    she aint the best singer herself.
    Danyl to win!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by natalie stewart — Saturday, 7 November, 2009 @ 21:07

  8. What the hell is Lloyd Daniels & J n Edward still doing on this show. THEY CANNOT SING.It is rediculous to think that good singers are being put out and they stay in.
    Come on people, what are you doing keeping voting for them. I am welsh and I think Lloyd is rubbish.
    It’s about ability not where you live.

    Comment by Pete — Saturday, 7 November, 2009 @ 21:41

  9. what a cheek Cheryl’s got saying ‘Unchained Melody’ is cheesy – considering the cr*p she sings!!! I thought she made an error of judgement not putting American cuttie Ethan through, now I know she is not capable of good taste. I’m speechless, just can’t add anything else rational. Now I have heard it all.

    Comment by Nicky G — Saturday, 7 November, 2009 @ 21:50

  10. I can’t believe how mindless and pathetic the makeover people are, ‘new improved image’ I absolutely love Danyl he’s my favourite ever contestant on the X factor. But what they have done with his hair by shaving it all off is so stupid and John and Edwards hair I wanna get the garden shears on that, the X factor destroys any natural beauty and charm that the contests have. i don’t even know what Cheryl is on about Danyl being cocky and she can talk after her last performance which wasn’t that great anyway. Hope Louis’s not as moody as he is tonight and Simon’s not as smug even if he does have the winner.Still can’t believe what they’ve done with Danyls hair he’s lost some of his charm and interest but he’ll still win and he’s the best singer ever to be on the X factor no matter what anyone says!

    Comment by Summer — Saturday, 7 November, 2009 @ 21:52

  11. Why are people picking on Danyl?
    If his first performance was cocky, then why isn’t lly cocky for opening his shirt? So what if Danyl is bi! Is Cheryl afraid it hits home because her husband is rumoured to be bi too? (and they’re both mixed race.)

    Comment by Fabien — Saturday, 7 November, 2009 @ 23:10

  12. And what’s up with Stephen Mulhern… he says the same thing every show. He picks on Danyl everytime – is it to draw attention to himself?

    Comment by Fabien — Saturday, 7 November, 2009 @ 23:14

  13. Why was Danyl the most hated contestant 4 a bit, he’s the best singer to b on the X factor anyways. I think Cheryl is jealous she can’t sing as good as that. Although John and Edward can’t sing the best I still feel sad 4 them getting booed all the time, but I think people r keeping them in cos they feel sad 4 them and to piss simon off.

    Comment by Summer — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 09:57

  14. Where is all this Danyl is cocky stuff coming from?? We see him for about 5 minutes every saturday and during that time he is singing!!! It just shows what some people in this country are like, they are in love with a bimbo who can’t even string a sentence together. Typical chav behaviour

    Comment by Eliza — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 10:26

  15. Much as Lloyd is cute and Jedward are rubbish but good fun, they both need to go. After that I don’t think I can pick between the rest. They have all stepped up their game and could all be potential winners. Not since the series when Gareth and Will were in the final have we seen a such a really good all round talented bunch. I’ve voted for Stacey as she is charming and I don’t know what Simon is talking about in his critisism of her this week. For me this was her best performance yet and note perfect. Go stacey!

    Comment by Tracey — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 10:27

  16. I agree with the comments about Danyl being picked on…there is just so much hostility towards him that just isn’t justified. He is by far the best singer there and yet all he gets is grief! And why is Olly allowed to be cofident on stage and dance and Danyl isn’t? There is alot of bias towards Olly which is unfair. That Stephen Mulhern needs to back off Danyl as well, he needs to get a life!!

    Comment by Paula — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 12:44

  17. As an initial doubter, i’m really suprised how little support Lucie is getting. She is the only one who seems to listen to the judges and improve week on week – the xfactor bosses already commented that she works harder in rehersals that anybody else in the competition. Whereas other contestants have cried (Rachel…miss her btw!!), stropped (Danyl) and thrown the towel in (Llyod) when the chips were down, she just worked harder. She deserves more credit.

    The last few weeks, she has come out of her shell and really impressed me. Don’t get me wrong, I think Danyl is the best singer there, but for some reason, im always left feeling that everything he sings ends up sounding the same – strangely, I understand what Cheryl means when she said she was getting bored of the big last note. For ‘all round package’ my vote is with Lucie.

    Comment by Mark — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 13:58

  18. Stacy could be the next modern Cilla Black she is so funny

    Comment by STEPHANIE — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 15:38

  19. u are got to be kidding just read that jedward could get a tv show and be the next ant and dec come on whats the matter with how people are seeing talent next we wil be reading that cheryl is the new pm come on open yr etes and lets see the real talent if it was down to the public from the start jedward wouldnt be there so y the heck are they keeping them in now as for cheryl what the heck u maybe queen of the undergroubd but best not forget that without the others in girls aloud u wouldnt be sat where u are today and where do u get off slagging off a contestant personally u voted along with the others to put dan through so y critise him now everyones entitled to their opinion and mine is vote stacey to be the next george in a updated version of rainbow she impersonates him beta than she can sing

    Comment by jackie — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 15:53

  20. i hope john and edward dun get thro 2nite because they r nufin but a pair of pathetic irish twits n should never sing on tv again.This show should be called the jokefactor, louis walsh needs his ass kicked!!!!LUCIE 2 WIN, ALL THE WAY GIRL…!!! X

  22. Cheryl and simon having an affair????? wot do you fink ppl? ??? x factor is getting pathetic wit jedward!!! JEDWARD 2 GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! they are twats!!!!!!!

    Comment by JJJ — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 19:08

  23. why does everyone say lloyd needs to go? his voice is the only unique sound. if you close your eyes and listen you will love it.there are enough singers blasting.creaming and shouting out there….lloyd has a lovely tone…….but I LOVE LUCIE !!!!!!!

    Comment by mandy — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 19:43

  24. What a crock. Black Eyed Peas? More like Black Eyed Please go and do a sound check before going live. Absoloutly woeful. John and Eddy sounded better last night.

    Comment by Smick — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 20:27

  25. thats it never again simon you coward this family will never watch x factor again you have made it a joke programmes

    Comment by kevin — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 20:59

  26. Simon Cowell said he would quit X factor if John and Edward won it, tonight he has demonstrated what an egotist he is. Lucy is a great little singer, the worst decisionever made we are furious!!

    Comment by AndrewB — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:00

  27. Simon is such a jerk. The reason that he sent it to public vote is because he is tactically trying to chip away at credible contestants so that his 3 don’t have any real competition…. as retribution STOP VOTING FOR SIMON’S CONTESTANTS – give it back to him. He’s a jerk and he needs a taste of his own medicine.

    Comment by FG — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:00

  28. what is the point in having judges if they just cop out???? im not watchin this farce of a show any more!!!!!!!

    Comment by calvin and co — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:00

  29. what a fix wont be watchin again one of the best singers put out for 2 who cant even sing

    Comment by john boor — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:00

  30. Simon has made this program a farce by keeping JEdward – cop out by Simon. This is no longer a viable program and a singing competition. How ludicrous!!!

    Comment by LRR — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:01

  31. I think it is an absolute disgrace that Simon Cowell does not have the balls to keep someone who has talent in the competition that is supposed to be a singing competition. In all the weeks that this show has been running he has had nothing decent to say about Jedward and apparently Lucie sung the best she had ever done. All to keep a few pennies in Simon’s pocket – I hope it backfires on him as 2-6 years don’t have alot of money to buy the records. I’m finished with X-factor as it’s not a talent contest now!!!

    Comment by Angela Niven — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:01

  32. The x factor this year is just one big joke.

    Comment by elizebeth — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:01

  33. what a load of crap will not be watching it anymore

    Comment by georgina — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:03

  34. I cannot for the life of me think why simon did that it is terrible i thought this was a singing compertition not a comedy show i certainly will not be watching the x factor again as lucie should have never been voted off those twins are awfull that was simons chance to get rid and he didnt total crap i have always watched x factor no more !!!!!

    Comment by debbie — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:03

  35. Simon what have you done? You had the chance to get rid. Don’t tell me it’s down to votes. In the words of Nan ‘WHAT A LOAD OF SHIT’

    Comment by paul brown — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:03

  36. SIMON! I thought you knew what you was talking about. Not now. If di this for your own gain in the competition you suck

    Comment by Mike — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:03

  37. o my god, i used to think simon was a legend and was always right but no more, i cant beleive those talentless twins are still there to damage my hearing, not intrested any more, BORING! o and olly to win

    Comment by David Ashcroft — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:04

  38. Nothing more than a tactical vote by Cowell tonight as he is trying to reduce the competition on his finalists. J&E should have gone weeks ago (as SC stated himself)

    Comment by DnD — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:04

  39. Simon Cowell is the most contriving person on this planet, he knew who were in the bottom 2 and to think that the lovely Lucy Jones has gone out to two kids who can’t sing a note of music…THIS IS A SINGING COMPETITION…Simon’s pet phrase. WE SWITCHED OFF IMMEDIATELTY and thank goodness “I’m a Celebrity’ Starts next week, as we will NEVER watch X Factor AGAIN. I hope that there are LOTS of people out there who have done what we’ve done and will never watch again. To think that Cowell manipulates the revenues of ITV for his own smug ends!!!! He even manipulates the NEWS programme too now!!!!

    Comment by Steve — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:05

  40. Lucie is a fantastic singer and after her and rachel being sent out the show i refuse to watch x factor!!! It is absolutly ridiculous that two weak acts have remained in the competition and good singers and losing out!!

    Comment by Denise — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:05

  41. SIMON IS A PRICK!!! How can you do that?? You should feel really bad now… IM NOT IMPRESSED!!!

    Comment by Sam — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:05

  42. Fuming!! cant believe how nasty simon is, hes such a copout….he needs sacking!

    Comment by sarah — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:05

  43. Mr Cowel or should I say coward ! your actions this evening are at the vert least pathetic, never shall i watch your programmes as they are false and calculated
    Very poor show from you sir.

    Comment by Sue — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:05

  44. simon coward really dragged the show into the depths tonight he did not have the courage of his convictions to send the two children failures from bgt to the binn he has has just lost the show its credibilityu for fairness and we now know it is fixed for the ratings, my family will no longer be supporting the touring sho ws it is a disgrace.

    Comment by james kendall — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:06

  45. X Factor is Shocking how the hell can simon save the twins and not the girl she was clearly the best oh my god i thought we.d finally got shot of the twins who caught sing and cant dance and are so bad and irratating i just wanna cry!

    Comment by Ailsa — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:07

  46. What a shambles; I thought the X factor was a ‘fair’ competition. Simon needs to address his morals in that he needed to make a decision on the extent of the capabilities of the contestants and not on the affect that his decisions would make on his group. Meaning that Lucie may have become more of a contender that his boys.

    Very Very dissapointed in the calibre of decisions tonight. Booooooooooooooooooooooooo

    Comment by Jacqui — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:07

  47. I cannot believe that Simon Cowell has copped out yet again!!! What a wimp. He has been told by the public what they think of them doing that and the spinless little man goes and does it again. Rachel should never have been sent home and now you have done it to Lucie. What is the matter with you man!!!! John and Edward are awful and no matter how hard they are trying, they are rubbish and will never be pop stars. Get real. Lucie has a fantastic voice. Makes you wonder if Simon Cowell is doing it on purpose to get rid of all the competition for his singers and leaving the rubbish in!!!

    Comment by Angela Bullock — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:07

  48. Having watched tonights show (sunday) i am disgusted with the blatant tactics of Mr Cowell, he knows that the threat comes from lucy and not the twins,and that is why he put it to deadlock knowing that the twins have a massive following. but i fear it will back fire on him when his singers are in deadlock against the infamous twins!

    Comment by julian — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:07

  49. Simon you’ve taken this too far – are you so desperate for success that you will trade quality for quantity -i guess it;s true when you cheap you’re cheap – you so hooked on success you would sell your soul – anyway i will never watch the new XFACTOR again – you have just crossed the borderline. I hope the sensible public boycott your show.

    Comment by Felicity Spain — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:08

  50. I think John And Edweirdo are ridiculous!!! Stacey to winn!!! x

    Comment by Jade Hall — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:08

  51. No point watching the X factor now. Simon is a twat to keep those idiot twins in. RUBBISH SHOW……was massive fan. Now….why bother. Isn’t it supposed to be a talent show, not to make Simon richer than he already is?? what a jerk.

    Comment by aussiegal — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:08

  52. What a complete cop out by Simon yet again, how different the outcome if Jamie had been in the bottom two, does this make for good tv? I think not

    Comment by alison — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:09

  53. what a shame ! i think simon showed his true commercial colours tonight. its a singing competition he said then let lucy to the wolves. i watch every week and thought he was a true professional. its amazing what money can do

    Comment by chris — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:09

  54. Just something else to add – I hope next week one of Simon’s contestants like Olly or Jamie who he thinks will win is in the bottom two with the twins and Cheryl and Danni go against him and vote his act off!!

    Comment by Angela Niven — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:09

  55. How could simon vote lucy off? he had Jedward in a vulnerable position, he could have got rid of the act he hated, but instead got rid of an act that was good. Louis, sto making stupid rules. This show is about singing talent, it’s not about two boys ‘living their dream’ and having ‘fun’ by torturing our ears and getting decent acts voted out of the show because simon won’t get rid of the bad acts and is ‘letting the public decide!’ SIMON is turning into one of the twin’s fans!He must vote them off before the next new moon or will be like that forever.

    Danyl is just plain full of himself, and very cocky.


    Louis, next year pick decent acts.

    Lucy, youre a good artist, simon was wrong to get you off the show!

    Comment by Luke — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:09

  56. I will never watch X factor again after Simon refused to vote. he had the opportunity to put this show back where it needed to be. I really hope he does leave the uk as he has shown us he is a money making machine and all us voters are really stupid ! Lucy really deserved to stay in. What is this show about? absolutely nothing anymore Simon you have lost your balls !

    Comment by Rachael — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:09

  57. After tonights sham I will not watch the x factor again!!!! A disgrace!!! Lucie sang beatifully.

    Comment by lisa — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:10

  58. Did anyone watch tonights show?? If so what did you think? I think it is a fix!! John And Edweirdo betta not win this dam show! I am actually threatening that i am never gonna watch the show ever again! x

    Comment by Jade Hall — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:10

  59. Have just turned over before the end of the Results Show today thoroughly disgusted that Simon yet again was cowardly enough to go to deadlock. There is no way in the world that Lucy should have gone out over John & Edward. Everyone I speak to agrees the boys cannot sing and do not deserve to still be in the show. After the farce of this evening I will not be watching next week. The whole show has now become a complete joke. Shame on Simon have having no “balls” to make the decision the majority of the public have wanted for weeks. The reactions from the audience should have been hint enough as to the right decision. This show is now a total waste of money and I for one refuse to waste any more of my time watching it. Next week I will be watching BBC1 and Strictly Come Dancing instead of recording it as in previous weeks. I sincerely hope other viewers follow suit. I am absolutely furious on Lucy’s behalf. What a joke!

    Comment by LISA RONAN — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:10

  60. Simon Cowell is bang out of order.
    He has critised JEdward week after week on how bad they are. Lucy was far better and cannot be compared against two brats who cannot sing or dance.
    The show is a farce!!!!

    Comment by Paul — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:10

  61. Was Lucie a threat to Simon’s contestants. Lucie was definitely the best singer in the competition. The competition is NOT about the judges and which of them wins – your ego is too big Simon – you know you have done the wrong thing and you have showed yourself up tonight. Your judgement is generally sound, but you are trying to win for your own category by any means and this has been your ploy, putting down any competition to protect your own, at the expense of this brilliant young girl – shame on you, you knew what your actions would do to the result when all along you wanted the group out.

    Comment by Diane — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:11

  62. Are u kidding me. John n edward need to be shot! They are awful and the programme has become a joke! Get rid of the annoying little twerps!

    Comment by Gregg — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:11

  63. Simon Cowwell wouldn’t know talent if it hit him in the face. He always goes on about how much he hates J&E and yet he doesn’t put them out tonight? Its all about publicity now, not the music. Well i’m not watching the show anymore. Simon Cowell should move abroad because hes ruined his career and all self respect for himself.Cya x

    Comment by Rosi125 — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:11

  64. What a dull ffagot Simon is, Simon has slated the twins from day 1 and the day he gets a chance to get rid of them he goes to dead lock what a complete shit eating, piss drinking, arse sucking dick head and because of him Lucie has gone. I don’t know what Simon has got against Lucie but i’ve lost complete respect against Simon

    Comment by smokes — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:11

  65. The X Factor results tonight were a disgrace Lucy was 1000% better than the twins they might have the cute and cring factor but they cant sing or dance,I think tonights results will have people switching of I know for a fact I will no longer watch X factor,I only hope John and Edward win now and teach Simon a lesson,because part of me thinks it was tactical voting, because he knows Lucy was more of a threat to his boys than the twins, The whole thing stinks.

    Comment by Gillian Louden — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:12

  66. Lucie is the best singer in the competition and I think simon neeeds to stop being so extremely jealous cos his scts are not as talented as her

    Comment by bob — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:12

  67. I cannot believe that Lucie has been voted off the X Factor in favour of John and Edward. Simon has always said that this is a singing competition and now he has taken the coward’s option and given the public the vote. No way should John and Edward still be in the competition over Lucie. This is the X Factor not Britain’s Got Talent. Simon said he had got a lot of stick for letting the vote go to the public. I think he may find he will get even more stick for this one!

    Comment by Dougie — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:12

  68. omg, i cannot believe Lucie is out!! She was amazing and talented!! Simon was sooo wrong to take it to deadlock when he knew full well who was the most talented!! Simon Cowell is a hypocrite and a coward!! He keeps slagging off Jedward and then gives them another chance and keeps them coz it’s his fault they’re still here!!! I think they’re funny and entertaining but they cannot sing and when you buy their CD, you won’t see the production but you’ll hear the flat singing!!! I reckon it was just coz Lucie was a threat to his own boys, but still, Simon destroyed the dreams of a young girl who i think could have gone so far in this competition!! My family and I are seriously thinking about not watching the show anymore as we are DISGUSTED with Simon!!! How dare he!! COWARD COWELL!!!!

    Comment by Laura — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:13

  69. Hope this really backfires on Cowell …..

    We will now stop watching x factor as with the Jedward v Lucie Jones it is patently not a contest- why am I suprised!

    Hope loads of people boycott it from now on.

    Comment by L Walls — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:13

  70. I think the show is a fix so this probably wont be put up!! Simon has lost all credibility he said he is leaving the country if Jedward win so why didnt he send them home!! its a singin competition not a talent show!! its a fix and im not watcin it anymore its a joke i feel so sorry for Lucie xx

    Comment by claire johnson — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:13

  71. Simon…. WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU PLAYING AT? You had a bl**dy chance to get rid of them. Lucy can sing… unlike the twin twits.

    I’m not watching the show anymore… the show is not about talent. It’s about popularity!!!!

    Comment by Louise olliffe — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:14

  72. what a joke ‘yes the public should vote but come on have the balls to have your own mind. simon you arse!

    Comment by Andrew roberts — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:14

  73. Lucie should not have gone tonight it should have been John & Edward, she is a brilliant singer, John & Edward are a good laugh BUT it is a singing contest, Simon out of order doing what he did he has always said John and Edward are rubbish, why did he do that, Simon you are a louse!!!!!

    Comment by katie — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:15

  74. What aabsolute joke, I hope others will now be boycotting the program also, talent show bloody freak show more like

    Comment by Jen — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:15

  75. simon bottled it. thought it was ment to be a singing contest. shame on you simon

    Comment by chris — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:15

  76. What is Simon up to? well we all know that really don’t we if I was one of his acts I’d be worried has he got any faith in them that he has to get rid of Lucie and not the no talents crettins thats are left in. Be worrird over 25’s I think you’re great but does your mentor??? I always thought he was strong and reliable. All of a sudden he’s choosing the fence and has lost his bottle!!!!

    Comment by Gwendolyn Kirby — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:16

  77. what is simon cowell smoking. He has criticised john and edward every week. Tonight, he had the chance to get rid of the talentless duo. Instead, he took the cowards way out. How dare he say that lucy cannot sing. The show is aired to recognise and encourage talent. Farce. New name is Simon Coward!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by kevin — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:16

  78. What I would like to know is who turned of Jedwards microphones, because all you could hear was the backing singers. Simond has definitely got an agenda in getting Lucy out.

    Comment by Jan Jerrim — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:16

  79. how the FUCK can john and edward still be in the competition??!?!?!?!!! i just dont understand how people are blindly obeying the judges comments and have let the two slip through into the next week again. the show is about how well you can sing, NOT how well you can prance around stage completely out of tune and sync, which is why “jedward” should have been shot a long time ago. to let Lucie lose her chance for people who cant sing, I.E. jedward and lloyd, is completely beyond my point of view. in my opinion, people need to open their ears and have their own ideas on things.

  80. I AM SO ANGRY! Lucie is amazing and should have stayed in. John and Edward were clearly no match and Lucie should have been put straight through. Simon you knew who was the better singer there so dont blame it on the public its your fault!

  81. Simon Cowell is a total waste of space, use to admire him but am totally outraged that he has winged and winged about the twins: they cant sing: they are a joke ; They are horrendous. you total bottle job and spineless fool. X Factor is now a total joke. He had the change to send the twins home and bottled it. What a loser. Will never feel the same way about him again. He had his chance to send them home and instead let the public send lucie home is a threat to HIS acts. I will now vote for the twins just so Simons acts dont get in and I hope they now win it…..

  83. simon cowel you are a gutles wimp, you have no thought for the contestents just your self. you harp on week after week that the two idots cant sing then dont have the bottle to get rid of them. maybe there is more truth in what we read

    Comment by rory white — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:18

  84. Omg..what has simon done. Lucie really did not deserve to go, she was 1 of the best i the show. I thought it was about who had the x factor and john and edward defenatly havent got it.

  88. What a farce the result was. Simon Cowell has reduced his viewer rating at least by one. Never again!!

  90. I cannot believe Simon Cowell, what planet is he on. Well i for one will not be watching X Factor again as it is obviously just one big fix how can he keep the twats in and put out talent.

    Comment by amanda — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:22

  91. Simon I have always supported you and your comments but this time you have gone tooooo farrrr!!!! I you are now totally responsible for putting Lucie out of the competition and in your words this is a SINGING COMPETITION!!!! I WILL NOT BE WATCHING THE SHOW ANYMORE>>>> I HAVE ALWAYS WATCHED AND LOVED THE SHOW… but cannot stand to watch … V DISAPOINTED!!

    Comment by Catherine — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:22

  92. This farce has gone way far enough, I’m not even going to bother watching the rest of the series now and if the rest of you have any decency in you you won’t either, this is only about making Mr Cowell money and he’s already got more than enough, goodbye ITV!

    Comment by Chas — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:23

  93. how can the judges play with people lives as if they were dolls i think the x factor is a fix Lucy sung her heart out tonight she was a lot better then the boys i thought this was a singing competition not a joke competition simon cow is a right dick head he saids about john and edward shouldn be in the show and then he lets them stay wot a fucking joke

    Comment by michaela — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:23

  94. Simon Cowell will get his result – a male winner. His lack of integrity has removed two excellent female singers. I wonder if he really could handle J&E winning.
    Well I will not be watching the Simon Cowell farce anymore, singing talent show … not anymore

    Comment by Colin — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:24

  95. I just knew that Simon would pull a stunt like this! Sitting watching with my family I predicted what he would do. Why does he make a comment about choosing the best performance on the final sing off when he blatantly goes against his promise!!! Is this tactical voting or is it to increase the viewer ratings?
    Simon has lost his credibility this evening – he has done this before. Poor Lucie, she is an incredibly talented and beautiful girl who showed good grace and composure even though the wrong decision was made. Well done Lucie!

    Comment by Kay — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:25

  96. simon cowell is a spineless hypocrit going to the public vote, after weeks of saying it is a singing competition he totally ignores the chance to get rid of those idiots and lets a great singer like lucy get voted off,the whole show is a complete farce and a fix and I will not be watching again, good luck to lucy am sure she will do well despite simon cowell!

