Well, it wouldn't be entirely surprising if true. The hype is strong. But a link here would be useful. Or even *which* tabloid...

I disagree. It's the first year that the hype Sam B is getting has been made by her performances, and not the producers - as it failed for Tamera.

It's not pimping if this comes out either, as people could assume she is safe.

They're telling people to keep on voting at the bottom.

Yeah, for charity. Not because of her.

It's underneath a big picture of her declaring her triumphant. The clear implication is 'keep voting for her'. It's essentially the same sort of tactic they've used to try influence their readers to vote for Cameron etc.

Christopher Maloney and Eoghan Quigg topped the votes consistently in their series, but they didn't win.

As late as Week 7, Eoghan was pulling 31% of the votes, and Christopher topped the vote every week from 1 to 7. Sam is not guaranteed a win as The Sun are suggesting.

So, a front page that can make people think she is being pimped and people being told to vote her is good publicity? Surely the chance of a backlash would clearly show it's not pimping?

Difference was, neither of them were the best vocally. Sam B is. And, they weren't topping the vote based on their performances in the show, Sam B is.

It could even be a desperate attempt by the producers to sabotage her.....perhaps they are the source of the story.

The Sun claiming she's unbeatable...

This could all be a controlled press leak to make her fans complacent and leverage one of the more marketable acts into the lead.

It almost certainly will be. I doubt it will work as Tamera and Hannah have been bottom 2. Sam C will be gone soon. Which leaves RC, Nicholas and Sam B.

The only one who has a hope is Nicholas, and he's even less suited to selling chart topping records than she is.

Rough Copy will come second or third but I think they're likely to be the ones who release the most commercially successful music at the end of it.

Definitely : there's no way they want Sam to win and would try every dirty trick in the book to stop her.

I tend to take stuff The Sun says with a pinch of salt, but I hope this is true. Sam B can actually sing, unlike to many of the joke acts that appear on this show.

Not even watching this shitty show anymore, but if Sam B won, I'd be happy about that.
