  • User AvatarJoe { Shan has all the hallmarkings of a Plan A. A brilliant singer undoubtedly. This may be far fetched but hear me out.... 1)Robbie referred to her as "gold plated". It ties in with the new X factor logo that is now gold. 2)Ayda gave her 100%. Shan's earings if you take a closer look had 100% written on them. Subtle signs of tptb intentions? For me many great singers have gone before on X factor and not won. Others this year have stronger back stories. I have a sneaky feeling that duo put together by Simon could go far. Aailiyaha and Acacia. Irish vote is a big strength so can't rule out Brendan. An act mentored by Louis or Robbie to win surely. } – 18 September 2018 at 5:03 pm
  • User AvatarThe Juan { I think you're right. However, I cant see her winning and at 3/1 the price is a bit short. I see tptb placing her on a similar arc to tamera foster, who went out to luke friend just before the semi finals. Really looking forward to who the sofabet team are backing for the win.... } – 18 September 2018 at 2:09 pm
  • User AvatarStarjey { The treatment of Shan shows that she should be the alpha girl going forward, unless the public don't take to her. But who could replace her? Scarlett as Simon's Mentee? Georgia? } – 17 September 2018 at 6:27 pm
  • User AvatarThe Juan { Tonight we saw shanice smith. I said in my post that it will either be brendan or her as the eventual winner.... time will tell how tptb will play this out. I can see both making the final. An interesting note is the large irish act numbers/focus this year. Depending how many progress, would see a large amount of irish voters/interest. Easy for tptb to migrate those votes across to brendan for the win (if he is the chosen one) on the way to and before the final/during lives. } – 16 September 2018 at 10:58 pm
  • User AvatarFudd { So we saw Bella Penfold, Dalton Harris tonight and Shan (presumably Shan Smith) - not quite the plethora we witnessed yesterday. The only words which spring to mind from Bella's audition is "puppy with oversized paws" and "contrived" which hardly feels like a way to set up the Alpha. She gets the Golden Buzzer at the Six Chair Challenge but we know that means nothing from Britain's Got Talent. Dalton was treated far more kindly, emphasising his nerves, financial struggles of the past and being alone. From what I can recall not much emphasis on his vocal, though. Shan got the pimp slot - the second time someone singing Never Enough has been given that honour in a week. They were more focus on her singing with Robbie putting her through on her 'talent' plus he rather than Louis or Ayda met the act backstage - the glow of the head judge there. The auditions end next week and we still have quite a few acts to see if I recall correctly: The Overs: Ricky (if not Ricky John) and Claire O'Loughlin (who, looking on Youtube may have taken part in The Voice Ireland?) Girls: all of them have now been shown Boys: JSOL and Thomas Pound Groups: All four members of VibeFive; Gaia Cauchi, Ellie Grant plus Billie and Charlie Tomo (DejaVu) who will make up Sweet Sense and Panda Ross It looks like the Groups might be a key focus next week. As an aside, did anyone notice... } – 16 September 2018 at 9:09 pm
