X Factor UK – Top 7 – Results

Katie Waissel is eliminated from X Factor
Wagner is eliminated.

Glee Cast, Alexandra Burke and The Black Eyed Peas next week!

Two X Factor “villains” are eliminated in one fell swoop. Buh bye Katie Waissel and Wagner!

Katie was kept in the competition by Simon who saw her trainwreck personality as good TV. But, as the show came down to the wire, I think they were pretty much done with her.

Wagner’s dramatic singout reminded me how Louis turned the dude into a singing monkey for our entertainment. I’d love to know how Wagner really felt about playing the fool. One one hand, it kept him on TV for weeks past his sell date, but on the other, he wound up looking like a jack ass.

If he had made it through another week, TPTB would have resorted to Plan B. There were reports in the paper that Wagner was smoking pot in the X Factor house–definitely fishing around for an excuse to disqualify him.

Next week is the semifinal, with Matt Cardle, Mary Byrne, Rebecca Ferguson, One Direction and Cher Lloyd competing to be in the final.

The question is: Will there be another double elimination next week? or will the final be a contest between 4 acts?

But the really important thing? GLEE NEXT WEEK! The Glee cast will perform on the results show next week. YAY.

It’s a double elimination this week on X Factor UK! Who goes home this week? Watch the live stream after the jump, beginning at 3 pm ET to find out.

This week’s show features performances by The Wanted, Justin Bieber (OMG!!111!), and Nicole Scherzinger.

Also, I’ll be live-blogging the results RIGHT HERE.

The UK’s newest boyband, The Wanted take the stage first. What’s the deal with the UK and their love of boybands? Americans got over that fad pretty quick.

Why are The Wanted ripping off Kings of Leon? And really really badly, at that.

The vote is close, says Dermot, so KEEP VOTING Y’ALL.

IT’S THE BIEBS OMG OMG OMG. Justin Bieber takes the stage to sing his latest whatever.

Nicole Scherzinger debuts her new single. Wow. This sucks.

VOTING IS CLOSED.

RESULTS!

Act with lowest votes leaves the competition immediately.  KAITIE WAISSEL has the lowest votes.  Mary Byrne and Wagner will sing for their lives. Bye Wagner!

Just a formality but…

Louis introduces Wagner with that look on his face that says, “There goes my last act.”   Dead Man Walking Wagner sings “Unforgettable”.   I will be trying to forget this as soon as possible.

Louis introduces Mary Byrne with a smile.  She sings “This is My Life” or some such old-fashioned deal that even Mary should be too young to remember.  Doesn’t matter.  Wagner would be gone, regardless.

Louis first?  That’s mean.  They should allow him to go last so he doesn’t have to choose between his acts.

Louis sends home Wagner
Dannii sends home Wagner
Cheryl tells Wagner that he’s a very gracious man, but then sends home

Simon disses vote for the worst. LULZ. Simon says he’s aware that a certain element was trying to derail the results, and he’s happy the show is back on track.

Safe (in no particular order)

  • Rebecca Ferguson
  • Matt Cardle
  • Cher Lloyd
  • One Direction

  1. LOL @ Louis “I’ve got two, you’ve got one.” to Simon.

    Ugh. Justin Bieber still looks like a girl and sounds like one :/.

  2. Louis could very well be without any act left after tonight.
    Wonder if Simon could announce Nicole as one of his judges for the US X factor live tonight.

  3. I’ve got a funny feeling that Wagner will survive again this week. Gosh, I hope not.

    Hmmm..my guess for leaving is Katie & Mary/Cher tossup.

  4. The Wanted are not. Mateja, they’re just another audition-formed new boyband who had a #1 debut single.

    Bieber was lipsynching. It’s embarrassing for humanity how well he’s sold.

    Nicole isn’t lipsyncing although it might be better if she did. WTH is that hair?

  5. The Wanted are not. Mateja, they’re just another audition-formed new boyband who had a #1 debut single.

    I don’t really care how they were formed – boybands are usually audition-formed, so nothing new.

    But damn, they don’t sing that well together and they are not pretty to look at, so they are definitely not doing their job as a boyband.

  6. Well, too bad, Katie was one of the only interesting contestant left and it would have been interesting to have a Mary vs Katie showdown, now it’s just a matter of sending Wagner home. If Mary has more votes than Wagner, I’ll predict a deadlock just to rise the ratings.

  7. I’ve never been happier to be wrong!

    Buh-bye Wagner. Buh-bye Katie.

  8. Katie went. She didn’t deserve to go, but it’s no surprise.

    Yep. Oh, well. Won’t care much about losing Wagner, though.

  9. WordPress keeps logging me out after I type my comment!

    Anyway, is it bad that One Direction makes me hope I don’t have daughters? Ugh, them.

  10. For what it’s worth this might be the best I’ve seen Wagner sing.. Still extremely cheesy but surprisingly less awful then normal.

  11. What, no “I Who Have Nothing,” Mary? C’mon, live the cliche!

    Not that it matters — she could have gotten up and done armpit noises into the mic and still get the vote over Wagner.

  12. …This has been Wagner’s best week, both his first song and his sing-off were less awful than normal, lol.

    Funny when (if) he’s gone.

    ….This elimination is pretty damn awkward. He seems way too happy to be leaving. Like someone’s giving him a million dollars.

