X Factor - X Factor Stars Call for Kye Sones to Replace Christopher Maloney on Tour

Kye Sones could be replacing Christopher Maloney on the X Factor Tour 2012. The lineup change will be discussed by the show’s executives today, after several contestants including James Arthur, Ella Henderson, Jahmene Douglas and Union J showed their support for Kye over Twitter, with tweets like “@UnionJworld: #getkyeonthexfactortour wuld love @Kyesones1 to be there. Spread the word peeps much love x” :-)”. X Factor winner, James Arthur, tweeted simply “#getkyeonthexfactortour.”

The strong backlash came after Maloney’s rant backstage at the show final on Sunday, during which the 28-year-old singer clashed with backroom staff and used offensive language towards fellow reject Carolynne Poole.

If the show’s producers heed the popular vote, Maloney will not be appearing on the tour in 2013. Kye Sones, on the other hand, has received huge amounts of support from the X Factor contestants, despite being eliminated from the competition as early as week 5. In the spirit of the social media age,

Christopher Maloney also took to Twitter to express his disappointment with the situation. Maloney tweeted "Plz stop online abuse,all I done was follow my dream,coming 3rd was an achievement.feel gutted I didn't win an im unwell right now, plz xx."
