“[Nicole] didn't do this out of spite,” said Simon. “What she was trying to do was to let Marcus [Canty] go with some dignity. No question, if she knew Rachel was going to be in the bottom, she would've gone the other way.”

So there we have it. Cowell admitting that the PV means jacksh1t. And for proof see this year's XF results. Interesting also is his belief that being bottom of the public vote is going with dignity. What a scumbag he is.

What are the experts' views on the final of this? I ask cos I have final leg of treble going on Amaro (at Evens) for a very nice 3-figure profit but I watched semi-final last week and I thought she came across as very arrogant - while Cowell was trying to talk to her, she was gesturing and talking to someone in the crowd.
I'm not sure she is such a good thing - clearly Josh is very decent and I wouldn't discount Chris either - as I wonder if his sound and image might be perfect for country-loving Yanks.
Basically, the question is, whether to hedge on the other 2, to ensure profit regardless of who wins. I would tend to do this anyway cos it's wise to play it safe in the long run.

I've got Chris Rene at 20/1. I only bet on him becuase I genuinely liked watching him and he was the main reason I started watching the show but now I really feel he could win it. Whatever happens it was a great show this year.
Report George Bailey December 19, 2011 7:36 PM GMT
Hi yazza. I agree re Chris. Couldn't get interested this year but decided to have a look at the final 3 last night. Possibly the most fascinating final 3 in specials betting.  I originally saw Chris as tattooed druggie who would get nowhere with a ring wing idol type audience. I was wrong. He is without doubt for me the most original talent ever to come from one of these shows. he's not the best singer by any means and he struggles doing cover versions but boy when he does his own material he's brilliant. he plays guitar and piano well too.  If Lee De Wyze can win AI why can't Chris win this? The fact that Drew went early suggests this ain't right wing Rebublican audiences. Chris is charismatic and good looking with a fantastic back story. Women like him. The fav Melanie is a good singer BUT lacks character, her performances are samey, she is perceived as arrogant, she is a fake in that halfway through she dropped her false accent and life history. From Nicole and Paula's response I sense women's don't much like her. Josh is definitely in the hunt. Guys historically have the advantage with these things. Look at AGT this year very similar to Chris. Bottom line is Chris doesn't have the best voice, he's a bit marmite but my goodness he definitely has the X Factor. backed him at 7/1 last night and have laid Melanie. I think the true odds are much closer. Might all come down to if they let Chris sing on eof his own songs...2/1 shot if they do. Do they sing only one song in the final?? Anyone got a link for it?

At the current odds on here I can trade of my melanie lay and chris back for a small profit...but that would be the sensible thing to do....

Don't think so too different. More like melanie and josh who are the "proper" vocalists. If this was AI melanie would be 1.1...but there again if this was AI chris and probably josh wouldn't be in the final three.  No doubt it will revert to type and melanie the high note diva will win. If chris with his occupy wall street tee shirt, drug issues and tats wins I will have to reappraise americans. Duets could be interesting...Bieber?

The X Factor's judges promised "superstar duets" during their Monday press conference, and they have delivered. This afternoon, the show revealed this evening's lineup of guests who will sing with the final three contestants. Hip-hop crooner Chris Rene will perform with Avril Lavigne, rock favorite Josh Krajcik will be paired with Alanis Morissette, and soul belter Melanie Amaro (who won Monday's draw and will close the show) will be joined by R.

Not what I was seeing fll. I did twitter a few ways e.g. put names in 2 separate searches at the same time. This had a lot more responses for melanie. Of those 90%+ were for her to win. Of chris' I'd say up to 50% were saying they would never watch it again if he won, can't sing etc etc. Or just watching the trends on *xfactor had her leading easily. More positivity for josh than chris. He was a marmite act that got further than most do so good for him. Definitely the one most with the XF and then josh and then yawny diva.
