X-Factor 2010: The Final 12

{For those unfamiliar with The X Factor, the show is the UK’s version of American Idol – with a twist in that groups and over 25’s are eligible to enter. Now in it’s seventh season, the show is responsible for birthing the careers of Leona Lewis, Alexandra Burke, and JLS. It’s US version is set to launch in 2011}.

Katie Weissel

Cher Llyod

Rebecca Ferguson

Boys (Mentored by Danni Minogue):

* Matt Cardle

* Nicolo Festa

Groups (Mentored By Simon Cowell):

* F.Y.D

* Belle Amie

* One Direction

Over 28’s (Mentored By Louis Walsh):

* Storm Lee

* John Adeleye

* Mary Byrne

Needless to say, some of the picks were rather surprising (see: Cher, Katie over Gamu). Still, with the announcement of a twist next week, word has it some ousted contestants may be making a return.

    Gamu was robbed and, the sad fact is I used to buy Katie’s music but now I can’t stand her ,she is such a drama queen

  2. pico October 4, 2010

    why did cheryl pick katie when she is highly unlikable!? gamu nd treyc would have had a real shot at winning!

  3. Mr.M October 4, 2010

    Cheryl is a B****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Where the f*** is Gamu?????????????

  4. k October 4, 2010

    No Gamma, Treyc and Paije! I smell racism!

  5. ~AalexisR~ The Summer King (The Bahamas) October 4, 2010

    Um I’m shocked. I hope they give Tobias another shot and what about the Marlon guy? What the Eff were they thinking?

  6. ~AalexisR~ The Summer King (The Bahamas) October 4, 2010

    Matt is over 25 isn’t he? He over sings too, I just don’t get it.

  7. MUSIC LOVER October 4, 2010

    The groups are on fire.

    I can’t believe they didn’t take Gamu. B*******!

  8. teefah October 4, 2010

    I cannot believe that cow Cheryl didn’t put Gamu thru, hope she gets picked as a wild card

  9. andre October 4, 2010

    The problem started when they changed the catergories. I think Paije and Marlon could have got through. I think Trey C and Annastascia would also have stood a chance and Louis would have had a stronger catergories than the left overs he got although I do like Mary. But Cheryl got it badly wrong with Gamu. Gamu had public opinion on her side. And I think that race did play its part no black contestant would have got through on the performance of Cher and Katie. If Katie were black and behaved like that she would have got through the first audition – but if you’re blonde and cute you get away with murder.

  10. The Truth October 4, 2010

    Cherky Cole is a damn racist eEND of, do you forcet when she beatthat clack woman down ith e toilet at the club years back, maybe Gamu reminded her of that woman, I cant satnd that b**** Cheryl, straight up, then marries Ashley Cole to divert that she is a racist, treats him lik crap behind closed doors, the has the audacity to use William for her solo career. F*** HER

  11. The Truth October 4, 2010

    a lot of typos ^ cause I m pissed off

  12. Lady Honest October 4, 2010

    X Factor has just dismiss all the YOUNG, GIFTED AND BLACK Singers from this competition.
    So if you are black and you’ve got talent, don’t go on this f***** up show.
    They don’t know what true talent is.

  13. Lady Honest October 4, 2010

    Cheryl Cole/Tweedy is as bad at picking her acts as she is at picking her men
    ( Ashley Cole and Wii.i.am)

  14. ds October 4, 2010

    Oh wow i’m pretty shocked Gamu didn’t make it in…she could have been the potential winner.

  15. Lady Honest October 4, 2010

    Will.I.AM who sat next to Cheryl and helped her made her choice, do you call yourself a BLACKMAN? How could you help her choose two white acts that were rubbish over all the talented black acts in her category. You dam fool!!!!!

