Matt Cardle: Katie Should Have Gone!

Matt Cardle has come out in support of Aiden Grimshaw, who went home last Sunday after polling the lowest number of votes from the public.

Cardle said that Aiden was “a much better singer” than Katie, but that “In terms of the television show, Aiden was expendable”. In an interview with the Daily Record he said:

“I was shocked when Simon sent him home, but then Katie is better for the show than Aiden is. She gets the coverage, she gets the show attention. He just isn’t like that but he is a much better singer.

“When it went to Katie and Aiden in the bottom two, I didn’t think he would go. Even when it went to deadlock, I thought he would stay. It is like losing a brother.”

Simon Cowell defended his decision to save Katie Waissel on the Xtra Factor, saying that he admired her resilience.


  1. Get Katie off she is rubbish

  2. Well said Matt but now do the honourable thing, and persuade Rebecca and Mary to do the same, – withdraw from the competition. It is a sham. You are the only three singers left. All the other acts, apart from Paige, have rung pound signs in Cowell’s mind. None of them have any talent. I am shocked that the parents of the boys in One Direction are letting their sons be so obviously exploited.

  3. Matts right Aiden is alot better at singing tha Katie is.Katies been in the bottom 2 four times now. Simons only keeping her because he brought her from another record deal. Otherwise im sure simon feels bad about letting Aiden go I would… :)

  4. It doesn’t matter who went because the votes are the votes. Katie got more votes. Don’t like it, next time vote.

  5. well said(y).Katie should of gone!! its obvious that the public dont like her otherwise she wouldnt be in the bottom 2 all the time. Its wrong that katies alowed to be on the Xfactor if she already got a reccord deal in the U.S, its unfair on all the other contestents!!!
    Katies a fix, just like last years jedward!

    Matt.Cher.OneDirection.Rebecca&Mary got the powerfullest voices on the Xfactor!!

  6. i like katie and aiden the same and i think matt is sort of right about the bit where he said that aiden is a better singer but if i was one of the judges i would keep in katie as she is more fun to watch.

  7. I partly disagree with Alex as Aiden should have stayed in. Katie should leave this week.

  8. Just a thing, is this xfactor a joke or what? why are they keeping the worst singers in and letting the good ones go…..The show is probly not worth watch anymore actually, its pathetic…if the public votes are low on a good singer then the judges should take over. What in any right mind is Wagner still in??????
