Christopher Maloney is the least popular act with the judges on this year’s X Factor.
Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger (who gave Chris our favourite critique ever, “you might want some burger with that cheese) and Tulisa Contostavlos continually give Chris negative feedback, but it would seem that the voting public just love the nervy former cruise ship singer.
Now, Tulisa is fearful that Christopher’s popularity with the voting public could see him make it into the grand final, taking the place of more deserving acts like Ella Henderson, Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur.
“My hope as in the people that deserve it talent-wise and as people, is Ella, Jahmene and James. My fear is that Christopher will take one of those spots,” the N-Dubz star admitted on The Xtra Factor.
This week, Christopher isn’t the bookies favourite to be eliminated from the show. He also received slightly less harsh criticism from the judges after his performance of Eric Carmen’s All By Myself, with Tulisa actually admitting that she enjoyed Chris’ performance,
“For the first time ever I actually loved the song choice,” Tulisa said last night. “I loved your vocals and I thought it was a brilliant performance. My only issue is, for me it’s five weeks too late. It shouldn’t take someone this long to get to this stage. So, for me, I’m feeling it is just a lucky one off.”
Do you think Christopher could reach the final or even actually win the show?
