X Factor Week 4 – Results – VIDEO

UPDATE: Rachel Adedeji was eliminated from X Factor tonight.

Rachel and Lloyd Daniels hit the bottom 2. The judges’ vote deadlocked, with Dannii and Louie saving Rachel, Cheryl saving Lloyd and Simon refusing to pick. Rachel had the lowest number of votes–she was sent home.

Obviously, Rachel wasn’t connecting, with three trips to the bottom 3.   But Lloyd? That singout was a pitchy, scary mess. He so deserved to be sent on his way tonight.

  1. Thanks for the link…the feed I was watching has an add covering the screen asking for donations – okay to listen to, but can’t see much!

  2. Anyone know what the little red pins are for? They’re all wearing them….

    Not surprised by the B2.

  3. At least Danyl is safe. He can sing.

    It’s the Sanjaya Factor with the twins.

  4. Lloyd should go, he suuucks.

    On the other hand Rachel was better than him last night, but has been in the bottom 2 times before, so obviously not connecting. But still, rather her than him stay.

  5. Anyone know what the little red pins are for? They’re all wearing them’ ¦.

    The red pins are Poppies for WW I. The British Empire lost 942,135 as part of that war. I was just re-reading the Zimmerman Telegram the other day by Barbara Tuchman and just reading how many people were being lost per battle for the British was…whoa! We in the US never had to face those kinds of loses in any war outside our Civil one, thankfully.

    They’re poppies in respect of Remembrance Sunday next weekend. :)

  7. Hoping it’s Lloyd that goes, despite the fact that Rachel doesn’t seem to be connecting. She definitely shouldn’t have been here, though, based on the performances last night.

  8. Can they sing any song they have sung? This isn’t what Rachel sang last night.

  9. OK, that version actually did make Danny look like a vocal masterclass. That was just… oh, I need an adjective. Not sure I can find one that’s appropriate.

    Aww… man, Rachel went home. After that mess on Lloyd’s part? That’s just… blah. What a cop out on Simon’s part.

  10. Lloyd couldn’t even sing for his final performance, he cracked all over the place- but it went to a deadlock. and Rachel got the boot!

  11. Danni and Louis supported Rachel, Cheryl supported Lloyd, Simon decided to leave it to the public vote and Rachel is out.

  12. LOL Simon didn’t care who left… Lloyd and Rachel are both bad.

  13. Rachel never appeared to connect with the viewers. So not overly surprised that she went home on the DeadLock.

    Now Simon can puff his chest out a little more since he’s the only one with three acts left. :lol:

    ETA: Thanks for the poppy explanation.

  14. Poppies. In remembrance of Flanders Field. There is a beautiful poem about it if you care to google it. U.S. veteran organizations sell poppies on Veterans’ Day (Nov. 7th) to raise funds for our vets. Buy one!

  15. Lloyd’s singing is only ok, needing more experience and coaching, but he’s adorable. Glad he gets another week. He was not the worst of the night.

    Wish it was Danyl who got cut though. I’m sick of the adulation being so far out of proportion with his talent and performances.

  16. I really liked her… Rachel’s the “tan” one, right? if so she was/is beautiful with a really nice soulful voice.. these “shows” are a joke… I love them, but the way they’re ran are a mess.

  17. ok they finally woke up and voted 4 danyl. glad he’s safe for one more week.

  18. I really liked her’ ¦ Rachel’s the ‘tan’  one, right? if so she was/is beautiful with a really nice soulful voice.. these ‘shows’  are a joke’ ¦ I love them, but the way they’re ran are a mess.

    Yes, and I agree. Where has the competent production gone?

  19. I can’t believe Rachel was eliminated over about three or four other people. So ridiculous! She had a pretty good performance last night. GO LUCIE AND OLLY!!

  20. That’s too bad, Rachel was one of the most credible to imagine as a professional singer. I had written in my comments last night about the videos that I was put off by her saucy little wink to the camera as she sang “One”. Considering the emotional resonance of that song (as it should be anyway), it was quite jarring. She does have a very strong voice though. I hope that some good opportunities will come out of this for her.

  21. Rachel deserved better but somehow just wasn’t connecting with voters. Neither of these two were the worst this week.

    Damned shame Danyl got through.

  22. I wish Simon hadn’t put that to the public vote.

    Rachel should have stayed but I don’t think the public have ever gelled with her.

    Lloyd is rubbish – the sore throat makes little difference!

  23. Simon has ZERO credit with me anymore, nothing he says fazes me…

    How can you sit in front of those two and not pick her to stay? and you make MILLIONS!!!!!!! doing this…. How?!

    Oh, and plus the dipshit didn’t like ROF.. etc…

  24. A really stupid move by Simon. I know Rachel obviousy isn’t connecting with the audience but Lloyd can’t sing even without the bad throat .. it wouldn’t have made any difference .. he still would have sounded sh*t.

    It was their chance to get rid of him because now his tween fan base will be fired into action and he’ll be there until the end and probably win, it will serve Simon right …lol

    The cyinical side of me thinks he wanted to keep Lloyd in to keep the tween viewing figures up (apparently Lloyd get’s the most fanmail and has the most followers on facebook) .. and of course there’s the money they make from the voting .. if he can spur the tweens on they’ll make more money.

    Nice to see Bon Jovi again .. Jon Bon has fabulous hair

  25. Rachel wasn’t going to win, anyway, but this would’ve been a good chance to get rid of Lloyd, who is probably going to stick around and knock out other people who are a lot better than he is. Oh well.

  26. I liked Rachel! Oh well.
    the fact that the judges almost always chicken out and go to deadlock is annoying me. Pick a side, people!

  27. Sometimes, I almost viserally dislike little cutesy boys, as they get all those tweeny votes, for no other reason than Cute. He certainly did not win on talent.
    Yes, I know she was not going to win this, but to lose to this kid is so
    wrong. She has a very nice voice, yet she does lack the all important
    confidence. I really hope somebody gives her the break she needs!!!

  28. They had to keep LLoyd in the competition for all the tweeny girls out there…its Lloyd and the twins who get the screams and the oohs and aahs. Come on this was a competition that unleashed Eoghan Quigg on the world…talk about a HORRIBLE singer.

  29. Too bad re Rachel. She’s a good singer with memorable tone and pretty good technique. Could do well on radio. She’s got some non-X-factor videos on YT of her singing, and she sounds quite good & looks good too.

    Ironically, she sang her own boot song with “stop crying your heart out”, esp since it was her 3rd time in the bottom 2.

    Since there are 4 judges, it seems this will always be thrown to the people’s vote. 2 judges vote for their own mentees, 1 votes honestly, and then the final 1 throws it to the people’s choice. So why go through the sham of making the bottom 2 sing? Why not just go with the people’s vote, like in AI?

    Not true…. Rickey was sent home instead of Rachel 2 weeks ago with a 2-1 vote (Louie was gone but said he would have sent Rickey home too – So 3-1). Personally, I would have sent Rachel home then just to put her out of her misery. The girl broke down every time she hit B2.

    Last week I think Cheryl was really hoping that Danyl would get the boot if she threw it into DeadLock. Lloyd and Joe had a better shot vocally if Miss Frank were to stay in the competition rather than Danyl.

    Being in the B2 for the third time really sent a message to the Judges. People weren’t connecting with Rachel. So while I think Simon would agree that vocally Rachel was much stronger and he would have liked to have kept her over Lloyd, he was only prolonging the inevitable. So throw it back to Deadlock.

    I’m sure if the twins managed to get into the B2 then they’ll be sent home 3-1 too. Although I really don’t know how Louie could even defend them at this point. :lol:
