I'm afraid Little Mix, as far as I'm concerned, don't stand an earthly. Apart from Janet, I do quite like Johnny Robinson. But I can't see him winning, either.
Agree that it'd be nice for Janet to do an up-tempo number sometime. But even if she doesn't, I can't see anyone stopping her procession to the X Factor title, and I'd be quite happy to see that.
Sorry, Barry, as an ordinary non-musical member of the public I really don't understand what is so great about her. Can you explain?
I like Johnny - but think Misha B will win it..
There's been a lot of bad publicity surrounding Misha B : that's probably scuppered any chance she had - good voice not withstanding.
Janet ticks quite a lot of boxes : a rather pretty voice that obviously sounds like Janet and no-one else is probably the biggest box. Not that it bothers me, but her image is also very good.
Hmmm, if I don't agree about one thing, then it's 'that her voice sounds like no-one else's' - she copies exactly all the bad mannerisms that a ton of teenage girls copy of the likes of Ellie Goulding, Diana Vickers (!) etc. What was once unique has turned into a fashion, and you really, imho, can't say she is vocally unique.
If it was purely voice, I think Kitty should win (also artistically tbh). I know that a lot of people hate her, but it's the usual: Make your mind up about someone early on, believe all the ###### the papers write, don't give them a real chance, and mumble on about 'likeability'.
That's probably exactly the people who prefer Frankie over someone who can really sing. I just hope that's over soon...
