Their clues as to who was winning are only clear with hindsight aren't they? Maybe they were clear at the time, if so I missed them.

I was referring to all the other signals though, all the staging and comments, eg they're sabotaging that one, no that one, no they don't care who wins etc.

Report George Bailey December 11, 2016 11:21 PM GMT
ok but in simple terms they spoke at the start of the show as though Saara was winning and then as the show (and vote) went on the comments switched...Cowell likes to be on message with his winner
Report timbuctooth December 11, 2016 11:24 PM GMT
With hindsight;

`Whateer happens...` to Matt, Saara`s winning
Then Cowell`s `you could do this`, he`s clearly closing
Then `whatever happens` to Saara, and Matt`s won. All so obvious...

Report timbuctooth December 11, 2016 11:34 PM GMT
I doubt I`m alone in having believed Saara was ahead from last night; therefore, the fact that there was no `it`s close`, or, `the lead`s changed`, had to be taken as `whoever was in front last night, still is. And it`s not even close!` Most unusual for them not to hype up the competitive state of affairs, although, again with hindsight, three-quarters of the way through, Sharon did say `it`s very close`, but I/we deemed it meaningless.

I think I'd disagree for two reasons:

1. The judges comments
2. No reason why the votes wouldn't be proportionally the same as during the semi given nothing had changed

Report Jack Bauer '24' December 11, 2016 11:44 PM GMT