  16. Lady Honest October 4, 2010

    @TheTruth Your talking the real truth, agree with you 110%

  17. Sam October 4, 2010

    Preach it The Truth thank-you for pointing out what so many black people do not want to accept.Cheryl is a racist and a talentless one at that.Of course that b**** does not want black female singers who will make her look vocally challenged when she mimes again on the show to promote her new single.Stop giving her a free pass she has always hated black women keep complaining.To think they want to take her to X-factor US hope this is the end of her.
    Gamu and Treyc were robbed and treated with no respect.will i am is a gay coconut.

  18. ADE October 4, 2010

    I think Dannii, Simon and Louis got it spot on. But Cheryl is stupid as f***! I can’t believe she put Katie through, that girl is so annoying and unlikable. Gamu was robbed man. The only decision she made that I’m happy with is putting Rebecca through…I think I’m in love with her. And does anyone else think she favours Cassie?

  19. Simon Kay October 4, 2010

    @ The Truth @ Lady Honest

    She married a black man, how can she be racist?? dont be so short sighted and ridiculous

  20. chaf October 4, 2010

    i think the juges have no idea about music.they are not qualified to be there. i will never watch this program again.time of good music is over

  21. Sam October 4, 2010

    Simon Kay you dont be so short sighted and ridiculous.Cheryl beat up a black woman and hurled racist abuse at her then suddenly she starts to find black men attractive, it was to save her career.Ashley Cole is just a stupid black man with no pride.Danielle Lloyd did exactly the same thing when she was on big brother racilally abusing Shilpa Shetty she comes out and starts dating every black man she could find-fact.
    Cheryl we know is a racist chav but what is will i am excuse the man is sick and suffers from self hatred.

  22. AH WAT DE BOMBACLART October 4, 2010

    cheryl if i ever see you i will kick your flat ass lol, how the hell did she pick that maddona looking, annoying drama queen over gamu…. Gamu girl my advice is strike whilst the iron is hot, go and turn this around and get you a record deal cos you can sing thats for sure, she was intimidated by your pipes.. will i am not, sellout fool.

  23. Emmi3 October 4, 2010

    Where the f*** is GAMU ..no gamu …na x factor..no offense to the others….but heeey wtf….

    no gamu no x factor . Cherly you suck !…You idiot ! you better make this right dickhead !!

  24. Ayo October 4, 2010

    I think Simon and Louis were spot on and the girls messed up big time. Atleast Danni picked Matt that’s one contestant, but Cheryl! I love Chezza but she really let me down last nite. Not really to concerned about Gamu I think she’s ok but Im not as obssesed with her as the whole nation is, but never in a million years would I ever have even thought of putting Katie or Cher through. From their very first audition I thought the pair of them were garbage. Cheryl had so much talent to pick from and then she ended up picking the worst of the bunch. Why she did not pick the most talented girl through aka Treyc I do not understand that girl was robbed last year by Simon and now again by dumb Cheryl. Cheryl had a great oppotunity to win this but now I can guarantee that she won’t even be in the top three. SOOOOO DUMB! I BACK Matt Cardel and Storm lee one of them will win.
    P.S. Danni should have put Paige through.

  25. Ayo October 4, 2010

    I take it back Cheryl should have picked Gamu. SOOOOOOOOOOO DUMB!

  26. ~AalexisR~ The Summer King (The Bahamas) October 4, 2010

    I just don’t know how Katie got through. Rebecca was a good choice but Keri should have been picked also. It’s a damn shame.

  27. Daniel October 4, 2010

    Its an entainment show as much as a singing one.. Kate is way more entaining then gamu, who just sang and didnt have much of a personality, which is needed for a show like xfactor..thats why jedward got through last year. You people going over the top, saying its racism, which always happens when black people dont make it far in the show.. its exactly the same on shows like american idol. I think cheryl picked the correct 3 for the show. Cher is great!!

  28. Daniel October 4, 2010

    Besides no one will give a crap about any of them… a few weeks after the show.. so people chill out.. its just a show.

