Please remember that for most of you, that is what you are and that is what you will remain.

Your mate Kye Sones is not on the tour and you are in no position to call the shots. Kye Sones was never as popular with the voting public as he is / was with you. He scraped by with the skin of his teeth week to week.

So please, drop your campaign to getkyeontour. It makes you all appear rather arrogant, granted loyal to your friendship, but arrogant nonetheless.

Good luck on the tour and in your future endeavours to forge a career in the dog eat dog world of the music industry. You may wish to add other strings to your bows.

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely and with respect,

Yeah_Jackie

P.S. Please try to demonstrate some professionalism on the tour and support your fellow ex X Factor contestant Christopher Maloney who will doubtless not receive the best of receptions.

Wasn't there a campaign to get Aiden on tour 2 years ago? I don't see the problem?

Anyway Chris has been confirmed for the tour now.

if they want Kye on tour surely he could replace Lucy (who has said she isn't going)

I think there was more of a case for Aiden as he was sacrified when he hadn't received the fewest votes in order to save La Weasel.

The producers can change the rules to accommodate whoever they want anyway. I would almost put a case for ALL of the finalists going on the tour as all of them will have one or two fans, even Carolynne!

This!

If everyone was on the tour, then there wouldn't need to be all this nonsense where a person is kept in the show for longer than they should be (Rylan being one example) simply so they'll make the tour.

I dont see nothing wrong with them wanting their friend to go on tour with them. Its not like they are saying get rid of someone else for him to go. ( As Chris is going )

So i dont see why people have a problem with them wanting it to happen. If anything the people not wanting them to support their friend are the nasty ones imo.

After all what the use of s friendship if you cant support your friend.

She was invited, but she confirmed on her twitter that she would not be touring with the other contestants because she would be doing her own tour.

There is no arrogance in wanting their friend on tour with them. Granted Christopher deserves his place undeniably.

The problem is that they've gone public with their campaign. It's one thing wanting their friend on the tour with them, but once you start involving the public, it becomes a different matter. I personally think Kye should have been in the line-up in the first place, with Lucy being invited as an addition, as there's a precident for adding an extra contestant or two to the line-up. However, there's something off about contestants launching their own campaign via twitter.

It would be ironic if their campaign resulted in either someone other than Kye being brought in to fill the spot or Kye being invited on the tour, and everyone else bar Chris, Jahmene and James being ditched in favour of a selection of contestants from previous series. As the saying goes, 'Be careful what you wish for'!

Only a fool would keep a campaign under wraps after all the more people behind it the better the support. So the best thing is to go public.

have an audience member replace chris every night they would mostlikely have more talent and be better looking as well and would be cheered and not boo'd every minute

then it can be argued that it's just natural for the other finalists to ask management to get kye as a replacement seeing his order in the elimination...

I'll second the opening post. They've annoyed me in the way they petitioned for Kye, especially as at the time the clear implication was to egg on the removal of Christopher (whose position was uncertain) and put his arch nemesis in his place.

It wouldn't be fair to impose Kye on the audience this way because he has no real popularity with the audience and it would automatically mean less performing time for the others they wished to see.

They ain't going on a smashing 18-24 holiday together, a tour of the Indonesian Islands. It's work, an XF tour where the paying public want to see the most popular acts, the ones they also paid to vote for, and Kye Sones isn't popular with the punters.

I'd love to call the contestant's bluff on this if I was in charge. I'd tell them okay, there's only x amount of money to pay people on the tour so if you want Kye here you'll each have to take a 15% dip in pay. See how strong this universal loyalty is then.

Oh give over

Chris place was uncertain because of his own action So if he didnt have a place it was his own fault.

And so what if they campaigned for Kye to be there, after all it looked like there was going to be a slot to be filled anyway. Because of Chris and his actions.

So trying to blame it all on the others is just petty, they didnt make Chris do what he did, he did that all on his own.

I'm no fan of Christopher, but I'd support his right to be on the tour to my last XF post, and even though I'm sure he is an annoying and demanding person to be around I couldn't agree that his problem have been entirely of his own making, as you suppose.

But, how his place came to be uncertain is irrelevant to the subject at hand. It's about how the others went about campaigning for his replacement ahead of any decision being made, which sought to put pressure on the decision makers.

I also support anyone's right to be on the tour but when said person put his/her place in jeopardy because of their behavior then that right goes out of the window. After all its a job not a holiday so like any job if you dont do what is expected of you then dont be to surprised if you get fired.

As for problem have been entirely of his own making, No the whole problem was not of his own making. But his action was his own therefore he is the one to blame for them.

how his place came to be uncertain is irrelevant
No it is not irrelevant as there wouldnt have been a campaign going on if it didnt happen.

And as for them going about a replacement ahead of any decision being made, there is nothing wrong in that they wanted their friend and was in support for their friend. Its does not mean they was going to get what they wanted it just means they was showing support for someone they cared about if said place came available. And like I said before what the use of s friendship if you cant support your friend.

sought to put pressure on the decision makers.
Plz give me a break its the XF we on about and the acts are the puppets not the bosses. And only a fool would think the acts had so much control to do something like that.
