XFactor 2012: Simon Cowell predicts "interesting" UK final

Simon Cowell (Britain's Got Talent 2012)

X Factor boss Simon Cowell has predicted an "interesting" final on The X Factor UK this year.

The music mogul is no longer a judge on the series but has certainly been keeping a close eye on the live shows!

Writing on Twitter after the latest live show in the States, Simon said: "Very interesting end coming up for X factor in the uk. I think the final is going to be very interesting! I have my own favourite."

And in a rather obvious dig at Christopher Maloney, Simon called on voters to vote for the singers who could become stars.

He tweeted: "To everyone voting in the uk tonight. Please vote for who you believe could be a star next year. It's in your hands."

It seems like Simon was chatting to his fellow producers in the UK as he wrote the messages, later adding: "This is one of those nights when I have to talk to London from la. that's why at five am I am sending out tweets."

And for those of you watching the US series, Simon also teased some changes of the final that side of the Atlantic too.

He said: "The final in America could be our closest yet. There may be more than two acts in the final. And you never know what could happen."


The X Factor 2012 continues tonight on ITV1 and ITV1HD, with the final five acts sing two tracks each with Abba and Motown themes.

Sunday's results show will see one more act get the axe, and there will be performances from Rhianna and Bruno Mars.
