We’ve reached the season finale of the X Factor 2011 and the 3 remaining contestants; Marcus Collins, Little Mix, and Amelia Lily face a daunting week of preparing for next weekend’s final. The betting markets show just how undecided people are on who is actually going to win the recording contract with Simon Cowell.
Marcus Collins has grown steadily in this competition and has peaked at the right time.
His voice has been great throughout, but only in the last 3 or 4 weeks has his enthusiasm and stage presence really shone through.
The Liverpool lad has grown a good fan base of all ages, and has every chance of winning the competition, provided his performances on Saturday are up to their normal high standards.
A shock elimination in the first week of the live shows, Amelia was reinstated by public vote after Frankie Cocozza was booted out of the competition for’misconduct’.
Since returning, Amelia has done fantastically well, really livening up the show which had become rather dull.
Amelia appears to be a hit with the youngsters, which could well win her the X Factor title for 2011.
Little Mix aim to become the first girl group to win The X Factor. The four girls have been a revelation in the live shows, improving every week and getting great press coverage.
The group were as big as 66/1 to win outright before the live shows started.
The group started out being called Rhythmix, but were forced to change it due to trademark infringement.
Little Mix deserve to head the betting market here, they have fans of all ages, and are very up to date and modern.
