Two Acts set to leave X Factor this week!

As with last year’s special ‘twist’, this weekend’s X Factor is set to ratchet up the pressure on the contestants by removing not one but two acts from the show!

80′s nearly-star Niki Evans now heads the bookie’s lists of most likely to win, but we all know that one poor song choice can end it all, as it did last week for Daniel. With Same Difference and Alisha both with the longest odds, and Emily not far ahead of them, there are bound to be tears before the night is out. Best of all, there’s no room for the relationship between the judges to come into play for the least popular act – whoever gets the lowest number of votes is out!

Daniel: Louis Let Me Down

The latest contestant to be removed from the X Factor, Daniel de Bourg, has spoken out against his mentor Louis Walsh.

Daniel blamed Louis for forcing him to sing ‘Build me up Buttercup’, a song he says didn’t suit him at all, and led to his premature exit from the show.

“I was surprised, of course I was surprised,” Daniel said at a press conference. “I’m upset that I didn’t get to show the real me.”
“Louis knows what he’s talking about, he’s been in the game for a long time, but maybe he didn’t really understand me, the kind of performer I am.”
“I was doing my best in there with the song I was given, I tried to do it justice,”
he added. “But with a show like X Factor you have no say.”

Daniel had previously been the bookie’s favourite to win the show, but his removal leaves the two groups made up of ‘nearly good enough’ singers, Hope and Futureproof tipped as most likely to win.

Daniel Second Act to Leave X Factor 2007

This week was themed ‘film week’, and the previous bookies favourite Daniel was the second act to be booted off the X Factor.

Three judges voted to remove Daniel from the show, with only Louis, Daniel’s mentor, voting to keep him on.

For the second week running Alisha was also in the bottom two, but survived the judges vote.
