and should be singing reggea-calypso kind da smooth songs.At least Nikki sang the Chicago song like it was her own and tried to give it her best.It would have been a dreadful mistake if Beverly was exited from the X factor nistead of Andy..

  15. It would be great to see Rhydian sing Celine Dion’s ‘My heart will go on’ from Titanic.And also any one of the christmas songs. He’s well talented.

  16. I’m glad that Andy misery is gone. I love Same Difference they are making a difference. Nice, fresh and jolly. You’ve got lot of talent. You really can win!

  17. I vote Same Difference to win the Eurovision Song Contest!!!!

    Rhydian to win!

  18. How on earth do both of simons groups stay there – theyare both terrible – Andy should not have got sent home – he was by far one of the best- The ones left- dont stand a hope getting anywhere – they will all be a one minute wonder in this music scene as it is now .

  19. Definately Rhyddian to win this series , a very talented man . I think he would make a great job of either “The show must go on” by Queen or “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica both very powerful and expressive songs ( hope youre reading this Danni and Rhyddian ! ) Still think Tabby was robbed in the first series .

    Comment by Mike Graham — Tuesday, 13 November, 2007 @ 23:42

  20. I think Niki should win. She has an awesome voice and given the right song, she would sail through. Why not let the contestants pick their own songs. Best of luck Niki am routing for you.

  21. SD stayed in cause they’re great. Maybe not the best singers but by far the most fun. Its very hard to find any happy cheerful groups in the charts now. They remind me of S-club 7 a bit. I really hope they win. I hate rhydian. Hes so full of it. Hes sure hes going to win. I hate that.

  22. I think Rhyddian is completely terrible … the worst singer on the show !.. Leon to win … a cute scottish guy with tremoundous talent. Same Difference are ok, Hope should be out of there by now ! .. Can the public wake up and smell the coffee .. Rhyddian out , Leon to Winnn !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
