The X Factor final is over, the voting figures have been released and what we’d all suspected has proved to be true.
Had the judges not opted for a last minute sing off on the semi finals results show, it would have been Mary Byrne and not Cher Lloyd performing on last night’s penultimate show…..though we’re not sure how will.i.am would have felt about that.
Results displayed on the ITV website reveal that the pint sized rapper only received 11% of the overall public votes last Sunday, while the Dublin belter clocked up 14%.
Also, looking at one of the other most controversial weeks, when Cheryl Cole refused to choose between Treyc Cohen and Katie Waissel, but show bosses would not send the show to deadlock, it appears that had public voting figures been used Treyc would have survived having received 3.5% of the vote compared to Katie’s 3.2%.
It was also interesting to see that Matt Cardle received the most votes every week, except for week one when he came second to Mary Byrne and during last night’s vote freeze, it was almost One Direction who left, with only 3% between the boyband and eventual eliminee Cher.
Have a look at the figures yourself and let us know if there are any shockers in there for you!
