They have apprantly been in the lead with Diana and Owen.
Had the next big fanbase after Diana on facebook. And lots of views on Youtube.

There song tonight wasn't bad and all the teenage girls love them.

So why were they in the bottom two ? :S

I was really shocked.

Is it down to how Louis behaved ?

Because they were quite bland and didn't get the get out of jail free backing vocals that Wavey Hands and Eggnog got.

Also, with 4 Saturdays to go and less to chose from, the floating voters/people that don't usually vote start to, so the numbers all change.

I cringed through 'a million love songs', so I wasn't surprised that they were in the bottom two.

I'm going to be cheesy, but they don't have that likeable X factor and others on the show do.

Ruth, for example. is becoming more likeable as people get to know her better- and in they end no-one will care about her nationality.

If she delivers she can win.

I think JLS are beat on personality.

I'm a JLS fan (sadly can't vote as I'm at work Saturday nights and watch the show after 11pm) but this week I thought they'd be bottom 2.

I dislike Diana but she obviously has a huge fan base.

Eoghan - ditto (though I don't dislike him as much).

Alexandra - was great and judges bigged her up

Ruth - ditto

So even though JLS were good, they were not amazing. It's hard at this stage. I know I would never vote for Diana, would vote for Eoghan only if he was against Diana... but the other three? I love them all... it's getting tough.

I personally think they are likeable enough. I like them anyway. But I don't think they're great singers. That doesn't explain why they were in the bottom two though. I was suprised and expected Ruth and Rachel, with Rachel going.

Eoghan and Diana should have been bottom two based on performance, but it doesn;t work like that, as is proven week in week out.

They didn't perform very well and the song didn't seem to suit them.

I think they were in the bottom 2 for a couple of reasons.

A) like the judges said, they had the biggest comparison tonight.
B) Not a great song for them to sing, and apparently there was abit of a mis-hap with their song choice this week which meant they only had 24 hours to reherse.
C) I think that like Cheryl said, their spark was missing, was IMO 1 of their best vocals but their wasn't the usual JLS energy, i know you cant give energy in the true sense of the word to a slow song but i think their performance seemed abit dead.

I think they'll be back stronger next week, don't know if they will avoid the bottom 2 but IMO they have the 2nd most potential to sell records out of all of the acts left in the competition, so i hope they do raise their game.

It was no big shock to me, boybands never do that well, only Eaton road ever made it this far and they also landed in the bottom two at this stage in there series.

It seems pretty obvious Diana and Eoghan are polling the most votes although the story Jls were easily ahead of the rest always seemed a little unlikely to me, i suspect its been close between them and Alex the past few weeks and tonight she outperformed/sang them as did Ruth so its no shocker they were bottom two considering only four acts could be safe.

Goodness knows, but it was a long time coming. Lets hope they are gone for good next week.

Because they obviously don't have as much of a fan base that we all thought and that we shouldn't believe everything we read, especially with the voting scandal saying "There's NO way anyone can touch these three" which has proven tonight to be a load of sh!t

they were not up to their usual standard.

they should have done 'rule the world' but that didn't happen.

perhaps they will be better next week.

Is it down to how Louis behaved ?
To be exact, only one could be in the lead, they may indeed have been third and then not appealed to the masses tonight. On the whole, the girls are far too strong for them to compete.

I have to say with JLS something was missing tonight. We know that their song choice was changed in the last 24 hours and their other choice was Back for Good. I sense their had been a disagreement within the group. It happens though. Lets see how they are next week.

I have been saying for weeks that the voting is a lot closer than anyone thinks.
I posted a poll which is done for a couple of the leading bookmakers, that showed JLS were trailing Ruth. This week they were poor, not as bad as Eoghan who should also have been in the sing-off, but worse than Rachel.
I had bet on them going this week @ 8-1...close but no cigar.
