  • User AvatarHenry VIII { Dan check out other YT channels too. XF YT doesn't always get the most views. Sam Black has had 3.5 mill views here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2ZRFJ-t3H4 } – 19 September 2017 at 5:58 pm
  • User AvatarTellyStats (@TellyStats) { Of course, they went onto to knobble Janet in the Lives, but we haven't yet reached the Lives this series. I'm not suggesting we'll reach the Lives without her in pole position either, I've only said I doubt she'd win. We've seen enough favourites turned over to suggest there's a high chance she won't make it either - perhaps she will - but my very personal opinion is that she'd be a poor winner. I'm afraid the figures you're posting are incorrect. Although the YouTube figures on TellyStats only go up to 1 day, behind the scenes they're actually recorded at the 48 hour (2 days) and 72 hour (3 days) mark too. 48 hours after posting, Grace's video had 819,010 views, only at 72 hours did she had hit 1,114,092, so quite a bit longer than 36 hours. Not to mention, TellyStats takes stats in smaller increments too so it's easy to see how quickly views were racked up in the first few hours as you mentioned - Grace's views were only 140k after 12 hours and and 390k at 24 hours. I look forward to seeing you become a Premium Member when the time comes so you can see for yourself 😉 50m listens on Soundcloud nothing to be sniffed at but it's a little selective too, it must have been featured somewhere because the popularity didn't seem to carry over anywhere else, even to her other songs. Her subscribers on both YouTube and SoundCloud are relatively modest... } – 19 September 2017 at 6:08 am
  • User AvatarMartin { Hard to get excited by anybody this weekend. Tracy Leanne got very nice, sympathetic coverage and there's plenty to invest in emotionally but I found her hard to warm to, personally. She is classic overs fodder though, and her vocal wasn't mind blowing so she won't trouble any favoured contestants if she does get through to life shows. The brothers were decent but the rapping is a concern. They're like a mixture of Mk1 and James Arthur - as Stoney said, we've seen rapping from successful contestants in the past - Fleur, James Arthur and Little Mix, but that was toned down as we reached the later stages as a rule. doing that with these two, based on what we've seen so far, would effectively make one of the brothers a member of the backing band. LuCkily, the singer is excellent so it may not cause too much of an issue but it's still a reservation I'd have, particularly considering how short they are. } – 19 September 2017 at 4:38 am
  • User AvatarR { I disagree. The lengths the show had to go to in order to prevent Janet from winning have been widely discussed. Ella being voted out is an odd one, but she was given down slowed down pop songs, and if they'd kept her in instead of James, she could easily have taken the win by using the same tactics used to push James to victory. Also, those statistics are misleading as a large chunk of the views come within the first few days, then drop off dramatically. For instance, Grace hit 1 million views in 36 hours. It's taken Talia 8 days to reach the same number. I doubt Talia will hit anywhere near the 2 million mark in the next 7 days. I'm not saying Grace will win, as anything can happen, but I do see her starting the live shows in pole position. Grace already had over 50 million listens on her Adele cover without any publicity. If Syco can't turn that into sales with all their publicity they might as well give up. } – 18 September 2017 at 9:55 pm
  • User AvatarCherry Analysts (@CherryAnalysts) { Think we'll get 13 tbh If 2 go a week and we have six live shows, that would leave us with a 3 runner final (two groups and a girl 😉 ) } – 18 September 2017 at 11:35 am
