Rhydian: Final Songs / Reasons to Vote for Rhydian # 1324

Stars on Sunday moves one day forwards and switches channels to ITV. Rhydian will sing three hymns on the show this Saturday. Oh Holy Night, You Raise Me Up (with Katherine Jenkins for some reason) and Somewhere again. The highlight of the show will be Kylie possibly committing career suicide singing Better the Devil You Know with tuneless, bandy legged Scot, Leon.

Apart from the obvious star quality, looks, baritone voice and dignified behaviour...The Silver Knight must win the Singing Joust because he has a burning desire to become a star. He doesn't want victory to escape poverty, right past wrongs, because he hates his life or because he received a message in a dream from his dead pet rabbit telling him to enter. He wants to become a star. This is actually quite a good reason.
Of course we want our minstrels to have a back story and to have struggled, but we want them them to have that desire for fame. A positive reason for wanting stardom, not negative.
Did you ever hear Elvis saying, “Uh...I'm doing this for my little baby twin brother Jesse who died during childbirth, Ma'am” No of course not!

The only other contestants that seem to have this fire, once you ignore the dreadful bullying backstory that the show's producers have hammered out time and again, are Same Difference. They want to entertain you so bad it hurts. They love being on the stage. That and the fact that Louis (a man who has cursed the world with Boyzone and Westlife) dislikes them should make us wish them well and maybe send a vote their way too. Say one vote for every ten you give Rhydian. If every Rhydian fan did this then Leon could end up third.
Think about it.

I´ve got a very bad feeling about this Mr. B. I´m afraid Rhydian is being setup.

The picture ISN'T Rhydian as far as I know
Not sure about a set up - but You Raise Me Up is an odd choice for a Duet and Somewhere wasn't his best vocal performance. You would have thought a reprise of Phantom or my favourite GTPS would have suited his cause better.
Get the boy back in his glitter suit, get him stomping around the stage doing what he does best.

To be honest I think SD have the choices best suited to their style

Making him sing somewhere (again) in the final is truly idiotic (if not on purpose). Just take a look at his last 3 official videos in YT; same suit, same type of song... No wonder his view counts dropped dramatically. You´ve got an extraordinary talent unlike anybody ever appeared on XF and yet you do everything possible to marginalize/alienate him.
