    Once again singers who can't sing but prance around a lot win out over a strange-looking but enchanting guy with a good voice and no gimmicks. I loved your smile, Carmillo, and sorry you aren't still there.

    Please reduce the number of screaming girls at shows it is really putting me off and may cause me to turn away- I have already started to mute judges comments becuse of the screaming lthough did not want to.

    It was pretty sad Josh left but the fame got the better of him and he did something that has probably sadden alot of people! Look at me, 13 and saying all this big word and wise stuff lol! But yeah Josh was a great singer but I don't think was ready for all of this

    Hey Mel how about giving Carmello a decent song ! what was that song ? you are clearly showing favouritism ...give Carmello a song that people know that is catchy and suits his voice say by Buble or Sinatra and watch him go!

    Enough said lets move on! So pleased Carmello got another chance there's a good human being , no gimmics what you see is what you get ... team player ...supportive to his fellow contestants , diplomatic ...humble ...great voice and his smile is so contageous. Even if he doesn't win the X factor I think he is already a winner in the hearts of Australians and he will succeed anyway.
