Scott Bruton
Daniel Evans
Christopher Maloney
Frankie Cocozza
Rylan Clark
JonJo Kerr
Sami Brookes
Rikki Loney
Leon Jackson
Daniel DeBourgh
Andy Williams
Verity Keays
Kye Sones
Lloyd Daniels

All very average singers with no star quality... in my opinion, with the exception of Frankie and Rylan because they were fame-hungry.

James Arthur, Diana Vickers, Aiden Grimshaw, Danyl Johnson.

I may have said these names before but I can't reiterate enough. I am also in total agreement with Christopher MAloney as well.

I'd have to agree with adding Cher and Katie too, their Judges' Houses performances were abysmal. But I suppose Cher is proving successful, so maybe it was the right decision after all.

I'll add Giles, from this year.

Aiden Grimshaw on name alone. You don't have a popstar called Grimshaw. You have a character from Charles Dickens.

katie W
Cher lloyd
for the simple reason that they blew the judges house audition and there were far better singers on the day. when it came down to it, none of that mattered and they were put through anyway

The Ethan decision was extremely curious : I remember Louis's assistant Liam McKenna saying he was the best singer of all at bootcamp.

Both of them were earmarked for the live shows by the producers.

Katie Waissel had an American record contract and wasn't even eligible to enter XF, was still signed to the label even after Judges House and had to be bought out of her contract by the show.

Porbably thought Ethan would take teenager votes from Joe/Lloyd. I liked Joe and Ethan but never really got the whole lloyd thing..

ah yes lucy spraggan - that novelty had worn off well before the judges houses. it was the wrong show for her and, after the initial shes different perspective, it quickly became apparent that she was a one trick pony who couldnt sing particulalry well.

when all is said and done, genuine acts really must shake their heads when they lose out to the likes of rylan, jedward, frankie etc

Gold Digger and Titanium suggested otherwise. That she could sing perfectly well, just in a folk music style. She was in no way a one trick pony and those two performances proved it.
