We have an admission to make at Sofabet. We sometimes (though by no means always) write a draft for this Sunday night article before the result is announced. That’s because we sometimes feel like we have a good idea who will be involved.
Given the open nature of this week’s bottom two possibilities, we didn’t write any draft. With only seven contestants left that’s quite something. It’s in stark contrast to this stage in 2011, when Kitty Brucknell rode off into the twilight the day after performing a chariot-themed rendition of ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ in the death slot.
And for the first time I can remember, we had to wait till after the final commercial break too, as they left Chris to shake and the boybands to quake. Ultimately we did indeed have a battle of the boybands, as quite a few of our commenters had speculated would be the case.
This was another singoff no-brainer for me, and I built up five-figure liabilities betting that Union J were indeed the alpha boyband and would be saved. Odds hovered at around 1.1 – 1.15. Louis declined to choose between his two acts, but once Gary had damned District 3’s singoff performance, there wasn’t much doubt. How did you get on this week? Let us know and your reaction to the boyband bottom two below.
