Former 'X Factor' act Only The Young are backing Fleur East to win the competition this year
Only The Young are backing Fleur East to win 'The X Factor'.
The four-piece pop band left the competition last month and they are backing the singer-and-rapper - who is mentored by Simon Cowell - to be this year's winner because she is a confident and unique artist.
When asked who they think is going to win, Betsey-Blue told BANG Showbiz: "Fleur. I don't think there's been anyone like Fleur who has been on 'The X Factor' before."
Her bandmate Parisa Tarjomani added: "She brings something different, she's got confidence. Not only has she got a good voice but she raps as well, she's really good."
The group - also comprised of Mikey Bromley and Charlie George - were surprised when previous favourite Andrea Faustini found himself in the bottom two recently.
However, they insist no one can take their place on the show for granted because the competition is wide open as it reaches its climax.
Betsey-Blue said: "I think anyone can end up in the bottom two so when Andrea was there he was just unlucky. Anyone can win at this point and anyone can go at this point."
When asked if Andrea needs to diversify his performances in order to win, Mikey - who attended the launch of Bluewater's Winter Wonderland Christmas attraction with his bandmates last week - said: "Andrea is a powerful singer and is great at what he does, I think if he came out and did something else, people might not like that."
