It wasn’t the singoff I was expecting. An all-boy duel transpired between Sam Callahan and Luke. The former was a firm favourite to go at 1.04 during the contest. I wasn’t tempted to chase my losses at those puny odds. Sure enough though, the panel did the sensible thing in getting rid of the lesser vocalist.
The result seemed to contradict the pecking order suggested in The Sun yesterday, which had Sam Callahan in third place behind Sam Bailey and Nicholas. The Essex lad did have everything aimed at him last night – in red and black – and that clearly helped his vote drop off. The margins behind the two market leaders may also be very small.
Otherwise, the biggest point of interest in the show was Louis namechecking Nicholas, Sam Bailey and Rough Copy as the three acts whose album he would buy tomorrow. Are these the three acts that producers are angling to get into the final? Either way, it wasn’t a ringing endorsement for Luke or Sam Callahan before their singoff appeareance, with no mention of Tamera either.
