The Mirror article reckons that the Irish clowns John and Edward will stay after voting closes on Sunday night. That is quite a possibility. Although some talented singers such as Leona Lewis and Alexandra Burke have triumphed in the x-factor in the past, the non-tone-deaf UK lovers of the monster reality talent show have regularly been shocked by the patterns of voting; the kind of painful pattern that gave Leon Jackson the crown in 2007. Never a fan of Rhydian, the Welsh should have beaten Jackson without needing to sing.
I will therefore not be surprised if John and Edward stay after the votes come in later tonight. I however do not agree that if the voting pattern reflects the quality of performances, that Rachel Adedeji would end up in the bottom two. She definitely sang well and looked great. Danyl and Joe were amazing. I suspect that Lloyd Daniels and Lucie Jones will be in the bottom two, even though the truer reflection of performances should be Lloyd and John and Edwards doing the sing-off.
