The X Factor UK is down to the final three: Rak-Su, Grace Davies, and Kevin Davy White. These three acts are amazing and any one of them deserve to win. But it seems to Nicole that there are two clear finalists and it is not her mentee Kevin.
Kevin is awesome. I friggin’ love him. He’s cool, confident, has an amazing voice, and is a badass guitar player. BUT Grace Davies was the favorite to win from the beginning and Rak-Su is insanely popular. Nicole strongly implied that she doesn’t think she’ll win. She told OK! Magazine,
“I know there are a couple of favourites and that’s okay because it’s not always the winners who have the most successful careers. If I don’t win it’s okay.”
That sounds like admitting defeat to me. It’s too bad because Kevin is awesome. I’m sure he’ll get a record deal out of this whole experience. But I have to agree with Nicole that Grace and Rak-Su are forces of nature. It’s going to be one of the two of them. Which one? Right now I’m leaning towards Rak-Su. Groups do very well on the show, after all. But Grace has a huge following. We’ll see.
