I've never seen X Factor but my eyewitness for the final tells me it was fixed.
The song they chose to be the single was not a man's song. It was a woman's song, a Mariah Carey/Whitney Houston type warbler.
Ray, the 18 year old Robbie Williams wannabe, couldn't really do it justice. You felt a bit sorry for him, trying to hit the high notes, his bollocks not allowing him to.
Ray was good, very good, but he's got bollocks and was therefore at a disadvantage.
Maybe they should have chopped them off, shaved them, and fed them to the judges, brought a bit of I'm A Celebrity type entertainment to the proceedings.
Ratings (and Ray's voice) would have soared.
