'They' are already talking about next year, saying that maybe simon will return and Tulisa and Gary could be out. Nichole, Simon is prepared to offer her more to stay if necessary. Didn't mention Louis but I guess he'd stay. No mention of not doing it.

I think the programme has run it's course, and can only get worse. Yes, it really has become a farce, and full of predictable cliches.
Time for a new contest, though what, I have no idea.

Any ideas, anybody?

That series had to be the worse Xfactor ever, it is well passed its day, the min they opened up the auditions like BGT the whole thing became a panto, I said as soon I say Christopher on it this year it was all false and a farse.

I agree with Leigh none of the finalist had a personality, Christopher was as fake as Tulisas tan, jerimine and his ever hunble act and James .... wiho one day may learn to smile :-D

and OMG the judges for pete sake, how many times did we have to hear Louis " your a great role model, your gunna sell thousand of records, the people love you, you have a great voice and great star quality " which means like Matt Candle before you after to night we'll never see you again. :-D

I loved James from the start, not just because he's from the North East, and has an amazing talent, but because he looks just like my eldest grandson.!
He is a bit different from the past winners, and I think he'll go much further. Looking forward to hearing some of his own material.. :-D

I must admit Ella was a natural , her voice can only get better where as James voice has a gravely, rock tone to it . and Jahmene's , well that came from no where to surprise us. What a shame Joy that you have to miss James.

we the chance toi meet james on wednesday
a friends in charge of promotions and invited us
but sadly we may be busy x :-( :-(


AnninGlos Report 11 Dec 2012 14:42

I preferred Jahmene's voice but I could see that James was probably more of a pop singer which is what the show is all about. But was amazed when Ella went out, her voice for her age, is really good.


Stephanie Report 11 Dec 2012 14:07

I didn't get James at first but still watched his progress as his family live in our village and he lived next along the coast in Saltburn. but as the time went on and he put down his guitar , I could see the change in him .Not that I voted for anyone but was glad he won (but had a soft spot for Jahmene)


JoyBoroAngel Report 10 Dec 2012 08:42

i was torn from the stsart between
james cause he is local and jahmene
give james his due he is a good singer :-D :-D

Have to agree, Ella is amazing - hopefully she'll get a record deal on her own talents,
Well done James - two totally different artistes - both amazing in their own way.
I hope Jahmene gets a record contract, gains even more confidence and highlights domestic abuse, and the help those who suffer from it (both female & male) should get.

StrayKitten Report 9 Dec 2012 22:00

PricklyHolly Report 9 Dec 2012 21:53

Love Jahmene............what an amazing voice!

But James Arthur..........WOW!!

He is incredible. He is right up there with the likes of James Morrison. I am soo pleased he won.

I can't wait to buy his first album.

Congratulations to both Jahmene and James.
