My FB just erupted in derision. They MUST win
Simon Cowell: "err, so how do YOU think it went? "
Cheryl in tears after it all
That may be the most LUDICROUSLY OBVIOUS SABOTAGE THEY'VE EVER DONE
earthly dull. At least I Hope You Dance had the poppers remix to liven it up a bit.
Cherly and Simon getting up to applaud before the song was over.
They might have salvaged some morsel by giving both acts original songs suited to them, like they do in the much superior Australian version.
Not even a good song for Louisa.
The only good choice they ever had was Impossible for James Arthur which showed when it was a massive seller despite the drop in ratings.
That child is far too old to be picked up like that
Daisy looks like a stage school brat.
What an unflattering dress.
I'm glad that despite being a multi millionairess Adele is still true to her roots to be moved by a good old fashioned X Factor sob story. Maybe she can give Lauren's nan a job as a cleaner so she can move out of the flat and Lauren can sleep in her own bed.
Louisa didn't really want it did she...
I wish the winners song was a cover of 'Forever Young' by Interactive, rather than this by-the-numbers boring shite
Less than three pages for the final episodes.
I think Louisa is a decent enough singer, but that song is appalling. Even worse than Cannonball! I didn't see Reggie and Bollie's version though but the SLATING it got on my FB feed was unreal.
We get it, babe. You're not watching this year.
Rita on the stage then proclaiming herself a winner and then hanging around awkwardly for pretty much all of the final performance was hilarious! As was the simon and Cheryl standing ovation... Nope too soon quick sit down
Have the voting figures been published yet?
They're here: http://www.itv.com/xfactor/news/the-2015-voting-stats-are-in
Louise topped all weeks except two where R'n'B and Che got most (for Che it was the week after he was in the bottom 2)
I thought Adele and Coldplay were fantastic (as an aside) and both looked genuinely pleased to be there which was nice (unlike one direction)
So she only got 53.9% of the vote? I didn't even watch this series but I've liked an R'n'B win just to see the fallout from it…
EDIT: Oh I see, it's 53.9% including the 7% for Che so she had a substantial lead.
So is Forever Young the single, currently NUMBER SEVEN in iTunes?
Assume it's not THE Forever Young.
It's number two now. I don't think number 1 is a certainty at all. It would be the first one not to make it, I think. I know Joe lost to Rage Against The Machine but he did finally make it.
With streaming I think a low chart placing is very possible.
The Sunday final had 8.4million viewers. Down 1 million from last year. The decent figure was only because of big names like 1D, Coldplay and Adele performing. Gone are the days of 14 million viewers for this show.
Turgid winner for a turgid series, and that winner's single is a fucking ATROCITY.
I only watched 2 episodes this season so this may be rubbish, but it seems to me that when the show was first on you had winners who even if they weren't particularly old, had still lived and struggled a bit. Now you have kids whose sole ambition is and has always been to win the X Factor, which doesn't make for a particularly compelling narrative. From the little I've seen of Louisa she seems utterly devoid of personality despite the objectively good voice.
Louisa is a robot. She said something the other day about 'dreaming of this for so many years', and that really pissed me off - she's seventeen! She's literally achieved fame at the first opportunity, so it's not like she's had to suffer in obscurity for decades before making it.
Compare and contrast to poor, abused Verity Keays in series 1. 106 years old and desperate to make something of her wasted existence.
See, I actually found that part quite interesting. Louisa is, arguably, the first winner from the "x factor generation". She was 6 when the first series was on and so she really has grown up with the show and seeing it as the only route to becoming a popstar. I would imagine that most of her musical knowledge/influences come from the show which would explain why she's so typically x factor it's almost robotic. She's essentially a product of the show and the most obvious example of its influence over the past decade.
You're being very unfair there. She had to cope with the earth shattering rejection of being turned down for Britain's Got Talent (and being told to do X Factor instead).
Oh God, I didn't realise. She's the Anne Frank of pop.
Very annoying face.
Reggie and Bollie also auditioned for Britain's Got Talent and were told to audition for X Factor instead.
From what I have heard, Lauren Murray was the only act from the top 13 who was not scouted in some way or other.
She's now #1, with Justin at #2 on 0.62 but his streams will be sky high. Will be interesting to see if she makes it, I think she might just, but she definitely won't be Christmas #1.
She looks like a shit sex doll.
She isn't dominating iTunes to the degree previous winners have. Considering Bieber has sales from Saturday and most of Sunday over her, and the fact that Bieber's streams will be far greater than hers (I note she isn't top 50 on spotify yet, although I have no idea what period their chart covers or when she was made available there), I don't think she'll make #1 this week, unless she manages to pull away from him a lot more.
It will be interesting to see how she fares on iTunes after the initial 24 hour period from the single being available.
Averaged 8.4 million viewers for Sunday's results show, with a peak audience of 9.7 million when Louisa was announced as the winner.
That's the week of the Brits. Has it got to the point already where they want her to fail?
Just over a week before Mothers day .. what a coincidence
