TIME to get a few things in proportion.
The X Factor is just a television show, not a matter of life or death.
The elemination of Diana Vickers has probably done her a favour in terms of her future career.
So why was Eoghan Quigg blubbing like a baby when she went out?
And how will he cope if he wins next Saturday’s final?
Diana, 17, was still maintaining she and Eoghan, 16, are just very good friends at her last press conference yesterday.
But that’s not how it looked on Saturday night.
Still sobbing, Eoghan ran on stage to embrace the Lancashire student before she had finished her farewell song.
Diana said: “They all came on with Eoghan and I loved it.
“It looks like a Kodak moment that I’ll have forever.”
But it also robbed her of a proper final goodbye from the studio audience.
Simon Cowell couldn’t say it because he has to focus our attention on The X Factor finalists – not those who have gone out.
But once the dust has settled, Diana is certain to be given a record contract.
Alexandra Burke is a worthy odds-on favourite to win and is the outstanding act left in the competition.
But what the bookmakers describe as “blind regional voting” from Northern Ireland could swing it for second favourite Eoghan.
While JLS are currently a close third in the betting.
Stand by for yet more tears.
