The final was on Sunday 31st May, starting at 19:30, finishing 22:00, with 12 acts. Just like last year, the voting window was only open for 20 minutes, starting at 21:17

Running order (with finishing position) and last price matched:

Entity Allstars   (11th)   1000

adverts (Ant 'n Dec said UDI were up next)

UDI   (10th)   790

adverts (A&D said Neales & Boyband were next)

The Neales   (9th)   540
Boyband   (12th)   1000

adverts (A&D said Jessi & Calum were next)

Jesse-Jane McParland   (8th)   420
Danny Posthill   (7th)   980
Calum Scott   (6th)   60

adverts (A&D said Cors next)

Cor Glanaethwy   (3rd)   3.15

adverts (A&D said Jamie & Isaac were next)

Old Men Grooving   (4th)   80
Jamie Raven   (2nd)   6
Isaac Waddington   (5th)   65

adverts

Jules O'Dywer and Matisse   (1st)   1.95


As you can see, Ant & Dec's announcement of who were up next was a bit misleading at times

Standing Ovations - All 4 judges stood up the Entity Allstars. The next time anyone stood up was for Calum Scott, when they all did apart from Simon. The 5 remaining acts afterwards had all 4 judges standing up every time (well sort of for Jamie)

99k was matched at 17:30, 106k at 18:30, 118k at 19:25, 144k at 19:57, 188k at 20:24, 216k at 20:34, 281k at 20:58, 302k at 21:07, 327k at 21:17 (lines opened), 363k at 21:27, £398,802 final amount matched at suspension

It was announced there had been 4.5 mil votes


At 18:30, Cors were around 2.5, Calum had shortened to 2.9, Jules drifted to 12.5 and Jamie was in the 40s

At 19:25m Cors 2.2s, Calum 2.8s, Jules 13, Jamie 40

At the start of the show, the acts in the final were shown in semi final order. Some people briefly thought this was the order they would perform in, with the Cors on second, causing them to drift to 2.4s whilst Calum shortened to his low matched of 2.34

At 19:57, just as The Neales were starting to sing, Cors had just hit Evs, Calum 2.7, Jules 17, Isaac 21, Jamie 38

At 20:11, when Calum was announced as coming up (after Boyband had performed), he drifted from 3s to mid 4s with Cors going to 1.6s. Jules 12, Isaac 15, Jamie 40

At 20:24, when Calum wasn't next on (as after Jesse, Danny was next), he then shortened to 3.3 with Cors drifting to 1.8s. After Danny, when Calum WAS next, he then drifted to 4s again. Cors back to 1.6s

At 20:29, just after Calum had sung (and forget his words), he was 8s. Cors 1.4s, Jules 10, Isaac 10, Jamie 36

At 20:34, when the Cors were announced as next, they drifted from a low matched of 1.38 to high 1.6s. Calum 9s, Jules 9s, Isaac 6s, Jamie 20s

At 20:41, just after Cors had sung, they were mid 1.6s

At 20:58, just after Jamie had performed, Cors were 1.5s, Calum 14, Jules 9s, Isaac 10, Jamie 15, When Old Men Grooving were performing (after Cors, before Jamie) they had drifted to 200 but during the judges positive comments they shorted to 30s and 40s, then continued to shorten for a few minutes. They were in the 20s at this stage, and went even shorter, before gradually drifting back out

At 21:03, after Isaac had sung, Cors were 1.7s, Calum near 20, Jules 7s, Isaac 12, Jamie into 7s, Groovers high 20s

At 21:07, just before Jules performed, Cors 1.8, Calum 26, Jules 6s, Isaac 12, Jamie 6s, OMG 50

At 21:15, immediately after Jules had performed, Cors 2.3s, Jules 4s, Jamie 6s. 2 minutes later, Cors 2.5, Jules 3.1, Jamie 5.5

At 21:27, Jules had gone fav and was nearing Evs. Cors 3.2, Jamie 7s, Isaac 30s, Calum 55, OMG 70

In the 10 minutes after this, before lines suspended, Jules shortened to a low of 1.71 before drifting back out the just under Evs

Conclusion - forget wasting hours and hours of your life watching the 7 audition shows, forget spending a whole week watching the live semis, forget struggling to get bets on, forget reading articles about the show, ignore price moves in the market, just tune in 90 minutes into the final, see who's on last, and back them Happy


Top 3 - during the day of the final, the Cors were trading around 1.15, Calum matched plenty in the 1.2s plus £113 at 1.15 & £200 at 1.14, Jules getting matched between 1.8 and 2.2, Isaac in the 3s and Jamie in the 6s

Horse, what can we say? Fully understand your frustrations, but very sad news, your excellent work will be MUCH missed. Can`t tell you the number of times I refer back to your threads and, having tried to do it myself once or twice, I very much doubt that anyone who hasn`t done it will have any idea how much time and work it involves. Or the pressure of remembering to note everything, during the heat of the battle.

As MPC's VT started, they were 1.59 but quickly drifted out to 2.74 when singing (Daliso 2). MPC hit 3.1 when finishing, Daliso 1.7 matched
During the judges critic of MPC both they and Daliso were in the 2s. During the ads after the judges MPC briefly went fav again, 1.8s & 1.9s, Daliso low 2s before they then flip-flopped again

It's the morning of the final (which was supposed to be Sunday night, 2 days after the last semi but has been brought forward a day so it doesn't clash with the Manchester bombing concert)
We are awaiting news of one wildcard, picked by the judges from (we think) the 3rd place finishers, but it's expected to be Sarah (well, the market says)

3.35 - 3.55   Tokio Myers  (2 acts into last night's show he hit 3.1, £380 matched at 2.7 between the shows, 3.2 at last night's suspension)
3.55 - 4.2   Daliso Chaponda  (6 matched after performing then went shorter, 4 matched after MPC had sung, then 3s. Lowest matched 3.05)
7.4 - 8   Missing People Choir*  (2 acts into last night's show they had drifted to 3.25 - 3.7, matched at 10.5 after singing, £20 matched at 14.5 but then settled 8s or so)
9 - 12   Issy Simpson
10.5 - 11.5   The Pensionalities
14 - 17   Sarah Ikumu   (21 matched around 7pm but then shortened again)
18.5 - 20   DNA
36 - 80   Kyle Tomlinson
40 - 65   Ned Woodman
60 - 190   MerseyGirls (Just Us)
85 - 100   Matt Edwards
(Miss Treat Vibe 120 to back, Grace and Ali 400, everyone else 1000)

Jamie Lee Harrison had £100 matched at 12 when/after singing before drifting back out
