Katie needs help to avoid X Factor elimination in Beatles week

| 18.11.2010

Katie Waissel could not have picked a more appropriate song for her upcoming X Factor performance if she could choose from any track ever written.

With all contestants tasked with putting their own stamp on songs from the legendary catalogue of the Beatles, Katie faces a tough ask if she is to remain in the competition.

She has survived the sing-off for the past two weeks and four times over the course of all of the live shows.

Therefore, it is entirely appropriate that she has opted to sing ‘Help!’ in a bid to stay in the X Factor.

Katie is the hefty 5/6 favourite to be the ninth act eliminated from the X Factor and her lack of popularity with voters mean that she will need all the help she can get to avoid being in the bottom two again.

Paije Richardson faces arguably the biggest challenge after being given the iconic song ‘Let It Be’.

This may prove especially difficult to make his own and anything but a faultless performance could see him facing a sing off for the first time.

Therefore, Paije could be a tempting bet at 4/1 to be the next X Factor eviction.

When it comes to the leading fancies in the X Factor winner betting odds market, Matt Cardle is following in the footsteps of fellow Essex boy Ollie Murs last series and singing ‘Come Together’.

However, it is Cheryl Cole’s other two girls aside from Katie, Rebecca Ferguson and Cher Lloyd, who have the songs that could potentially steal the show.

Rebecca is singing ‘Yesterday’ and Cher has chosen ‘Imagine’, which is sure to raise eyebrows as it is not technically a Beatles song.

Good performances from the pair could result in their prices to win the show drop, with Rebecca currently 9/4 and Cher 8/1. See the full X Factor winners betting odds market.
