The X Factor’s Mr Creative himself, Brian Friedman has claimed Cheryl Cole will NOT be the winning judge this year, and that she’ll struggle in coming weeks due to her poor contestant choices.
The shows creative director Brian Friedman, who is in charge of choreographing routines for contestants, told the Daily Star: “Cheryl made some very big errors of choice this year and I don’t think she’ll win.“
He continued: “I think Cheryl went for people who would win votes instead of the better singers, but I think she made a mistake. I would have put Ethan Boroian and Duane Lamonte through. I don’t think Cheryl is pushing them enough. I don’t think she is choosing the right songs.“
And as much as I’m a Cheryl Cole fan, I totally agree with Brian here. Initially, Rikki Loney looked to be a very able contestant, but as he’s proved in the first two weeks, he was boring, dull, and really didn’t entertain us, which ultimately lead to his eviction from the show on Sunday evening.
Despite her poor choices, Joe McElderry is starting to look like the dark horse of the competition, this week heading straight to the top of the bookies odds to win the show, so he is one to watch.
