X Factor 2011: Janet Devlin 'most listened to' finalist

Despite being heralded by Gary Barlow as having the performance of the series last week, Marcus Collins is the least listened to contestant according to listener figures calculated by Last.fm. In fact, it’s Northern Irish star Janet Devlin who music lovers can’t seem to get enough of.

According to Last.fm data, Janet Devlin is more than 10 times as popular as bottom of the charts Marcus, based on listener figures. The Risk were a shock exit earlier this month, could Marcus be next?

The return of Frankie to tour?

Quote:
Frankie Cocozza has reportedly been offered a spot on The X Factor arena tour.
The teenage singer was axed from the ITV competition last week after allegedly bragging about his cocaine use.
Although the controversial star is expected to be left off the lineup when X Factor bosses make an official announcement in the near future, sources claim that Cocozza could still make an appearance on the jaunt.

"If he keeps his nose clean there will be a place for him," an insider told The Mirror.
Cocozza is said to have revealed to friends that he is planning to make a return.
He yesterday claimed that he finds drugs "vile" and was removed from the show after a "slip-up".
The X Factor UK tour is due to begin in February 2012.

Totally disgraceful if he is allowed go....And then they wonder why the show is going down the tubes when they do this possible turn about rubbish!

"Keep his nose clean" ??? Are they for fcuking real?
He couldn't even do that IN the house, never mind outside it!

I know!! Bring back Simon right! At least that man cares about the music. It is like without Simon this year is just a soap opera with incidental singing and all of the sudden the X Factor is all about money .

In all seriousness the X Factor has allowed us to see Gary Barlow and Kelendria's real personalities and it is like the picture of Dorian Gray

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Picture_of_Dorian_Gray (for the Janet Haters)


By the way moved from the prediction thread:

Obviously Rhydian, JLS and Leona have had successful careers as singers.
Alexandra seems to be doing quite well.
Eoghan Quigg is in Panto in Northern Ireland.
Diana Vickers is singing in the West End.
Jedward are making a living doing something (what exactly?).
Stacy Solomon is a kid's TV presenter I think.

What other X Factor people are making a living in entertainment?

Seriously? Money is what X Factor has always been all about. Especially where Simon is concerned.

Frankie is such a nice chap! I met him at the weekend and he could put the papers to shame! he likes his drinking and what not but to talk to as a person he is lovely.

I also met The Risk... Frankie was by far nicer! Some of those have "head up my ass" syndrome!

1. No matter how together his act gets, he still won't be able to sing. Maybe he will grow out of being a vile obnoxious little twat, but judging by his Father I doubt it.

2. 18 is not that young, he's an adult and should act like one.

3. Most people on the thread were Kitty fans by the end, she won people over because she could sing! (And Louis always works wonders with controversial acts)

One Direction's Harry Styles is dating 'The Xtra Factor' presenter Caroline Flack.

The 17-year-old pop star is reportedly smitten with the TV host – who is 15 years his senior – after the pair first shared a kiss at an 'X Factor' party last month and they cemented their relationship with a romantic dinner date at London's St Martin's Lane hotel on Tuesday.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Caroline and Harry attended a showbiz bash, then went for a meal at the Asia De Cuba restaurant.

"They were clearly enjoying being together and didn't seem to care who saw them. Two other friends joined them while they were eating but it was clear they only had eyes for each other.

"Earlier in the evening, Caroline was in the lobby of the hotel on her phone waiting for Harry to arrive. Later they didn't try to hide the fact that they were jumping in a cab together either."

Last week, Harry's bandmate Louis Tomlinson revealed Harry had a girlfriend but refused to name Caroline, only saying: "Harry's found 'The One' now."

Harry has made no secret of his crush on Caroline, recently revealing he would love to take her on a date to McDonald's although he is worried about competition from her co-presenter Olly Murs.

He said: "Caroline is very nice. I do have a crush on her. If she liked me I'd love to take her out. How about McDonald's?

"Apparently she's seeing Olly Murs so I wouldn't want to share her with Olly."

Frankie Cocozza - who was booted out of 'The X Factor' following his drug boasts - will not be part of the show's upcoming live tour, it was announced today.

Axed contestants The Risk, Kitty Brucknell and Johnny Robinson will be in the money as they join remaining finalists on the bill.

Nine acts will take to the road calling at 14 different venues from February to April next year for 'The X Factor' 2012 shows.

Tickets are already on sale for the shows, prior to the announcement of the acts who will be taking part in the tour which begins on February 25 at Manchester's MEN Arena.

Also on the tour are Misha B, Janet Devlin, Marcus Collins, Craig Colton, Little Mix and Amelia Lily.

Little Mix are the first girl group to make it through to the tour.

Misha B said: "Last year I was busking on the streets of Manchester and now to be touring around the UK is just sensational."

Brucknell said: "Being on the tour means everything to me, it's been my dream since I was a little girl to perform somewhere like Wembley or the O2 and now that dream gets to be realised."

I read that today on Digital Spy - they refuse to say where that latest update comes from exactly (deliberate so that no one is blamed later for a change of plan?). Who stated this exactly? I tried hard myself to find out but no websites are saying.
And there's nothing to say that later they won't go ahead early next year and re-introduce him back to the tour as a last minute attraction.
Some attraction!

All they have done is produce the current list of supposed acts on tour next year.
As the previous news stated "If he keeps his nose clean there will be a place for him" - wouldn't be the first time in any way a tour has been changed.

FEARS were raised for Frankie Cocozza yesterday after he secretly snorted cocaine ahead of another all-night hotel party.


He also helped down two £400-a-time Belvedere Vodka magnums and £200 worth of Jack Daniel's before partying in a room with model Biannca Lake.


The Sun told yesterday how Frankie was promised a slot on The X Factor tour if he cleaned up his act.
Instead he headed out on the town with band members of X Factor rejects The Risk.
A friend said: "Frankie let himself down again. From somewhere he got hold of some coke. He was snorting it secretly behind the backs of his pals."
There was no suggestion The Risk or Biannca used the drug or even knew of its existence.


In the early hours Frankie and his pals stumbled out of the Aura club — which has a strict zero tolerance on drugs. They returned to their London hotel and despite looking annihilated, Frankie found the energy to romance Biannca.
They partied all night and emerged from the hotel separately and bleary-eyed at 10am yesterday.


A source said: "Frankie loves the drink and the girls.
"But the fact he has again taken cocaine will alarm his friends and family."
