after Wagner's heated debate with Cheryl this week on the merits of council estates, let's have a look at the TOP SIX X FACTOR CONTROVERSIES THIS SERIES:
6. Aston's lack of coloured earpiece
All the other memebers of JLS managed to turn up with their designated colour coordinated earpieces/mircophones for this performance of Love You More. SO WHY NOT ASTON? He should be immediately replaced with Lenny Henry.
5. Exclusion of Princes and Rogues
Why oh why did Simon chose to leave this post-modern take on the boyband out of his top four? The geeky one, the geeky one, the one with the glasses, the one with the bow tie and the other geeky one were amongst the cream of Boot Camp.
4. Aiden's "friend's" twitter leak text message
what lovely friends Aiden must have. Half an hour before the results, they send him a nice encouraging text - 'Twitter leak says you're probably going home mate, unlucky.'
BUT WHERE DID THE TWITTER LEAK COME FROM AND HAS IT BEEN PLUGGED? No one has ever mentioned it again
3. John Adeleye's backing dancers
So appauled by the grotesque sexual gyrating exhibited by John's dancers during his snoozesome performance of Zoom, the judges have since insisted that all contestants can only be accompained by their grandmothers doing the foxtrot. Except Katie of course.
2. Zain refuses to dance at Boot Camp
Zain gives a small glimpse of the total disinterest he would eventually show in One Direction by refusing to take part in the group dance lesson. Simon gave him a good talking to, and now he's the new Sean from 5ive.
1. Simon Cowell's hatred of staircases
Gamu's death sentence was instantly forgotten when Simon and Cheryl came close to blows over Cher Lloyd's twirly staircase.
