After technical issues upset the first live show – the wrong voting phone numbers were displayed on screen – it was decided the acts would have to sing their ‘save me’ songs again the following evening, with viewers being given another chance to vote and the result being postponed until tomorrow night’s show. Simon went to the effort of explaining the problem on Twitter in detail.
A lot of you noticed there were some problems with the voting numbers at the end of the show tonight…you were right!
Simon has also revealed he’s going to set Squiddly and Diddly up with their own Twitter account, so watch this space for more detailed support of his X Factor acts. Yes, we’d call on cute puppies to encourage votes too Si!
