Paije Richardson leaves the X Factor

Paije Richardson has become the latest contestant out of the X Factor, after a sing-off against Cher Lloyd.

Paije joined the series as a wildcard entrant, and sang Stop as his sing-off song in an effort to try and stay in the competition. Simon, Cheryl and Louis all voted to keep Cher in the competition, and so Paije was out.


  1. I am totally weary with X factor audiences, who can not seem to tell what is good. Why vote for dross like Wagner when he cannot even sing in tune. Do these voters enjoy watching those with real talent who work so hard, be humiliated? What a cruel and inconsiderate and unkind world we live in. Do they sit and laugh at the obvious pain they are giving to the contestants with talent? Stuff the Wagner voters, they are the scum of the earth. They may feel they are having a go at Simon, but how many innocent and hard working young people are they going to damage in the process. I WILL watch X factor again despite them, and I will vote against them. Contact all your friends and GET THEM TO VOTE FOR ANYBODY but WAGNER. I am sure he’s a nice guy, and he will get some work out of this, but don’t put these other folk through humiliation again. PLEASE.

  2. Urm, gutted about paije :( he was so good, funny how the audience was shouting for him too stay, but louis saved Cher he should of just put it too deadlock. I see Simon is still backing up cheryl! And arse licking her. And Wagner is still in it’s pathetic I’ve given up on x factor it’s soo fixed.

  3. I am glad he is gone. Every week he bores me to tears and is a waste of airspace. Now get rid of Wagner and Mary and it will be the competition it should be.

  4. why is louis walsh such a chicken. two weeks ago he voted in the worst performer (katie waissel) on the day and treyc cohen went home. today he voted int he best performer. why cant he be consistent for once.
    xfactor has become appalling.

    Comment by Richard — Sunday, 21 November, 2010 @ 22:17

  5. the x factor show it is turning in to a joke……… its getting riddiculous that people who can actually sing are leaving an wagner is still in the show…he can’t sing, he can’t dance, he’s always out of tune surely it is fixed there is no way that he is the programme by public vote, who do i writ to to complain about this as i am losing intrest in the show an so are many other people at first maybe it was funny but now louis has turned it in to a commedians act the show is a talent show an he clearly don’t have any….. why should the contestants have their dreams crushed when their competing against somebody who can’t sing an clearly doesn’t want to win it.
    there must be something that can be done about it surely
    thanx charlene

  6. I agree Cheryl was very unprofessional . I saw a side of her I didn’t like! She should know better.she knows what the pressi is like and she been in the business long enough. I felt she attacted a vunerable contestant. Shame on her. It shows her dark side! What’s wrong with been from a council estate? Well her open attack shows were she came from . I am sure a lady like Kate ,prince William bride to be would not have behave like that! That’s a real lady . Yes Cheryl Wagner was right you are a lucky lady !

  7. the shows a joke if wagner dont go next week i wont be watching the show again!!! FIXXX!!!!

    Comment by katie — Sunday, 21 November, 2010 @ 22:34

  8. Hi Everyone

    Suprise suprise Paije has gone. He was so much the better singer and didn’t deserve to be sent home. Simon and Louis are we all listening to the same show? I’m not so sure. Hope Cheryl Cole was hauled over the coals for her bitchy remark to Wagner. Very unprofessional and uncomfortable to watch.

  9. For many years I have been a big fan of the x factor . But this year I am getting suspcious . It’s getting too predictable and I worry that some acting is going on with the judges.

    Comment by Joe Andrews — Sunday, 21 November, 2010 @ 22:44

  10. What a disgrace the best singer in the sing off was sent home , just so the cash cow could be kept in the show. As for cheryl’s outburst to wagna who does she think she is to critisise and try to belittle someone for something written in the gutter press. This show has become a joke and I hope the smurffs get the xmas number 1 !!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Ted — Sunday, 21 November, 2010 @ 22:55

  11. Please let the real talent be the winner. Wagner has had his time inthe spotlight. I won t be watching the show next year.

    Comment by Elizabeth Sedgewick — Sunday, 21 November, 2010 @ 22:56

  12. So Katies new haircut saved her, yet again the ‘real me’ was totally different to last weeks , 10/10 for effort

    Paije seemed resigned to the fact he wouldn’t beat Cher, and the publics tactical voting wins again. At this rate Matt n the class Rebecca will be in next weeks sing off

  13. i cant believe it that paige went i supported him from sice day one and now to see him go is very sad louies should had put it to deadlock i like paid=ge because he brings a different to the show me and my family are always looking forward 2 him all i have to say is that x factor has no talent anymore because all the good singers like paige and treyc has gone paige if you get this i support you alot and youre are still my favourite no matter what
    love you

    Comment by dessy — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 09:01

  14. the reason wagner is still in the show is because people are boycotting the show like last year stopping the song getting to number 1 they are all voting for wagner to screw up the show and win !!!!!!!

