      Even more of a dispappointment was that Paddy Power were offering odds of 11-1 against Leon winning earlier tonight and I didn't have a flutter! Rhydian was always odds on and SD were second favourites!!

      Also gutted!!

      Gutted too, but it was a bit like picking how you wanna die - all choices here were dreadful, but I absolutely hate when they get these young men singing jazz/swing and all that.

      Catherine Jenkins ruined Rhydians efforts, it sounded awful.
      Plus the Welsh don't tend to vote for someone from the next village.(Gryff Rhys Jones view not mine!) Same happened last year on restoration.
      Also how can you sing jazz without years of alcohol and drug abuse under your belt?

      Re: X-Factor

      Well im glad that ridicule or what ever fella didnt win

      I always found that beneath the surface he appeared to be a little ignorant and full of himself. But thats my take.

      I was hoping Same Difference would win if im fair. Although sounding very party-ish they put life and effort into performing, which to be is what its all about (as well as being able to sing off course).
      Regards,

      "but it was a bit like picking how you wanna die" - SimpleRules

      Quietly, would be my answer.

      I was also forced to watch the final voting.
      It was difficult holding down my supper.
      What was revealing was when it came to the final two
      contestants the judges clearly wanted Leon to win.
      They almost said to Ridofhim - nice try but go back to Wales.
      His own sponsor was drooling over Leon. "I love that guy".
      Yeah. I hope you get what you want girl because the guy
      can't get up to the notes.


      Every morning I wake up, turn on Radio 1 and
      thank the Lord I'm Welsh and deaf.

      Re: X-Factor

      I actually think on the night the person who gave the best and more balanced performance won. The guy is nothing compared to Leona Lewis but still I think he was better than the other two last night.

      Re: X-Factor

      Leon was bound to win. Fact, he will appeal to a wider audience, and sell records to chart. Dolph Lundren's love child will only ever appeal to a particular audience, and end up in shows in the west end
