cowellLet’s face it, this year’s X Factor semi-finalists are a bit of a disappointment. Well that’s what Simon Cowell seems to think.

Out of Joe McElderry, Danyl Johnson, Stacey Soloman and Olly Murs, he claims there are no “big belters,? such as in series past. But can anyone really live up to Leona Lewis? Well that was always going to be a tough task.

“I won’t know if any of the finalists will be stars until I get them in the studio,? Cowell says. “I’m happy with them but they’re different.?

This year’s winner is expected to sing Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin,’ a popular tune which McElderry has already sung. But Cowell claims to have made up his mind just yet.

In the meantime, we eagerly await the show’s drawn-out advert-riddled semi-final.
