Hi Louis,Don't want anything, but buck your trend and get together with Janet and get a C.D. out, please. She's pretty, cute, innocent, a fantastic vocalist with a unique voice, the world needs Janet!!!! I get goosebumps when she sings, especially 'Wise men say' every bit as good as Elvis or Andy Williams. It's the way she says 'can't' with no Americanism. Am I doomed to never have goosebumps again? Regards Pat Jackson

I agree with Wendy. And the way Sharon acted towards Louis was disgusting and unforgivable. Who could have blamed Louis if HE had thrown water over HER. But he didn't. TO Louis: We will all understand if you do want to quit The X Factor, but please don't go. Every decent-thinking person will want you to stay. If anyone should leave it should be Sharon. Who is she, anyway?

Louis was right this week. NIKKI shouldn't have been eliminated.Her first song WAS beautiful. If it was a single I would love to buy it and I'm sure there are many of us that would. She has a fantastic voice and I'm gutted that we will not see her final video song.I can't help thinking that Leon is getting through by his young good looks rather than his voice which is not as world class as Nikki's. He actually sang quite flat this week.With a bit of slimming down and younger styling, Nikki has a great sexy JLo look and with a voice like that she would go really sky high. She deserves a second chance.Perhaps its not a good idea to mix the 'oldies' with the teeny bopper talent because it proves that the latter will always win. SAME DIFFERENCE should not be in the final either. they are cute but oh so corny.its all the youngsters voting with their mobiles that are getting them through. COME BACK NIKKI! WE LOVE YOU

Megan Coghlan, ...

Hi Louis!A few weeks before the final of the x-factor, I and my friends had the pleasure of meeting your brother Frank and his wife Wendy while they were staying in my house for a party in my neighbours, Liz and Brendan.We were delighted to meet them as we are avid followers of Westlife and have been for years. On April 11th, we will travel to the point to see them play for our tenth time.We live in Dublin and already have our outfits planned for the big night!We have oftened dreamed of meeting westlife and came so close in a 98fm auction where you could meet and greet. We bid eight hundred euros and were very disappointed to be outbid.We were wondering if you could make this dream come true. The three of us are in our early teens and would love to meet the guys, even if its only for a minute.Kind Regards, Ciara and Nicola Fagan and Megan Coghlan.