    Comment by emma stephanou — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 09:03

  15. Paije should not have gone Wagner shoul have!!!!
    XFactor has turned into the Fixed Factor
    Bacause Wagner should have gone weeks ago
    good acts have gone and he is still there
    Whats going on!!!!!

    Comment by Katiee xx — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 09:33

  16. Paije should not off gone nor should off aiden the other week. Get WAGNER out !

    Comment by Nina — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 09:58

  17. Neither Paije or Cher should have been in the bottom two. Wagner should not have got through to the final 12 (so Simon, Danni and Cheryl need to take responsiblity as well) and Louis should be thrown out for turning the show in to a pantomime. He did it last year, and has done it again this. You can blame the voting public – but if you do you must also blame the judges! Otherwise, I love X Factor as does the whole family.

    Comment by Caroline — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 12:43

  18. of course x factor is not a fix how can wagner get though all these wekks while all the good acts have been going out it is disgusting he just can,t sing

    Comment by natasha — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 13:50

  19. never voted until last night..and i got 8 of my friends and girlfriend to vote too..we voted for wagner..Why?
    Its simple cheryl cole was trying to play on the public and manipulate them..her comments had nothing to do with the performance..she of all the judges should know better, she let herself and her acts down..She acted like a bully and the nation saw…the publics retrabution will be seen through the votes now!!

    Comment by Mevco — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 14:39

  20. It is outrageous that Paije or Cher were selected as being in the bottom two. It’s actually an insult that they are seen to be worse that Wagner.
    This is basically the fault of Louis Walsh for selecting him as a final contestant. He made an equally ridiculous choice with what was to become Jedward. There is clerly something wrong with the man.
    Either htat or there has to be some suspicion pointed at the truth behind the voting results. Are they real or are they adjusted to maintain audience figures.
    The X Factor for me has lost all credibility and has degenerated to a circus.
    Will not be watching any longer

    Comment by Mick Isle of Man — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 14:47

  21. Cheryl Cole needs to take a good look at herself and remember she is not bigger than the show.everytime her acts are put under the microscope by other judges she flips into a rage.also her comments towards Wagner at the weekend were so out of place and showed a lack of respect for the whole viewing public. Maybe its time Simon pulled the plug on Cheryl ,we dont want another Sharron Osbourne.
    Cheryl sort yourself out or leave , if you are a judge then you must be judged!!!!!

    Comment by mark wilson — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 15:17

  22. Anybody who votes for Wagner, whatever the reason, has a screw loose. Simple.
    I like Cheryl, she says it how it is, and pretty much always agree with her, although i’d never have put Katie through to the final 12… Wagner is cocky, says whatever he wants to the papers & has already been told off once! He deserved the bitchy remarks, he’s a joke of a human being.

    Comment by Sara — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 16:29

  23. Simon you have got to a grip.I have watched the X facxtor since the beginning, but I am so fed up of petty arguments between the judges. Are you out to get rid of the programme and move to the USA, as seems that way, got what you wanted. I would like next week judges comments to be true and a tosser like WAGNER with no talent to go. The programme is becoming a joke.

    Comment by Ellen — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 16:53

  24. All who are ‘tactically’ voting for Wagner are shooting themselves in the foot. They are paying silly money for the calls and the show is raking that money in.
    If you want to make a point then don’t vote at all – that way the show won’t get the money but the votes that are made will be genuine.
    Carry on as you are doing and you will continue to play the show’s game and give it more and more money – stop voting and they will learn their lesson not to play tricks with the public by insulting the good performers through including the likes of Jedward and Wagner.

    Comment by Theresa — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 16:56

  25. Actually think everyone should not watch next week. Start a campaign and everyone watch Strictly or Casualty and read about the crap in the paper.

    Comment by Ellen — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 16:57

  26. Paige was my favourite and I am very sad to see him go. He was the best performer in the singoff by a mile and at least sang something unique. The thing that gets me with all these fools supposedly ‘boycotting the show’ by voting for Wagner are actually lining the judges and shows pockets. They have the last laugh all the way to the bank! Why do you think that every year they put a crap act through? Each year the general talent has got better but the one crap act they put through gets worse. There is now a war between Wagner voters and non Wagner voters and all you are doing us putting lots of money in the judges pockets.