    Comment by lottie — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:25

  97. simon cowell . what a hypocrite. he said lucy and the two divs would be judged on tonight`s performance but he totally bottled it.he bangs on about this being a singing contest well lucy is a really good singer and them two ain`t.the show is becoming a joke now and the blame lays on his shoulders. i have lost all respect for him now.i know he has two of the stongest candidates but I hope he loses now. i had to get this off my chest I am steaming !!!!.

    Comment by BAZZA — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:26

  98. Simon cowell is a disgrace for taking the decicion to the public vote. At the start of the show tonight when Dermot O LEary asked him who would be leaving he had no hesitation in naming Lloyd and despite telling the nation since the begining of the live shows that the twins couldn’t sing he chose to go to deadlock. What a hypocite. This was a blatant tactiful manouvour on his part and he should be ashamed of himself. I hope the twins win and his record label have to put up with them for the next twelve months

    Comment by Julie — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:26

  99. jedward wat can i say they are absolute rubbish. wats simon thinking about .This is suppose to be a singing comp not an entertainment comp. They are been kept in to keep us tuning in just to see if they go its a joke and i for 1 wud rather watch channel 5 and thats saying summat.

    Comment by su bradley — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:30

  100. Oh by the way…. Lucie you are fantastic!!!! Don’t give up, keep on going… onto better and better things which we have no doubt YOU WILL!!!

    Comment by Catherine — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:31

  101. I am so so shocked that the twins were saved tonight.. and poor Lucie had to be sacrificed!!

    Simon had the chance to turn this show back into a singing competition but instead it’s turned into a mockery!!

    Who in their right mind would ever want to audition for a show that’s all about the judges ego’s, fame, publicity and pockets!!

    Comment by Sharon — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:31

  102. I am totally disgusted with Simon Cowell. I thought this was supposed to be a talent contest but Cowell is only interested in keeping viewers. Well, this is one household that will not be voting or, indeed, watching the programme again.

    At least Lucy could sing unlike the awful John and Edward.

    Comment by Yvonne Sloan — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:33

  103. Until tonight i had the greatest respect for simon cowell, the way he gives his honest opinion on the acts performances mo matter who it offended, but to turn round and leave the decision of tonights sing off to the public vote after the comments he has made about john & edward right from their first audition is totally unbeleivable.
    He has now shown to the public that all he is really interested in, is the publicity and controversy that john & edward bring to the show and not the actual singing talent of the contestants, you dont need to be a mathematician to work out that – Publicity + Controversy = Ratings which = MORE MONEY FOR THAT SPINLESS COWARD.

    Comment by marius — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:36

  104. Thinks tonight’s result is an absolute farce!! How can Simon justify not sending Jedwood out when he had the chance when he said only last night that they can’t sing etc and simultaniously predicting Lucy will be in the final 3!!! What a JOKE!! Always thought a lot of Simon but this has put me off him and put me off watching the show. This is a singing competion-yet seems mostly about ‘what Simon wants’ and shows what he wants is whatever gets more press and ratings!!
    SO ANGRY!!!!!

    Comment by Rebecca — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:37

  105. im so mad with simon how can he not vote out the twins well now hes lost a viewer im so angry it must be a fix he slags them off every week he must be scared because she was a great singer i always thought simon was good at his job but now i think otherwise you keep saying every week this is a singing comp and that you would leave the uk if the twins win so maybe u should start packing now simon

    Comment by michelle gallagher — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:38

  106. Ok X Factor is now off in our house. The show has become ridiculous. Simon Cowell is a hypocrite and it has all gone to his head. To keep the twins in after all these weeks of slagging them off shows that he holds the public in contempt. Advertisers take note you may keep twin lovers but you are losing a LOT of viewers. We’ll put DVD if nothing else on..

    Comment by maggie — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:40

  107. deffo not tuning in again x factor barred from my house i wanna slap them grins off the twins faces god ive got it bad

    Comment by su bradley — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:45

  108. In the 4 years of watching the X factor, I have never been so shocked!

    The fact that Lucie Jones has now been voted out instead of the idiot untalented twins is just a nightmare.

    Because of Simon’s decision I will not watch the rest of this show and if one of his acts win I will never buy their album!

    Comment by Charnelle — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:48

  109. I think this could be the last X FACTOR because of Simon Cowell he keeps saying its a contest about vocal talent and for the second week he craps out of a decision,and every one on the show is frightend to say anything incase he sacks them , Always thought a lot of Simon but no longer WHAT A JOKE HE IS !!! YOU HAVE JUST LOST A VIEWER.

    Comment by Jim — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:53

  110. I thought Simon Cowell was supposed to be a guru in the pop world . Well you have certainly showed your worth, money in your pocket is not everything simon. One day Lucie will prove you wrong…guaranateed

    Comment by Mick White — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:57

  111. coweell does it again, after all he has said he keeps in the worst act ever and gets rid of an act that would have beat at least two of his three, look what is left a lad with no voice, a lad who can only sing rock, a lad who has lost his mojo whatever that is, and twins who are only there because they are the only thing on the show that is entertaining

    Comment by m watson — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:58

  112. I am so angry, Simon has moaned and moaned about Jedward. Tonight he had every opportnity to get rid of. But no, lets get rid of talent and keep grim brothers in. Sorry Simon but you have become a weakling tonight! There was no question about who you could or should have saved. Simon has now made a mockery of this programme. Always recorded opposite programme but now, know what to watch. At least other side more genuine! Simon get a grip, but unfortunately you have lost big viewers because of your silly, stupid ideas of keeping crap in!