    GLEE OMFG

  13. Mary gave me chills in the sing off. I’m such a softie.

    Wagner, good luck in life.

  14. jammasta, One Direction are harmless. I’d be more worried over Justin Bieber.

    I’m glad Wagner is gone as his entertainment value was gone ages ago. Congrats to Mary for making it to the finale Five. I thought she was much better in the sing off than with what Louis gave her too.

  15. Well, fiannly. Bye Katie, bye Wagner!

    X Factor results shows are over so quickly!

    Glee Cast, Alexandra Burke and The Black Eyed Peas next week!

  16. So will it be another double elimination next week? They usually do a top 3, so they have to eliminate 2 more acts, One Direction and Matt are locks IMO and it will be very difficult for Cher or Mary to take Rebecca’s place.

  17. jammasta, One Direction are harmless. I’d be more worried over Justin Bieber.

    The terror. Eh, Justin Bieber will have probably grown into a blossoming young woman by the time I have children (No, really, he actually might be more of a man somehow).

    I still do NOT WANT THEM IN THE FINALE. If they make the finale over Cher I am going to Britain and voting until they charge me my entire life savings. Reality shows. Srs bizznizz. (Yes, I have issues.)

    Actually, screw One Direction, I think Liam Payne should just go solo. He’s the only one I give a damn about because I loved his audition. Simon should have put Nicolo Festa in an attempt to make them really diverse and FAIL, and Dannii should’ve just had Liam Payne in her group.

    I’m proud of Mary (lol proud mary) for making it this far, but I think it’s her time to go.

    Matt and Rebecca are the only locks. Cher is still different and unique among them, but a Bottom 2 might reveal that she isn’t as popular as she is made out to be. One Direction, not so much, but they do sail through and are harm…..less (ouch) if you take away the Lambert/Gokey factor out (Which they honestly don’t deserve, at least Adam was really good and Danny wasn’t always bad). Mary, ummm…. Not too sure where she stands, but as she hit bottom before semis, I think she’s gone next week.

  18. I still do NOT WANT THEM IN THE FINALE. If they make the finale over Cher I am going to Britain and voting until they charge me my entire life savings. Reality shows. Srs bizznizz. (Yes, I have issues.)

    Sorry Jammasta but you should prepare yourself right now, there is no way 1D will not make the finals, I like to equal them to one contestant in S5, Eoghan or something like that. Same thing, the cutest little boy ever, with very little talent, a lot of big production numbers catering to his demo.
    He was still not as popular as 1D (based on press and screams during their appearance) and made the top 3 quite easily (almost double the votes of the 4th). When the week by week votes were revealed, he was almost all the way the top vote getter. That’s the power of the tween fandom.

    I still pick Matt to win tough, because he is much more likely to get the votes from the other eliminated acts.
    At this point, Rebecca will need much stronger perfomances so that the pimping of the judges can be in full effect. I think she’s the one Simon really wants to see win.

  19. The Hoff on the Xtra Factor is a fan of One Direction. He says they have charisma and they can sing.

    Justin Bieber says Cheryl is beautiful. He says he is relatable.

  20. TheXFactor The X Factor

  21. Rebecca is the most overrated of the semi-finalists. She is a lifeless performer, can’t sustain a note and often loses the melody. Even at her age Mary is moving around more. Rebecca uses her vocal tone as a crutch. I liked Rebecca at the start but she’s so deathly dull and overhyped I’m well off her.

    I’d like Matt and One Direction in the final. They and Cher probably have the most commercial potential. I like Mary but I don’t see the votes being there and Louis gives her lousy material.

  22. I can’t put my finger on why but Justin Bieber looks a cute young lesbian instead of a 16yo boy. Yes, he’s pretty but that’s not it. That Zain kid from One Direction is also pretty but I wouldn’t mistake him for a girl.

    I’m sad to see Wagner go, Katie…not so much.

  23. Sorry Jammasta but you should prepare yourself right now, there is no way 1D will not make the finals, I like to equal them to one contestant in S5, Eoghan or something like that.

    Oh. Tweens >_>.

    Sans David Archuleta and Aaron Kelly, I don’t think I’ve cared at all for any tweens seen on these reality shows. Blargh.

  24. i want Mary gone first b4 Katie. now, off to watch fetus.

    ETA: oh, nooo…No, fetus vid??

  25. The Hoff on the Xtra Factor is a fan of One Direction. He says they have charisma and they can sing.

    Too be fair, this is the Hoff’s experience with singing, so one can kind of understand why he can appreciate One Dimensionrection.

    Hooked on a Feeling

  26. Lol, Hoff even trash talked American Idol, he said that the talent was “above and beyond what we see in America”
    He said that in American Idol, it gets too slick, that we always have a Wagner and that One Direction could have success in America.

    The two other on the panel were pro Matt.

  27. Suzanne, see the Justin.TV link at the top of the page, MotownMike streams the shows Live on Sat. and Sun.

  28. Wagner is eliminated.

    Finally!

    ETA:

    IT’S THE BIEBS OMG OMG OMG. Justin Bieber takes the stage to sing his latest whatever.

    LOL! I was talking to my 14-year-old nephew and asked him what he thought of Justin Bieber and he said that he “HATED” him, but that all of the girls his age loved him. LOL! He’s a big fan of Taylor Swift. ;)
