Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I cannot think of a single finalist in UK X Factor who is of Asian descent, in any series, except Zayn from One Direction.

Not one soloist, at all, who has been Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Korean, Pakistani etc.

I know this is just a coincidence but I thought it was interesting and wondered if anyone else had ever noticed.

I certainly did.

But maybe it's because many Asians wouldn't bother applying?

I mean, there was that One Pound Fish man in the auditions (who has now been signed to Warner ) who could actually sing better than Rylan.

My inner massive JPop/KPop fan just made me twitch a little there until I saw the /troll at the end

It's like you said yourself though OP. It's just coincidence. Not really something I can say I've noticed purely because I haven't really looked for it.

The closest we've had was Charlie in Dannii's Judges Houses in Series 4 and Trucolorz who were too young to compete in Series 6 but who Louis allegedly planned to take forward to live shows in favour of Kandy Rain

So what you're saying is that there has NEVER been a finalist of asian decent... and then you are saying that there was a finalist of asian descent!

What's your point caller!?

Didn't think about Zayn until it was said but he's of Asian decent.
