X Factor Betting Odds - X Factor 2011 Guide


Amelia Lily Oliver, Little Mix and Marcus Collins are on the edge of a dream but two of these acts will be disapointed come Saturday night.  Little Mix are leading the odds table at the moment, helped by Gary Barlow's clearly biased critiques this weekend.  The Take That judge, who has been keen to show his gravitas and fairness on the judging panel, lost it at the weekend when opining after  his competitors' acts which did not go unnoticed by the viewers.  In trying to triumph Marcus Collins he actually boosted the others in a neat 'shoot yourself in the foot' move .

Tulisa Contostavlos was clearly keen to take nothing for granted and issued an impassioned plea for phone votes, signposting her desire to pip her other colleagues to the postand make X Factor historing by mentoring the first group to the winning post.

Kelly Rowland lost one of her acts this weekend after indulging in a bit of self promotionon the X factor stage and is now left with the one act she chose to oust in the first week.  Amelia Lily could win despite her mentor not because of her and this will appeal to British viewers. For Amelia to come back and do so well puts Rowland in her place and gives the power back to the public which is always a good thing.

Louis Walsh will of course be sitting on the panel in his court jester capacity, having lost all his acts and is sure to effervesce as usualabout everything and everyone safe in the knowledge that no one s paying him any attention.

The final will be a dramatic affair, over produced and speckled with some big names to bring the viewers in and nerves are sure to make their mark on the competitors.  Amelia Lily could well sneak a win as the one most able to deal with the limelight under these gruelling conditions

The X-Factor is a TV talent show and was launched in 2004 and is produced by talkback THAMES and Simon Cowell's production company SYCO tv and it has succeeded in becoming more popular than its predecessor Pop Idol which was also hosted by Cowell.
