I was channel flicking and just watched the last 3 performances, it is the final after all.

Beyonce just showed what the X Factor really is (and Y and Z factors for that matter).

None of the finalists are fit to be in the same building as her (and neither are WestlifeBoyzone for that matter).

Thats why it seemed strange that she'd say it.

Yes, because given they've not twenty minutes ago reminded us what they do with all the rejects, the first thing I want to do is apply for X-Factor 2009.

I'm going to need a few more weeks to fine tune my sob story before I commit it to an application form.

Well obviously. But the point was hearing her in isolation she was hailed as "world class" but nobody can claim that after hearing her sing alongside a genuine world class artist.

She cant lose though...surely...

Beyonce earns all kinds of kudos for managing that song live. It sounds strained even on record, so to belt it out as a guest on a talent show is pretty impressive, although she did remove one of the choruses to make it a little easier

Overall though, an excellent performance, that makes even more a mockery of the hype that surrounded Britney.

At freakin' last.

Egg should have gone 10 weeks ago.

Shouldn't Vickers be running on to comfort him now?

The little fella has obviously been told the result beforehand, he looks like hes been blubbing his eyes out backstage.

God this version of halelujah is ******* appalling, I bet they call it 'the song from shrek'

Blloody hell, cringworthy

Such a great song, which is tarnished by the X factor tag. Alex should win, but she is too similar to Leona, so JCB will win
