Who Will Win The X Factor 2? Poll Results, Predictions

It’s funny that the “Who Will Win Poll” results are inverse to the Favorite finalist result. Now, I’m thinking I should have also asked “Who do you WANT to win” in the poll. My feeling is that people settle on a favorite by the time the final rolls around. In other words, final performances don’t affect the outcome much.

For instance, although Fifth Harmon had a great night last night. And even though several pundits are predicting they will win, I think they peaked too late to surge to the front.

However, while I was sure Tate would probably win the competition, I’m not entirely sure now. The combination of Carly’s fans, Britney’s fans and pity votes (after the LeAnn trainwreck) could put the young singer over the top. Decisions, decisions. Ok. Here’s my prediction:

1. Tate Stevens – He’s been in the lead for much of this season. I don’t see that changing.
2. Carly Rose – She had a few strong weeks in the middle of the competition, but I think she fell behind and won’t recover.
3. Fifth Harmony – Valient effort from the girls, but too late in the game. What do you think?

1. Fifth Harmony 47.59
2. Carly Rose Sonenclar 34.07%
3. Tate Stevens 18.34%

6. Tate Stevens – Anything Goes – 5.18%
7. Tate Stevens – Tomorrow – 5.11%
8. Tate Stevens – Pontoon – 3.8%
9. Carly Rose & LeAnn – How Do I Live Without You 1.04%


1. Tate Stevens – 34.43%
2. Carly Rose Sonenclar – 31.79

    I think if Carly performed last and was Simon’s act she would have won, no questions asked.

  • Stavros

    But, Carly wasn’t either of the above. All of the contestants put up a good fight and as Simon pointed out, they all had a good night. So I think the power of Middle America will give it to Tate when the playing field is so level.

    Can you guys imagine the reaction face of Britney if Fifth Harmony ended up winning? Man, that would be so priceless ~ lol.

    5H have some teen votes unlike all the others, and they also have grown a fanbase with the great performances… They also have some Demi power votings BUT not sure how this would work as all Demis acts were eliminated in a short time… Carly and Tate have their own fanbase and it’s interesting as it actually is anyone’s game since they all have strenghts, weeknesses, advantages, disadvantages etc etc… We’ll see in a few hours. 

    If anyone has any live stream links can you reply to me with the link? :D Thanks!

    I’m just hoping that Demi’s fans + E3’s fans + surge + pimp spot can take this away from the WGWG. I’m so confused why Simon didn’t have 1D perform with 5H. Maybe he thought the girls might get death threats? Or maybe, as per having them sing two repeats, he’s just phoning it in?

    I think they all have performed well and would be worthy winners. Unlike that piece of garbage that just won the voice. 

  • Hellraiser77

    I think the shortened season (less weeks with all those double eliminations) didn’t help contestants like 5th Harmony, who peak later in the competition. Comparing to the Uk, if the show had finished after 7 live shows (which is usually top 6)we would have a very different (and scary) set of winners.

    I’d like for 5H to pull a surprise win, but I gotta go with my gut (and what I know about voting demos on these shows) and stick with Tate.  Guess we’ll see…

  • SullyD

    The biggest question here is: If Tate wins, will we have enough wgwgs to make super boyband?

    I want 5th Harmony to win but I’m being realistic here, I know they won’t it will be Tate. He’s going to win, they really should’ve gotten eliminated him the 1st week when they had the chance because I knew he was going to win. 

  • fantoo1

    Tate isn’t a soft rocker. And there are more WGWG besides the winners, so of course we would have enough.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZKFZHKHKKWCNLKZG3BFENDGSTY MarshaA

    People seriously voted for “Anything Can Happen” as the best performance of the night? The song they also performed LAST WEEK? It was good but boring and not a big improvement over last week’s performance.

    Carly Rose is amazingly talented and easily the best vocalist; her main drawback is that she’s sometimes either a little robotic or too theatrical. Tate is a decent performer but vocally limited and usually sounds like someone singing karaoke of Garth Brooks. Fifth Harmony still fails to harmonize, as was clearly shown on their competing solos on the last song. Simon’s description of them as five good singers (as opposed to a good group…) unintentionally highlights their problem. Why are they even still in the competition?

  • emlz

    Is Tate really a WGWG? He’s a country artist first, and aside from Darius Rucker probably, just about all country males are WGWGs. Don’t know if that really counts. 

    I think Carly’s fans voted like crazy yesterday because they knew she could be in trouble, but I assume that Tate’s fans always vote like crazy, so it’s a toss-up in my head.

    we’d have enough to make an army.

    I know it’s gonna be. I know it’s gonna be. I know it’s gonna be. I know it’s gonna be. I know it’s gonna be. I know it’s gonna be ALL RIGHT. :)

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Tate will win. Carly second. 5th Harmony third.

    Simon will be pissed and I’ll be happy about that. lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    The final show tonight is 2 hours, and the only guest performers that I’ve heard about are Pitbull and 1 Direction. Are there any other guest performers? I’m not looking forward to tons and tons of filler.

  • jcabby

    I hope Fifth Harmony wins. These gals are great vocalists, and I do think they can be huge. 

  • durbesque

    Would I go to my corner bar to hear Tate?  No.  But then, I’m not really a country fan.  Yet I went to a local county fair to hear Chris Young a few years ago.  I like a gorgeous voice even if it sings country.  Tate’s voice is adequate, but ordinary. 

  • http://twitter.com/JonKills Jon Glass

    right. There has to be more performers. Back during the VMAS, demi said her new single would be dropping in Decemeber. Where is it? lol.

    I don’t really think it matters who wins! Emblem 3 will get signed, Tate will get signed, and Carly will get signed. I could be wrong but I have a feeling 5th Harmony could also get signed. This show needs someone to do really well to give this show some credibility so they’ll sign who they think will do well and see who sticks. I am actually thinking that secretly Simon wants Tate to win because he knows the country fans are very loyal and will buy which will give them a successful winner. BUT, I do have to say this. They really need to rethink the whole idea of waiting FOREVER to release at least a single. People have short memories so they need to release something quickly and do a lot of promo.
