The X Factor 2010 Was A Fix: Full Voting Results By Week

by | 14th, December 2010

THE X Factor scooped 15,448,019 votes. And you wasted your money. The thing was rigged. Yep, who knew that a TV show could be scripted and manipulated to come up with the most entertaining outcome? Matt Cardle came top every week but one. Mary Byrne won the first week’s vote – but she was booted off the show in the semi-finals, despite having gained more votes than Cher Lloyd.

Usually, the finalists are decided by the public vote. But this season the judges thought a sing-off was best. So, Cher went through. Although no-one thought to tell panicky presenter Dermot O’Leary who said that the public vote would be the sole barometer of success and failure.

And there’s Katie Waissel. Had the X Factor not fixed it for connected Katie, we would not have had met her adorable granny, the superannuated porn star Sheila Vogel. Did the X Factor know about her while they were pushing Katie through and making headlines?

Oh, and if you are wondering why Simon Cowell’s going to star on the X Factor in the USA, know that when Kris Allen won American Idol in 2009 a record-setting 624 million votes were cast over the season. Kerching!