    Comment by Mrs S — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 19:03

  27. I think it’s terrible that Paije was voted out. The judges must be hard of hearing as he clearly had the strongest vocals, I believe it’s a case of turning on the tears and your told you’ve sang well. Are we not tired of the waterworks when it comes to Cher! She has weak vocals, yes she may look the part but the XFactor should be about more that that. I’m tired of the XFactor this year. And Simon, when is he actually going to vote against any of Cheryl’s acts. Coward!! And then there’s Cheryl, so unprofessional, a bully, attacking Wagner, he may not be a good singer but I was outraged at her behaviour, it shows the real side of Cheryl!!Simon should repremand her for this!! By the way, Louis should also have let it go to public votes, he as been telling Paije for weeks how brillant he is and then he does this!! I will not be watching XFactor anymore!!

    Comment by Madge Doc — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 19:08

  28. you cannot blame wagner for getting the other singers evicted. If the panel of muppets (i mean judges) had not selected him in the first place to goto boot camp let alone the final twelve.

    The same happened last year with jedward. It seems to me that they always have an act lined up as fall guys to throw people of the scent of vote rigging. Why did louis not go for deadlock. Was it because cher had a lower number of votes ??????. Watched aiden on tv after he had been evicted. seemed to me that he had a gagging order????

    Not happy about the votes this year.

    Comment by dave — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 19:54

  29. I am obsessed with cheryl cole she is the best I love her songs Cher is so good i want her to win I absolutely hate Wagner Paige deserved 2 stay in why do people vote 4 him?

    Comment by Emily cheryl cole is the best xxx — Monday, 22 November, 2010 @ 21:26

  30. I am completley fed up with the show i thought it was about talent, about finding someone who could potentially sell records and maybe crack the US market aswell.People seem to vote pureley on likeability rather than talent.I can think of a reason why each and every contestant should not win apart from Cher and Matt.One direction get the cute vote every week never get a bad comment, now there are so many boy bands out there who are 50 times better than they are so if they think they could outsell JLS for example then good luck to them but i dont think so nothing different about them.Mary now she maybe would be a similar artist to Susan Boyle but again no where near as good she sings the same songs every week how boring. Rebecca proberbly annoys me the most actually as when she comes on to perform i feel like i want to go to sleep again is a one trick pony but never gets a bad comment all i hear i things like she’s so sweet and nice, so down to earth and the best one you bring class to this show rebecca now i dont know about anyone else but going to one of her concerts or buying one of her albums and listening to tens songs of the same zzzzzzzzzzzz.Katie i just dont get what sort of artist she really is seems to have no direction and Wagner well i thinks everyone knows what he is.From Chers first audition she stood out i predicted at very least she would make the live shows.She knows what sort of artist she would like to be and she stays true to that she is the only one that is origonal and interesting to watch.She does the big production songs and nails them,she is given a Elton John song for god sake and take a big risk with it and still nails it,and the times she is given ballards to sing like Stay and Imagine which is a old fashioned song for a girl of that age she still pulls it off when will people realise she has stage presence,she has the voice for sure, she can rap, she has the x factor instead they talk about the stairs she was sitting on to sing pathetic.Like Cheryl said it is about being versatile and she more than anyone has shown that and deserves to win if she doesnt she definatley deserves a recording contract out of this show.Hope pretty soon they give Mary and Rebecca a up tempo song and reveal just how much they will struggle.Also get WAGNER OUT.Good Luck Cher you derserve it.

  31. The X Factor is becoming a joke with people like Wagner whom I am sure is a very nice bloke but with absolutely no talent (out of tune and looking like he’s been dragged through a hedge backwards). If people are tactical voting just to get back at Simon I’m fraid they are rather pathetic and lining the pockets of the judges. Also what about the people with real talent who are being sent home because of this voting. I think there should be another way of voting but then real talent would win through! What would have happened if Leona Lewis had been on the show would she have been voted off! If Wagner gets through then I think a lot of people will not watch the show again and Simon should look at these people very carefully who have absolutely no talent.

