After the closest X Factor series EVER, this weekend will see Fleur East, Ben Haenow and Andrea Faustini battle it out to become 2014′s big winner.
Whilst we’re changing our minds about who will take the crown every SINGLE bleeding day, bookies have put Fleur as their fave to win after her performance of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk shot to the top of the iTunes chart.
AGH WE JUST DON’T KNOW ANYMORE.
Coral have put the 26-year-old sass bomb as their fave to take home the metaphorical bacon, with odds of 4-6 to beat the boys.
Ben currently stands as their second favourite, with odds of 7-4, whilst Andrea has the least favourable odds of 6-1 after landing himself in Sunday’s bottom two against Lauren Platt.
Fleur tweeted her excitement [above] at seeing her Saturday night performance rise above the likes of One Direction and Band Aid 30 to land the number one spot on iTunes, whilst mentor Simon Cowell was more than ready to sing her praises on The Xtra Factor.
Speaking to host Sarah-Jane Crawford, he said: “It just shows. It’s an indication for her that she could have a career outside of X Factor.”
CONGRATS BABES. Fleur we mean, not you, Simon.
Louis Walsh, who lost his last act last weekend, also gushed over her, admitting: “She is the best thing on 11 years of X Factor.”
This is all too much excitement for a Monday afternoon.
Whilst many people would’ve had Andrea down as fave to win the whole show, mainly because of his love of pugs OBVIOUSLY, it seems he’s taken a bit of a hit after finding himself in the sing-off for the second time last night.
Whilst 17-year-old Loz sung her little heart out to Faith Hill’s There You’ll Be, 20-year-old Andrea belted out Jessie J’s Who You Are.
If that doesn’t already sound like one hell of a ruddy sing-off, we don’t know what does.
It was a particularly interesting choice for Loz, as the last time Chezza heard it on X Factor back in 2008, she was moved to tears.
However, the song sadly wasn’t enough to save her when it came to the judges’ vote, with everyone apart from Chezza deciding to send little Lauren home. WAH.
OUR HEARTS ARE BREAKING.
This year’s X Factor final looks set to be the best on yet, especially if you look at the ERRMAYZING array of guest performers lined-up for the two nights as well as the incredible performances the finalists are sure to give.
WE CANNOT PHYSICALLY WAIT. ARGH.
