X Factor 2010: Wagner ‘close to meltdown’ over ‘guilty pleasures’ song choice


 

Wagner ‘close to meltdown’ over X Factor ‘guilty pleasures’ week song choices as tune Cher will tackle tonight remains a secret

Last updated at 4:43 PM on 23rd October 2010

X Factor fan favourite Wagner Carrilho is reportedly at breaking point before tonight’s show because he feels he’s been given yet another wrong song choice.

This week, the 12 remaining contestants will be tackling songs with a ‘guilty pleasures’ theme, as well as the now obligatory group performance.

However, the Brazilian tenor is devastated at being given a mash-up The Spice Girls’ Spice Up Your Life and yet another Ricky Martin song, this time, Livin’ la Vida Loca.

It’s said that Wagner feels he’s been given tunes which he sees as totally unsuited to his voice because of comments he made about the show earlier in the week.

The 54-year-old, who was initially going to sing Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s Relax, fears bosses are trying to oust him from the show.

Insiders say he hasn’t yet managed to get the songs right in rehearsals, adding that the star is on the ‘brink of a breakdown.’

A source told The Sun: ‘Wagner’s so nervous, he forgets his words. He knows that judges like Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh won’t like what he said.’

Wagner let rip in a phone call to a so-called friend who recorded their conversation.

The former PE teacher from Dudley raged: ‘Simon Cowell can decide who he wants at number one. It is so double glazing, it is so block paving, it’s all sales, it’s bull****.

‘They will never let me beat the English. They will not let a Brazilian win.’

‘If you see me in the finals, I will be getting songs overnight that I cannot sing properly. You only sing what you want once or twice and then that’s it.’

Simon Cowell, 51, called his medley of Ricky Martin’s She Bangs and B52’s Love Shack during the first live show ‘bonkers’, while Dannii slammed his rendition of Tom Jones’ Help Yourself last weekend. Wagner feels none of the songs so far have let him show off his natural operatic tenor tones.

Meanwhile, Mary Byrne is said to have had a meltdown over the song that Louis has given her too because she couldn’t hit the high notes.

The Tesco worker cracked after being given Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s Motown classic Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – though why Louis deemed the song a ‘guilty pleasure’ is anyone’s guess. 

Louis said: ‘Mary just freaked out. She didn’t like the song. She was in tears and I was really worried about her.’

Louis eventually relented and agreed to change her song – Mary will now sing another classic that shouldn’t make any music lover feel guilty in the slightest, Ben E King’s I Who Have Nothing.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Belle Amie will be singing Footloose, but they fought to change it to The Pretenders’ hit I’ll Stand By You – later covered by X Factor judge Cheryl Cole in Girls Aloud.

Treyc Cohen meanwhile is expected to tackle Led Zeppelin’s anthem Stairway To Heaven – another baffling choice considering it’s supposed to be ‘guilty pleasures’ week.

Elsewhere, John Adeleye is singing Eighties classic Zoom by Fat Larry’s Band, Katie Waissel Louis Prima’s I Wan’na Be Like You (The Monkey Song) from Disney’s The Jungle Book.

Aiden Grimshaw rather bizarrely is doing Shirley Bassey’s Diamonds Are Forever, Matt Cardle will be channelling his inner schoolgirl for Britney Spears’ Baby One More Time and One Direction are doing Pink’s heartrending ballad Nobody Knows.

However, mysteriously, Cher, Paije and Rebecca’s song choices have been kept secret, though rumours abound that Ms Lloyd is to tackle Offspring’s Pretty Fly For A White Guy. 

The X Factor is on tonight at 7.45pm on ITV1.
