XFactor 2012: Kye Sones loves "genuine" Rylan Clark (but not Chris Maloney!)

Kye Sones (X Factor 2012)

Kye Sones has insisted he has no problem with Rylan Clark, but the same can't be said for his feelings on Chris Maloney!

Kye became the latest star to leave the show in tonight's X Factor 2012 results, after appearing in the bottom two for the second time with Rylan Clark.

The judges once again sent the vote to deadlock, with Kye leaving having received the fewest public votes.

Speaking to The Sun this week, Kye said: “I couldn’t have done better really — it was just down to the personal preferences of the judges.

“Rylan’s lovely. He’s the same person off the camera as on the camera and he’s genuine.

“Everyone is the same person off and on camera, apart from Chris — and that’s why it’s frustrating for all the contestants.”

But Kye did admit that Chris was one o the most talent singers in the competition.

He said: “Well, it is a singing competition at the end of the day. If it was down to singing, then yeah [he should stay].”

However Kye claimed that Chris was ruining the show's credibility this year.

He suggested: “This year has been the most credible year. You’ve got songwriters. You can’t overlook that.

“James is an amazing songwriter. Ella’s 16 and she can write. I came into it as a songwriter and I hope somebody like that wins it because, for the show, it would be fantastic.”


The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a Best Of British theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from One Direction and Little Mix, as well as one more act being given the boot.
