Sam Bailey New Favourite to Win X-Factor
After an impressive performance over the weekend, Sam Bailey has become the new favourite to win the X Factor.
Bailey, Sharon Osbourne’s last remaining overs’ hopeful, has impressed judges every week with her gutsy performances which have included covers of Celine Dion, Jennifer Rush and Barbara Streisand.This weekend saw her pull of an impressive rendition of Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer’s No More Tears and as a result she is new the new favourite to win the show with odds of 2/1 available from multiple bookies.
Bailey has knocked former favourite Tamera Foster off the top spot. The weekend saw Foster fall into the bottom two with Kingsland Road. However, Foster did manage to retain some dignity, she won the sing-off and judges Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh send Road home.
Speaking after last weekend’s episode William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said, “Just a couple of days ago, we could see no other winner but Tamera, however Sam Bailey looks like she’s the one to beat now!”
Foster is now joint second favourite to win alongside Nicholas McDonald with odds of 3/1.
