X Factor Charity Single: You are Not Alone

The X Factor charity single for this year is Michael Jackson’s hit, You Are Not Alone. It features all of the X Factor finalists, and is in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital, a very worthy cause.

Jamie Out after Sing-Off with Lloyd

Jamie ‘Afro’ Archer and Lloyd Archer were in the bottom two tonight.

Simon and Cheryl unsurprisingly voted to keep their own acts in, leaving the decision to Louis and Dannii.

Louis voted to send home Jamie, because he believed Lloyd had the most ‘long term potential’. Dannii seemed to be having a hard time making a decision, but ultimately she had to send Lloyd home because Jamie sang the best. This meant that yet again, the decision went to deadlock and the public vote. That meant that Jamie went home, the first of Simon’s acts to leave.

Did Jamie leave because of the backlash against Simon Cowell for his decision to send Lucie Jones home last week have anything to do with it?

Song Choices for Queen Week

We have to admit to being slightly confused when we were told that X Factor’s theme this week would be royalty, but it turns out they were of course referring to rock royalty in the form of Queen.

Here’s what the remaining acts will be singing this week:

Jamie Archer – Seven Seas Of Rhye
John and Edward – Radio Ga Ga or Under Pressure
Danyl Johnson – We Are The Champions
Olly Murs – Don’t Stop Me Now
Lloyd Daniels – Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Joe McElderry – Somebody To Love
Stacey Solomon – I Want To Break Free

John and Edward are as yet undecided whether to do Radio Ga Ga or Under Pressure, and have apparently been rehearsing both.
