X Factor 2018: Danny Tetley hits out at ‘questionable’ song choices

X Factor 2018 contestant Danny Tetley has hit out at ‘questionable’ song choices on the show.


Last weekend’s live episode saw Danny take aim at some of the tracks picked for ‘Guilty Pleasures’ week.

Songs performed included classic hits by iconic artists including Elvis Presley and Whitney Houston.

And he’s standing by those comments, saying on ITV’s This Morning on Friday: “If it was opera week, you wouldn’t have someone singing Slipknot, if it was Motown week, you wouldn’t sing Frank Sinatra.

“I heard the others who were singing songs that were not their guilty pleasures. They were staying in their comfort zones when I went out of mine.”

He claimed a number of other contestants were on his side, adding to hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford: “A lot of the contestants have agreed that it wasn’t their guilty pleasure.”

And Danny went on to suggest this Saturday night would see more unlikely song picks.


“It’s fright night, it’s Halloween, so maybe a few questionable songs this week as well!” he said.

Meanwhile, Danny confidently declared he knew the outcome of the show already, ruling himself out of the running.

“I’m not going to win it. I know who is going to win it,” he announced. “I think the final three will be Dalton [Harris], Shan [Ako] and Scarlett [Lee]. They’re in a league of their own.”

As Danny says, tonight is Halloween week and the remaining 12 contestants will be attempting to put a spell on the judges with their singing.

Simon Cowell, Adya Williams, Robbie Williams and Louis Tomlinson return to comment on all the performances before lines open for viewers to vote.


It’s expected another two acts will head home in Sunday’s results, which will also feature performances from Liam Payne and James Arthur.

The X Factor 2018 airs Saturday at 8:35PM on ITV and continues at 8:30PM on Sunday.
