I'm so surprised he didn't make it! Compared to Sam, Giles and Alejandro (I know he got knocked out) he was so much better

i must be the only person on DS who thought he was horrendous.. i actually thought he was a novelty act along the same lines as the yoddle fella...
If he had a different image i doubt he would have even made the edits...

Is he the one who sounded like he was having an asthma attack?

He was a bit rubbish but I'd still prefer him to the one with the awful hair.

Yeh, I thought he was good. I'm surprised he didn't go further. Would have been another one for the young girls. They're loving him.

His voice was sooo affected. It was like he was singing in a weird accent. Why do people do this these days? Just sing normally!

His voice was incredibly annoying and affected but as you're a Diana Vickers fan I understand why you liked him

I disagree, he's good looking but his voice was actually horrendous. He took breathy to a new extreme, he literally took a breath after every word and it was actually really unpleasant to listen to.

I thought he was the worst act I'd seen in the entire contest, including joke acts. His weird mannerisms were beyond annoying.

Quite dreadful! And those are the kindest two words I can say about him.

He was awful. Weak, sissy, girly, ashthma-esque voice. Just utterly terrible. He took the no with dignity though il give him that.

The mistake was never the putting the yodeller through.

Yes, hilarious entertainment value and the perfect joke act.

And he was talented!

I can't cope with some people on this forum. It's like negativity central just because of what you know about your favourite, you have to take it out and insult every other act on the show.


Tom was the best this year and the fact he almost had as many followers on twitter with his 30 second montaged auditions than the likes of Melanie/Tamera with full auditions shows a lot imo.

He would've done super well had he gone through, and I predict great things from him in the future!

I think the fact he has the most followers out of all the boys on Twitter must say something! I haven't looked at any of the other contestants but he's probably beating them too!

Personally I thought his performance on Sunday was awful.

Yes - exactly my thoughts. Couldn't have listened to him wheezing his way through the live shows. I'd have rathered listen to the yodeller!

In your opinion he was the best, but really, his breathlessness made him hard for me to listen to. I watched it with friends and we were all totally bemused. He needs to learn how to breathe properly if he's ever to make it as a real singer.

I agree there are so many negative people on this forum, some are willing to insult every other act other than their favorite. I don't particularly rate Melanie or Tamara but you don't see my insulting them at every given opportunity because they can actually sing.

I wanted Tom to get through because that voice is unique and original and he can sing. Is that not the point? Is that not what the XF promotes - originality?
