44 to WIN – The Direlist #8
Through the night we’re looking at the WORST 10 live performances on this year’s X Factor.
At the time one of the members of The Risk, a well educated guy who realised he’d be better being the manager of a small supermarket than being with these guys, decided to leave. We thought he was crazy, but sure enough after a historic fourteenth new launch “The Risk” were deemed too risky and were ditched by the public just days later. The public, who just couldn’t remember who any of them were and whether they were rejected soloists from the last 16 who were being allowed back in for a special twist where they had to be voted in on Tuesday in order to make a band that would be formed of contestants who left at the bootcamp stage but also (etc) decided it was their turn to go. Even with the help of ramped up backing vocals, this was pretty ropey. This was their penultimate performance.
