John and Edward leave the X Factor

The marmite twins that everybody seems to love or hate have finally left the X Factor, after a bottom two sing-off against Olly Murs.

Singing Boyzone’s No Matter What, the boys were voted off by Simon, Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole, avoiding the deadlock situation that had saved them previously.

  3. Really relieved at that decision! Lloyd has to go, next and then, I have no idea who’ll go out at the semi-final; they are all so good.

    Danyl to win! Though, I really wouldn’t mind if any of the others, bar Lloyd, were to win. (Though, I would HATE to see Cheryl win again…)

  4. Dannii, I love you. Thank goodness, as you asked THE question what the X factor is supposed to be about…..SINGING! You, of course, knew the answer before even asking it. So naturally, you made the obvious correct choice. Too bad your fellow judges didn’t realize what this competition is supposed to be about as well, otherwise Jedward would have been gone long ago and Lucie would still be in it.

  7. for me this is the worst year to date, every one of the contestants (with the exception of joe and lucy ) have a problem singing in key. Is this really the best britain has to offer? Stacey was great in auditions but since seems to wander from the tune.The show has lost it’s magic, dannni and cheryl are very prety but sing as well as half the country, louis is a childish irritating baboon that can’t string a sentence together, and simon is a spoilt brat that manipulates every situation to produce the result he wants, perhaps it should call it judges egos. I think it needs a new format and new judges that are qualified to do so the n we might have something thats more pleasant to listen to and can make us prod to be British.

  9. Finally! Yes, a miracle! Danni was brilliant asking if this is a “singing competition”. Yes it is, which is why Deadwood had to go!!! Without the gimmicks, dancers etc, you saw them for what they were – talentless pathetic brats! Now we can vote for who we want to win – Stacey is my fave, but heh now dumb and dumber are gone, I don’t mind who wins! Louis Walsh, you clearly know nothing about singers – just proved it! Put dumb and dumber on CITV – for 6 year olds and under, which is who has been voting for them for the past month! Nana Nana, hey hey, GOODBYE!

  10. I couldn’t agree more with this decision. Those guys were entertaining but I think its time to allow the real talent to shine through.

  11. if olly had been put out last night simon would only have had himself to blame.he had his chance to get rid of them but put lucy out instead

  13. It was a singing compertiton so john and edward should of gone ages ago. Now they gone it will make the votes a lot easier because everyone else can sing. I would like Joe or Stacey to win the x factor because they are brillant. For John and edward there is always next year to come back and try wining the x factor

    Whats The Theme For ThIs Week Anybody No?..

    Comment by Brandon crewe — Monday, 23 November, 2009 @ 23:35

  15. There isn’t a theme next week, the public now decide what contestants sing what song – as singing is the operative word, that’s why dumb and dumber had to go – did you EVER hear anyone murder that Westlife song the way they did?!!!! Oh and Fred Wright – weirdo! You are right when you say they can come back next year WINING (whining) the X Factor – they already did this year! But winning? What planet are you on – same planet as Subo/Louis Walsh no doubt – get over yourself.

    Stacey to win – who agrees? Never been in the bottom two (don’t want to jinx it!!) coz she’s brilliant – go Stacey.

    Comment by Deadwood, shut the door on your way out!!! — Tuesday, 24 November, 2009 @ 12:59

  16. None of the five left are great singers. They have all been out of tune at some time in their performances.It does not help that Danni and Cheryl who are mentors cannot sing in tune themselves. The standard is not great that is why Jedward did so well. The acts that went before Jedward were very ordinary.Lucie and Rachel could sing but had absolutely no chasrisma or star quality.

    In previous years I have really had been excited by at least one of the acts but this year there is no one that makes me sit up and take notice.

    The two with probably the best voices are Danyl and Joe but they are not outstanding. Stacey hasrse way. failed to live up to her audition promise and Olly is nothing more than a good karaoke entertainer. Lloyd is just dreadful.

    Jedward should not have been in the Final Twelve but they were so bad that they were actually entertaining in a perverse way.

    I doubt if I shall watch anymore of this year’s competition. I think Simon has some very serious thinking to do. I am sure that many people only tuned into X Factor because of the twins. If that is true Mr Cowell has a real problem.

  17. I think John and Edward should of stayed in the competition!!! John and Edward should of also went through Olly should of been sent home not John & Edward now I am never ever ever watching the x factor again right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. See Comment 17 – Michael!!! You need to do a spellcheck before you write such crap! I mean, “should of” – maybe you mean should have!!! Oh and big deal you’re not watching X Factor now that Dumb and Dumber/thick and thicker have gone and you think Ollie should have gone?!!! What planet are you on and obviously from Dublin – thick springs to mind! Mindless, moronic crap, but just won the lottery coz the talentless muppets are gone – and so are you, there is a God! Essex Factor to win – Stacey is soooooo good – even dumb and dumber think so! What they know about singing you could write on the back of a stamp! See you losers!!!!

    Comment by Thick & Thicker - you know who!! — Saturday, 28 November, 2009 @ 12:01

  19. OMG thank god the twins went out, i thought that this moment would never of came. i cant believe that louis hadn’t noticed what he had done to the competition witht he twins. Jamie should still be in and Lucie should definately still be in, i thought that lucie could of got to the at least the quarter finals.

    Olly To WinxXxXxXxX

  20. 16.None of the five left are great singers. They have all been out of tune at some time in their performances… very true of the remaining five …..except for Joe. He has mastered each and every song he was given to sing.

  21. The X Factor should be renamed “Louis Bashing Factor” because that’s all they seem to do. God forbid you should say anything to upset Cheryl – she gives you a look that could kill! Danni “sits on the fence” not wanting to up Cheryl (again) and Simon is just so rude to Louis all the time – it’s so unprofessional! and guess what, O’Leary has joined the “bullies” with his smart sarcastic remarks about the “rules being being broken”!

    They are showing themselves up and letting the singers down – they all seem to have “hidden agendas” and the biggest egos on the planet. My interest is fast wanning because I have lost all respect for the so-called judges! Do they not listen to themselves on the playback of the shows?? It is suppose to be about the contestants and not them!

    Who do I want to win… too scared to say in case I upset one of them! Arrr.. who cares…. Stacey of course!
