X Factor boss Simon Cowell is reportedly frustrated with the results not going his way.

The music mogul is keen for Tamera Foster to triumph on this year’s contest, but it’s apparently Sam Bailey who is leading the votes.

But there’s good news for 16-year-old Tamera in all of this, with The Sun newspaper claiming that Simon will offer her a “multi-million” pound record contract regardless of whether or nor she wins.

A supposed source told the newspaper today: “Simon is besotted by Tamera and has dollar signs in his eyes when she sings.

“He thinks she’s the full package. She has the voice, the looks and is young enough for a long career.”

    Shutting down his twitter is one of the few smart career moves James Arthur has made lately.

  • Blackbeat

    I’m kind of liking Sam Bailey now and she kind of interest me to watch the show but I’m pretty sure that Tamera Foster is going to win.I hope the UK votes well. I think Nicholas is the weakest but because he’s a 16 year old cute Scottish boy he’ll be sticking around for a while…

  • Eric Ascher

    I liked because of you liking Sam Bailey and thinking Nicholas isn’t too strong. I don’t think Tamera will win actually-the public clearly didn’t connect with her and due to her past issues I don’t think that they will.

    Gaga only managed to sell 65k copies in the UK last week… that’s James Arthur territory…
    Born This Way sold 215k in it’s debut week… so that’s a 70% decline of 1st week sales between her 2nd and 3rd album!!
