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 f ixed 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!
