Will X Factor be boring without Jedward?

John and Edward

John and Edward have finally been voted off X Factor, after weeks of entertaining millions of people.

They became the seventh act to get the boot from the show after losing a sing-off with Olly.

The twins have split opinion with some people saying they can't sing or dance, but lots of others love them!

Did you vote for them? Will the show be as fun without them? Do you think they'll become pop stars anyway?

Unfortunately this topic is now closed but there are Comments pages on other subjects on the main Chat index.

Your comments

"Yes! John and Edward were very entertaining. I mean I want Joe or Stacy to win but when they performed it would brighten up the show. It is a real shame and I hope they do well in the future. They should take up TV presenting, like a mini Ant and Dec."

Ara, 11, Edinburgh, Scotland

"I think they'll be TV presenters or something. I absolutely hated them on X Factor but they did brighten it up."

Sasha, 10, Birmingham, England

"Without Jedward, X Factor would be a bit boring because they are very entertaining and funny. Although they can't sing and it is wasting peoples opportunity of making a dream come true."

Louise, 12, London, England

"I hate Jedward! The X Factor is a singing competition - not an entertainment competition. If they can get through why can't all the other rubbish acts go through? Now Brian the choreographer can focus on Olly, Stacey, Danyl, Joe and Lloyd."

Nikhill, 9, Uxbridge, England

"Of course it will be! They were my favourite act! I was in tears when Dermot said their name. The other contestants barely entertain us anyway because they just stand there and sing!"

Amy, 11, Norwich, England

"I think it will be quite boring - they lightened up the show."

Kaitlyn, 11, Aberdeen, Scotland

"X Factor will be boring without Jedward but it was time for them to go and they took the results graciously."

Saba, 14, Buckinghamshire, England

"It's gonna be boring without the twins even if it was time for them to leave. The stage is not going to rock any more."

Adam, 11, Suffolk, England

"OF COURSE! Well at first I thought these guys are rubbish, but as time went by I started to like them more! It's going to be boring without them."

Daniella, 11, Bristol, England

"Yay!! Jedward are gone!"

Serge, 10, Essex, England

"Yes, it will be boring without Jedward because they were cool."

Nathan, 11, Wales

"No, of course not. They are the worst singers you can ever hear! People only kept them in for a laugh - they were rubbish."

Chloe, 11, Fife, Scotland

"To be honest, the first time I saw them I didn't like them! I thought they would go out first because the whole point of X Factor is to SING, not to dance (even though they can't!) - that's for 'Britain's Got Talent!' But then they kept on staying in, so I gave up and decided they will never leave. I started liking them because that's the only entertaining performance on X Factor! So I'll miss them, but in a way I am happy because now it's X Factor!!"

Khuluud, 10, London, England

"I think Jedward did make the X Factor very interesting with their amazingly cool performances, and so it will be different without them, but I don't think it would be boring exactly. We've got most of the best singers and that's what makes the show interesting - when there's more than one great singer and you can't decide which one leaves, you're on the edge of your seat."

Jessica, 10, London, England

"I think Jedward made X Factor interesting and it was fun seeing what they came up with each week but they didn't deserve to win!"

Lydia, 12, UK

"Yes, so I'm watching Strictly instead!"

Claire, 12, Dublin, Ireland

"X Factor will be so boring I always sit there and think when are Jedward coming on? They should have a little come back and sing a song."

Charlotte, 9, Surrey, England

"I think Jedward were rubbish and they deserved to go! It is a singing competition! Olly to win!!!"

Bea, 11, London, England

"I think Jedward should have gone out ages ago. They are not even that funny."

Rosie, 10, Manchester, England

"They were rubbish - X Factor will be better with out them. Stacey will win. She is the only good one left."

Elle, 10, England

"I love John and Edward! I know they can't sing but they are very entertaining."

Hannah, 14, Moray, Scotland

"At first I hated them but as the weeks passed they improved and I loved them! It's a shame they've gone, even when I didn't like them I looked forward to watching them again. BRING THEM BACK!"

