Altiyan Child’s Is The Only X Factor Contestant With A Record Deal

Well the record industry didn’t think much of The X Factor talent if Altiyan Child’s the winner of the show is the only one currently with a record deal.

I would have thought Sally Chatfield could have locked one up.

The Herald Sun article also reveals that Altiyan almost left the house three times because of the way the housemates treated him. He is particularly pointing the finger at the under 25’s group.

Altiyan thought that he should have been accorded more respect as he clean their skid marks.

The article states:

He refused to name names.

“I couldn’t believe how people could ignore you in the same house,” he said.

“I’m glad that I still can get shocked by humans and I’m glad that I’m not that insensitive.

“I would say ‘good morning’, tip toe around at night, clean up after their skid marks in the bathroom.

“I did everything out of the goodness of my heart, but I just couldn’t get any love back.

“That was very hard.”

Good news for Altiyan is his record debuted this week at number four on the charts. (Source:

No news yet on whether a second season of The X Factor will be commissioned.

Fingers crossed Sally can get a deal soon, though if didn’t happen within days of the show finishing, then it won’t be with Sony. I also hope that 7 realises the show has potential to build a bigger audience and renews it. Congrats to Altiyan for selling 30,000 albums last week – almost triple that of the sole other new entrant on the chart – Michael Jackson.

Its sad if it doesn’t come back next year because it has a lot of potential. The ratings weren’t that bad most weeks. It seems to me that there was an agenda in the media to kill the show. In the UK the media backs the show 100% and thats why its a huge ratings winner. Its all over the front pages every week, thats what draws viewers in.

This guy is a skidmark on the noble art of music.

You mean Andrew Lawson doesn’t have a record deal?

dmc- who? :S

Props to Altiyan. Don’t like him, but he deserves it.

Hope Sally is picked up. I think she will be.

X-Factor received good ratings, so it should be back. Schedule will probably be different though (not up against Masterchef in any format!). 😉

After the success of the Xfactor I think it will be commissioned for a long time. If you give love and feel like there is none in return, don’t change, the law of reciprocity will save you and great things come to those that wait.

Sally won’t get hired by Sony because all she can do is basically stand there and sing.. Whereas Altiyan Childs puts on an ENERGETIC, heart felt, SHOW !!
