2010 X-Factor winner Matt Cardle (who has been all but forgotten) is annoyed that X-Factor finalists One Direction and Cher Lloyd have released their singles before him while his project seems to have been put on the back burner by Simon Cowell.
He told the Sunday Mirror,
They’re competition and it is s**t they got to release before the winner of the actual show. It’s also worrying me that if One Direction decide to get slicker and go for more of an older market, then I’m stuffed too.
“It shouldn’t have happened really. Simon’s naughty. I just hope I’ll be able to cement myself into the charts before that happens. Otherwise I’ll be fuming. I can’t win unless I have an album that does the talking, and I think it does.
“If I had my album finished by the time Cher Lloyd and One Direction got their tracks in the charts then I would have been really bothered. But the truth is I wasn’t finished. Simon let me go away and co-write the album and work on this as a long-term project.”
Oh Matt you should know by now that when it come’s to X-Factor the finalists nearly always end up doing better than the actual winner (Look at 09 winner Joe McElderry).
No surprises here Matt!
