Dear X Factor...

...Your 'don't vote Katie out ' rule is starting to become obvious. Dannii is clearly the only judge with ears and backbone. Katie Waissel is NOT interesting, entertaining and clearly not who the public want to see again based on the epic amount of jeering from the crowd and being in the bottom two three times. I admit Treyc probably wouldn't have won but she deserved the chance to stay longer.

Simon Cowell has admitted he enjoys controversy - but he began the X Factor as a TALENT show. Clearly he is happy to go against what he originally believed in for the sake of headlines.

Cheryl Cole totally copped out - though I understand why she didnt want to choose and it wouldnt have changed the result anyway. But even so - she was asked the question and should have answered it.

Louis Walsh called Katie "style over substance" and keeping her on was dumb.

Writing about Katie Waissel is interesting, granted. I don't want to be one of those internet bullies I keep hearing about - but when a single act who isn't ever going to be the next big thing is blatantly allowed to break the rules then continue through the competition after having fluffed her words and sang out of tune, people will be pissed off. Simples. As such, I will still be reporting on her antics - but doing so as impartially as I can manage.

Well, I'll try.

It's not that I dislike her as a person - because we dont even know who she is. But that is where the dislike comes in. That and her singing is average at best when other people - like Gamu - were denied a place in the live shows. Its not so much the feeling that she stole Gamu's place because that could have been blamed on any of the girls. Its simply that she is not good enough, IMO.
