Simon Cowell Rejects Marcus Canty as Viable X Factor Contender

by at . Comments

With Rachel Crow fans still still buzzing over Nicole Scherzinger's decision to send the most recent elimination episode to a deadlock, resulting in the ousting of this cute contestant, Simon Cowell has now taken it upon himself to anger Marcus Canty supporters.

Speaking to reporters this week, the judge scarcely even acknowledged the singer as an X Factor contender, despite his presence in the final four, saying:

"I think it's quite clear that it's down to three people now. And it's Melanie, Josh and Chris."

Canty, of course, has been stuck in the bottom two for three consecutive Thursdays, but he remains hopeful that he can pull an upset.

"For me to think for one second in my mind that I don't deserve to be here will be killing myself," he says. "This is my dream too. No matter what people think, I'm up here. This is my dream. And that's why I keep fighting to make it to the top."

That certainly is the right attitude. Who do you think will win The X Factor?

It is obvious that Melanie Amaro will win. Simon's people will always win.

I think Melanie Amaro SHOULD win but Chris Rene probably will because of his sob story. I'm worried about someone with only a few months sober coming into so much money. Dangerous situation.