    Comment by Margaret — Tuesday, 23 November, 2010 @ 16:52

  32. Shame on Cheryl Cole for attacking Wagner – totally uncomfortable and unprofessional. She behaves like a spoilt brat – a chav. She claims to be upset when recently called a chav but she certainly behaves like one! As far as the singing is concerned I think Simon must have a hearing problem to repeatedly call Katie brilliant – so brilliant she is almost always in the bottom two. No sure how the show works in the later stages but is it logistically possible for somebody who is almost always in the bottom two to win?

    Comment by mellynda — Tuesday, 23 November, 2010 @ 19:24

  33. Katie is a good singer and before when she was ina ll those sing offs I think it’s the newspapers falt because she is a good singer. Cher is really good and what was simon talking about the stairs looked cool!!! I love rebecca she has an original voice and she s talent. She is not anoying!!! Treyc shouldn’t have gone out she was a good singer coz she could sing a variety of songs Mary is so boring she is good but does the same thing all the time . It’s getting ridiculous with Wagner. Befor the results my brother even said I bet Paige is gonna go out coz he isn’t known or liked as much he was great!!! One of Cheryl contestants has to win Cher has to win!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Emily cheryl cole is the best xxx — Tuesday, 23 November, 2010 @ 19:53

  34. Well said Ellen (24). I like many will be following your advice.

    To those who say that the X Factor is a singing contest why are none of the Judges credible singers ?
    Danni and Cheryl are not “successful” because they can sing. Louis and Simon obviously have no idea what singing in tune is.

    In 2010 only six of the sixteen finalists consisently sing/ or sang in tune. Matt, Mary, Treyc, Aiden and Rebecca.Not surprisingly two of them have already gone.

    Putting Katie and Cher through when they completely messed up their performances at her home just emphasised that Cheryl Cole and the X Factor are jokes and fakes. Katie and Cher are not in the contest because they can sing it is because Cowell thinks they will make him money.

    If the programme is so successful why is Leona Lewis the only winner, who can actually hold a tune consistently, and the only one who has had longevity ?

    The X Factor is not about talent but how much money can be made.

    Stop being conned and switch off. I am sure all four judges will find other ways of making money.

    Comment by James — Tuesday, 23 November, 2010 @ 20:58

  35. Cole had a cheek to attack Wagner. At least he “sings” live. Maybe one day she will sing solo and live in a concert hall, somewhere without electronic help, and let the public judge if she is any better than Wagner or whether her “voice” has been electronically managed.

    Comment by Violet — Tuesday, 23 November, 2010 @ 21:08

  36. thought Cheryl out of order with a judge it is not her place to attack contestants should have spoken to him offstage. Dont like Wagner but Cheryl uses and abuses the press and she knows that you cannot believe all you read in them. Also Wagner sang live, badly but live, Did Cheryl..i dont think so..enough said!

    Comment by barry lewis — Wednesday, 24 November, 2010 @ 16:37

  37. omg!! I cant beleive that Paije jus went!! He was so good and i was so upset wen Aidin went !! He was my favrite! vagner shud hav gon by now nd so shud hav katie!! I cant beleive vagner’s still there!! He cant even sing and then people like tracy and aidin and paije go and they are all amazin!!
    And I know Katie can sing but she’s not going to win since she’s been in the bottom 2 four times so I dont know why they all keep saving her when other people hav a chance!!!
    Im seriously wonderin if the show is rigged now becoz Vagner’s still there and cher who’s one of the favrites was in the bottom 2!! The show isnt as good as it used to be – its supposed to be a singing show but now that there’s people who cant even sing it just like a joke! Its absolutely ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by aNa — Wednesday, 24 November, 2010 @ 20:52

  38. Mary’s so gudd!! and i luv Matt nd Rebecca!! Cher’s good aswel! Get rid of Wagner, he’s rubbish nd shouldn’t b there in the first place, i dont no why he even got through the audition!!
    Aidin was my favourite so it was stupid that judges saved Katie!!
    It has to b fixed!!
    THe show is turnin into a joke !!!!!!

    Comment by anna — Wednesday, 24 November, 2010 @ 20:58

  39. I am sorry Paije went because he seems genuine and has a very good voice. So does Cher, and I think she is a real original. Katie will be in the bottom two again this week – surely she has to go? Rebecca and Matt both have fantastic voices. One direction – only one or two of them can actually sing and their harmonies are all over the place. But young girls will like them. Mary will never be a pop star, but will do very nicely in the pubs and clubs of Ireland, thankyou. Wagner is the protest vote – and I can’t blame them. Louis and Simon need to stop cat-fighting and Cheryl needs to stop coming across as so bitter and twisted. I think Dannii is the only one being honest and true to herself right now.
