X factor is all about marketability and she could sell a lot of records, concerts etc. so in order to find a success story for the series with global Marketability tamera may be the only option. Thoughts ??

No. To be honest, I think she's this years Ella... "You're going to be a world wide star," etc...Gary the only one to dare give her critique at first, I think she's not doing as well as they thought in the voting to be honest. She has a great voice but I can't see the public taking to her as a personality.

It's not about who wins it's about what material they get, how they're marketed etc...If they'd given Joe better material or marketed Matt more, they'd have had slightly better careers with SyCo.

Personally I think of quite a few acts that could win instead now.

They need her to go far (i.e. to the final), but a win would be better.

LOL Tamera is NOTHING like Ella. Abi is this years Ella. No personality nor charisma.

Tamera can work a stage, she's completely different to Ella. Gary has always given praise to Tamera, it was just last week her rendition of "Listen" sounded a bit copycat. Other than that he has always said good things. So what are you talking about?

It's because she's pretty and confident. Of course the public don't like that. But when the show ends, we'll see who's still successful

I hope you buy her album if she releases one. So sick of these people who rave on about Sam B, she's just cannon fodder. An over with the big voice, but outside of the show she wouldn't have a place in the market.

I don't care if you can't stand Tamera, a lot of others couldn't stand Cher Lloyd yet she's done really well for herself. Where is Mary Byrne that you people all loved? No where.

You still never replied to my post where you accused myself and other posters of having a problem with, to quote you, "confident _____ girls"

One suspected you were accusing us of racism with your missing word. Until you answer that question, I am not going to debate with you.

Agreed Barry!

The voting public have no sense when it comes to who will sell records in the real world.

Missing word? You knew exactly what I meant

I wasn't accusing you of racism, I just said it was a common thing with the public.

I don't think so. She's not good enough. She certainly has the look - no doubt about that - but her voice is a bit lacking.

I know. It's not a good thing, though.

You asked if I disliked her because she was confident then you said British people have a problem with confident ____ girls. Implying that I had a problem with her for this reason. It's not a direct accusation but it's a very serious and rude thing to imply, just because someone has a different opinion on your favourite.

And no I wouldn't have automatically known what you meant, I thought it best to ask rather than jump to conclusions. I don't take to her personality, nothing to do with looks or confidence.

Let's just leave it at that and resolve to ignore each other. You've said your piece and I've said mine.

For me I think the 3 who could have career longeivty after the show selling records is Tamera, Rough Copy and Luke Friend. I just can' see Nicholas or Sam Bailey making creative and interesting records which people would want to buy in the long term

I agree with you there on all of this except Luke Friend unfortunately . I don't think he will last long.

The reason I picked Luke is I have saw what he has done before X Factor, and see he is a great song writer. Also he has the ability of taking the song and making it his own (very important). Take a look at this. If he is allowed to continue in growing in confidence we may see more performances like this.

I looked at the link and no still does absolutely nothing for me. Just not my thing at all. His voice is very grating to me. I am sure this is the type of artist for some but for me no.