  29. kizzy2400 October 4, 2010

    cheryl is the worst judge ever i really dont see why people like cher shes rubbish i cant believe she beat trayc

  30. Alex October 4, 2010

    Most of my favorites got through apart from Gamu. I liked Katie but she is nowhere near as good as Gamu, I was really pissed yesterday, also think that maybe Marlon should get through instead of Nicolo. I’m glod though that Matt, Aiden and Rebecca got through, hopefully the twist means Gamu will come back and I’ll have all my favs 🙂

  31. Carlz October 4, 2010

    @SIMON KAY how wrong are you i’ve met many white women who date ormarry black men but have no love for black woman, my nan for one who loves my granddad who is black but hates black people, so a person can very much still be racist and be married to a person of that race, a few years back a member of the BMP was found to have kept his wife secret for years as she was in fact black. just saying

  32. iandavidson October 4, 2010

    What a joke, Cheryl Cole has finally shown her true colours, a vicious little girl….how the f*** can 2 girls not actually complete an audition and 2/3 others who were note perfect not get through , the little lady from Zimbawe !!!!! but something tells me she may still win it !!!!

  33. Daniel October 4, 2010

    Cheryl hasnt just judged on the audition at the houses.. its from what they’ve done on teh whole, since the start. Cher is actuallty the most popular act.. getting the most youtube views.. so how can you not put her through? exctually!

    cher to win the xfactor!!!!!

  34. ~AalexisR~ The Summer King (The Bahamas) October 4, 2010

    I don’t think it was racist. I just think think it was a huge lapse in judgment.

  35. Alexxan October 4, 2010

    Marlon shld have been there he looks like a real pop star to me and he can sing as well Danni and cheryl needs to go and let real producers take their place as they have not got a clue

  36. Daniel October 4, 2010

    Cheryl has got a clue, she’s won the show with her acts for the past 2 years. I think she picked the correct 3 to go through. Its an entainment show as much as a singing show.

    Cher to win!!!

  37. who? October 5, 2010

    The only reason that Cher got so much attention was because she presented herself as a white girl with flavor. Unbeknownst to everyone at the time (including me), she swagger jacked her entire performance from Keri Hilson. Go check out youtube and Keri is almost wearing the exact same outfit and everything. That being said, her Coldplay aka Swizz Beatz cover of Coldplay sucked as well. And lastly, her performance at the house was atrocious and was not in the same league as TreyC, Gamu, or Keri. And don’t even get me started on Katie with the record contract, professional videos, and a contract with Sony BMG. Hmm.. a professional singer who can’t get through a live audition and she just so happens to be signed to the same label that employs Simon Cowell..I’m sure it’s just a coincidence. But to tell Gamu, who had three amazing performances, that she didn’t have star quality when you put through a douchebag who didn’t successfully complete one audition while she’s crying with fur eyelashes and a damn umbrella, is just pure bullsh*t. I hope the public takes their outrage out on Cher and Katie and votes them off in the first couple of shows.

  38. Daniel October 5, 2010

    Why should the public show outrage, by voting of cher and kate, what have they done wrong? why would you want there chance to be short lived, because of cheryl’s opinion. Thats not fair on them.
    What do you mean a white girl with flavor? is that something on black girls have? isnt that abit racist? This always happen a white girl tries to be that way.., oh your just trying to be black. etc.. but remember whos the most successful rap artist of all time.. eminem who is white. and rap is said to be a black’s music..
    so she copied the way keli hilson sang.. so what!! she can sing, thats for sure..

  39. mary October 5, 2010

    i tink cheryl shudnt have put threw katie shes really annoyn and a drama queen and the funny thing is cheryl saw dat herself but still put her threw… hopefully the twist is that katie is put ou and gamu shud have gotn threw… the same with danni she pu threw dat really freaky fella dat taut he was the bees knees wen she shud of pu threw one of the oda lads instead.. but all we can do now is wait for the twist on saturday night!!! katie better be gone ou on the first week 🙂
