Nicholas is not a dark horse he's one of the strong favourites already I actually think the dark horse is Luke Friend.

Nicholas is not the dark horse. A lot of people have him down as their outright winner and I'm pretty sure these same people will be the ones moaning when he flops like all the other male winners except James, who was edgier than the typical x factor male winner.

I think Rough Copy are the dark horses of this series or Luke Friend.

Hannah is the closest thing to a dark horse in this year's show

Lol, no.

Tamera, Hannah and Nicholas are the outright favourites to win. So I don't see how that makes Hannah a 'darkhorse'...

Yeah, Luke seems to be steadily building some sort of fanbase. I think he might last quite a while.

Based on my understanding...

Luke if he gets a good edit (I'd say he's getting an "average" edit).
Miss Dynamix if they get rid of SeSe and do well in their first show without her.
Hannah if only because Tamera is the reigning Queen of the Girls category, although I'd peg her as a contender.


Who were the dark horses from years ago?

None of them. If you know what to look for under the edits, it's pretty obvious who has the most talent by the 1st show.

I'd say Abi is the dark horse. If she can get her act together this week and stick to her strenghts from now on, she could definitely reach the later stages of the show.

Luke is the one who might spring a surprise - he is actually quite a likable lad even though I don't like his vocals

I'd say Luke is probably the dark horse this year, he's following a similar pattern to Marcus. Where to start he is not many peoples favourite but virtually nobody's least favourite. I think if he hangs around, as people favourites get voted out, he will pick up voters.

That reminds me of Paije "Little Lenny Henry" Richardson, who I thought would be in the bottom almost every week until Week 5 (when he did Outkast/The Monkees).

Well that's what I thought but I'd forgotten just how good at sabotaging their own show the producers really are.

Clear winner aside, I'd agree Luke Friend could do better than a lot of people think. Though looking at this thread, lots of people think that..

Really surprised so many people are saying Luke. In my opinion, he is the worst vocalist there and has been severely hyped up, and has been disappearing into the woodwork rather than coming out of it.

I think a group will be out next, then Luke and Abi will find themselves in the bottom 2.

Abi. If she can get her act together she will be amazing.

Abi. People are expecting her to be eliminated in the next few weeks. I think not.
