The X Factor finalists were chosen last night, and as Mary Byrne got her marching orders over that blinking Cher Lloyd, the rumours that the show is a ll a big fix are rife once again.
Drespite Mary really giving it her all in the sing-off, the judges opted to save mouthy Cher after she put the waterworks on during her cover of Britney’s “Everytime”. Only one problem hereâ€¦ the TV listings stated that the act with the fewest public votes would be sent home. Clearly not.
Apparently the show bosses decided at the very last minute that there would be a sing-off between the bottom two acts, so Dannii, Simon and Cheryl all voted to save Cher. Convenient much?
A spokesperson for the show commented, â€œAs the show evolves there are always changes in format.â€ What do YOU think? Does Cher even deserve to be in the final?
