Who do you think the three acts are? Well judging by last night - I think it may be Tamera, Hannah and Luke. However, Simon has been a fan of the Sam C type act in the past .

Tamera and Rough Copy can do well as long as the latter don't have the life sucked out of them by crap song choices

He's probably talking about his desired 3 for the big final in Wembley.

I would be surprised if Luke and Rough Copy aren't in Simon's top 3.

I reckon he's talking about Tamera for her image before her voice, Hannah for her unique vocal and possibly Rough Copy for their ability to mould very well together as a group. Oh and they have decent voices too.

I'm surprised you haven't mentioned Tamera - the judges have been banging on about how she's the perfect popstar and is on the road to stardom etcetc.

I'm not so sure. We have Rhianna and Beyonce so no need for Tamera. And aren't Rough Copy too old to make it with what would be their target market (more JLS than Boyz II Men)?

Surely after the amount of series he has done etc one of the three wouldn't be Sam Bailey. How the heck would he market her?

I guess SuBo route beckons

I don't see kids as their target market tbh. JLS allowed themselves to sell out to be marketed as a kiddy group whereas I think RC would appeal to the late teen/early 20's market who like their music a bit more urban and edgy. That's if Gary doesn't continue to ruin them

Ah, but they done that with Laura White/Ella Henderson etc....I think Tamera is set up to be the "shock" exit, paving the way for one of the dark horses to take it.

Tamera Sam Bailey and Rough Copy
The first two, you got right, for different reasons. Rough copy, not on the radar, they won't even go far in the competition. Luke, would be the third, I suspect.

No David!

It's Tamera, Hannah and Rough Copy. Sam Bailey has no commercial potential at the moment. I liked Miss Dynamix but there's no way Simon's talking about because they've been horrific in the lives. And he already has 1D - why would he say Kingsland when the market is saturated with them. He didn't say that about Union J last year when they were better singers and better looking!

I don't think he had Sam Bailey in mind. Too old. Sorry.

Tamera, Sam C and Kingsland. It's not about who the public think has the best vocals, it's who Cowell thinks he can sell as a brand.
