He's also overusing his falsetto in his performances way too much. And his falsetto isn't even that strong.
Completely agree and he is just really unlikeable

Completely agree!

He has a great voice and he knows how to use it but I also have the feeling that he's simply "overusing" it all the time. It can be a bit unbearable from time to time.

Wow, Simon applauded his falsetto... lol

That advice given by Madness should have been heard by Nicole Scherzinger VERY CLOSELY :D

I can't believe they are ripping off the John Lewis advert for the winner's single! What a lazy choice.

Vault's version of "One Day I'll Fly Away" is incredibly beautiful though! - But didn't Ed Sheeran actually write the winning entry? - I am confused!

I think there seems to be some confusion, I don't think anyone ever said these were the winners singles?

So we are going to hear another song by those two?

I am honestly confused...

X-Factor didn't pull off in Germany; I actually have not really a clue how the finals look like.

I love Saara, and really want her to win. But.....Matt got a better song in the final which will seal it for him

I'm assuming this year the winner will sing their single after being announced as the winner

Isn't that a stupid move? - To vote for a candidate whose "potential winning entry" hasn't been heard yet?

Both contestants are likeable and talented! I would love to see one of them representing UK in Eurovision but it is not going to happen of course (unless Saara returns to Finland and pulls a Ruth Lorenzo..)

I agree. The guests are totally not interesting.. OK i get it, Little Mix are very popular and won the X Factor a while ago but Madness? :-? Kylie so random!

Kylie is random? - She got a new album, a new single out; she's one of the most successful female artists in the UK, had plenty of #1s and she's a stunning and incredible entertainer.

Don't shun diversity. ;) Madness are an iconic act in the UK.

Matt is sooooooooo going to win.

He was really great tonight (a bit too much falsetto for my taste, though).
He got the mum's vote.
He is not a foreigner and didn't struggle as much as Saara straight from the beginning.

BUT.. and that's the winning factor if you ask me, Matt performed "One Day I'll Fly Away" which is not only a very amazing song but also very popular and on heavy rotation in the UK. The song's is currently in people's mind, it's been heard several times due to advertisement while Saara's choices today showed diversity but were also "more random" than Matt's.

Saara was the last chance to give the X Factor some credibility. Nothing will come of him.

At least she doesn't have to sing some awful Ed Sheeran song

Typical Ed Sheeran snoozefest.

Actually glad Saara doesn't have to release this. :lol:
