* TheWoobie: Wagner has been getting this, despite being tone deaf and missing notes he has proven to be quite popular, even he is aware of his problems as he apologises to the judges for it. However several scathing comments from fellow contestants and judges have made him more sympathetic to the audience.

** Another notable example from the 2016 series is Caitlyn Vanbeck, a KellyClarkson soundalike who was one of the favorites to make the live shows, but flubbed the lyrics during her Judges' Houses performance and ended up missing out.

* HilariousInHindsight: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNhZlP49d5g In the series 7 Judge's Houses, Simon and Sinitta are talking about the groups they want to send to the finals.]] The eight candidates were Belle Amie, Diva Fever, F.Y.D., Husstle, One Direction, Princes & Rogues, The Reason, and Twem. When Sinitta mentions the superstar potential of one of the groups, Simon says "Not in a million, billion years!" and comments that "no one is going to put them on their bedroom wall." Fast forward two years, and millions of teenage girls in America, let alone the U.K., do have [[Music/OneDirection one of these groups]] on their walls.

** Janet Devlin was considered to be the runaway favourite during the early stages of the 2011 series. However, her performances started to get worse as the series went on, eventually resulting in her falling apart spectacularly in the third-last week, and being voted off the show.

Emily Middlemas from the 2016 series had a similar trajectory, but at least managed to make the semifinals.

** Gifty Louise was seen as a favourite in the 2016 series, when in Halloween week, she was derided for singing a Fifth Harmony song that was mostly obscure for the second time in the series after doing so week 1 without trouble, but with some question from the judges, as it was widely seen as a front for Simon to promote his X Factor USA act, who have had a couple of major UK hits as well, one of which Gifty did in bootcamp. Still, no one expected her to be eliminated for the sake of Four of Diamonds, who were in their second sing off, and fans expressed outrage, with many wanting to boycott the show.

In reality, Gifty never placed in the top six of the table in any of her 4 weeks despite her clear fanbase.
