The final will be staged in Wembley Arena and special guests include One Direction, Katy Perry, The Killers, Elton John and Tom Odell so we can see why they’d want to be there.

But the big question is, who will go?

I have to say, I don’t want any of them to leave, but I suspect that Nicholas McDonald may be at risk of leaving the contest, only because his first performance last night – of Beyonce’s hit Halo – did not go well… Read more & comment »
