Hey, this is Ariel Swaringen. The newest moderator of VFTG. I’m filling in for Ava tonight as she is working on getting tonight’s show on YouTube Friday.
As Simon narrowed down his groups to four and the Final 16 are selected, Michelle (Steele), Holly, Ava, and myself have made our picks to win The X Factor.
|Danielle Geimer or Khaya Cohen||Sweet Suspense or Danielle Geimer|
|Best of Worst (Ava & Holly Only, VFTBoW pick)|
At the end, Holly (Everman) decided that Alex & Sierra is considered to be a duet (and this officially makes Alex thus far the only male Vote for the Girls pick). But Alex & Sierra are a duo, Holly and Ava decided that it was best to include Alex & Sierra as a VFTG Pick. Should Alex & Sierra win the competition, the VFTG Victory will only be awarded to Sierra Denton and SIERRA DENTON ONLY! Ava, meanwhile decided to make Alex & Sierra her “Vote for the Best of Worst” pick.
There are exceptions as far as males as a VFTG pick:
1. Alex & Sierra is an example as they are considered a duet.
2. One male is in a predominately female group (ex: two females and a male)
We could not accept Lyric145 as a VFTG pick because Lyric DaQueen (ironically was a Vote for the Worst pick) is in a predominately male group and the British version of VFTG (VFTG UK) could not accept Brick City as a VFTG pick because there were three males and a female in that particular group.
However, one pick that Ava kept mentioning is Alex & Sierra. Holly decided that it counted only as 50% male and 50% female, but eventually decided to do something never done in VFTG History. Ava said in tonight’s show, “We have decided that Alex & Sierra is declared a VFTG pick even though there is a male in the duo, and that is considered as a VFTG pick and should Alex & Sierra win The X Factor, we will declare a VFTG win with Sierra Denton getting the VFTG Victory, in addition to a public vote to determine the first non-VFTG Victory (most likely Angie Miler from American Idol 12) to join the VFTG Hall of Fame (currently consisting of Melanie Amaro, Cassadee Pope, Candice Glover, and Danielle Bradbery) and whomever wins The X Factor season 4 will determine if there is a ‘Double VFTG Victory’ or a ‘Double VFTG Loss.'”
Alex & Sierra are offically a VFTG pick.
