They’ve been trying to get rid of Stevi Ritchie for WEEKS on The X Factor.
But when the judges finally had a chance to show this year’s apparent novelty act the door after he landed himself in the bottom two, SOME of them did a crazy u-turn and sent Jay James packing instead. After relying on that trusty deadlock thing, obvs.
Not great news for Simon ‘four acts’ Cowell really. Shame.
Yep, after spending the entire series berating Stevi and basically making fun of Chloe-Jasmine’s former love interest, when it came down to choosing who to kick off the stage, Mel B and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini seemed to forget where they were and actually save his butt.
You know Mel B. The one whose only compliment for Stevi all series has been ‘you’re a nice guy.’ Yep, THAT ONE.
Did we mention that Jay James was the casualty in all of this?
