X Factor voting results revealed Watch

    • Thread Starter

    The week-by-week voting results of ‘The X Factor’ have been revealed – and there are some big surprises.

    While Matt Cardle was rightly the favourite as he led the voting every week except the first live round (which was won by Mary Byrne), Simon’s boyband One Direction were never in the top two at all.

    Mary could feel aggrieved after the votes prove that she would have been in the final if, like last year, the finalists were decided by the public votes alone. In the semi-final she won 14.99% of the vote to Cher’s 11.57%. The rules were changed so she had to go into the sing-off and the judges decided not to keep her in.

    Two of the least popular contestants won more votes than expected - Wagner grew in popularity through the series and narrowly missed out on a spot in the semi-finals. And Katie Waissel even finished second in the week before she was voted out.

    Here are the results in full.

    So had the decision been down to the votes not the judges, Cher would have gone instead of Mary Byrne.
    :facepalm: What a calamity!

    So that fag love song singin guy won then?

    OH my word!

    Why would they publish that they favoured Katie & Cher (Paige, Mary) when they were the most unpopular in the weeks they were saved?
