The X Factor 2018: Predictions and tips for the top ahead of live shows

Tuesday 16th October 2018

Hi X Factor fans,

It's Liam back with my round up of everyone's favourite TV talent show.

And here we have it—we have our finalist for the live shows.

Firstly, Louis, your boys category surprised me, but the knock-out performance over the two days was Dalton. Where did that voice come from? He sang Listen—and we all did. It was outstanding. You, my man, are in the top three for the end. He's currently 10/1 to win the series (bet below).

Over to Robbie. My pleas to him is, please watch the tapes back. I feel like I am picking on youngsters here but A-Star just don’t do it for me. They need time and work, and although their confidence is good, sometimes this is borderline cocky and it is stopping me from warming to them.

The groups won’t win because they did last year, but if Misunderstood are not in final then I’m going to run round Blackpool Tower naked.

Ayda's overs were good but could have been better. Giovanni has an ok voice, but with that image and that annoying face. A West End star? Whoever books you needs to give their head a wobble.

I’ve got to give a massive shoutout to my gorgeous mate, Danny Tetley (see video below). Go on son, I’m so made up for you. It’s been long time coming, now go and shine, be amazing and enjoy your time in the competition.

My betting tip

My winner is Scarlett Lee just because of her incredible voice and comeback story. She's 16/1 to win.

But I obviously want to see Danny Tetley do well (25/1) and also bookies' favourites Misunderstood (5/2) just because of their pure talent and years of fighting for a record deal.

Anyway, it's time to prepare for the live shows, and my advice for the contestants is—be unique, don’t let the show change your originality, and most of all keep the voice rested at all times and drink only water. There’s time to party afterwards.

Much love,

Liam x
