X Factor: Dannii ‘At War’ With Simon
According to X Factor insiders, the Australian judge was left in floods of tears after Lucie was voted out on Sunday and has not spoken to the hair-piece since he controversially bottled an opportunity to get rid of the twins he earlier dubbed “a disaster”.
“Backstage on Sunday night it was very frosty and Simon just made things worse by smirking all the time,â€? one of Danniiâ€™s friends told reporters.
He was probably thinking about all that extra money heâ€™s going to earn when Jedwardâ€™s album goes double platinum…
But Dannii suspects that Simon’s plans are more detailed than was first thought. She believes he doesn’t want Jedward to win, but is simply trying to keep the tuneless midgets in the show until the later stages to help ensure victory for one of his contestants.
Cowell wonâ€™t be too worried by the fact that 20,000 fans have vowed to boycott the show (viewing figures for Sundays show reached nearly 17 million.) But furious fan Steven James told The Sun that everyone should vote for John & Edward in a bid to create a disaster for Simonâ€™s post-show record sales.
“It will demonstrate a massive victory for the British public and also that a certain Mr Cowell cannot play God,” said Spartacus â€“ sorry, Steven.
