Look at it like this. As GrumbleDook pointed out this is his career now, he's been given a chance that he may not have otherwise had. From what I have seen and read in the papers he seems a pretty ordinary young person. Why shouldn't he have the chance to be successful? Just because X Factor was his platform, and probably the only platform he would have got into the music industry, it doesn't really affect his voice or talent. If he didn't win through X Factor would people still be doing all this silly campaigning? I doubt it. I think the real gripe here is with Simon and not Joe, Olly, or whoever else could have won for that matter.

Of course it is. Thats the thing, it doesnt matter to anyone, including Simon Cowell, who wins because its a guaranteed #1 for very little effort. Whoever wins releases the same bloody song anyway.

As for it being his only chance, does that not point to him not being good enough? Loads of bands and artists do it themselves and get themselves deals, a lot more hard work required than going on a tv talent show. If he was that great would he not have been picked up by a label already? Perhaps thats why the number of winners of the show that have any longevity is so few

We watched "move like MJ" on BBC3 last night. That was much better than the X-Factor.

We all know Simon is rolling it in, nothing is going to change that. Good luck to him I say. I'd do the same if I could.

There's just over a week until Christmas. Not enough time to write an song, let alone album that's going to blow everyone off their feet for Christmas. Thus they just rerecord a song. I imagine that's why.

Pretty boy? Not sure what you mean.
Or he could end up in the same place as Alexandra? JLS? All from X Factor.
Hope he doesn't succeed? I'm not going there. Why would you not want somebody you don't know to succeed? It's like me saying I hope you don't succeed in your job. I just wouldn't do it.
Who has blubbed?

I couldn't really care less if people pay sony for ratm or pay sony for the xfactor pop-by-numbers winner.
It's all noise at 7am on the way to work! The guy who started the ratm thing was on the radio the other day and he sounded pretty normal, genuinely suprised at the response. I was expecting some idiot student trying to stick it to the man!

Why does RATM not show on the itunes chart then?

POP TRIVIA MOMENT.
If the Muppets make Crimbo number 1 Behemian Rhapsody will become the second song to have seen Christmas number 1 three times.
So edugeeks, what's the only song to be UK christmas number 1 three times?
EDIT: Hint this song was the first to do the double.