Megan, 10, England

"Yes! I wanted them to win because they are so funny, but as they have gone out I probably won't watch the X Factor anymore!"

Zara, 12, London, England

"They were entertaining but at the end of the day, it was a singing contest and they couldn't sing! I don't think they should have got this far and that Miss Frank or Lucie should be here instead."

Marigold, 12, Birmingham, England

"Yes it is going to be very dull and boring. I voted for them every week and was sad when they got voted out. I loved Jedward and hope they do well so that I can see them again."

Megan, 9, Caithness, Scotland

"Wow! I was nearly in tears when I saw that the boys were going. They are just so funny and entertaining and they are great at singing and dancing. I wish them the best of luck in the future!"

Brooke, 11, Newcastle, England

"I think John and Edward can't sing that well, but they are very entertaining and I think they should be entertainers a bit like Ant and Dec."

Lucy, 12, Manchester, England

"I think the show will be boring without them in it, but I know them personally , so I know how much they wanted it. They are really great boys!"

Scarlett, 13, County Kerry, Ireland

"Cheryl Cole said they're nice boys so they will be missed that way! But for the singing part, no, they won't be missed... They were doing Ireland proud!"

Alesha, 12, Dublin, Ireland

"It was funny that Jedward went home. Now I am happy and it's made the show better."

Jamie, 11, Basingstoke, England

"I think X Factor will be boring without Jedward because they rock!"

Rushik, 12, London, England

"I did like them, but listen to their performance and close your eyes - no offence, they are rubbish."

Gemma, 10, Suffolk, England

"They were the worst people I have ever seen - they were only put through because of the entertainment. When they did 'We Will Rock You' they shouted it, not sang it. I thought it was a singing competition, I'm am glad they went out."

Ella, 9, Norfolk, England

"Jedward were the best and most entertaining group ever on X Factor - I hope they do well in the future and I think X Factor are going to lose loads of viewers now they have gone!"

Philippa, 12, Stoke-on-Trent, England

"I think that Jedward should have left because X Factor is about singing, not dancing and being funny."

Ben, 9, London, England

I dont think thatfactor will be bad without them.

"It's a singing competition and John and Edward are NOT good enough for X Factor."

Urvi, 11, Middlesex, England

"Oh my gosh! I loved watching Jedward and now they're gone! I might stop watching The X Factor. I loved them!"

Charlotte, 11, Derby, England

"I think that X Factor will be so boring without Jedward - they were the best. I was going to vote for them in the final, but now I'll have to vote for Stacey because my sister is mad about her."

Abbie, 11, Yorkshire, England

Yes, I think it will be boring. Although I didn't like them, there is not much to look forward to now."

Laura, 12, Dundee, Scotland

"All my friends hate them but I love them! They should not have gone! Lloyd should have gone weeks ago!"

Daniel, 11, Burnley, England

"I won't miss them! I don't think they make the show any better at all. They were funny at the beginning, but now when it's getting to the finals someone good needs to win."

Kate, 12, Scarborough, England

"Seriously - John and Edward made my year! I always looked forward to them on a Saturday night and now my weekends are going to be really boring. I only have one more thing to say... BRING BACK JEDWARD!"

Rosie, 13, London, England

"They were absolutely amazing and I was so upset to see them go. Their vocals have improved a bit since going on, but they have amazing performance skills. I'm not watching it again, because it's just boring now."

Kita, 13, Swansea, Wales

"Absolutely. They were entertainment. The show will not be the same without them."

Anisah, 10, Edinburgh, Scotland

"To be honest, I like John and Edward and I think they are very entertaining, but for me, I think they belong to a talent show rather than a singing competition."

Sara, 10, London, England

"It will be boring but it will mean it is a fair competition now because good singers were knocked out because of them. Yes, they are entertaining, but this is a singing show - how about they go on 'Britain's Got Talent? They have a better chance. I have to say it will be boring because you always wonder what they will do each week and the thrill of seeing them making a fool of themselves makes me laugh."

