I've been tipped the wink by my source in Ghana that these 2 likable lads have made the Judges House stage.

Currently trading 40+ on betfair,they are the only act in the competition likely to add any fun or vigour to the live shows,and as such I'm hopeful they are allowed to progress.

On my tissue they are 4/6 to make the lives,and 16/1 when through so 40+ represents a value punt.

I'm Ghana be rich Cool

Just caught up.

Locked Away confirmed for the first of the lads songs,sounds like the latter one will be the usual feelgood / big production number.

I really like Locked Away as their first choice (180 million YouTube views in such a short space of time show the songs popularity ).....it will showcase a different side to them which TBH is needed at this stage.I'd expect the preceding  VT to heavily feature their wives and the song dedicated to them.

Good also to finish on the big  traditional RnB style number .....I'm actually feeling quite confident about this weekend Cool

It's Ghana be an exciting week leading up to the final Grin

Che obviously irrelevant in the final,leaving it as expected as a H2H between the only two acts who haven't hit B2 all series ....RnB v Louisa.

The market seems very unlikely to take RnB's chances seriously,and therefore I'll probably be forced into being level on Louisa & jackpot green on RnB come next weekend.

Pretty sure RnB are going to go down a storm in the arena atmosphere of Wembley next weekend.....and I'm hopeful this transfers through to the TV voting audience.

Hoping they reprise the 1D mash up of Shut up and Dance/ What makes you Beautiful or failing that this weekend's I gotta Feeling / I like to Move it Move it........duet partner will be interesting and perhaps give an idea of whether they are going to be allowed an opportunity to win.

However it turns out,it's been a good craic throughout all these weeks.......and for the moment anyway,the jackpot dream lives on.

Well considering Vicky managed to win IAC (because of the app voting- no way the old phone voters would have wanted her to win especially after Ferne doing that eating Trial) I think this proves that the under 35's  are going to determine this year's winner of X Factor.With Reggie & Bollie and Louisa equal on Twitter but Reggie and Bollie clearly leading on Facebook (by 2812 likes to Louisa 1540 likes) it's clear the under 35's prefer R&B. So at the odds (5.2/1) R& B are huge value.

God help up bettors- after that IAC result (must have been mainly youngsters voting because of the app voting) .


[If Reggie & Bollie and Louisa are Final 2 - neither have been in bottom 2 before]
So with regards to X Factor, we've got menopausal (I couldn't spell ?neurotic) young women,  deciding between a staid, pretty 17 year old with an old-fashioned voice (who they might be jealous of) and 2 good-looking blokes (in my girlfriends opinion) who are full of energy and quite current.

Now who might they vote for?

The only reason Reggie and Bollie have been allowed to get to the final is to ensure that Louisa wins..

They are absolutely threat to their golden girl

you lot who actually believe that they could actually win are clearly deluded.

ask yourselves this.. if they really bad a realistic chance of winning then are they 5-1 and why Louisa as low as 1-7

thinking that they could win because they have more facebook likes is really clutching at straws

Negatives:

They favoured RnB over 4th Impact because they feared millions of app votes from the Far East would mean their chosen one being beaten in the final and there would have been issues with cancelling votes from abroad etc. Now it's a walkover.

Very amusing to see posters like bardo and Jack come on this thread to run RnB down.

bardo has suddenly appeared on the XF topics from Saturday when Lou was approx 1.4 to win.....really insightful and fantastic tipping sir,take a bow Plain

Jack has continuously been against RnB since the start,calling 4th Impact as the alpha/top group,and now they have been eliminated suggests it was some kind of voting irregularity to stop a Far East bloc vote Laugh.....what happened when they got eliminated then ? Why didn't the Far East vote get them through ? You think cancelling a Far East vote in the week they went out is less detectable than cancelling it in a final ? Absolute rubbish.

It's been a great ride on the Go-Kart and anyone who got on early has the opportunity to cash out now at a nice profit.

Good luck to the nay sayers who are saying they won't win.....you're basically tipping up a 1/7 shot.....real neck on the line stuff.

I didn't call them the alpha group at any stage. That is simply incorrect. I made one post on this thread saying Cowell would be silly to favour RnB over 4th Impact as they would have commercial potential in the Far East.

RnB have no long term commercial potential other than short term success as a novelty act, imo. It is my belief that Cowell was afraid that had 4 Impact got to the final with all the media attention and hype in the Far East that would have subsequently followed, they would have posed a much bigger threat to Louisa so he decided to back RnB as top group instead to guarantee victory for the chosen one.

It's a forum....we are all entitled to our opinions and we are never always going to agree.

My original problem this evening was that bardo posted that anyone thinking RnB could win was "clearly deluded" ....I responded to that post.I was then ironically accused of shouting people down....precisely what that post had done.
