    Wasn't that impressed with Rak Su last night. Not really a rap fan. They all seem the same to me - a little bit of familiar song then same old jabber jabber. I think that, like Grace, they are better with their own compositions

    All the rage interspersing songs with rap now (says the nearly 50 year old), so I did like Rak Su, but I wasn't that impressed with any of them TBH, I could only just about tolerate George Michael songs when he was singing them, so I guess I was a little harsh from the start this week. I liked Holly though.

    Must admit I wasn't a GM fan either. Last night was a joke. Bloody choir boy wins the week. No X Factor there. I wonder who's turn it will be next week <doh>

    Surely Sam has to go next

    The format is all wrong. What is the point of looking for someone with the X factor and then making them sing unsuitable songs. What's your name? Frank Sinatra. OK well we'd like you to sing Great Balls of Fire, off you go.<doh>

    Saturday was double elimination. As expected it was goodbye to Sam and the young duet. It was a cakewalk for Rak Su who were brilliant with another of their own compositions and probably a future No 1. Can see them going odds on (currently Evs). 1/20 for top group. Can't see many bookies taking large bets on that. Talk about easy money.

    Getting serious now Evs Rak Su, 3/1 Grace. 6 points on Rak Su and 3 on Grace gives 12 points return for 9 points outlay (ie 1/3 either one to win). Seems a pretty safe bet to me

    We are at the stage where, as Sharon said "drop the Mike" to Rak Su. Seems hard to imagine them being beaten, but that said I think everyone knows they (RS) are going to be the ultimate winners even if the don't win the completion (think One Direction). Can't believe Holly is out, although she didn't have a good week again. Tough night. I can't see beyond Grace and Rak Su

    Agreed. I thought Holly might go out, but hoped she wouldn't. I'm afraid she hasn't progressed at all and song choices have been disastrous - recipe for elimination. Can't wait for choir boy to go. There simply is no competition for Rak Su and Grace; the others might as well go home. Wouldn't surprise me if choir boy made it to the final 3 <doh><steam>

    Yeah, the choir boy is like Rydian but not funny; so not great watching, and I agree there will be a lot of old ladies in the valleys dialling him in
