Laura White has been booted off X-Factor in a shocking result which left her in the bottom two acts to face the judges vote. Laura was sent home in favour of Spanish diva Ruth. Simon Cowell admitted “I have no idea why you two girls are in the bottom two, something must have went terribly wrong tonight. You were not the worst singers tonight!”.
Laura may have received less votes from the public due to recent press coverage of her relationship with X-Factor executive. The Sun exposed Laura and her partner, Mathew Firsht which has caused issue with her participation in the show and her lauded ‘favourite’ status in the media. Judge Danni Minogue ealier this week had announced that Laura was HER favourite to win this years show over her own two acts. Laura’s fellow contestant Ruth Lorenzo has struggled to gain votes, not being from this country and not having an area or ‘region’ rooting for her place.
Has Laura become a victim of the Moral Politics Brigade? Have the press had influence over public voting by raising questions about her to have a relationship with a show exec? Surely the immoral thing here is that Laura, arguable the most talented singer on the show has lost her place due to the press ‘politics’ about her private life?
What is your opinion? How DID Laura end up with the lowest amount of votes?
