Lou and El went out and partied with members of Modest Management and that X Factor producer that tweeted the selfie of Lou/El at the Robbie Williams concert. (x)
Harry supposedly went out with Taylor if you believe the Examiner, which I barely do, considering they are using the photoshopped picture of Haylor that is really Taylor and Selena to illustrate the story LOL.
Harry Styles was also said to be all smiles as he was leaving the “X Factor” finale set with a happy Taylor Swift as well, hand-in-hand for a late-night date in London.
Entertainment Wise (recognize the name?) also did a post about Taylor and her fears of stalkers and how even Harry can’t keep her safe. It also talked about her bodyguard. Nothing that exciting, just ironic that right after we’re talking about that dude that seems to be a Haylor bodyguard, a post appears about her bodyguard Dennis (not that dude I don’t think).
Other UK X Factor drama – Christopher Mahoney, kicked off last week, was apparently pulled from the finale because he showed up to rehearsals drunk according to the Sun:
REJECT Christopher Maloney pulled out of last night’s final after turning up DRUNK and abusive at rehearsals.
He now risks losing a lucrative slot on the show’s tour next year.
Christopher, 34, arrived for the run-through of the group song “clearly drunk”, according to sources.
After initially refusing to speak, he hit the roof after realising he only had one line in the medley.
The sozzled Scouser — who was Gary Barlow’s wildcard and had made the final three — stormed back to his hotel.
He failed to turn up at 11am for the second rehearsal — and eventually shipped up after noon drunk.
Christopher then said he did NOT want to stay, he wanted to go back to Liverpool, and returned to the hotel to pack.
He found time to have a row with Carolynne Poole, the first contestant out. A source said he was also abusive to other hopefuls and producers.
It was suggested he had been up all night boozing in Manchester.
However, despite claiming he wanted to head home, he RETURNED to the auditorium last night and attempted to get back on the show.
The source said: “He showed up wanting to go on stage but they had to turn him away as they were already on stage and he missed the dress rehearsal.”
Christopher had been livid after learning NONE of the other finalists said they wanted him to win.
He was further embarrassed after they were overheard CHEERING backstage when he was booted off on Saturday.
An X Factor spokesman said: “Chris decided he no longer wanted to be part of The X Factor Final and has gone back to Liverpool.”
- CROONER Christopher won EVERY show in the first seven of the ten weeks of the live finals, it emerged last night.
Meanwhile, eventual winner James, 24, hovered around mid-table mediocrity — slumping to 5.6 per cent of the vote one week.
That changed in week eight when he sang Let’s Get It On, taking 40.7 per cent. After that he topped the table every week. Jahmene, 21, came second in all but week eight.
And they’re talking about a revamp of UK X Factor because it didn’t do so well in the ratings. They always are mixing it up on the US version too. Same with American Idol. I think it’s just hard to keep the show fresh after it’s been on a few years. From the Sun:
A senior source said: “It doesn’t take a genius to work out that the show is not in the best health. We have had some very strong singers this year but the show is feeling in need of a reboot.”
The start of next year’s show — the last in the current ITV deal — is set to be moved back to the weekend after kids return to school to make it more talked-about by young fans.
Saturday shows will start earlier as ratings dwindle after 10pm.
And it is understood arena auditions will be axed — with the return of try-outs in nondescript rooms underlining the eventual finalists’ rags-to-riches stories.
ITV bosses have booked crisis talks with show guru Simon Cowell for next month when he returns from the US version to start filming Britain’s Got Talent.
Bosses want him to star again but his US diary makes that tricky.
A second source said that could be fixed by dropping the mentoring aspect — leaving Cowell with just a judging role and allowing him to fly back and forth.
They said it would also make evictions more tense, adding: “Judges always vote to save their own acts.”
Further changes already flagged up include changing the judges, with Tulisa Contostavlos and Gary Barlow in the firing line — and Sharon Osbourne waiting in the wings for a sensational return.
Latest viewing figures show the audience for this Saturday night’s crucial show plunged to a seven-year low of 9.7 million.
