Oh my gosh, tonight’s X Factor was just fantastic! Olly Murs is through to the final – woo hoo! He deserves it! Sadly Stacey Solomon didn’t get through to the Final tomorrow, but third place was a great place for our Essex Girl!

Olly was fabulous – ‘Superstition’ which got him through to his first audition, was 100 times better! The judges agreed saying:

Louie Walsh said he has “Definitely got the X Factor!

Dannii Minogue said “Spectacular…. Brilliant!”

Cheryl Cole said he is an “Entertainer…. You thoroughly deserve your place in the final”

Simon Cowell added that Olly was the “Best risk I’ve ever taken…. On the biggest night you gave the performance of your life”

And then the duet with Robbie Williams, well, what a hit! They sang together in unison and were the perfect match. Olly IS the next Robbie, as they are so similar – they both can sing, dance and perform for an audience. This is a show that is looking for an ‘X Factor’ performer and a new pop star and Olly has everything that this Country now needs. Robbie is a huge fan of Olly, and it showed in their performance of ‘Angles’ which is Robbie’s biggest hit of all time. What a choice of song!

If you are voting for Olly, please leave your comments/good luck messages below….

Joe does have a great voice for his kind of song – ballads mainly and he does those well. George Michael was fantastic, it was not a proper duet and a Elton John track which was unexpected. Stacey has a beautiful voice and her performance with Michael Buble was fabulous, as were her single performances – she far outdid all her previous ones and was on top form. However, Olly was the star, with a great soul voice, great tracks and a visually exciting routine.

Olly’s third performance was the second one that won us over weeks ago ‘Fool in Love’ by Tamyra Gray which is a great Saturday night song. I cannot help it but I don’t want to listen to slow songs on a Saturday night – I like them in their place and I do buy them – but I like to hear jazzy, dancy numbers and that is why Olly is the one for us!

Big Olly Murs fans Robbie Williams, 4th place X Factor contestant Danyl, Simon Cowell, Alan Carr and from what we have seen on the Xtra Factor, many more in the celebrity world behind him, Olly just has to win it! Watching the Xtra Factor tonight, it was clear that some have moved away from Joe to Olly and those voting for Stacey Solomon have now moved over to Olly, although we know that he already has a huge following, as he has got through to the final 2 and has 3 times the amount of facebook fans compared to Joe – this says a lot! We have voted for him all the way and said 3 months ago that he was going to be the winner!

Now Stacey has left the competition at a wonderful 3rd place, which she should be very proud of, I call to all you who voted for Stacey and all you who live in Essex and London, to vote for Olly. Every vote counts and please, please vote just as many times as you can, as we need him to win!

Olly’s family must be over the moon tonight – I screamed, so I bet they did! And I admire the efforts from his Mum, Vicky Lynn, as she has not been well, yet pulls out all the stops to help her son. If Olly wins he can help his Mum with doctors and take his Grandma to Graceland – let’s hope it all works out for this genuine Essex boy and his family!

Olly’s support tonight at the University in Colchester was wonderful – we had a chance to go, but sadly could not make it – hope to go tomorrow and come back with good news!

More news about Olly Murs …..

What would he like more than anything in the world – Olly said “A new car – he currently has an L reg 1993 car –a fiat Cinquencento which he says is old school and his style of car, but he would like a new flashy car.

In his week 10 X Factor diary he was filmed in a new pair of pants that were bought for him saying “Look at these bad boys – I haven’t got a six pack just a normal hairy body – I am pretty paranoid about my body” all while walking around in his pants. His room was filmed as a mess, and he apologised, but he is so cheeky we forgive him and don’t expect he is that messy normally.

His sister Fay Murs lives in Surrey and says that she can “see Olly as a Superstar” We agree!

Good luck Olly – we will be voting for you!
