I agree.


Michelle, if you don't like James, we understand but why not focus on the artists you do like instead.
I don't think Michelle likes anyone from the show lol

What on earth is James doing so close to #1 on Switzerland's iTunes?

Look at Switzerland on this site: http://kworb.net/popch/ and you'll see he's just 6.25% away from knocking will.i.am and Britney from #1.. 24 hours ago he was 21.88% away.

Got a feelingn his debut album is going to be not only the most successful male artist but the most successful winner ever. I think he's gonna overtake leona Lewis.

I really doubt it, mate. Leona has real powerful beautiful voice while he has howling voice and subjective beauty.

All I can say is:

1. You have a Crystal Ball.
2. You are his publicist.

If it is 1 above, can you tell me what the winning lottery numbers are going to be tonight?

Oh please Michelle. He's going to do amazingly. Better than your Chris Maloney (where are his 'dozens of record deals'?)

Still doing very well, many winners have dropped down to the 40s, 50s and one the low 60s by now.

But no guarantee of future lasting success - as can be seen from the list above which reads like a 'Where Are They Now?' list.

Shayne's in a Dancing on Ice show after 2 hit albums, yes dropped by Syco but he's still around.

Matt's still around still signed still performing, 2 albums now both in the top 10.

Joe's still around still around with 3 top ten albums.

LM are still doing well, Leona is too. Why people think Leona's flopped is beyond me...just because one single didn't chart?

Alex is making music.

Leon and Steve have flopped yes, but the only ones.

Don't understand the perception that if someone isn't heard of in the news or isn't coming consistently number 1 that they're necessarily doing badly.

They're not like Rihanna, Beyonce, Mariah and Adele no (Leona's the closest but c'mon she's still doing alright). Does not being a global sensation mean they've flopped? Does that mean they've done badly? Does that mean they're not talented? No, no and no.

Tired of the echo in here.

From the OCC: "Impossible" sold 26,568 for a total of 1,077,865. Getting closer and closer to Shayne! Could he surpass Alexandra?
