Going by today's news it seems the x-factor is making it up as it goes along...
Not only has it asked thousands of people to vote on who should stay or go thinking their £ vote meant something, making Cowell & Co huge amounts of money - it now seems their vote means nothing in that they (the four elite) choose who goes through to the final.
Seems to me that it is just another line of cons from TV Shows regarding premium rate calls:
ITV: Ten million fake premium rate calls
Richard and Judy
If anyone wants to support this show then they must be out of their tiny mind