Anna, 10, Stansted, England

"I think X Factor will be super-boring without them, they were really entertaining and I loved them, but I think that they should have gone last week because Olly was the better singer. I like them and would definitely love to see them again."

Emma, 11, Essex, England

"I think Jedward should have been voted off in the auditions. It will be more exciting without them. I think that Olly or Stacey will win."

Alex, 9, Cheltenham, England

"Well, John and Edward were not great but then again they're the ones you most look forward to. This is the best year because of them!"

Zara, 10, Essex, England

"Of course it'll be better without Jedward. Think about it - what would you think if you heard them on the radio?"

Mujtaba, 13, Manchester, England

"No, it won't be boring, it'll be fantastic now those two are gone - they cannot sing or dance. Now all the good acts won't go anymore."

Katie, 13, Newport, Wales

"They were great entertainers but had rubbish voices and X Factor might be a bit boring now. Olly should win."

Ben, 9, Glasgow, Scotland

"I will still watch X Factor but every week I was always waiting for John and Edward. X Factor will be less entertaining without them but I shall still watch it. I wish they were still in though. They were very entertaining."

Meabh, 13, Dublin, Ireland

"I'll miss Jedward and when they come back to Dublin there will be a big party maybe, to show how good they've been."

Aoife, 10, Dublin, Ireland

"I hated Jedward. They should have gone out ages ago - it sort of will be a bit boring. They were rubbish but funny."

Olivia, 9, Lowestoft, UK

"I think they were not good singers but they should be TV presenters. I think Lloyd should win - go Lloyd."

Isabelle, 11, Somerset, England

"John and Edward are boss, but they should of gone on Britain's Got Talent and not the X Factor. They are good entertainers but they can't sing."

Sophie, 12, Liverpool, England

"X Factor was already boring with Jedward. I want to see something new on TV instead of Big Brother, Idols and X Factor. Something where they don't ask you to vote at the end of the show."

Ben, 14, Plymouth, UK

"Yes, I think it will be boring without the twins because they were fun to watch and you looked forward to seeing what they where going to do."

Katie, 12, Portadown, Ireland

"They have no talent whatsoever. However they have been entertaining everyone. It will be a bit dull ... but with actually TALENT in the show now."

Alex, 12, Wem, England

"Can't believe that Jedward went it is shocking that is why I liked it this year!!."

Chloe, 11, Newcastle, England

"Amazing people. Every week they pulled of an amazing act and they just get booed. Think about it. The X Factor will be changed for history! I love Jedward!"

Cian, 10, Essex, England

"The X Factor won't be the same without Jedward!"

Hebe, 8, Kent, England

"Although Olly was the better singer, it will be really dull without Jedward. They're great fun and they make everyone smile. The competition is going to be much less exciting now, and the X Factor is going to lose lots of viewers who only tuned in to see Jedward. Every talent show needs people like Jedward."

Molly, 10, London, England

"I am so glad that they went because they couldn't sing and it was unfair for the acts that were actually good at singing."

Anna, 11, Hampshire, England

"I so don't like Jedward and I'm so glad they are out!!!"

"I think it will be better because they are not funny just annoying."

Dominic, 12, Surrey, England

"I think it will be better without John and Edward because at the end of the day it's a singing competition and I think they should have gone weeks ago! I miss Lucie and Simon Cowell should have voted them off when he had the chance to the first time."

"John and Edward is the only reason I tuned in to X Factor on Saturday."

"I think the X Factor will be better without John and Edward because they don't really entertain people."

Alice, 10, Wiltshire, England

"I think it will DEFINITELY be boring without them, they were the only ones I looked forward to. I don't think I'll watch the X Factor until the final, when Jedward will be on again!!!"

Ellen, 13, Donegal, Ireland

"I don't really like Jedward but the show will be boring for the fans."

Catherine, 13, Belfast, Northern Ireland

"X Factor's gonna be so boring now! I'll just tune in on the final for the last half hour to see who wins! That's it though, nothing else! Jedward, you guys were the best."

Megan, 12, Surrey, England

"I couldn't stand them personally, but they definitely livened the X Factor up."

