Cowell brought back camp pop duo Diva Fever in the Groups category, while Louis Walsh offered his wildcard to Wagner Carrilho. Dannii Minogue handed a last chance to cinema worker Paije Richardson and Cheryl Cole gave the last slot on the live shows to Treyc Cohen
Yep, One Direction, the whole New Direction misdirection was my bad.
Also, I fancy them for the 2010 version, not so much the 2011 one
But yeah, I do think they're a stonking bet for the following reasons as I mentioned in the chat:
1 Mentored by Cowell who has huge influence on the vote
2 will also be loved by louis who is particularly keen on young boy acts
3 will be loved by the x-factor voting demographic i.e. young girls
4 Two of them can sing respectably
5 very different to any previous winnner therefore lots of marketing potential
6 probably the worst final 12 ever, at least half of them are almost joke candidates
7 They'll be malleable & easy for Simon to dictate to, a key requirement, he doesn't like 'em stroppy or to have a mind of their own
There is a bit of a gap in the market for a young boy band too IMO. Most boy bands nowadays are more like mid-life-crisis bands.
I've started betting them at 6.6 & will continue to do so. I might simply start mugging stuff like Beatvic fivers on them (just did one in fact, @ 5.5) to gradually build up a position. I'll be amazed if they don't trade much shorter than 6s & I think they're a good shout to win.
Caveat: Obviously my dismal arc tipping doesn't inspire much confidence....
Well thought out Fella but the fact remains that they need a hair cut and are just another manufactured boy band.
Cher Lloyd is different, truly induvidual, charismatic and will win
