    American X Factor

    Have you anything to say about the American X Factor, add your American X Factor Hub here.

    As you know in Ireland we don’t get the American X Factor on TV until the weekend. I think it is outrageous that Rachel Crow was voted off. Nicole Scherzinger should be ashamed of herself; she put her career by voting with LA Reid first rather than voting for the best act on the night, shame.

      I agree that Scherzinger took the easy way out but that's her option.  My big issue with her and Paula is that they are not professional in their position with all the crying and "I just can't do this" crap. 

      Personally, although I think Crow has a great voice and style for her age, she really didn't do anything great the past 3 weeks in keeping with her talent. 

      I don't like all the background dancers.  They are out of place and tend to distract from the singers.  Simon was right when he told Josh to stand alone next week.  He doesn't need all that stuff.  Simon, whether he's likeable or not, is more times than not, correct.  I'm pulling for Josh, personally. I like Chris Renee but don't really see any talent.  Agree, however, with the brilliance of his last performance.  The performance reminded me, in its simplicity, of that little dreadlock guy a few seasons ago on Idol who sang "Hallelujah".

      Love Steve better than Ryan.  It's the accent.  Is he Scottish?  I can't tell.

      I agree this was the 3rd time Marcus was in the bottom 2 he should have went the second time he was in the bottom. The judges have made it there personal game by voting for there person and not the best act. The girls shouldnt even be judges if they cant vote then get them off. It is obviously not the best act going to win it will be who had the best luck. Marcus should have been gone 2 shows ago and now 2 acts that were much better than his are gone.

        Right.  The audience count for the last two is only supposed to be used in the case of a judges' tie.

    Thanks for your reply, what I was suggesting was that, the final decision was supposed to be about the final performance, Rachel blow Marcus away with that mature performance, however, Nicole looked to LA Reid before she decided she could not make her decision, it is not her choice to discriminate against someone and thats what she done, she would have backed Rachel if she was honest and decent.

      I do get that.  I think she was irresponsible, too.  Simon did it on another week as well.  Although I like Rachel a lot, I was actually hoping she would be the one to go because rumor has it that she is being looked at by Hollywood so she'll make it somewhere anyway.  Marcus was in the bottom 3 for 3 weeks so he'll probably go next.
      So what about Steve?  Scottish or Irish?

    You have been here long enough to know you can't link to your hubs in the forums.

    Agreed! Nicole took the easy way out and it really bit her in the end. It was kinda of shameful. Rachel's last performance was way better than Marcus'

      Did you hear people booing her when she went on the stage at the end along with all the others?  She kind of hid in the back.

        ya they really gave it to her... She would hardly even show her face. As a judge she should have done her job.

          But I do give her kudos for her outfits.
