I did wonder if they'd keep it as it would be the only they could ditch Maloney pre-final (if he ended up in the bottom two of course which isn't guaranteed).

More evidence in support of the theory that they actually don't want rid of Chris Maloney after all. He is the only one the media are interested in (regardless of the fact that their coverage is negative) and is perhaps making them a fortune in votes (both for Chris and possibly against)

Doesn't this help the big M? If he was second lowest on the votes and in the sing off then the judges would follow Syco orders and get rid of him. If he's second bottom now, he's in the final?

(Although he's apparently won every week so far anyway - not sure how!)

Not necessarily, I think UJ have a bigger chance of being safe now. James is at risk.

I prefer it this way, I'm actually one of the few who enjoy deadlock as I feel its the fairest way. Fans can't really blame anyone but themselves then when their fave goes in this situation.

James will be fine Union J have been bottom 2 3 times now so they obviously don't have as big as a fanbase as the other 3 .

Until they find that Union J is actually bottom and announce a last minute sing off in order to eliminate Chris. You know it's going to happen.

Baloney is probably so far ahead in the voting that they don't even wanna bother trying to get rid of him via the sing-off

Yep - under Cowell's reasoning they should be gone for " obviously not connecting with the public"

Pretty convinced these walking haircuts have been polling very low since week 1

They also said this in 2010 and look what happened then.

Wouldn't trust them at all.

By getting more votes than any of the others.

I think UJ are more safe this way than with a SO - they could potentially get a vote bump to reach the final ahead of James

Hopefully itll be Chris though

Yes, but I, too, am not sure how he's getting the votes. Of course you are correct he's getting more votes and I agree with your inane smilie grin. It is inane how he's getting the votes. Maybe there's something in the water?

Unless of course the person with the least votes is James or Jahmene.

Maybe many people feel, as I do, that the talent is poor but that Chris is the best of a duff bunch. He is the most accomplished singer (in a very ropey field), works hard and has dealt admirably with outrageous abuse. In the absence of outstanding talent, he's well worthy of votes and of winning the competition, though I don't think he will win it.

I agree with you, Christopher DOES deserve to win the competition.

Although possibly not in the same way as you're intending.

Agreed but will be better for him if he doesn't win

They will do whatever they want at any time to get what they want and can legally get away with it.

It's more corrupt than an election in Nigeria!

Maybe they see no point in a sing off as they will know the voting figures and may understand that they have no chance of getting rid of Chris. So they are just going to leave the rest up to the GBP.

I really think it depends who pulls it out of the bag on Saturday... I do think UJ and James are at risk though.
