Filed under: 2006 Contestants,4Sure

4sure X FactorWhen 4sure member Donovan Bailey, 38, West Midlands, talked about the moment they found out that they hadn’t made the final 10, he said:

“We were gutted, very shocked and very surprised. We did not expect to be in the bottom two, but we are proud of getting this far in the XFactor – it is not the last you have seen of us. Our dream is to record albums – three albums in five years as well as write and produce for others.”

4Sure the second act to leave X Factor 2006

Filed under: 2006 Contestants,4Sure

Louis Walsh was left with just two acts tonight after Simon Cowell used his casting vote to send 4Sure home and save Robert.

Simon had earlier commented that although he “liked you guys [4Sure]“, he “didn’t like the arrangement” and that they sounded “like a group of 80 year olds”, “wet, a bit ploddy and old-fashioned”.

4Sure commented afterwards that Rod Stewart definitely wasn’t their style of music, but “still wanted to show that we could adapt and prove that there is a different side to us, but, we did have worries about the song choice. We just didn’t feel that it was one of Rod Stewart’s most popular tracks and that may have gone against us.”

X Factor Contestants Get A Surprise Visit From Rod Stewart In Rehearsals

The eleven X Factor finalists thought they were on their way to just another rehearsal, but were in for quite a surprise…Waiting for them in the rehearsal room was the rock legend himself, Rod Stewart.

Donovan from 4Sure said: “It was just fantatsic. We walked through the door and Rod was just standing there. We couldn’t believe it. He gave feedback on everyone’s songs. We weren’t quite sure what he’d make of us because our style couldn’t be more different from his. But he was really great.
He told us that he loved what we’d done with the song and that we should continue to put our own spin on it.”

4Sure will be singing “You’re in  My Heart” on Saturday’s live show at 17:45 – 19:45 with the results shown at 21:05 – 21:40
