I guess the simmering resentment present amongst the great part of the population towards whoever was going to win the X Factor should come as no surprise. In many ways I have to agree that Simon Cowell has rather spoilt the fun of the Christmas number one by monopolising it for the last four years, however the way that some people are going on about Alexandra Burke's version of Hallelujah really is a dreadful type of snobbery.
Any number of people and Facebook groups are bemoaning the fact that Alexandra has done a cover of Jeff Buckley's song, whilst ignoring that Jeff Buckley was no better than Alexandra Burke because actually all he did was do a cover of what is a Leonard Cohen song.
I heard on the radio earlier someone moaning about that X Factor "killing original music". Presumably Jeff Buckley was guilty of this too ?
There might be some mileage in trying to avoid the X Factor winner being number one in order to prove that Simon Cowell does not have a divine right to the Christmas number one, but lets just drop the attacks on Alexandra Burke and the song choice. In all honesty, she has a great voice and her version of the song is actually not to bad at all.