Fraser, 12, Nottingham, England

"I wanted Jedward to win X Factor from the start. I voted for them every week and on Saturday. Yes x factor will be boring without them. I think they do have a future career as pop stars and I'll be their biggest fan."

Katie, 8, Hertfordshire, England

"I think Jedward were the best out of all of them. They were brilliant and cool. I will miss those guys being on the TV."

Saffron, 9, Essex, England

"It won't be as much fun now, because they are all good so there is no fun."

Lucy, 10, England

"I wish Lloyd would have gone. Jedward were great entertainers and the X Factor will be so boring now, unless all the others start doing crazy dancing!"

Charlotte, 13, Staffordshire, England

"I wanted them to go out. I hate them but it will be kind of boring without them. They can't sing so yeah they deserve it."

Sacdiya, 12, Bristol, England

"No it won't be boring because I know they were entertaining and that but it's a show to make great singers shine out. Jedward couldn't sing, maybe they should have tried out for Britain's Got Talent."

Roxanne, 13, London, England

"John and Edward are awesome! I love watching them every week-I mean who doesn't? X Factor will be never the same again!"

"I think it will be boring without Jedward. They are so cool. I cant believe they're gone."

Aibhínn, 10, Kildare, Ireland

"I think the X Factor will be better! Jedward couldn't sing! They always rapped and ruined lots of great songs, like one of Queen's. They just had to go!"

"No it won't because there are really strong characters in the competition such as Stacey and Olly!"

Laura, 13, Suffolk, England

"No they couldn't sing X Factor is a singing competition if they want to be entertaining then they should go on Britain's Got Talent. Danni made the right choice!"

Bethan, 11, Exeter, England

"I think it's a really good thing that Jedward are gone - they were easily the worst act on the show and I've never liked them. I was actually surprised they got through in the auditions."

Lauren, 12, Cardiff, Wales

"Shame that they went. I think that Lloyd should have gone because Jedward were so much more entertaining. It will be different without them, yes, probably more boring. However, the X Factor is now back to a singing competition!"

Smudga, 13, Hull, England

Honor, 14, Merseyside, England

"I think that now Jedward are out of X Factor, the show can go back to being a singing competition. If you heard them on the radio and couldn't watch their boisterous dance routines everyone would think they were rubbish- they can't even sing in tune!"

Shelley, 13, Middlesex, England

"I think that it will be boring without them because they are always entertaining the viewers and they are funny. I think Louis Walsh was picking good songs for them because they always did well. They were just twins completing their dreams!"

"I didn't like Jedward and I am so happy they are gone because there are a lot better singers in this competition."

Layla, 13, Milton Keynes, England

"I think that John and Edward should not have gone yesterday. I'm not going to watch X Factor again because it will be really boring."

Gpschool, 12, Birmingham, England

"Yes it will be really boring without Jedward. They were the highlight of the show and I looked forward to nothing else on TV except their performance. I'm not watching X Factor anymore."

Katherine, 11, Belfast, Northern Ireland

"I think the X Factor will obviously be boring without Jedward to make the show funny."

Jake, 11, London, England

"I think it will be the same but I will miss their funny jokes. They were never going to win. They should be like Ant and Dec."

Michael, 10, Belfast, Northern Ireland

"I think it will be brilliant without them. They were rubbish and I hated them."

Chloe, 10, Belfast, Northern Ireland

"Yes, it will be boring without them! I love them and they've come such a long way! I hope they go far in life! Publicity will go down so much as some people only watch it for them. My message for Jedward. Keep living the dream, we're here to support you!"

Louise, 11, Surrey, England

Alex, 13, Yorkshire, England

"No it won't because they are rubbish and they cant sing so stop thinking about JOHN AND EDWARD."

Samuel, 10, Warrington, England

"I loved them and I didn't want them to leave. True, they can't sing but they were entertaining."

Nawal, 11, Surrey, England

"I will miss the entertainment but after all it's a singing competition, so not really. But good luck in the future!!"

Ahminah, 13, Bradford, England

"It will be boring without them but they can't sing."
