Dannii expects trouble from Hope
While Simon Cowell may have high expectations of them, fellow X Factor judge Dannii Minogue believes that all-girl group Hope could end up fighting among themselves as they enter the final rounds of the contest.
Writing in her weekly blog, the Australian singer said: “You go girls, catfight it out till the end. It’s gonna be our singing version of Prisoner Cell Block H!”
She also revealed that Hope singer Raquelle Gracie has been labelled by the show’s insiders as “the female Simon” due to her having a way with words the top judge would be proud of.
However, it would appear that Dannii’s mind is not totally focused on the singing hopefuls.
The 35-year old sister of Kylie admitted to having a soft spot for the show’s host Dermot O’Leary, particularly due to his sensitive nature.
“He cries! He is the new age Metrosexual Man, we love that.”
Dannii’s comments come ahead of the naming of the final 12 acts, though the names of those who have made it through to the live stages of the contest have already been leaked onto the internet.
