The X Factor Fix?
The papers have gone overboard again. It’s all about Diana Vickers. Is she seeing Eoghan? But isn’t he 10-years-old really? Do the judges want her to win? Are they deliberately steering the show towards a win for the hippy chick?
If we believe the whispers, the winner’s single has been chosen, and it’s Hallelujah. This just happens to be a song that Diana picked to sing during the bootcamp auditions. Strange coincidence, but I really don’t know why everyone is getting in a big hoo-ha about it when, ultimately, only the viewer can determine who wins. If she gets put into the bottom two then the judges could save her – but they’re not conceivably going to do that week after week…so the public will have their say in the end. The fact that she has sailed through so far must mean people genuinely like her. The tabloids need to calm down and understand it’s not the X Factor producers who are keeping her in through underhanded means, but the voters themselves!
To be honest, it doesn’t really matter that the winner’s single will be something Diana has sung before. Even if they released three minutes of dogs barking people will still buy it. You may need a key change at the end though. That, plus a video consisting of flashbacks of show highlights and a slow-motion of the winner’s reaction to the final result. Hey presto! You have a Christmas number one! It’s a guaranteed formula.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Diana does win considering it’s bound to be one of Cheryl’s acts that comes out on top, and this publicity can only serve to attract more hype. However, her voice is something you either love or hate, so not everyone will be swayed. Not to mention the weird hand thing she does. That has to stop, surely? Maybe the judges are busy taping it to her body now so that it doesn’t put off voters – afterall, the whole thing’s fixed, right?
