Shan’s The New X Factor Favourite After 1st Live Show

After the first weekend of X Factor live shows, two contestants were sent packing and one stole the show.

Shan is the new 7/4 favourite to win after her emotional rendition of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ had the judges and audience on their feet. We quickly slashed her odds from 4/1 as punters began to latch onto the 25-year-old Croydon native.

Dalton Harris also took on an iconic song for his first performance, ‘Life on Mars’ by David Bowie and it saw him take over second place in the betting after he shortened into 6/1 from 7/1.

Previous 11/4 favourites Misunderstood have suffered a drift and find themselves tied for third in the betting alongside Irish hopeful Brendan Murray. The duo performed yet another original track for the opening weekend which was themed ‘This Is Me’ however they faded into the background on punters minds forcing their odds to be eased to 7/1.

Brendan Murray received mixed reviews for his take on Ariana Grande’s ‘Break Free’, Louis, Robbie and Ayda all praised the former Hometown member, but Simon Cowell branded it boring. As a result the Galway native’s odds have been pushed out to 7/1 from his 1/3 second favourite status.
