It seems to me that the betting results were predicting roughly the correct order each week, even down to Honey G landing at 4 or 5.
It's interesting that Ryan was voted off even though Honey G had the least vote. He will be pissed off when he sees that. Also I was right. If they had kept the lifeline vote for an extra week it would have showed Honey G in the bottom 3. So that was a great way to manipulate the votes.
Shafted by the series was Gifty and Ryan, Sam Lavery and Four of Diamonds, though they should have gone earlier.
Of course the results don't explain why Honey G got as high as four in the voting.
Clearly something bad happened to Saara for her vote to drop from Saturday night's freeze to the close of play. Or something happened to Matt to increase the vote.
Was it Nicole's duet with him? Or homophobic voters? After seeing her partner? Or just some bad song choices to sing at the final for her?
What happened to both candidates singing the winners single before the voting closed? It was always done before like that. I sometimes thought it decided the winner. Though looking at the voting after perhaps not.
And I have to agree that single is crap! Not because Matt is singing it. It just is. I can't work out if it is worse than Forever Young