    Comment by Jayne Johnston — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:58

  113. One other thing. I will never watch X-Factor again !!!

    Comment by Mick White — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:59

  114. Simon Cowell…. professional music producer????? YA RIGHT!!!!!! You are the ultimate HYPOCRIT!!!! Or you could even be called a COWARD!!!! I have been a huge fan of X-Factor…. until 2nyt!! For the last 3 live shows you have continually slated Jedward for not being able to sing and 2nyt was the perfect chance to get them out!! I am Irish and I would gladly see them go, they cannot sing and therefore should NOT be in the competition!!!! It is so blindingly obvious that you went for the public vote to bring more controversy to the show and ultimately get rid of one of your MAJOR competitors!! What you did 2nyt was very very wrong!!!! Lucy is an AMAZING singer and should not have gone!! It really is such a shame!!!! Please stop the mind games and let the true singers shine!!!

    Comment by Michelle O'Loughlin — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 21:59

  115. Well what another disaster of a show, it should be re-named “how to get the publics back up”.is this what we are paying for, i bet the jokers who voted for the twins wouldn’t pay £50 quid plus at a concert venue to listen to their shambolic performance. If we are looking for Talent aka the X factor this show is now doomed because the mockery of it is an insult to the genuine performers on there and an insult to the greater public.People should now vote with their REMOTES and switch over and stop supporting the viewing figures of this almighty disgace..

    Comment by jimlad — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 22:00

  116. i am extremel irritated that john and edward have stayed in and people that deseve to stay in have been voted out. i think simon should of thought more as he had the chance to send the boys home, he nos that they are no good and is is not fair on the other contesents, fair enough if it was britain got talent as they are funny in so sort of way but it is not, it is a sing contess, they can not sing even if there life depened on it, my self and so many other people thing the same way about these two boys. something really needs to sorted out, louie u have made a big mistake putting these two thorough they should have never got though to the live show it is embarrasing to watch them please can somthing be done.

    Comment by jade polley — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 22:05

  117. I am lost for words to say this week,I will definately NOT be wasting three hours of my time watching utter rubbish again,it would be more entertainig to paint a wall and watch it dry than to watch the rubbish we saw tonight.Wake up all you who voted for J&E,would you really want to listen to that rubbish over your breakfast or whilst driving.As for Simon,I am amazed at your cowardism,you have definately gone down in my estimation.Lets hope IF those two muppets win, you end up with egg on your face trying to make something of them,can’t wait to hear their first album,aghhhhhhhh!!!!!!! thats one of my jokes,not as funny as the x factor I must admit.

    Comment by LINDA — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 22:09

  118. I have always believed that Simon was a true professional in his field. After tonights show he should hang his head in shame! I would be very surprised after tonight if any one within the industry would take him or his opinion seriously again. He has ruined his credible reputation. I will not be taking the time to watch or support any of his shows again. Simon you have no balls!

    Comment by Julie Laman — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 22:22

  119. as simon seems to “value the public vote” so much by going to deadlock all the time lets all VOTE SIMON OFF HIS OWN SHOW!!! it is a complete joke and for all those people who are voting, he is just stealing your money from you! i don’t like john and edward but perhaps WE SHOULD MAKE THEM WIN – that’ll show simon what an awful mistake he has made tonight and show him what a complete joke the show has turned in to!

    Comment by batty — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 22:36

  120. I never write on these things, but I find myself still sitting 2 hours after the show has finished agog at the realisation of what has happened. Week after week Simon has criticised Jedward to be entertainers but not singers, then slags off other contestants i.e Lloyd saying this is a singing contest, so why is it then when he has the bottom two sitting in front of him, one an extremely talented singer and the other a farcical double act who cannot sing, does he send the singer home, and he will keep saying I didn’t put them in the bottom two, ok fair enough, but he has acted like he wanted Jedward in that position from day 1 yet he all of a sudden gets a consience. At the end of the day, Simon is sitting on his thrown making 50million a year from us idiots who sit here giving him the publicity he so craves. I’m not sure what has happened to him this year but he has turned into a smug egotistical self loving fuckwit, who is showing that maybe he doesn’t really know that much after all. The fact is if this was britains got talent I would probably vote for Jedward as I think they could be brilliant as a stavros flately type piss take act. But following the likes of Leona, Alexander and JLS this year it is a complete joke, maybe X factor has run its course.

    Comment by pam roberts — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 23:00

  125. I really can’t believe this happened tonight. I am absolutely certain of two things. Firstly Lucy, Danyl and Jo are by far the beat singers and secondly ANY ONE of them could have won after the last few weeks training no matter what Simon Cowell says. It is obvious that some of the best acts are appearing in the bottom because the public think they are safe and this is why it happens. I don’t dislike John and Edward and I see that they have received some great votes recently and so I know Simon knew they could easy stay on the public vote. How a professional in the music industry can not choose Lucy after that stunning stunning singing performance is beyond me. I have been to the US and I have been singing for a Disney Director so I do sort of know what I am taking about. Simon you really should be ashamed of yourself and prior to this I have always supported you, belived in your judgement and liked you. Truthfully I think this is the first time that you should take things back to last week bring lucy back and let the public decide next week knowing ALL these facts!! This really is absolutely disgraceful..

    Comment by Julie Clare — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 23:08

  126. so much for simons, this is a singing competition,Lucy was so much better at it than Jedward and he chickens out of the decision. I always knew it was a fix now I know for sure. Me,family & friends will not be watching this stitch-up again.At least the judges on antiques roadshow dont try to stitch each other up.
    Goodbye X factor.

    Comment by nrudge — Sunday, 8 November, 2009 @ 23:30

  127. Disgraceful decision tonight – Lucy could so easily have won especially with a few more weeks. Simon you should be ashamed of yourself. I used to look up to you but not anymore. Lucy’s stunning peformance deserves a change in your program and ALL contenders left should sing next week and let the public vote off who they want (2 of them) knowing ALL of the information tonight. I lived and working in the US for a Disney Director as a singer so I sort of know my field a little. Also it was obviously that the public vote would keep the J and E in. Disgraceful

    Comment by Julie Clare — Monday, 9 November, 2009 @ 00:06

  128. What can I say after tonights result – Simon Cowell obviously thinks the British public are a bunch of mindless idiots. He has made this program into a total farce. Talent obviously has no bearing on the result despite the “This is a singing competition” comment we have heard week after week. Anything you say now Simon, will be shown up as the money making scheme you are proporting as a Talent Show. This was one step too far. The other judges should also be ashamed of themselves for being associated with this hypocritical charade. I for one will never watch this debacle anymore.

    Comment by Neil — Monday, 9 November, 2009 @ 00:18

  129. Has the X factor turned into a Jeremy Kyle show? Did it stop being a family talent show of Britains talents? Simon tonight you sold out, stepped over to the media darkside. You say Lucy wouldn’t have won but I remeber at this stage in the competition Liona wasn’t as good as Lucy. ( she had the grace of a giraffe ) To take it to Dead Lock,Whats the point of judges(for the sane vote) you could should be of a job. Stop making this about you and lets concentrate on the talent I want to watch the show without having to explain subplots to my kids, why is Cheryl so bitchy to Daniel and are the twins the (wiggles sons to michela strachen?).lets get back to basics, its a family entertainment, talent show.don’t forget these are peoples lives you are playing with.

    Comment by Joanne — Monday, 9 November, 2009 @ 01:22

  130. Cowell’s decision was not about getting rid of teh compettion but about TV ratings – wheter you like it or not Jedward are car crash television and viewers tune in to watch them.

    If they go then I think some viewers will switch off.

    Cowell made the decision with his TV exec hat on not his music hat.

    It proves that the X Factor is not a singing contest but an entertainment show. It will only become a singing contest when we reach the last 4.

    Comment by Martin — Monday, 9 November, 2009 @ 10:10

  131. Postscript to message #130

    If people thought Lucy was so great why the hell did they not vote for her?

    Possibily because she has not had a fair crack of the whip when it comes to the media – others like Stacey and Olly seem to hog the headlines.

    By the way – is it just me? but I find Stacey’s witterings not only annoying but somewhat contrived – she is like Jade Goodie mark 2.

    Comment by Martin — Monday, 9 November, 2009 @ 10:15

  132. Danyl’s new look does nothing for him as his haircut is the most unattractive style. He does not have any charisma whatsoever.

    Comment by Helena — Monday, 9 November, 2009 @ 12:47

  133. Before next week’s X Factor is broadcast, let’s watch a repeat of Sunday’s results show. Simon Cowell’s dithering performance is one for It Will Be Alright On The Night! He doesn’t actually cast a vote. Is he too ashamed to say the words, “I’m going to save John & Edward,” in case those words come back to haunt him? If they should win the competition, he’d be forced to admit responsibility for putting them on the road to success. Instead, he says he can’t make a decision which means he abstains. If you do your Maths – the results stand – 1 for J&E, 2 for Lucie and 1 abstension. Therefore shouldn’t Lucie remain in the competition?

    Comment by Sharon — Monday, 9 November, 2009 @ 23:16

  134. Simon proved to the public,something Ialways knew,what an arrogant ass he is.Lucy Jones did not deserve to go out. I only hope that the public will stop voting for the rest of this series.I will never watch it again ,much to my husband’s pleasure.Tuesday 10.11.2009

    Comment by margaretdelicata — Tuesday, 10 November, 2009 @ 17:53

  135. P.s in a way it would be good for the twins to win.Simon said he would be on the first plane out of this country.Fantastic.But you cannot believe what Mr.Cowell says.
