Yet Another X Factor Fix Claim Emerges After The Final

The X Factor has been hit by even MORE fix claims. Uh-oh.

This time, something fishy allegedly occured before finalists Louisa Johnson and Reggie N Bollie sang their versions of the winner’s song on Sunday night.

As audience members waited at London’s Wembley Arena, they were handed torches to wave. A nice touch, right?

But apparently, they were only told to use them while Louisa was on stage – and not Reggie N Bollie.

‘We were all given torches at the beginning, but were told to use them for Louisa’s performance..’ Tweeted one fan.

Author Emma Kennedy wrote: ‘Crowd were given torches but told they could only use them for louisa. SAD TIMES for R&B.’ Hmmmm.

It wasn’t only this that viewers felt peeved off about.

Considering their styles are so different, some thought it was unfair that both acts were given the same track to cover.

While Rita Ora‘s girl Louisa is used to belting out ballads, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini‘s group Reggie N Bollie are known for their upbeat and energetic performances.

Jess Glynne – who helped Cheryl choose her contestants at Judges’ Houses – clearly agreed that Bob Dylan’s Forever Young wasn’t the right choice for the lads.

She wrote: ‘But how can you give them the same song? That’s not fair.. 2 completely different artists! Hear me…’

More fix claims emerged when Louisa reportedly Tweeted and deleted about her debut single being out – two DAYS before winning.

The message read: ‘X Factor-winner Louisa Johnson’s new single is out now! Get the winner’s single “Forever Young” on iTunes now.’

It’s likely that it was an honest mistake, with the message just being scheduled (with the option of deleting) for the wrong date.

But after a series of awkward gaffes, it’s yet more bad publicity for The X Factor.

Let’s hope things go more smoothly next year…
